Huevos Rancheros Wraps

Start your Cinco De Mayo off on the right foot today with a healthy and easy morning breakfast. My Huevos Rancheros Wraps are loaded with protein, vegetables and carbohydrates. This recipe is great for the kids and adults, with only 15 minutes of preparation time.

When I worked on my first cookbook 400 Best Sandwich Recipes, I wanted to the first chapter of the book to be a breakfast chapter. This was in 2011, when breakfast sandwiches were not very popular. I have twenty breakfast recipes in the breakfast chapter, and my publisher continues to tell me how much foresight I had. Nine years later, I’m still making these Huevos Rancheros Wraps.

Feel free to add or subtract ingredients from this recipe to make this your own. For example, substitute thawed frozen edamame beans for the black beans. Add corn and substitute Monterey Jack cheese for the cheddar cheese. If you don’t like black olives or onions, remove them. If you want to add additional protein, top these wraps off with plain nonfat Greek yogurt. I hope you enjoy this recipe. Have a great Tuesday and week ahead!

Kids Favorite Panini Sandwich

Okay. I have found my newest favorite kitchen appliance. Frigidaire’s 5-in-1 Grill and Griddle has recently launched at Target just in time for Father’s Day, wedding gifts or college graduate gifts. My kids and I are addicted to using it this summer making sandwiches such as this Kids Favorite Panini Sandwich and so many more. They can even use this on their own with minimal supervision (of course, my youngest is 12).

This panini maker is so fabulous! With two extra-large, reversible cooking plates and independent, dual-temperature controls, you can cook panini’s for two or burgers for six on this easy-to-use appliance. An innovative open-flat design is perfect for cooking pancakes and bacon simultaneously – or fold it to cook everything from slim sandwiches to plump burgers. Removable dishwasher-safe plates and a sleek stainless steel look make the Frigidaire Professional 5-in-1 Grill and Griddle. It rocks!
