About once a week I receive a new product in the mail for me to try from companies that want me to mention them on this site.
Well, I do appreciate the freebies, but some of the items are really odd and taste really bad, and I never know how to handle the situation gracefully. Should I say "this was really terrible, tastes like wood"? Instead, I just throw it away and when I get the emails asking if I liked it, I usually just ignore them.
Last week I received a case (yes, a case) of Tumaro's NY Deli Style Wraps to try.
I am always skeptical about wraps, since they usually taste like glue and just look prettier than they taste when you see pre-wrapped sandwiches at gourmet markets.
But these had me curious.
12 grams of fiber? 80 calories a wrap? 9 grams of protein? All natural? So far, so good. I also liked that they came in flavors. Sourdough, pumpernickel, rye, "everything" and black pepper.
I decided to try breakfast burritos for my first time.
It's basically a Mexican style omelet wrapped up in a tortilla, but this time I used the black pepper wrap instead of a bland tortilla and we LOVED them! (and I am not getting paid to say that).
My taste testers agreed, these were fantastic (neighbor's kids and husband).
Breakfast Burritos: (makes 4 halves)
2 Tumaro's any flavor NY Deli Style Wrap
4 eggs, whisked
1/2 red bell pepper, minced
1/4 red onion, minced
1/3 cup of low-fat cheddar or Mexican Jack cheese, shredded
salt & pepper
Make your omelet how you normally would. I swirl some olive oil in a nonstick pan and add the minced onions and peppers for a minute. Then I dump the eggs on top. Sprinkle w/ salt & pepper.
On medium heat, keep moving the cooked sides towards the middle of the omelet (so the omelet cooks evenly), and add the shredded cheese. When it starts to firm up, I quickly fold the sides together to create an omelet.
Lay out your wraps and place half the eggs down the center of each wrap.
Spoon some salsa and an avocado slice over the top and fold together to create a package.
Slice in half and serve.
