Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Egg Wraps

Freezer Egg and Vegetable Breakfast Wraps - Mom's Kitchen Handbook

Thank you to Flatout for sponsoring this post.

You might think that months of developing recipes for my breakfast cookbook would put a damper on my interest in morning food. But indeed, it has not. In fact, every week I seem to think of something new that I wish had fit into the pages of Rise & Shine. This recipe is one of them. Let me tell you why:

It’s Darn Tasty.

Scrambled eggs with peppers, zucchini, fresh chives, and Cheddar wrapped snug in soft flatbread is hard to beat for a satisfying start to the day. Whisking a bit of cottage cheese into the eggs makes them extra fluffy.

Good for you.

The recipe calls for a cup of vegetables and is packed with protein thanks to the eggs and cottage cheese. Using Multigrain Flatout Flatbread means extra fiber, too.

Portable.

For busy mornings when breakfast needs to come along for the ride, tuck a breakfast wrap into a napkin or sandwich bag and take it to go.

Freezer-Friendly

The recipe makes four wraps and can easily be doubled. Pop what you don’t eat in the freezer until next time. To reheat, just microwave on high for two minutes.

Easy to Make

Scrambling eggs is one of the first skills I taught my kids in the kitchen. With this recipe, they can make breakfast for themselves, and for you too. Littler ones will need a little guidance with the knife and help at the stove, more experienced kids can do the whole thing on their own. Let them!

Ingredients

  • 5 eggs
  • 1/3 cup cottage cheese
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced zucchini
  • 1 heaping tablespoon minced chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • 4 Multi-Grain Flatout flatbreads (or whole-grain flour tortillas)
  • 8 thin slices Cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, cottage cheese, salt, and several cracks of black pepper.
  2. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan (ideally cast iron or non-stick) over medium-high heat. Add the red pepper and saute a minute or so. Add the zucchini and saute until just tender. 

  3. Drop the heat to medium-low and add the eggs and chives to the pan. Scramble with the vegetables until cooked.

  4. Lay 2 slices of cheese on the center of each flatbread and microwave on high until melted. 

  5. Spoon the egg mixture onto the flatbreads and roll up like a burrito. 

  6. Serve warm. See notes for freezing instructions. 

Recipe Notes

 To freeze, let cool, wrap in plastic and store in a ziplock freezer bag. To reheat, put straight from freezer to microwave and heat on high until warm.

I would expect they would keep well for a few weeks.

And when you heat to eat, how do you keep the wrap from getting soggy?

HI Anita,

If you reheat them straight from the freezer, I haven’t found an issue with them being soggy. You can set them unwrapped on a paper towel and then pop them in the microwave.

Do you have any nutritional values?

Hi Patsy,

The recipe includes the total calories, which is 291 per wrap. Beyond that, you could run your own nutrition analysis if you like. My Fitness Pal has an option for free nutrient analysis.

Have not seen the “flatbreads” in the store……..where would I look for them?

Here is a link to a store-locator. You can plug in your zip code and see where they are sold. Alternatively, you can use flour tortillas.

I am getting ready to sell/ship egg-white wraps – 130 calories each (3 gram carb/3 gram protein). Do you think there would be an interest?

Thank you for your input.
