Beef Breakfast Wraps

Happy Thursday! The recipe of the day is here – Beef Breakfast Wraps – so simple to make and so delicious to have!

Beef Breakfast Wraps

They’re one of those breakfast recipes that you can have them all day long – scrambled eggs, sweet red peppers, ripe avocado and beef. All that topped with lots of cheese and wrapped up. Believe me, you’re going to love these wraps.

I used shop bought cooked beef, which saved a lot of time. You can use whatever you’d like. You might have any leftovers or simply choose a small amount of cooked meat from your local shop.

I also added a tiny drop of sour cream to make the thing even juicier. I do love sour cream, I know it’s not the healthiest thing ever but the key is in moderation, I guess. ๐Ÿ™‚

For some reason,ย I’ve been making lots of wraps/burritos recently. Not only they’re our family favourite but they take a few minutes only (which make them mummy’s favourites too), if you’ve got all the ingredients prepped and cooked in advance. And the combinations you can try are numerous. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, fish, meat or simply vegetarian, there are so many delicious way to make these to your taste. So that’s a good reason, actually. ๐Ÿ™‚

I probably should try using some sweet and sour fillings. That would be nice, wouldn’t it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Like sweet and sour chicken with some veggies or rice. Nom, nom, nom..

The bottom line is, get your apron on and start cooking! ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, yes, I forgot to mention, there are some black olives too. I actually added the olives in the scramble eggs, I find the combination very yummy. ๐Ÿ™‚ But this is not necessary at all, so if for some reason you don’t fancy olives, just don’t add them. The eggs were cooked in advance so all I had to do was to make the wraps which took me 5 minutes. Seriously, I’m really good at wrapping these things. ๐Ÿ™‚

We actually couldn’t finish them all, which was quite surprising, just one of the wraps was left for lunch for the next day.

My kids actually unwrap everything and pick the bits and pieces they like. But as long as they have some food, this is fine by me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Needless to say, I had mine with lots of hot sauce. ๐Ÿ™‚ I simply can’t help it.

Broccoli & Chia Seeds Muffins

Happy Wednesday guys! Do you like broccoli? I know some of you might find these veggies not so tasty, like my kids do, but believe me this recipe will prove you wrong.

I’ve always preferred making savoury than sweet muffins, and I love trying adding veggies. Myย Spinach & Feta Cheese Cornmeal Muffins with Mustard Seedsย are one of my favourite but it was about time to try a new recipe.

So I made these ย savoury muffins last week and they were complete success. Topped with some feta cheese, these yummyย cups are very appetizing and simply delicious. How could you not add cheese, right?

The recipe requires only a few ย basic ingredients which I’m sure you can find in your kitchen cupboard. Well, apart from the broccoli, obviously. ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s more I used what was left of my chia seeds pack and it really worked well. Not to mention how good are chia seeds to you, apparently they’ve got numerous benefits. May be I should start incorporating them in my recipes more often then? ๐Ÿ™‚ The truth is, I’ve only tried a few recipes with chia seeds, I mean actually cooking with them. Otherwise I use them daily to top my salads, porridge, soups, lots of stuff really. I just like to add different seeds and nuts to my meals.

How to make your kids to eat these green veggies? The trick is to hide the broccoli in the muffin! Just joking! ๐Ÿ™‚ But, actually this is what I did – I put a piece of broccoli inside the muffin and just baked them in the oven. It couldn’t be simpler than this. Seriously, though, if you’ve got a tip how to make your kids to eat green veggies, let me know. I could definitely use some!

If you’re not a feta cheese person, you could use simple cheddar or even Parmesan. Mozzarella works too, so really, just use the cheese you love and you think would like with the muffins.

Here’s what you need for these pretty no fuss broccoli muffins.

Ingredients:

  • 250g plain flour
  • 3eggs
  • about 12 small broccoli pieces (I made 12 muffins)
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 100g butter, melted
  • 200g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2tbsp chia seeds
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1tsp salt

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ยฐC.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, chia seeds and baking powder. Gradually add the eggs, yogurt and butter. Mix well.
  3. Grease a muffin tray and pour halfway in from the mixture. Add the broccoli and cover with the mixture. Crumble some feta cheese on top.
  4. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or until ready.

Enjoy!

Tip: Why not try adding some cheddar and Parmesan cheese for a cheesier version of these muffins? I like the sound of three cheese and chia seeds broccoli muffins! ๐Ÿ™‚
