If you are somewhat familiar with Greek cuisine, you may notice that it is a bit light on the breakfast side. It’s not because Greeks despise breakfast or anything, they just don’t really eat it.
With late night meals (not uncommon to sit for dinner at 9 or 10pm) and early rising for work, there isn’t always a need for it. And when the time does come to grab a snack, say around 10 or 11am, it’s things like spanakopita or tiropita that you’d find most people eating. I know, you may have thought Greek yogurt, as that’s a popular go-to here in the states, and one that Jane and I often have, but that is really reserved for dessert (topped with honey).
Therefore, Jane and I try, and sometimes succeed, in creating Greek inspired breakfast items. This one is not only a great breakfast style wrap, it is also pretty dang healthy. It provides a great source of protein and will keep you full all while supplying great energy so you can take on the day! Wow, that sounds like a commercial line (haha).
Seriously, it makes a great breakfast because it’s fast and taste delicious.
Give it a try, we hope you’ll like like!
Until next time,
