Homemade is Better—Ham and Swiss Breakfast Wrap

I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off! Spring has sprung, and May rolled in like a lion!  This pace has prevented me from getting these recipes done for a while, but here is another entry into my compendium of culinary delights.  This week I made myself a delicious breakfast wrap.

I had some leftover large tortillas from a taco night, and we also had some Swiss cheese.  I was trying to think of something to write about, so I grabbed some ham and warmed it up.  I then melted the cheese slightly and added some scrambled eggs to a tortilla.  It turned out well, and thus I got a recipe.

Cooking seems intimidating to some, but it is very effortless for others.  Creating recipes is a whole other world to many, though.  Creating recipes is easy enough.  If you find a recipe you like, you work with it.  Try it in its original written form a few times, then change an ingredient.  If you, for example, always use iceberg lettuce for your tacos, try romaine.  If you make mac n cheese according to the package directions, add some shredded mozza.  These little changes are what make recipes unique.  Soon you can try putting things that might not belong together and try them.  Many recipes in history were discovered this way.  Caesar Cardini is one example.  You might know him from his most famous recipe, Caesar salad, invented in Mexico.  Another recipe that we might not realize was pure luck was the chocolate chip cookie.  The inventory added broken chocolate, thinking it would melt, and voila, we have the chocolate chip cookie.  Sometimes playing in the kitchen can invent a dish that makes you rich!

I know this won’t make me millions of dollars, but I hope you enjoy it a million times.
