breakfast wraps

Instead of the usual weekday bread toast with peanut butter and jam, we start off our weekend with these simple breakfast tortilla wraps.

This delicious breakfast treat is so easy to throw together on a lazy Sunday morning...even if your are only half awake ;)

Breakfast Wraps
(serves 4)


4 tortilla wraps (I used wholemeal wraps)
4 slices of breakfast ham
4 slices of cheddar cheese
some butter
some dried parsley flakes


* Cut tortilla wraps into halves.
* Cut breakfast ham and cheese slices diagonally.
* Place one piece of ham and one piece of cheese onto the wrap (as shown). Fold into half. Repeat with the rest of the wraps.
* Heat a frying pan on medium-low heat.
* For each folded wrap, spread some butter on the surface. Sprinkle with dried parsley flakes. Place buttered surface down on the hot frying pan. Spread the other side of the wrap with butter (facing up in the pan), sprinkle with dried parsley flakes. (You could also skip this step and simply put some butter in the pan and pan fry the wraps, but I find this method helps reduce fumes, due to the low smoke point of butter, to the minimal.)
* Flip over the wrap and cook till both sides are golden. Repeat the same for the rest of the wraps. Serve warm.

Nice and easy one! Thanks for sharing.
I use Mission original wraps for pizza base that day and has 4 left in the freezer. Can I use the wrap for this tortilla recipe or must I specifically buy tortilla wrap? I can make this into the recess snacks, can I?

Hi Sherlyn you can use Mission wrap. I used another brand which I bought from fairprice. You can make it for recess snack but the wrap may not be as good as served warm.
