Making wonderful breakfast burritos is pretty easy but managing to make them a bit healthier than the usual sausage eggs and potatoes recipe is a little bit more challenging…
Unless you use the miracle fresh vegetable that packs in the nutrition without really changing much of the taste or consistence of the final product.
The Breakfast Spinach Egg Wrap Recipe was born!
This wrap recipe has lots of steps so be sure to read the entire thing before you start.
Chopped fresh spinach pretty much disappears into any liquid you combine it with so sometimes even the most decadent tasty items can at least leave you a little big less guilty with the addition of this super food.
Start out by browning the sausage in a cast iron skillet over medium heat and drain well.
Prepare the hash browns according to the directions on the package (You can make hash browns from scratch or use leftover potatoes)
- Combine hash browns and sausage in skillet and set aside.
- Chop onion, peppers and mushrooms, add green chile’s and saute on medium heat in 1 tsp Canola oil until tender.
- Crack 12 eggs into the pan with the sauteed veggies and stir gently scraping the sides and bottom of the large non-stick skillet.
- OPTIONAL (Discard 1/2 of the egg yolks if you are watching your cholesterol and fat intake)
- As eggs start to cook add chopped spinach.
- Add shredded and cream cheese.
- Combine the egg mixture, hash browns and sausage. Cook on low head for a few minutes to allow all the flavors to blend and the cheeses to melt.
Place 3 tablespoons of the mixture in the center of each wrap and secure like you would a burrito or egg roll.
This recipe makes a dozen spinach egg wraps.
After they cool a bit I place each wrap in a square of waxed paper and place them into a freezer bag or container.
This will give you 12 mornings worth of a quick high protein, high nutrition, low carb breakfasts.
To reheat just take out the individually wrapped Spinach egg wraps and heat in the microwave covered for 60 – 90 seconds.
This is a time consuming breakfast recipe that I only do about once a month although my husband wishes he had these Spinach egg breakfast wraps every morning.
