Breakfast Wraps

Prep/Total Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

6 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup diced fully cooked ham
4 flour tortillas, warmed

In a small bowl, whisk the egg, milk and pepper. In a large skillet, heat the oil. Add the egg mixture; cook and stir over medium heat until the eggs are completely set. Stir in the cheese and ham.

Spoon egg mixture down the center of each tortilla; roll up. Serve immediately, or wrap in plastic wrap and freeze in a resealable plastic bag.

To use frozen wraps: Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Remove plastic wrap; wrap tortilla in a moist microwave-safe paper towel. Microwave on high for 30-60 seconds or until heated through. Serve immediately.

Tips and Tricks
This is a great way to make sure you eat a healthy breakfast. I make a large batch of these and freeze most of them. They are also versatile. Substitute mushrooms, chopped tomatoes or spinach for the ham, or try different varieties of cheese.
Make It Healthier
Use whole wheat tortillas. Use egg substitute to lower the cholesterol. Use skim or low fat milk.
How Kids Can Help
Stir the egg mixture, help fill the tortillas.
