Andrea: My Favorite Five-Minute Breakfast

Image placeholder title

My mornings are always a rush. No matter how much time I give myself to get ready, I always hit the snooze button at least a couple of times before ever-so-slowly making my way to the shower.

When I’m hurrying to get out the door, it’s so tempting to skip over breakfast and pick up a pre-made muffin or wrap along the way — a bad habit that doesn’t do any favors to my wallet or my waistline. So I needed to come up with a meal that would fill me up, provide a boost of protein and, most importantly, take no more than five minutes to make.

This Mexican-inspired egg and veggie wrap is always a winner for me. If I’m really behind, I’ll even wrap it in foil and take it to go.

  • 1 6-inch corn tortilla
  • ¼ tsp olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch each sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/8 avocado, cut into thin slices
  • 4 to 5 grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tsp crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 lime wedge


  1. In a medium nonstick skillet on medium, heat tortilla for about 1 minute on each side, just until warm (but not yet crisp). Remove from heat and transfer to a plate.
  2. To skillet, add oil. In a small bowl, whisk egg, salt and pepper; add to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. To tortilla, add egg, avocado and tomatoes. Top with cheese and a squeeze of lime juice.
