Egg and Bacon Brunch Wraps
Canadian bacon, hot pepper sauce, and baby spinach make for a winning way to start the day!

Ingredients
1 cup cholesterol-free egg substitute
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 slices Canadian bacon, diced
1/2 teaspoon hot red pepper sauce
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 (7-inch) red chile tortillas or whole wheat tortillas
1 cup baby spinach leaves

Directions
Yield: 4 servings

1 – Preheat oven to 325°F. Combine egg substitute, cheese, bacon, red pepper sauce, and pepper in bowl. Pour into 9-inch glass baking dish sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray. Bake 15 minutes, or until egg substitute is set. Remove from oven.

2 – Place tortillas in oven 1 minute or until soft and pliable. Cut egg substitute into quarters. Place 1 wedge in center of each tortilla. Top with 1/4 cup spinach leaves. Fold bottom of tortilla to center; fold sides to center to enclose filling and serve immediately.

Note: Canadian bacon comes from the loin of the pig. It is much more meaty and has less fat than traditional bacon. As a result, it tastes more like ham in flavor. In order to reduce the sodium in this recipe, try meatless bacon which is usually made with soy products.
