How to Make Breakfast Wraps

Feel excited to wake up in the morning with four of the best Breakfast Wraps that will make your day so much better. Every breakfast wrap is easy, delicious, and most importantly, healthy for you.

Once you learn how to make Breakfast Wraps, you won’t go a day without your first meal of the day!

Ingredients

My Breakfast Wraps are not complete without these:

Tortilla

Put the “wrap” in breakfast wrap with a tortilla.

The tortilla is a thin, round, and chewy flatbread that is popularly used in Mexican dishes. It is usually made of wheat or corn to make them smooth and tasty. You might have eaten it in Mexican dishes before.

Once cooked, the tortilla will have a slightly crunchy and crisp texture. It is often used to make tacos, quesadillas, burritos, pizza, fajitas, and more. Tortilla is truly a versatile ingredient in the kitchen.

Nowadays, you can buy ready-to-use tortillas, but you can also make them at home with flour, water, salt, and oil. I love using them for tortilla wraps and breakfast crepes!

Beef

Give your breakfast wrap a meaty and savory quality with some beef.

Do you have leftover meat from your favorite beef recipes? Break them into bite-sized chunks and add them to your breakfast wraps. Beef is always an excellent filling choice because of its flavor and texture.

The beef also adds a smoky, savory, and juicy quality that’s already seasoned to perfection. According to My Fearless Kitchen, the best beef seasoning includes basil, cayenne, mixed herbs, and other spices.

Chicken

Aside from beef, chicken is also a fantastic meat option for your wraps.

Chicken has a naturally delicious flavor that you can improve with herbs and spices. Once you cook it, the chicken will also have a juicy and tender texture that goes well with the crisp vegetables and crunchy tortilla.

I suggest using boneless chicken breast that you can easily chop and add to the wraps. You can also use leftover chicken from Roast Chicken, Crispy Chicken Wings, or Air Fryer Fried Chicken!

Hot dogs

Don’t like beef or chicken? Maybe you can try hot dogs!

When it comes to breakfast meat, hotdogs make excellent choices. You can serve them for kids and adults for a smoky and meaty flavor. Hot dogs are also easy and quick to cook, even on a busy morning.

Cook it on the stove or in the air fryer and slice it for the wraps. Did you know that hotdogs also make perfect ingredients for Breakfast Sandwich, Sausage Rolls, and Bread Pizza

Eggs

It won’t be a breakfast meal with eggs, right?

You can never go wrong with classic eggs in your breakfast wraps. In this recipe, I also suggest using boiled eggs for a soft and creamy texture from the egg white and egg yolk.

Boiled eggs also don’t have oil, so the wraps won’t become greasy and oily. I’m sure you will love the effect it will have on the dish. I always do the Boiled Eggs Hack for the perfect hard-boiled eggs!

Avocado

You always need your fruits in the morning.

When it comes to fruits for breakfast, avocados should be one of your top choices. It has a creamy and buttery consistency with a nutty and earthy taste. I especially love the taste of avocados with other vegetables.

You may have already tried it with toast and salad, but its moist texture works well with tortilla wraps too. If you know how to store avocados, then you can make Avocado Banana Milkshake to go with your breakfast wraps!

Lettuce

Wrap recipes are so much better with lettuce.

Lettuce has a fresh and crunchy quality that gives a satisfying feeling every time you bite into the wraps. The mild flavor of the lettuce also balances out the flavors of the other fillings you want to use.

I suggest adding lettuce because of how healthy it is for you. Style Craze mentioned that lettuce improves weight loss, brain function, heart health, and sleep quality.

Cucumber

Just like avocados, the cucumber is also a great fruit for your wraps.

Don’t forget to add a layer of moisture to your breakfast wraps with cucumber. It has a high water content, but it is low in calories to give you a satisfying meal. The cucumber will surely make you love breakfast wraps even more.

In fact, the cucumber can have a cooling and refreshing quality to energize you for the day. If you have a piece of cucumber left, then you can add it to a Green Smoothie too!

Tomatoes

Whether it’s sandwiches or wraps, tomatoes make excellent fillings.

Make the most out of tomatoes by using them for this recipe. They will also add a sweet, citrusy, and pulpy quality to meat and veggies. Since they are juicy inside, you can make sure that the tomatoes will give a moist and decadent texture too.

The good thing about tomatoes is that they pair well with other breakfast foods. For instance, I also use tomatoes to cook Egg Fried Plantains, Salads, and Jollof Rice for the whole family!

Bell peppers

Make breakfast wraps like no other with bell peppers in the mix.

Remember to relish the fresh, sweet, and fruity taste of bell peppers. You can use red, yellow, or green bell peppers to give the filling a crunchy and crisp twist. They’re not just delicious, but they’re also fragrant.

Whether you use them raw or cooked, the bell peppers will still deliver good results. These bell peppers are also best for Fried Rice, Grilled Croaker, and Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry!

Onion

Nothing compares to a breakfast wrap with onions.

Adding the onion is the best way to give the dish a pungent, sweet, and slightly spicy taste to any filling. Even if you don’t cook it, the onion’s guaranteed to give awesome flavors.

You can use it raw for a juicy and crisp feeling at every bite. The onion also makes the wraps more fragrant and appetizing from the smell alone. I love using white onions for the quality I’m looking for.

Jalapeño pepper

Make breakfast wraps exciting with some jalapeño peppers.

In case you want a kick of spice in your breakfast wraps, the jalapeño pepper can help you with that. It’s not too spicy because it also has a hint of sweet and fruity flavors.

Adding these peppers is a great way of giving your guests a wide range of flavors to enjoy. Aside from jalapeño peppers, you can also go for scotch bonnets or other spicy peppers.

Sweet pepper

While buying bell peppers, why not throw in some sweet peppers too?

Sweet peppers can give the dish a saccharine, fruity, and floral flavor to balance out the meat. The riper the sweet peppers are, the sweeter they will be. Like bell peppers, they can also add a vibrant and fun color to the breakfast wraps too.

The sweet peppers will surely complement the bell peppers and even the tomatoes. They’re not just sweet, but they also have a hint of fruity touch to them. It’s no wonder that they’re perfect for breakfast.

Sweetcorns

They may be small but sweetcorns can turn your wraps around.

Whenever you make Corn on the Cob, set aside some of the sweetcorn for the breakfast wraps. The kernels will add a sweet and buttery flavor you will love. Just shuck the corn to get all of the kernels you need.

Sweetcorn also has a juicy and tender texture once you bite into it. The burst of flavor adds to the pleasant morning experience. Biting into them certainly gives the dish a tasteful quality.

Spices and condiments

Take your breakfast wraps to the next level with spices and condiments like ketchup, mayonnaise, smoked paprika, and honey. These will surely improve the flavor of the meat, fruits, and veggies.

Discover your favorite combination and use them for your wraps. They will surely escalate the flavor and overall quality of the dish.

Breakfast Wrap Variations

There’s always a way to customize Breakfast Wraps.

For tortilla alternatives, I recommend using leafy greens, nori sheets, flax wraps, or other similar ingredients. The wrapping technique will vary, depending on which substitute you use. 

Moreover, aside from meat, you may also opt for hummus, tuna, shrimp, mackerel, duck, turkey, salmon, kebab, and more. If you want to incorporate more vegetables, then I suggest zucchini, carrots, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, olives, etc. 

Refrain from using too many watery or moist vegetables to prevent the tortilla wrap from becoming soggy. On the other hand, dressing can include cheese, ranch dressing, sriracha, hollandaise, marinara sauce, and even pesto sauce.

Tortilla wraps can also be filled with fruits such as bananas, berries, pineapples, and kiwi. The great thing about tortilla wraps is that they’re highly customizable, so you can prepare them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack time. 

  • Plate: Assemble the dish on a large round plate.
  • Pizza cutter: Cut the tortilla with a pizza cutter. 
  • Knife: Slice the ingredients and the tortilla with a knife.
