High Protein Breakfast Crunch Wrap
- 1 standard-size low carb tortilla e.g., Carb Balance
- 1 small taco-sized low carb tortilla e.g., Mission Zero Carb
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons cottage cheese
- 1-2 tablespoons shredded cheese a blend of cheddar, mozzarella, and Monterey Jack works great
- 1 breakfast sausage patty Trader Joe’s Chicken Breakfast Sausage is an excellent choice
- 1-2 teaspoons of your favorite chili crisp optional but adds a spicy kick
Scramble the Eggs and Cottage Cheese:
- Begin by quickly scrambling two eggs and mixing in two tablespoons of cottage cheese. This combination adds creaminess and a protein boost to your wrap.
Add a Kick of Flavor:
- Elevate the flavor by stirring in a couple of teaspoons of your preferred chili crisp. We love Momofuku’s chili crisp for its perfect balance of heat and flavor.
Assemble the Wrap:
- Lay out one standard-size low carb tortilla on your workspace.
- Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded cheese evenly over the tortilla.
- Carefully spoon the scrambled egg mixture onto the center of the tortilla, creating a tasty protein-packed base.
- Top the eggs with a breakfast sausage patty of your choice (we recommend Trader Joe’s Chicken Breakfast Sausage).
- If you like it extra spicy, add another dash of chili crisp on top.
- Finally, place a small taco-sized low carb tortilla on the very top to complete the wrap.
Fold and Cook:
- Gently fold up the ends of the larger tortilla to cover the smaller one, creating a neatly wrapped package.
- Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and place the wrap seam-side down.
- Cook for a few minutes on each side until it’s beautifully golden brown and crispy.
Serve and Enjoy:
- Once your Breakfast Crunch Wrap is perfectly crispy and the cheese is melty, remove it from the skillet.
- Cut it in half or leave it whole, depending on your preference.
- Serve it up and savor the delicious combination of textures and flavors in every bite.
