Tuscan Sunrise Breakfast Wraps

http://menumusings.blogspot.com/
On this particular beautiful spring morning, I found myself alone in the house.  Believe me when I tell you how rare that is!!  Oh to just lounge around for a while in my pj's and have no one to attend to is just delicious every now and then!  But since I had no little people to cook for, the cupboards were, well, bare!  This is one of those times when you search through the fridge to see what you can make out of "stuff."  Oh come on... you know exactly what I mean.  

This amazing breakfast wrap was the result.  Now don't get me wrong, those breakfast wraps that you grab through the fast food drive-through windows can fill you up, but they are also pretty basic and boring.  How about waking up your breakfast wrap with the piquant flavors of the Italian countryside?  I assure you that you probably will not find sun dried tomatoes, marinated artichoke hearts, and smoky ham coming out of a fast food bag!  I will be the first to admit, there is nothing particularly groundbreaking about a breakfast wrap.  But the addition of the marinated artichokes and sun dried tomatoes in this one really do make it something worth trying!

So here we go!  Now feel free to substitute seasonings and cheeses of your choice.  And don't worry about it if you are one of those who can't make an omlet look "right."  Wraps are so forgiving because you hide everything inside!

Ingredients:  (enough for 2 large wraps)
  • 3 large eggs
  • a splash of milk
  • salt, black pepper, dried basil
  • Italian seasoning 
  • smoky deli ham
  • marinated artichoke hearts, diced small
  • sun dried tomatoes packed in oil, cut small
  • good melting cheese - fontina, gruyere, mozzarella, You choose!
  • medium sized flour tortillas 


Step-by-Step:
Chop all the accompanying ingredients (ham, artichokes, tomatoes) and grate some cheese of your choice.   I had some gruyere already grated in the fridge, so I used that.  But other cheeses would work just as well.

Add in a splash of milk to the eggs (sorry, I don't really measure).  Add salt, pepper, dried basil, Italian seasoning.  Briskly beat the eggs with a fork or whisk.

whisk to combine
Over medium low heat, allow eggs to cook slowly in a nonstick pan. 
Once large soft curds are formed, add in the ham, artichokes, and tomatoes.  When eggs are just set and not "wet"any more, turn off the heat so the eggs won't brown on the bottom.  No one likes brown eggs!!!

Heat a flour tortilla over the stove or in the microwave.   When I do them over the fire like this, I love the way they start to blister and have the slightest bit of brown to them.  Plus - you don't want to put your lovely hot eggs into a cold wrapper!

Add the eggs.  Top with a good melting cheese.  
Close up the wrap and garnish as you'd like - extra cheese, Italian Seasoning, chives, oregano, etc.   If you are making a few of these, you can heat them up a bit more in the microwave to get everything hot and melted right before serving them.
Now you can go grab a cup of steaming hot coffee, or fresh orange juice and go watch the world come alive.
