Breakfast Tortillas

Do you feel like a little something different for breakfast? I don’t know about you, but I’m addicted to having variety in my diet! Here’s what Jesse and I had for breakfast this morning (Jeremy just looked at us funny).

I had tortilla dough soaking overnight ’cause I’m making fajita’s for dinner. Inspired by the cinnamon sugar variation on the recipe, but not wanting to mix cinnamon into my whole batch of dough, here’s what I did…I mixed 1 tsp. cinnamon with 2 Tbsp. succanut and rolled a portion of dough in it before I pressed it flat on the tortilla maker. The result was a slightly sweetened, subtly flavored, crispy tortilla, which we then spread with homemade yogurt and a fresh grated apple and rolled up like a burrito.


Jesse ate two with evident relish, I had three! They were sort of like crepes, but a lot healthier! ๐Ÿ™‚

If you don’t have a tortilla maker, you could get a similar result, I would think, from heating store bought tortillas in a frying pan with a little butter, then sprinkling them with cinnamon and sugar. Try it!

    I could so picture Jeremy’s look while you were doing this because I would get that same look from Michael. ‘Course he has strange rigid rules when it comes to food and what should be sweet vs savory, lol. Mike’s answer to me would be “Why wouldn’t you just roll up some egg, cheese and hot sauce and just have a breakfast burrito?”But I think they look delicious..

    This sounds delicious! I need to get me a tortilla press. It would go sooo much quicker than rolling them all out by hand!

    Trina, those look SO good! Now I wish I had a tortilla maker so that I could do some. Maybe my mom wouldn’t notice if I stole hers…;)I sent you an email the other day, but I think I only have your old address. I am looking for some good, tried-and-true, lacto-fermented bread recipes, and I know that you’re probably the one to help me! Anything would be appreciated, but especially recipes that make good sandwiches (Wes’ main source of lunch food). I know you’re busy with the new baby and all, so no rush–I just thought I’d see if it was a possibility. ๐Ÿ™‚Thanks!Rachel
