I tend to get in lunch ruts so it is really nice to mix things up a bit. This egg wrap seems to be something I just keep coming back to. Especially if I didn’t have eggs for breakfast. I love eggs and could probably eat them three times a day if I didn’t have to worry about things like cholesterol.

This wrap is SO good, you guys! I love the combination of scrambled eggs with the salty ham, a little cheese (gotta have cheese!) and then topped with crispy greens with fresh herbs.

So much flavor already in this wrap! What really takes it over the top is a thin layer of chive and onion cream cheese which gets kind of melty from the heat of the scrambled eggs.

I could eat this ham and egg wrap every day!

As with all my recipes, it would be so easy to customize this wrap based on what you have in the house or what you’re in the mood for any given day.

I pretty much always have a package of Flatout flatbread wraps in my house because I love them (and they are a Michigan company!). You could also use soft wheat tortillas or other wraps. A spinach wrap would be cool. 

These ham and egg wraps with herbs would be great vegetarian — just leave the ham out! Or if you don’t have the greens with herbs mixed in, you can easily add whatever herbs you love or have in your fridge. I used provolone cheese but any type of cheese would be fantastic!

I wouldn’t omit the cream cheese spread, though…and please make it the chive and onion. It takes this egg wrap to magical places.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs

  • one slice cheese (use your favorite)
  • 1-2 big handfuls of mixed greens with herbs

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and pepper. In a small frying pan over medium heat, scramble eggs to your liking (I like them to be soft when I’m done scrambling them).
  2. Meanwhile, spread cream cheese all over wrap. Near one end, lay out ham slices. On top of them, layer the cheese slice. When eggs are scrambled, add eggs on top of cheese and top with mixed greens. Roll up and enjoy!
