Egg sandwiches have become a breakfast staple, with countless ways to enjoy them. You can add whatever veggies you like…to me, it’s always a bonus to use any leftovers I may have stashed in the fridge from the night before. In this version, I’m featuring two green superstars—spinach and avocado—always a sure thing in my house.

And while it’s easy to layer scrambled eggs and fixins on a tortilla and then wrap it up…. this “egg-pan trick” is absolute fun and will make your meal an extra-special experience.  You can choose whatever kind of tortilla fits your eating style (whole grain, low-carb, gluten-free, and so on), just be sure it’s the right size to fit neatly into the pan.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 serving
  • • 1 cup spinach leaves (1 large handful)
  • • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Pinch salt and pepper
  • • 1 whole-grain tortilla (~8-inch)
  • • ½ avocado, sliced or mashed
  • Extra seasonings and hot sauce, optional

Liberally mist a 10-inch skillet with oil spray and warm over medium heat. Add spinach to pan and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Evenly distribute the cooked spinach on bottom of pan.

Pour eggs over spinach and tilt the pan so the eggs spread out and cover the entire pan’s surface. Sprinkle on a pinch of salt and pepper (and any additional herbs you’d like) over the top. While eggs are still wet, place the tortilla on top and allow the egg to cook and firm, about 2 minutes. Once the egg is firmed, using a wide spatula, flip the tortilla and place the mashed or sliced avocado on one side. Fold the tortilla in half and press gently with spatula to set.

Transfer to a plate, slice in half and enjoy!

Disclaimer: To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked to 160 degrees.
