Breakfast on the Go

Emily agreed, once again, to share more of her thoughts on Madison Ave Musings and I couldn't be more excited! I love that my friends are just as excited about blogging as I am and that they are looking at their eating habits and routines to see if they have any great blog material.

Consider this an open invitation. If you have any interesting meal ideas, creative recipes, or unique observations, snap a few pictures, write your thoughts down and send them to me. You never know, you might even see yourself featured on MAM!

But back to Emily. Every morning she brings an egg wrap to work for breakfast. Her day starts earlier than most so it makes sense to eat at work. Considering she is a vegetarian and works as preschool teacher, there are serious restrictions on what she brings, and likes, to eat. When she told me about her egg wrap (think Dunkin's egg and cheese sandwich) I was intrigued. They sounded tasty and really easy to make.

Check them out for yourself. Emily's easy to make breakfast egg wraps.

1 large egg
1/4 cup southwest egg beaters
1 low carb, flax wrap
3 slices of Land 'O Lakes white American cheese

The above listed ingredients make 1 wrap, but these wraps store well so making 5 at a time is highly recommended.

Combine egg and egg beaters into a skillet.

Cook eggs as if you were making an omelet, making sure both sides are done well.

Add half of cheese to one side of the omelet.

Fold omelet in half.

Cut up the omelet so that it fits better into the wrap. If you want, you can make scrambled eggs with cheese instead of making an omelet.

Place eggs and the other half of the cheese on to one half of the wrap. Then roll up the wrap and cover it in plastic wrap for safe keeping. Egg wraps usually last for about 3 days in the refrigerator and longer in the freezer. Store accordingly.

To heat up, just place wrap (without plastic wrap!) in the microwave on high for about a minute. It warms nicely and is a deliciously filling breakfast.

Thanks Em! These look fantastic! Do you have great breakfast on the go tricks that help keep you full until lunch and speed up your morning?


  1. I grew up in California where egg burritos are a staple. So easy, versatile, and yummy.

  2. I love eggs in a burrito! I just introduced them to my boyfriend this past year and he loves them now! I can't imagine anyone not eating eggs this way at least once, or 30 times, in their life :-)

  3. Thanks guys! I LOVE eggs too :)
