Thanks Elise; I’ve learned something. I’ve never eaten breakfast wraps or burritos, but I recently tried something new for breakfast that I really like: a scrambled egg sandwich.
Use butter (generously) and cook the eggs just enough. You want soft, nearly wet eggs.
A nice change.
I thought it was the folding method…if using the traditional 4-fold method it’s a burrito, but rolling something up like a jelly-roll (and usually having cold fillings) makes it a wrap.
When I was Operations Manager of L’Aroma Bakery and Deli we made breakfast burritos……sauteed fresh peppers and onions, fresh scrambled eggs, salsa, cheese and ham in a soft tortilla shell….$3.50. We couldn’t make them fast enough for the early morning crowd. Don’t know what the fast food places are making, I never ate one.
The exact defination of a burrito is a flour tortilla filled with savory ingredients, folded and wrapped up. So we were making breakfast buritos. If you make the same concoction with, for example, lavash bread, it’s a wrap. Technicality…..same basic thing.
Makes me think of someone taking yesterdays or the day before leftovers and wrapping them in a flour tortilla to hide whats in there till it’s too late… hmmm… Green Eggs and Ham comes to mind!
Never eaten a breakfast "wrap"—-are they the same as breakfast burritos?
Just like i thought….ya just shove it down your throat and dont give two cents [:D]
I am not pleased with the fillings in the Breakfast Wraps that fast food restaurants are selling these days. What the heck is THAT stuff anyway?
