Herby Egg Roll-Ups – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Quick and easy breakfasts are always in order even on the weekends, when you might have a round of golf to get to or kids to take to soccer practice.  I saw this technique during Covid — pour an egg over a tortilla in a buttered skillet, then fold it up into a log.  I thought it sounded pretty cool, but I wanted to add some additional flavor notes before rolling it up, so I sprinkled some freshly chopped herbs onto the custardy egg before rolling.  The results — a delightfully delicious egg roll up with a buttery tortilla, lightly whipped egg and fragrant basil.

These herby egg roll-ups are done is a minute or so, and can be enjoyed on your way to almost any event.  I also think you could make a batch and keep them in a low oven to serve for brunch or shell them out individually hot off the skillet for a fun interactive party.  You could get pretty creative with the fillings.
