A tasty bacon and egg wrap has plenty of protein and fat to get you through the morning. The cheese is melty and gooey, the eggs are savory and fluffy and the bacon offers a delicious, high-protein kick. Get your morning off to a great start with a high-protein and whole-grain breakfast on the go!
This protein-packed breakfast combines bacon, cheese, and eggs for a tasty, high-energy meal. It’s a great way to enjoy a tasty breakfast on the road or even at the office. It’s wonderful for meal prep and travels well.
What Are Breakfast Wraps?
Simply put, they are breakfast wrapped up in a tortilla. They are kinda like a breakfast burrito, but more accurately described as an egg breakfast wrap. But you won’t be using any scrambled eggs. Typically, they are made of eggs, cheese, and some type of breakfast meat. Chances are you’ve had one before, but making them at home is far healthier and easy to boot! (Not to mention, cheaper!)
Why Make Breakfast Wraps?
Because you can easily prep them ahead of time, freeze them and then pop them in the microwave just before you head out the door in the morning. They are easy to eat on the road, and kids love them too!
Are Breakfast Wraps Healthy?
It depends on what you put in them! Many are highly processed and filled with unwanted ingredients. Especially the pre-made ones. But this homemade version uses healthy ingredients that equal a healthy breakfast!
What Type Of Cheese Is Best In A Bacon And Egg Wrap?
In most cases, either cheddar cheese or mozzarella are going to be your best choices, depending on your preferences. I’d like to say American cheese, but that mostly comes as a very highly processed, “almost-not-real-food” type of cheese. So it’s probably best to skip it. Besides, real cheese adds so much more flavor!
And yes, there are a few varieties on the market that are the real stuff. If you can find it, it’s a great option as well.
Bacon And Egg Wrap Recipe Additions
If you want to fill out your wrap a bit more or try to work some veggies in, here are some ideas.
- Bell peppers
- Onions – Especially red onions. Green onions are great too.
- Other types of meat (most people enjoy ham, though it’s not really a “clean” meat)
- Peas and carrots
- Sweet potatoes
For all of these suggestions, I recommend sautéing them separately in a skillet, letting them cool, and then stirring them into the egg mixture so that they cook into the egg. This way, they won’t fall out of your wrap when you are in a hurry.
- Sour cream
- Sauces or condiments such as ketchup mustard or mayo
About The Bacon
There are plenty of people who don’t believe that pork is a clean eating or healthy option. For those of you who feel that way, turkey bacon is a great option. Applegate offers delicious turkey bacon that has clean ingredients (I eat it often!) And no, I’m not paid to promote them. Just sharing what I use in my own kitchen.
But if you are a devotee of pork bacon, Wellshire Farms offers fabulous bacon that also has clean ingredients. I often find this brand at Whole Foods but have found it in other stores as well. (Same with the Applegate brand). Again, I’m not paid to promote them. Just sharing brands that I have tried in the past and enjoyed. Your other options are a local butcher or farmer.

Bacon And Egg Wrap Ingredient Checklist
1 large egg
1 tbsp. milk – This can be dairy or non-dairy milk. I used unsweetened almond milk.
1 pinch salt – You can measure or just grab a pinch with your fingers. A pinch is an actual measurement, but many folks don’t have that particular measuring spoon.
1 pinch ground black pepper – You can measure or just grab a pinch with your fingers.
2 tbsp. grated cheddar cheese – Or whatever grated cheese you prefer with eggs and bacon.
3 strips bacon – See notes on bacon above. This can be soft or crispy bacon.
1 whole wheat flour tortilla – Or whatever tortilla or wrap you need to use.
Oil – for cooking. Coconut oil, olive oil, or avocado oil are good choices.
How To Make A Bacon And Egg Wrap
Crack your egg into a mixing bowl and add the milk, salt, and pepper.
Whisk well with a whisk or fork to combine.
Slowly, a little at a time, pour the egg mixture onto a hot pan. A Non-stick skillet works best, but any pan will do with oil. Use a spatula to pull in the edges as the egg moves to expand in the pan. The idea is to keep it from spreading or becoming larger than your tortilla. Keep it smaller than your tortilla, even if you have to fold it in a bit around the edges during cooking. Do this over medium-high heat.
Cook fully on one side, then flip.
Add the shredded cheese, and allow the egg pancake to cook long enough to melt the cheese almost entirely. (A little of the melting process will continue after it’s off the pan. But get it close to fully melted).
Transfer the egg pancake to your tortilla or wrap.
Nestle the bacon into the melty cheese.
Roll up the wrap as tightly as you can get it.
Cut in half.
Freezing Bacon And Egg Wraps
If you want to make a bunch of these and freeze them, you’ll want to either wrap each one in parchment paper and store them all together in a freezer-safe container, or you’ll want to put each one in its own zipper-top freezer bags.
These will freeze for up to 2 months if packed well.
How To Reheat A Bacon And Egg Wrap
- From cold – Simply microwave for 30 seconds on high.
- From frozen – You can thaw first in the fridge and then reheat, or you can microwave for approximately 1 minute.
