French Toast Breakfast Wraps


I've been on a big losing streak when it comes to new recipes lately. So much so that my husband has started pouring himself cereal even before I get dinner on the table. Given the overly chewy, incredibly bland veggie pasta bake I served a few days ago, I don't blame him one bit.

That's why, when he saw me editing pictures of these breakfast wraps this weekend, he acted like I had betrayed him. "What are those? Seriously, why didn't you give those to me?" he asked, acting like we were marooned on a desert island and I had been holding out on sharing some candy I had stashed in my pocket. 


Well folks, I didn't share because I ate his serving as well as mine. Then I cleaned up the kitchen to hide the evidence before he woke up. Of course, this doesn't work so well if you have photographic proof of the great breakfast you had that you didn't share with your spouse. I just told him it was my fee for getting up with the baby.


Fortunately for all involved, I'll be making these wraps again in the near future. They're a fun twist on regular breakfast food. They're like a cross between a crepe and french toast. You dip tortillas in a french toast batter, cook them in a skillet, then fill them with a yogurt/berry/granola mixture. You'd think for someone who makes french toast out of angel food cake that I'd have french-toasted pretty much everything by now, but trying it with tortillas was new to me. The cinnamon and nutmeg in the batter give it a great flavor that I loved with the fruit and yogurt. It was a nice, lighter change from other traditional breakfast foods, and easy to make. 


I'm calling the recipe l
osing streak officially over.

This is a great idea, Nicole! I would have never thought to use tortillas for French toast, but it looks terrific! I laughed reading your story about cleaning up the evidence....I've done that before too. I will definitely have to try this!

We had one of those weeks a few months ago. It was brutal, and I know my husband was holding his breath every time when dinner was served. Luckily we broke out, and I hope you have now too :) I never would have thought to do this with tortillas, such a fun idea!
