Cold cereal is a snack for me, not a breakfast option. I find that breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day and it is my favorite meal. With two little kids, my morning routine has become more of a short order cook scramble than a relaxing, coffee sipping, paper reading experience. Still, I feel energized and excited to sit with my family, face the day and eat a good meal.
I tend to get in breakfast food ruts. Lately, my go-to has been whole wheat toast topped with natural peanut butter and a half banana. Sometimes, we run out of one of my key ingredients and I find myself agitated and forced to veer off course. I recover by making something completely different. Now and then, my unexpected breakfast solution is the forced beginning of a new rut!
These breakfast rollups were the result of low food supplies. I scanned the bare fridge and pulled out tortillas, a few eggs and two last slices of bacon. Rather than serving a breakfast burrito, I cut the egg-filled tortilla into these little pinwheels for my daughters. I found that for myself, it was more fun to pick up the little pieces.
Certainly, this is no groundbreaking invention nor a fancy new recipe. But, if by chance you are also in a rut and looking for a new idea, maybe these breakfast rollups will give you a boost.
Easy Breakfast Rollup
Makes 1 serving
1 small flour tortilla (6 inches)
