Avocado and Tomato Breakfast Wrapper

Hey, who doesn't love eggs for breakfast? And when you mix in the avocado, you get an incredibly healthy snack--especially if you leave the cheese out! A small amount of cheese can add to the flavor, but because of all the veggies too much cheese is possible. If you want a lot of cheese for breakfast--heck, make a cheese omlette!

  • 1/4 avocado, diced
  • 1/4 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • black pepper, to taste
  • parsley, to taste
  • paprika, to taste
  • 2 eggs (or 4 egg whites)
  • 1 tortilla, warmed
  • cheddar cheese, to taste, optional


Sautee onions and mushrooms in skillet with a dash of sunflower oil (or butter if you like). Add the eggs and vigorously mix for about 10 seconds then let it sit in the pan to cook. Add the spices and fold the eggs so they cook light and fluffy. Cook the eggs until they are "almost done" because there will be "carry-over heat" as the eggs continue to slightly cook after they have been taken up.

Drop the eggs, avocado, and cheese in a tortilla. Wrap and serve.
