Breakfast Phyllo Wrap

These Breakfast Phyllo Wraps are perfect for when you need a breakfast on the go! I am almost always eating breakfast while I’m in the car or while I’m walking around the house getting the kids ready for school in the morning…so something nutritious, delicious, and that can be carried in one hand is ideal. I usually make these wraps in bulk and then freeze them, so whenever I need one, I can just pop it out of the freezer and heat it up. My Breakfast Phyllo Wraps are basically a traditional breakfast of bacon and eggs topped with American cheese and rolled into a phyllo that is baked until crisp and golden brown. To keep it lighter and healthy, I used egg whites, whole wheat phyllo, and fat free cheese. If Points aren’t a concern of yours, feel free to use real eggs and cheese. Also, you add in some onion, tomatoes, mushrooms…any other veggies you’d like, if you want to bulk it up a bit. They are absolutely delicious and a great Weight Watchers breakfast at just 4 Points per serving.

Ingredients

  • 4 sheets of whole wheat phyllo dough (approx 13” x 18”)

  1. Low fat enchiladas or even cinnamon rolls made with phyllo dough is good.

  2. I made these tonight, served them with fresh fruit. Very delicious!! Super flakey and rich :)

  3. This looks great! I’m always looking for fast healthy breakfasts during the school year. When making this to have on hand do you bake them before you freeze them? How long to do they typically take to reheat? (I’m assuming you use the microwave?) Thanks!

  4. I’ve never heard of whole wheat phyllo dough. Can you give me some ideas as to where I can find it? This looks like a great on the go breakfast! Thanks.

      I got mine in the freezer section of the store…near the frozen pie shells. The store was Whole Foods…but most healthy grocery store chains should carry it.
