This Breakfast Wrap is a filling and nutritious start to your day. Packed with salty bacon, egg, creamy avocado and cheese, and finished with a tangy barbecue sauce, this comforting breakfast can be on the table in just 10 minutes, eaten on the go and also freezes really well.
If you are looking for some new breakfast ideas, then this is definitely something to try. This McDonalds Breakfast Wrap copycat is really filling and protein packed breakfast, and these breakfast wraps are so easy to make and can be adapted to suit your own tastes and make use of what ingredients you have on hand too.
This isn't like a breakfast burrito, as it doesn't have all the Mexican flavours. Why not try our Freezable Breakfast Burrito recipe.

Ingredients and substitutions
- Wraps - We like to use large tortilla wraps for these breakfast wraps, as you can fit more in them. We went with wholewheat for extra fibre, but corn or white wraps would work well too.
- Bacon - We used smoked bacon medallions. But unsmoked and streaky bacon work well too. You could even use turkey bacon which is leaner.
- Eggs - This is where all the protein comes from. Use high welfare eggs.
- Sauce - We went with BBQ sauce, but ketchup works too.
- Spinach - An easy way to give a green vegetable boost to these breakfast wraps.
- Cheese - We used a mature cheddar, as it has lots of flavour so you don't need to use as much of it. You could use Swiss cheese or even feta.
- Avocado - This adds a lovely creaminess to the breakfast wraps and some extra greens too.
A full ingredients list with measurements is in the recipe card below.
How to make Breakfast Wraps - Step by step
One: Cook the bacon to your liking, then chop into small pieces.
Two: Meanwhile, beat the eggs and season with salt and pepper. Make two omelettes, again, to your liking.
Three: Spread the wraps with barbecue sauce. Add the chopped spinach and bacon to the wrap.
Four: Add the omelette, grated cheese and sliced avocado.
Five: Roll the wrap up, slice in half and serve.
We love an opportunity to add some vegetables to a meal, and these wraps are easy to stuff with veggies. We just added some chopped spinach, but you could also go with some bell peppers, cooked mushrooms or shredded carrots too. Not only do they make the wraps more nutrient dense, but they add lots of colour too.
How to fold a wrap
Firstly you need a large tortilla wrap - we are talking about 10 inches. Any smaller you are going to struggle to fold it especially with this amount of filling. You are going to want to warm it a little first, as that will make it easier to wrap without tearing. Either put it in the microwave for a couple of seconds, or in a dry pan.
Add your filling - less than you think you will need. Put it in a line across the tortilla, towards the bottom, leaving the top ⅔ free and a couple of inches at the side.
Fold in the sides, until they almost touch but not quite. Then fold up the bottom part whilst holding in the sides and just keep on rolling, keeping it tight, until it is all rolled up. You can then wrap it in foil to keep it secure.
What to serve with breakfast wraps
These are pretty filling as they are, and to be honest they already have everything you could need from a breakfast packed inside of them. However, if you were serving these up as a big family brunch and wanted to have something on the side, then our Baked Home Fries or Baked Hash Browns will work well.
You can cook the bacon and grate the cheese in advance, but I would cook the egg fresh and don't cut the avocado open until you are ready to use it. These wraps don't take long to make, so they are always best made from fresh.
These freeze really well and it's handy to have a store of these so you have some easy breakfasts to defrost overnight and then reheat and eat on the go if you have a busy morning. So make more than you need so you can freeze some.
When making them up, leave our the avocado and spinach (as these don't freeze well) wrap them in cling film or baking paper individually and then store inside a freezer bag and take them out as and when you need them. Allow them to fully defrost and then reheat them in the microwave for a minute. You can then add spinach and avocado before serving.
• It's important not to over-stuff these, as it will make them difficult to wrap.
• You can add extra veggies with mushrooms, bell peppers or shredded carrot.
• Make these more indulgent with some grilled halloumi.
• These freeze really well and will keep for up to two months.
• Serve these with hash browns or home fries for a more filling meal or if feeding a crowd.
