Simply Healthy Family: Focaccia Breakfast Rollups

Focaccia Breakfast Rollups


These focaccia wraps were a very nice change from our usual breakfast. Usually we have something pretty simple, a.k.a,. fast for breakfast around here. When I do make something heartier on the weekends it's usually breakfast burritos or something of the like. I actually got this idea from a Starbuck's while Jim and I were out of town a while ago. They had a very simple, egg white, cheese ( i forget which kind) and spinach focaccia roll up. Of course these are much heartier, full of more veggies and of course way less expensive!


I was very happy with the result!
 You can't tell by looking at them, but the focaccia wraps were a very yummy change from tortillas




Ingredients:  (spinach or any of your fav veggies will work!)
Eggs, herbed feta, Leeks, mushrooms, Canadian bacon, asparagus, focaccia wraps,
 EVOO, Kosher salt, fresh ground pepper.





Putting it all together:

In a large non-stick skillet ( not teflon) heat 1 tablespoon EVOO over med-high heat.
Chop the white parts of the leeks and rinse very well in a collander.
 (leeks are roots and hide dirt in their layers)
Cut the ends off the asparagus and discard (about the bottom 1/4). Chop the remaining tops into thirds.
Add chopped bacon and asparagus to saute pan. Cook about 3 minutes.
 Add chopped leeks and chopped mushrooms. Cook 1-2 minutes more.
Meanwhile, whisk desired amount of eggs in a small bowl with 1 tabelspoon water and the feta.
Add eggs to saute pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Using a rubber spatula, slide eggs towards center of pan, working your way around.
 Transfer ingredients to a bowl.
Wipe pan clean with a paper towel. Return to heat. Lower to medium heat and add 1 tabelspoon EVOO.
* I warm my focaccia in microwave for about 10 seconds to make them more pliable.
Fill  wraps with cooked ingredients.
Fold bottom of foccacia up and then sides, making an envelope with an open top.
Gently transfer to pan, folded side down. Cook about 1-2 minutes just to seal the wrap.

* Serve with fresh fruit!

**(always eat something RAW and a MUFA before/with your meals)



I just wanted to show you the folded/sealed side, not pretty I know ;-)
