Recipe: Easy Breakfast Lettuce Wraps

Hello, Fit Fam!

You may or may not realize that I used to have a recipe blog with one of my sisters. It kind of fizzled out, as life got in the way.

So, when Jill posted that the topic for this week's Fit Dish link-up was healthy recipes, I knew it was a great time excuse to resurrect one of the recipes I'd posted over there.

As I was surfing through my archives, this breakfast recipe looked so good!

Easy Breakfast Lettuce Wraps
Scrambled eggs smothered with chopped tomatoes and shredded cheese in lettuce leave. A deliciously healthy way to get some protein into your diet. So simple and easy!
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Total time: 10 minutes

Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients
  • 2 leaves butter lettuce (or any other leaf lettuce)
  • 2 slices tomatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • shredded cheese
  • Frank's Red Hot (optional)

Directions
  1. Rinse and dry lettuce leaves. Chop tomato slices.
  2. Scramble eggs over medium heat, season with salt and pepper.
  3. Divide scrambled eggs evenly over lettuce leaves. Top with shredded cheese and chopped tomatoes. Shake on Frank's Red Hot, if desired.
I can't wait to get some butter lettuce to eat this again! And it would be super easy to dress this up a little by adding more veggies - onions, peppers, etc. Sky's kinda the limit. :)

    1. When it comes to breakfast, the easier the better, if you ask me! Well, that's probably true when it comes to anything in the kitchen.
