The thin crepe-like egg wrap makes the wrap light, and the feta cheese adds a fantastic salty, acidic flavor. Best of all, this recipe only takes about 10 minutes to make! If you’re looking for something new and exciting to add to your breakfast rotation, this egg wrap is definitely worth trying!
This is breakfast egg wrap recipe is inspired by a Lebanese-style omelette called “ejjeh” which is a mix of eggs, flour, spices, and herbs that is then formed into patties and fried. Yes – I said flour. That is not a typo! While the concept of adding flour to breakfast eggs may seem odd to many outside of the Middle East, it’s a secret ingredient that creates a unique egg wrap that you won’t soon forget. Adding flour to an omelette, egg wrap, or even eggs, in general, gives it more structure and substance. Trust me, just try it!

Why you’ll love this egg wrap sandwich
- Thin crepe-like protein-packed exterior. Eggs are a great source of protein, and when made into a thin crepe-like egg wrap, they make the perfect vessel.
- Low-carb. If you’re trying to watch your carb intake using an egg to make, a wrap is the way to go. Yes, even with the addition of the flour, (which only adds 2g of carbs), this is still a low-carb breakfast wrap. When you use a tortilla, you’re looking at 30+g of carbs for just one tortilla, depending on the brand and type. Keep in mind this recipe has about 17g of carbs in total, making it low-carb but not Keto.
- Loaded with flavor. The feta cheese adds a fantastic salty, acidic flavor, while the peppery arugula brings a touch of heat to the wrap. Then you’ve got creamy, nutrient-rich avocado and bright tomatoes! It’s a light but filling breakfast that will keep you full without weighing you down afterward.
- Quick & easy to make. This recipe only takes about 10 minutes to make, and the egg wrap can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge, ready for assembly in the am!
Ingredients to make a breakfast egg wrap
- Eggs: The eggs make up the vessel of your wrap. You want to use at least 2. That being said, you can add in additional eggs or even opt to use the egg whites only (if you go egg white only, you’ll need at least 3 eggs). Keep in mind the more eggs you add, the thicker the wrap will be, and the egg flavor becomes more prominent.
- Flour: You only need one teaspoon, and it’s optional. But if you whisk the flour with the beaten egg mixture, it gives it a bit more substance. And it also changes the consistency to mimic a (bright and yellow!) tortilla.
- Vegetables (and meat): This is the fun part where you can add whatever ingredients you’d like inside the egg wrap. I recommend using some type of leafy greens like arugula, spinach, or kale. Then you can add tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, zucchini, or even cooked potatoes. You can also add turkey bacon or breakfast sausage, or cold cuts like turkey in it.
- Spread/Sauce: To keep this wrap on the healthy side, I mash avocado and spread it on the inside of the egg wrap. You’ll need to use something to make sure that the vegetables stick to the eggs. You can also add some mayonnaise, cream cheese, or plain yogurt.
- Cheese: For a Mediterranean vibe, I use crumbled feta cheese, but any type of cheese works, like mozzarella, fontina, Havarti, or gouda.
How to make an egg wrap
- In a medium bowl, place the eggs, water, flour, salt, and pepper.
- Whisk until well combined, and the flour is completely dissolved.
- Heat the olive oil in a nonstick frying pan. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and spread it out evenly. Cook for about until the egg mixture is completely set, breaking up any air bubbles that form.
- Gently slide a spatula under the edges of the egg mixture to flip. Slide the cooked egg wrap onto a plate to allow it to cool slightly.
Tips for making an egg wrap sandwich
- Be mindful of thickness. If you prefer a thinner crepe-like egg wrap, you’ll need to use at least a 10in frying pan, ideally a 12in frying pan and only two eggs. For a thicker wrap, I’d still stick with a 10in frying pan, so you have room for the filling, and you can use up to 4 eggs.
- Make your egg vessel ahead of time. You can make the exterior, your egg wrap vessel, ahead of time – up to two days and store it in the refrigerator. This way, you just have to assemble it in the morning for a quick and easy breakfast!
- Let the egg cool for a few minutes before assembly. If you want your egg wrap sandwich to hold together, let it cool off a bit before rolling it up. Otherwise, if you try to roll it up in a hurry, the egg may split, and your wrap may not hold together.
- Don’t overfill the wrap. If you overfill the wrap, it will be difficult to roll up and more likely to break. It may take a few times to get the filling-to-wrap ratio, but once you do, you’ll be throwing egg wraps together like a pro!
Popular substitutions & additions
- Make it savory. My mom makes a similar version of this egg wrap inspired by Lebanese “ejjeh”. She adds mashed potatoes that have been mixed with garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to the inside of the wrap. Who can argue with potatoes and eggs?
- Use a low-carb tortilla. If you’re not on a strict Keto diet, you can use a low-carb tortilla in place of the egg vessel. Just scramble your eggs and add them in with the filling for a breakfast burrito!
- Get creative with the filling. Think of an egg wrap as a deconstructed omelette. You can add just about any type of filling you’d like – mushrooms, pesto, sautéed spinach…the list goes on!
- Add some heat. If you’re looking for an extra kick to your egg wrap, add some homemade harissa or a dash of hot sauce or chili flakes before folding it up. The mild spiciness really takes this dish to the next level!
How to store & reheat an egg wrap
Depending on what filling you use inside your wrap determines if it can or can not be stored put together. For example, if you do a simple turkey sausage and cheese egg wrap, you can roll it and store it in the fridge until you’re ready to reheat. If you have fresh, watery veggies, like tomatoes, or air-sensitive ingredients, like avocado, you won’t want to store the egg wrap filled.
If you can avoid the microwave when reheating eggs, I would. Eggs tend to get rubbery when microwaved. If you have a toaster oven, you can throw the egg wrap in to reheat on 300 for a few minutes or use a pan on medium-low heat until the chill has just worn off.
How long will an egg wrap last in the fridge?
I recommend eating your egg wrap within two days of making it. Any longer, and you may notice a change in texture, taste, or smell.
Can I freeze the egg wrap?
You can, but the egg may become rubbery and the vegetables inside a bit soggy. If you’re going to freeze your egg wrap, I’d do it without the filling. Make sure that you let your eggs come to room temperature to avoid excess moisture when freezing.
Frequently asked questions
Nope! You do not have to use the flour inside your egg mixture. Though, I’d love for you to try it at least once!
Yes! If you don’t flip your egg wrap, one side will cook much faster than the other. So be sure to flip it halfway through! To keep your egg from tearing, use a thin spatula and be sure to slide it under the entire egg.
You can, but I would keep it simple with ingredients that are flat, like deli turkey, shredded cheese, etc. You don’t want big chunks in your wrap that may cause more air bubbles and tearing.
This egg wrap is a delicious, nutritious, and super satisfying meal. With just a few ingredients, you can make this breakfast creation in no time. So keep it in your arsenal of go-to breakfast meals and impress your family. Pair it with a cup of coffee or freshly-squeezed orange juice for a balanced and nutritious meal. Enjoy!
