HEALTHY BREAKFAST WRAP
Time: 10 minutes
Ah breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Although, when I was younger, I frequently missed this holy grail of meals because, well, I got to sleep in longer. It wasn’t until my years became older and wiser, that I realised just how essential it is to kick start your metabolism. So now I always make time for it. For an extra ‘kick’ to this start, I add chilli flakes to really get your blood going.
2 wholemeal wraps
6 slices of deli turkey
2 slices of light and tasty cheese
Half an avocado
Barbeque sauce (sugar reduced)
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
Chilli flakes (optional and to your liking)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Extra virgin olive oil spray
Step 1: Put a non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Spray with extra virgin olive oil and toast each side of the wraps for about 20 seconds.
Step 2: Put the wraps on plates and add the mayo and barbecue sauce, spreading both about 3-4cm wide and all the way down to about three quarters, leaving the bottom quarter free. Lay three pieces of deli turkey over each wrap. Halve the cheese slices and layer the two halves over the turkey for each wrap – keeping that last quarter free throughout. Turn on your grill to a medium heat, and then place the wraps under the grill, keeping an eye on them to make sure they don’t crisp.
Step 3: In a medium bowl whisk the eggs, salt, pepper and chilli flakes until the eggs are frothy. In the same pan, add the extra virgin olive oil and scramble the eggs, taking them off when they’re still slightly moist and glistening.
Step 4: Take the wraps out of the grill (the cheese should be melted). Layer the scrambled eggs over each of the wraps. Use a teaspoon to scoop out the avocado and add the final layer. If you’re feeling a little saucy this morning, add extra sauce over the top.
Step 5: Fold up the bottom of the wrap, then fold over the sides. And voilà! They’re ready to dig into.
