Egg wrap or omelette pinwheels

This way of serving eggs shows how quick and easy

it is to have fun family food. These eggs are a great option for breakfast, lunch or dinner or a healthy snack. 

Eggs are a great source of protein, always quick and simple to cook. I call them ‘eggie wraps or yellow wraps’. Sometimes if we serve a familiar food in a slightly different way it may help encourage fussy eaters to try the food. It is basically a very thin omelette made with 1 seasoned egg at a time, and when it cools a little but is still warm it can be rolled into a wrap shape. 


  Directions per wrap

  1. Heat a medium frying pan over medium heat. Grease with butter or oil. 
  2. In a small bowl, add one egg and seasoning (such as salt or pepper) and mix well with a fork*. 
  3. Pour into the pan and spread the egg to cover the entire pan. 
  4. Let it cook until the base is set or brown.
  5. Carefully flip with a large spatula and let it cook until set again.
  6. Remove from the pan and repeat with as many wraps as desired. 
  7. Let the egg wraps cool slightly and roll into each into a wrap.
  8. If If you wish to create pinwheels, cut the wrap into smaller pieces.
  9. Eat on its own or you can fill with sweet or savoury fillings of your choice such as  turkey, avocado, cheese, hummus or jam. They can be eaten hot including adding to a thermos flask for lunch or cold, just like a quiche. 
* You can also add items to the beaten egg itself, including finely chopped cooked veggies such as onion.
