Simple weekend breakfast that’s healthy, easy, and uses less than 10 ingredients! Breakfast Egg wrap with potatoes is the perfect dish for anyone looking for a easy yet delicious breakfast!
Happy 2017 everyone! Hope everyone had a great New Year’s and is looking forward to the year ahead with a fresh start! What are your resolutions (if you made any)?! I didn’t make any resolutions this year but I do have BIG goals set for 2017!
I’m excited to take on the year and strive for the things I want! 🙂 Eyes on the prize, right??
Anywayyyyy, for a long time I’ve been wanting to redo our famous Breakfast Egg Wrap and Potatoes but just haven’t had the time. Having Monday off gave us the extra hours needed to update pictures and atlas bring you a delicious and addicting breakfast!
Ty and I make this breakfast almost every weekend! We ARE seriously addicted. It’s a super easy recipe that doesn’t require much effort or hassle!
Since the original post several months ago we have upgraded to making breakfast potatoes with yams (or sweet potatoes some might say). I prefer to use yams rather than Russet potatoes as they are packed with nutrients and fiber! Win win, right?
If you are in a time crunch, I would advise just making the wrap and leaving the potatoes out. They take about 30 minutes at least. BUT, are so worth it!
Start by cutting your yam (or potato of choice) into small cubes. You should cut your onion, green pepper, and any other topping at this stage as well.
Heat a large skillet with oil, once warmed add your potatoes. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are a little soft and tender. Stirring frequently. While potatoes are cooking, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Heat up another skillet to sauté your peppers and onions. Let sauté about 10 minutes.
After removing potatoes from stove, put in oven safe dish and bake until egg wrap is completed. Usually about 10 minutes. We like to add some of the sautéed peppers and onions to the potatoes before they go into the oven. We don’t do this every time but it adds a nice touch to the yams.
Start your scrambled eggs. Once done, add eggs, sautéed onions and peppers, and any other toppings to the middle of a tortilla wrap.
Sprinkle with desired amount of cheese. Fold in the ends and wrap the side pieces together to create a wrap. Place on a George Foreman grill for about 5 minutes.
If you don’t have a George Foreman, a panini press or pan (skillet) with hamburger press will work just as well!
Great combination of sweet onions with tender breakfast potatoes! I like to dip my potatoes with ketchup but Ty usually likes them sprinkled with salt and pepper!
Egg Wrap Recipe is below! Let me know your thoughts in comments!
- 4 eggs
- half green pepper diced
- quarter onion diced
- 3 tbls extra virgin olive oil (1 tbls for peppers and 2 tbls for potatoes)
- 1 tbls milk
- fat free cheddar cheese (or your cheese preference)
- 1 yam potato - medium size
- Cut the potatoes into small cubes. Dice up the green pepper and onion.
- In two separate pans, heat up the olive oil over medium high heat for each (1 tbls for the peppers and 2 tbls for the potato pan). Add the potatoes to one pan. Add the green pepper and onion to the second pan and sauté.
- Cover the potatoes with lid. Be sure to stir occasionally. Cook a total of 20 minutes or until soft and tender. Bake at 350 for an additional 10 minutes.
- While peppers sauté, crack 4 eggs in bowl and add milk. Whisk.
- Stir green pepper and onion mixture frequently. After about 10 minutes, take the green pepper and onion off the stove and put in a small bowl (just storing somewhere until we are ready to make the wrap)
- Pour eggs into skillet (it will already be greased from pepper and onion mixture), stirring frequently- making scrambled eggs.
- Add eggs, green pepper, and onion to the middle of both wraps. Sprinkle your desired amount of cheese on top. Wrap into burritos - fold in the ends and roll the tortilla.
- Put onto George Forman grill. Let grill for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown (depends if the grill was already on and warmed up).
- Remove potatoes from oven and add desired amount of salt and pepper!
- Once the egg wrap is finished grilling - add to plate with potatoes. Enjoy!
If you decide to use Russet potatoes/white potatoes I highly advise adding Old Bay! 🙂

It’s Saturday morning and you’re looking for a delicious but easy weekend breakfast. Well, look no more as I have something that is nothing short of perfection. How about cheesy eggs, bell peppers, and onion all wrapped and grilled to give it that crispy outer shell?!?
That’s right, this egg wrap is one of my all-time favorite weekend breakfasts! I would make it daily if I had more time during the week. . Though maybe I would get tired of it … probably not. This breakfast was first made for me one morning by my bf and ever since that first bite the breakfast wrap has continued to improve and advance. We’ve added red peppers, green peppers, onion, avocado, jalapeños, bacon, ham, etc. However, in this recipe I am keeping it simple with our usual red peppers and onions but feel free to add in any other ingredient that fits your fancy. We like to pair this magnificent egg creation with our breakfast potatoes which gives it the type of feel that you are at your very own brunch spot – which you are… your kitchen.
After my eyes were opened to this delicious breakfast wrap I knew it would forever be a staple in our relationship. I do highly suggest adding avocado to the wrap as it gives it that extra little bonus and definitely enhances the flavor. We use fat free cheddar cheese but pepper jack is always a good option if you are looking to add a little spicyness.
If you don’t have enough time, then I would suggest just making the breakfast wrap without the potatoes. The wrap itself doesn’t take more then 10 minutes! But, be sure you make the breakfast potatoes at least once as they are a great side when cooked perfectly – tender, crisp, and sprinkled with old bay!
Our favorite dipping sauce for the wrap: Hers – Trader Joe’s Sriracha (obsessed!) His – ketchup mixed with Frank’s Buffalo Sauce
As you can see we do not use anything fancy or pages full of ingredient’s.. it may seem very simple and guess what? It is! Don’t feel like you need to add every spice from your cabinet to recreate a restaurant brunch at home. It’s as simple and easy as a few key ingredients and you are on your way to a spectacular homemade brunch date! 🙂 The fanciest part about this recipe is probably that you use a Geroge Foreman grill. Oh and you should probably add a couple mimosas to really set the brunching ambiance!
Don’t have a George Foreman? Get creative! You could use a panini press, toaster oven, or place the wraps in the oven for about 5-8 minutes at 350 🙂
