Miami Heat Home Opener Recipe: D-Wade BBQ Breakfast Wrap

​The Heat opens at home tonight against the Orlando Magic. According to Chef Michael Jacobs (interviewed here and here): "This breakfast wrap is one of the Miami Heat players' favorites. High in protein (turkey and eggs), low in fat and wrapped in a high fiber whole wheat tortilla shell, then cooked with fresh tomatoes, this is a breakfast loaded with anti-oxidants (lycopene), vitamins A and C and fiber."

D-Wade BBQ Breakfast Wrap with Turkey and Scrambled Eggs
Serves 6

6 eight-inch whole wheat tortillas
3 eggs
low-fat cheddar cheese (optional, to taste)
chopped green onion (optional, to taste)


BBQ Turkey Mixture

½ lb. ground turkey breast
1 cup chopped tomato (about two large tomatoes)
2 Tbs sugar-free ketchup
1 Tbs Splenda
2 oz. white vinegar
1 tsp kosher salt
½ tsp black pepper

To make turkey mixture: Spray low-fat non stick spray into a preheated skillet and add the ground turkey. Sauté until cooked through than add the rest of the ingredients. Simmer at low heat for 15 minutes or until the mixture pulls away from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Set aside.

To make wraps: Warm whole wheat tortillas in a toaster or oven. Scramble one egg over low heat in a skillet and divide between two tortillas. Add two tablespoons of the turkey mixture in each and fold over. Low fat cheddar cheese and chopped green onion add a little pizzazz!
