Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4

FOR ROASTS, CHOPS and TENDERLOINS

Cook to 145 F with 3 minute rest

Ingredients

12 ounces ham, 97% fat-free, chopped
1/3 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1/3 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
3 egg whites
2 eggs, whole
2 tablespoons milk, nonfat
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 8-inch flour tortillas, heated *
1/3 cup salsa
fresh cilantro, OR chives, chopped (optional)
Nonstick cooking spray

Cooking Directions


Cook red and green bell peppers and onion over medium heat in large nonstick skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray for 3-5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.

Beat together egg whites, eggs, milk, salt and black pepper in medium bowl until combined.

Pour egg mixture over vegetables in skillet. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until egg mixture begins to set on bottom and around edge. Lift and fold the partially cooked egg mixture with spatula so uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking and folding mixture until eggs are cooked through, but still glossy and moist. Fold in ham; continue cooking until heated through, gently folding mixture occasionally.

Remove skillet from heat. To assemble, spoon mixture near the center on each tortilla. Fold bottom up over filling. Fold in side and roll to enclose mixture.

To serve, top with salsa. Garnish with cilantro or chives, if desired.

Makes 4 servings

* To warm tortillas, place tortillas on dinner plate, slightly overlapping. Cover with damp paper towel. Microwave on HIGH about 30 seconds or until warm.

** Learn to become a label detective. When counting calories and fat, tortillas are not all alike. Be sure to flip the package over and compare the nutrition information from different brands.

Serving Suggestions

Chock-full of ham and eggs, these tasty burritos are a welcomed treat for the first meal of the day.

For the family on the run, no need to skip having a hot, nutritious breakfast. Make a batch of these burritos and wrap them individually in plastic wrap, then freeze. On those mornings when you’re hurried, just unwrap a burrito from its plastic wrap and rewrap it in a white paper towel. Microwave on HIGH (100%) about 2 minutes or until heated through. Serve with milk and juice.

About the Cut: Ham

Cured ham is leg meat that has been dry- or wet-cured. Hams are labeled according to the amount of water added to the ham during the curing process. Because the leg muscle is a well-exercised part of the hog, ham is surprisingly low in fat.

Butcher's Tips

All varieties of cured ham are either boneless or bone-in. Bone-in hams are traditionally considered more attractive and boneless are considered easier to serve because of simplified carving. Bone-in hams are available in a variety of shapes - whole or as a shank or butt half. Boneless hams also are available in a variety of sizes.

Made for Sunday breakfast. Super simple. Probably would be quick enough for even a weekday morning.
