Baked Egg and Potato Wraps

I've been umming and arring over typing this recipe up...on one hand it was delicious..on the other it does not win any beauty prizes! In the end I obviously have if you are reading this far but may I suggest you tweak to your own liking? My boyfriend enjoyed it but wanted meat to make it complete, Saying that I do think a sneaky bit of ham would be most pleasant but for me it was tasty on its own... I think they would make a tasty breakfast wrap too, maybe folded more into a parcel shape to be more transportable. Definitely going to explore that option more as I ate my second one cold the next day and was equally tasty hot or cold!

Overall this dish mostly consisted of leftovers and bargains - I picked up a lot of eggs reduced to 25p and as a result have been making lots of egg-citing recipes! I think August might be an egg free month....! The wraps had been loitering in the fridge far too long but still passable when baked, and the potatoes were left from the previous night. I always like to cook a few extra to help form the next meal, saves time especially on a busy evening!

Talking of busy life right now seems busy but good busy. Its been a hellish few months in all honesty with family, friend and work issues but it all seems to be smoothing over at last, and I hope normality is on the horizon! My blog as a result has been just about simpering along, mainly as I needed to focus my energy elsewhere, plus its also given me some breathing space, I have been blogging so long I think get lost along the way at times, I love making recipes and that's all I want to do and share with you all along the way, and hopefully I will ease back in the blogging saddle.

Serves 2-4 depending on hunger


4 wholemeal wraps
500g leftover cooked potatoes, diced
75g good quality mayonaise (I love Waitrose's one with extra virgin olive oil)
2 boiled large free range eggs, diced up
2 tsp wholegrain mustard
80g grated extra mature cheddar + 1 tbsp
1/2 tsp Italian herb mix or dried mixed herbs
4 tbsp ready made tomato based sauce (I used a special edition balsamic ketchup)

Pre-heat the oven. Line a 26cm tray bake/ roasting tin and pre-heat oven to 200o.

Combine the eggs, potato, mayo, cheese and mustard.

Lay out the wrap, spoon a quarter into the middle, fold up the bottom, tuck over the mixture and roll tightly, place in the baking tin, tucking in the ends and repeat with the remaining three. 

Spoon over the tomato sauce, sprinkle with the cheese and herbs, bake for 25 minutes or until golden.

Serve with a lightly dressed salad.

Whilst the wraps were not intended for breakfast originally, the leftovers did indeed become my breakfast and this dish would work easily for breakfast, brunch or dinner so I am sneaking in to

Also as they used up my reduced eggs, the last of a jar of mayo, abandoned wraps and leftover potato I have put them in Fuss Free Flavours Credit Crunch Munch round-up too, held by Fab Food 4 All this month:

Disclaimer: Happy Eggs sent me a voucher to cover the cost of the Eggs, though the supermarket over charged me and then refunded me more than I had originally paid, so they are super free-free range eggs if that makes sense!
