What’s the difference between a burrito and wrap?
I like how the authors of the “Wraps: Easy Recipes for Handheld Meals” cookbook define the difference:
“The burrito was invented in northern Mexico,” but a “wrap, on the other hand, is like a burrito with frequent flier miles.” That’s the funniest description of a wrap I’ve come across yet.
Topping Ideas for Breakfast Burrito Recipes
Scramble eggs then fold in any of the following toppings before placing your egg mixture into the center of each tortilla.
- bell pepper slices
- white cheddar cheese sauce
- bacon bits
- Swiss cheese slices
- feta cheese
- sausage link slices
- chopped onion
- grated Mexican cheese
Seasonings for the Breakfast Spinach Wrap or Breakfast Burrito
Use your favorite seasonings, or see how you like the breakfast burrito recipe with a pinch of salt or sea salt and Italian seasoning. And definitely add a tablespoon or two of unsalted butter with the eggs. There’s nothing like butter to add richness.
You can whip up a breakfast wrap or burrito quickly on busy mornings. It should only take a couple of minutes to do the meal prep.
Scramble the eggs, add the toppings, and serve the egg mixture in a warm tortilla. If you’re in a hurry, wrap it up in a paper towel to go. Otherwise, set the table, place the wraps on a large plate, and enjoy a sit-down meal with the family.
Breakfast Spinach Wraps
easy spinach wrap breakfast
- 6 Jimmy Dean sausage links
- 4 Eggs
- 2 Tablespoon Unsalted butter
- 1/2 Package Fresh spinach leaves
- 1/4 Cup Grated cheddar cheese
- 4 Mission Carb Balance Spinach Wraps
Slice the sausage links, put them in a cold nonstick pan, and cook until brown.
Whisk the eggs and mix in with the sausage.
Add the butter.
Chop the spinach.
Add the spinach and cheese.
Put two tablespoons onto a warm spinach wrap, roll it up, and it's ready to eat.
The sausage adds enough of a salty taste for me. However, you may want to add a pinch of salt if it’s not salty enough for you.
Options: Use precooked pork sausage links, turkey sausage links, or use 1/4 to 1/3 package of ground sausage.
Calories are estimated.
Cooking time is approximate.
If you use the precooked sausage, the cooking time for the recipe should be less than 15 minutes. Although, the precooked sausage adds extra calories.
Cost may vary depending on items you have on hand and current prices.
What Type of Tortilla is Best to Eat for a Healthy Breakfast?
Do you prefer corn or flour tortillas for breakfast wraps or burritos? The type of tortilla or wrap you choose can make a difference as far as nutrition facts. Look for low carb, low calorie, or low fat recipes for more healthy options.
If you’re like me, the carbs and sodium often found in tortillas can cause weight gain.
So let’s look at tortilla/wrap nutrition. First, look at the nutrition facts like grams of fiber, grams of protein, etc. Next, check out the ingredients and nutrition facts.
Corn tortillas made from 100% corn are whole grain, less fat and less calories than flour tortillas, and gluten-free. However, some packaged corn tortillas may be made from masa harina which is blended with wheat flour, thus not gluten-free.
White flour tortillas
Flour tortillas are made with refined wheat flour, water, shortening or lard, salt, baking soda, and more. Not gluten-free.
Whole wheat tortillas or whole wheat wraps
Whole wheat tortillas/wraps are made from whole grain wheat flour, not refined as much as white flour. They are lower in calories and fats and higher in fiber.
The flour wrap and flour tortilla are similar in that they are made from white flour. Most wraps have yeast, and tortillas are made with unleavened dough.
A lavash wrap is a flatbread, may be lower in fat, and can be high carb. But look for net carbs on the package.
Spinach wraps can actually have a lot of carbs. Some brands of spinach wraps may be keto-friendly.
Check the nutrition facts and ingredients on packages of tortillas, wraps, and flatbreads before purchasing. They may be low net carbs yet very high in sodium, for instance.
