Ham, Cheese & Egg Breakfast Roll Ups

Friday 6 April 2018

This recipe I am showing you today is a very simple one that you can make for one, or you can make for many, depending on what your needs are.  You CAN only cook one at a time however, but once you get started, it moves very quickly along.

Its basically a very thin, crepe-like omelette, which is folded around a quantity of spring onions, cheese and ham.  Easy peasy. 

Todd really enjoys these, and he is a simple man with simple tastes, so this basic one is all I usually do for him, but they are very easy to amp up with other flavours. You can try adding a line of salsa  and using jack cheese for a mexican flavour. Chopped tomatoes, peppers, olives, thinly sliced pepperoni and mozzarella for a pizza flavour.  Or just go veggie and have your favourite cooked sliced veggies and cheese.  I love broccoli and cheddar myself.  I think you are going to have fun making these and adapting them to your own tastes and flavours!

*Ham, Cheese & Egg Breakfast Wrap*
For 1
A simple easy breakfast wrap that your family will enjoy.  Quantities given are for one. This is very basic. You can add other things as you wish. Chopped peppers and tomatoes are nice, as well as olives.  Or make it a pizza one and leave out the ham, using thinly sliced pepperoni instead. This really is very easy to make your own. 

1 1/2 tsp butter
2 medium free range eggs
salt and black pepper to taste
1 TBS grated Parmesan Cheese
3 slices baked ham
2 TBS finely chopped spring onions
25g grated cheddar cheese (1/4 cup) 

Crack your eggs into a bowl and whisk them together with the salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese.  Melt the butter in a large non-stick skillet, over medium heat. Once the butter begins to foam, swirl it to coat the skillet and pour in your egg mixture, swirling it to cover the base of the pan.

Once it begins to look set around the edges, lay the spring onions down the centre of the egg mixture, leaving some space at the top and the bottom edges. 

Lay the cheese out on top of the spring onions. 

Lay the ham on top of the  cheese. 

Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid.  Cook for a further 2 to 3 minutes to heat everything through.  Everything should be hot and the cheese should be melted. 

Everything should be hot and the cheese should be melted.  

Fold over the top and bottom, and fold over the edges to enclose everything completely.  

 Serve immediately.

The neatness of your folds, will of course depend on how much you have inside the omelette.  I was rather generous with the ham the other day.  I couldn't separate it (hate it when that happens) so I just plopped a quantity on top!

At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter that it look exact.  It really only matters that it is delicious, and I can tell you I never hear any complaints what-so-ever!  Bon Appetit! 


  1. Hi Marie,

    I emailed you a month or so ago to ask you about your book. I did end up buying it and I like it very much! I like the sound of using cheese and broccoli with this recipe. Do you pre-cook the broccoli?
