you can add what you wish too


Sprinkle eggs, bacon and cheese in the middle of a tortilla. Fold tortilla sides over and place in a plate, seam side down on a dinner plate. Microwave for 30 seconds - or just until thoroughly heated and serve. I just put them in the freezer and then put them in microwave when we wanted them for breakfast.
