Thanks so much to NestFresh Eggs for sponsoring my TV debut!
These little Homemade Egg and Sausage wraps were featured on KOB channel 4 on the morning show. They are super easy, tasty and make a perfect healthy on-the-go meal so you can get your morning started off right! Don’t skip the most important meal of the day, just get smart about it and make it the night before so it’s ready to go.
The most important component of this recipe is the eggs. Eggs are a great source of protein which helps you feel full longer. Be sure the next time you have eggs on your grocery list, that you try NestFresh Eggs, the first Non-GMO certified eggs that are 100% cage free. They have a higher nutrient content and less cholesterol and saturated fat than a commodity egg. Happy hens lay healthier eggs! It’s really true!
I had a great time over at the studio! Everyone was super friendly and helpful at calming my nerves. I was able to leave most of the food I had prepared, and there were lots of hungry hosts and producers who were more than ready to eat it!
These wraps only take about 30 minutes to make from start to pulling out of the oven done. Let them cool and wrap them in foil and pop ’em in the freezer. Then the next morning you can throw one in the microwave (remove the foil wrapping first!) and you have a healthy ‘hot pocket’ hand held breakfast perfect for those on-the-go days! They’re not too heavy and have lots of protein that’s perfect for breakfast.
These breakfast wraps are made with store bought whole wheat pizza dough so they’re super easy to make and better for you. Remember, protein and whole grains will go a long way to helping you stay full for hours.
We love making these breakfast wraps, they are just so easy! Be sure to make them with NestFresh eggs. You can find them in Deca commissaries on military bases, Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage and Whole Foods. Make the commitment to eating a better breakfast for Better Breakfast Month!Print
