Kids love wraps for lunch for their versatility and deliciousness. And parents like to prepare them because they’re so quick and easy. So, why not take this lunchtime favorite and bring the goodness to breakfast? Wraps can be wholesome, filling, and fun, making “the most important meal of the day” one to wake up looking forward to. Here are two variations kids will love, whether they eat them at the kitchen table or on the go. Each recipe is for one wrap.
Cheesy Egg Twist
Eggs are a great source of protein, and what kid doesn’t love cheese? Mix ‘em up in a wrap and breakfast is served. Here’s a tasty recipe you can make in minutes.
1 whole wheat (or plain) 10 inch tortilla
¼ cup shredded cheese of choice
1 teaspoon chopped dried parsley
1 tablespoon butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Scramble the egg with the cheese in a heated pan with melted butter. Toss in parsley and season with salt and pepper. Once cooked, place the egg scramble in the middle of the tortilla and roll up like a burrito. For a toasty tortilla, slice in half and place back inside the pan until each side is golden brown. Serve with ketchup for dipping if desired.
Honey Banana Mash
For kids with a sweet tooth, the combo of honey and bananas will hit the spot. Energizing and delicious, this wrap is sure to be a first-thing-in-the-morning favorite.
1 plain 10 inch tortilla
2 tablespoons honey
1 medium super-ripe banana
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon brown sugar
Mash the banana with the other ingredients in a bowl. Spoon onto the tortilla across the center and roll up. Slice down the middle or cut into 1-inch “pinwheels.”
Note: You may use maple syrup, agave syrup, or jam in place of honey.
