Get your morning started off right with this amazing wrap!

Thank you again for giving me another amazing recipe! I tried this wrap this morning and it was amazing! I love starting the day off right with a big hearty breakfast, especially if I am going to the gym or have a busy day and don't have much time to eat. If you want a different take on this morning goodness you can also make a wrap using salsa and mexican mixed cheese with your eggs and take that with you for your long day. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because starting your day off with something filling will help you make it to lunch without giving into tempting snacks along the way. Also, it boosts your metabolism and new studies have started showing that people who eat breakfast weigh less that those who don't, so there is no reason not to do this for you and your waistline.

Makes 1 Serving
1 La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat Low-Carb/Low-Fat Tortilla, Large (or other low calorie tortilla)
1/2 cup chopped spinach
1/3 cup fa t-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters)
1 1/2 tbsp. Reduced Fat Natural Feta Cheese
1 tbsp. Hunt’s Tomatoes, Fire Roasted Diced with Garlic
2 pieces sun-dried tomato in oil & spices, chopped
  • Spray a small pan with nonstick spray, and bring to medium heat. Add egg substitute, and cook to form an egg patty (flipping and folding until firm). Remove egg patty and set aside.
  • Remove the pan from heat, re-spray, and then return to medium heat. Add chopped spinach and both types of tomatoes. Stirring occasionally, cook for about 1 minute (until spinach has wilted). Add the cheese to the pan and cook for an additional 30 seconds (cheese should be melt-y). Remove from heat, and allow to cool slightly. Meanwhile, heat tortilla in the microwave until slightly warm.
  • Place veggie/cheese mixture in the center of the tortilla. Place egg patty on top, and wrap the tortilla up envelope style (folding the sides in first, and then rolling it up from the bottom). Place wrap in the toaster oven (with the seam-side down) and bake for 1 - 2 minutes (until thoroughly heated). Serve.
