So a few weeks ago Starbuck's announced that they were axing all of their breakfast sandwiches including my beloved Breakfast Wrap - the spinach, egg, feta cheese, and roasted tomatoes on a whole wheat tortilla. It was a reasonable 240 calories with 13 g. protein. ($3.25) I liked it because any city I traveled to in America had a Starbuck's so I always knew there was a cheap, tasty source of quick protein. Apparently the scent of the breakfast sandwiches interfered with the coffee aroma. CEO's of major companies make me laugh. I picture a bunch of old men sitting around a board room table arguing over the competing smell of a breakfast sandwich. Dude, your companies issues aren't about how your store smells it's that you charge $4 for a cup of coffee in a tanked economy.
My local Starbuck's still has a few of my wraps and will be apparently selling them until the supply runs out but it's only a matter of time before my Saturday morning after the Farmer's Market treat goes the way of the dodo. So I decided I would try and recreate the wrap at home.
Well all is right with the world again because the one I made the other morning is sooooo much better than Starbucks. Proving once again homemade is always best!
To jog your memory here's the Starbuck's version.
and here's mine...
Shelly's Starbuck's Breakfast Wrap (but Better)
12 Fresh Spinach Leaves, torn
2 Eggs, beaten
2 Fresh Mushrooms (sliced)
2 Tablespoons Feta Cheese, Crumbled
2 Tablespoons Trader Joe's Bruschetta Sauce (jarred)
Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Fajita Size Tortillas
Saute spinach and mushrooms in butter. Add beaten eggs. Scramble till not quite done. Spoon onto tortillas. Top with feta and Trader Joe's bruschetta sauce (I believe Contadina and Buitoni make a version too). Roll tortilla up. Place on George Foreman Grill (or Panini Grill) that has been sprayed with some non-stick spray or wiped with butter. Place lid down and cook for 5 minutes or until golden. Makes 2 Wraps.
Note: It's not your imagination the Starbuck's version does not have mushrooms but I heart them so in mine there is fungus! Feel free to remove.
While we are on the subject of Starbucks...
What does your Starbuck's order say about you???
