How To Make An Egg Wrap
First, let’s answer the question you’re probably thinking: Isn’t an egg wrap just an omelette?
Well, technically, yes, the ingredients and cooking methods are the same.
But instead of mixing any extra ingredients into the egg mixture and cooking it all together as you would with an omelette, the egg wrap acts more like a substitute for a tortilla wrap with the extra ingredients added once the egg has cooled down.
What You Need:
- 4 eggs (1 egg per wrap, use as many as you need to make)
- Olive oil (or oil of your choice)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Frying pan
I like to beat one egg at a time in a small jug before adding each one to the pan to fry. But you can beat as many eggs as you need all at once if you prefer.
You can optionally add a little salt and pepper to season or a pinch of mixed dried herbs or dried chilli flakes to the egg mixture.
Heat up a little oil in the pan before adding one beaten egg. Cook for 30 to 60 seconds on each side, using a spatula to flip it over halfway through.
Transfer to a plate and leave to cool before adding your fillings.
