Scrambled Egg & Tomato Breakfast Wrap

Recently I’ve given up bread. Not all bread, but leavened bread because I eat too much of it, and when I cut it out I tend to lose weight a bit quicker.

I’ve struggled a bit with breakfast as I love scrambled egg on toast. I’ve tried just having scrambled egg but it felt a bit too frugal and it needed something else.

Searching for inspiration I found some tortilla wraps in the cupboard and came up with this breakfast wrap. I doubt it’s a new, exciting breakfast concept; but I love it and coming in at under 450 calories for a pretty hearty, tasty breakfast you can’t go wrong. And yes, I’ll admit it doesn’t look stunning, but it does taste amazing.

Chop two tomatoes into bite size chunks, put into a microwaveable dish and season to taste. I used salt, pepper, dried chilli flakes and a pinch of sugar. Microwave for two minutes, stir and microwave for one more minute.

Scramble two eggs however you’d normally scramble eggs. I add a dab of butter, no milk, no seasoning in this because the tomatoes are seasoned enough.

Take your tortilla, spread with the cooked tomatoes, top with your cooked eggs, roll it into a wrap and eat.

I think it’d also be great with some wilted spinach or chopped parsley. Whatever you fancy.

Honestly this is my new favourite thing. If I can’t have it for breakfast then I’ll have it for lunch. It might look a bit bland but it’s so good. In fact I think I’ll go and make another one right now!

Death Row Dinners: What would my last meal be?

Last week I had the enviable pleasure of being taken to dinner at Simon Rogan’s new Manchester restaurant, Mr Coopers House & Garden. The meal was exquisite, one of the best I’ve ever had. Pre-baby I dined finely quite a lot, and this was very fine indeed.

It got me thinking about my favourite food, what I’d order off the “anything in the world you fancy for your last meal” menu. We’ve all played this game, what would you choose as your last meal on this earth? Would it be lobster and champagne or an amazing burger, or perhaps your favourite takeaway?

As for me, I’ve realised I’m a girl with simple tastes. After all simple tastes are often the best.

Death Row Dinners: What would my last meal be?

My favourite meal of all time is freshly picked tomatoes, cooked gently in a dab of butter with salt and pepper. I might sprinkle a few fresh thyme leaves over if I was feeling fancy. Pour the soft, wilting, sweet tomatoes onto thick, buttered wholemeal toast and eat.

I love that the toast gets soggy, I love the fresh tomatoey taste. If the tomatoes waft the smell of greenhouse across the plate, all the better. I love everything about tomatoes on toast. What’s not to love? It’s amazing!

Never tinned tomatoes on toast though. Never. Even the thought of that twists my stomach uncomfortably. It may have been something I used to eat a lot at university, mainly because it was quick, easy and cheap. But it’s not a dish I would enjoy, especially after the delights of fresh tomatoes on toast.

Failing that, my plan B last meal would be avocado and poached eggs on toast. Any man who gives me a poached egg immediately  and automatically wins my heart.

See, simple tastes. Though I still wouldn’t say no to a return to Mr Coopers!
