Breakfast wrap

I'm a big fan of breakfast wraps - scrambled eggs, cheese, turkey bacon all in a tortilla. Yummy. Since I'm not a huge fan of eggs by themselves, this makes them easier to eat. Today I decided to jazz it up a bit; we're trying to eat healthier, so I wanted to add some healthy 'bulk' to my wrap. Here's what I came up with...


1/2 cup sweet potato, shredded
1/2 cup spinach leaves, torn into bite-size pieces
3 eggs
1-2 Tbsp shredded cheese
4 slices turkey bacon, cooked
2 whole wheat tortillas
Salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder


Lightly spray a non-stick skillet with Pam spray. Over medium heat, saute sweet potato until soft. Add spinach and continue to saute until spinach wilts. Lightly season with onion powder and garlic powder. (If you're so inclined, you could saute some chopped onions with the sweet potato instead of the powder.)

In a small bowl, beat the eggs with a little salt and pepper. Pour into skillet. Scramble over medium heat. Just before eggs are done, sprinkle with cheese.

Put two strips of bacon in center of tortilla and top with half of the eggs. Roll up and enjoy!! (Serves two)

NOTE: Depending on the brands of tortilla and bacon, this breakfast will be between 400-500 calories per wrap. And very filling!
