Mountain Bread Eggy Cups

Mountain bread wraps are my favourite healthy alternative to bread and other doughy wraps also the big winner for me is that they are preservative free not like most other brand wraps on the market. They come in all sort of varieties and are easily found in the wrap section in your local supermarket. But did you know you can make other things besides eating them as wraps?

I have used Mountain Bread sheets to make all sorts of things from pizzas to enchiladas and this recipe of using them as casing for eggy cups or frittatas if you like. It gives them the outer crunch without all the butter and calories of pastry. You can use whatever ingredients you like in the egg mix, I used chopped ham, grated cheese, corn  and tomato to make them kid friendly for my kid’s school lunches. You can add other cooked veggies like broccoli, pumpkin or spinach to add extra veggie goodness. They are super easy  to make even the kids can help you make them.
