Rise 'n Shine

I'm a fan of Greek food. So it should come as no surprise that I took some of my favorite elements of a great Greek salad and tweaked them to make a great breakfast sandwich. This wrap comes together in minutes if you already have the eggs boiled and the vegetables chopped. It's a great source of nutrition and a wonderful way to perk up your morning. I like making a strong latte and grabbing a piece of fruit to complement mine.

You can substitute some ingredients for others, although the combination described here really works for me. I've used crumbled goat cheese in place of the feta before with good results, though. Spring for fresh herbs, as they really add element of flavor that's impossible to get with dried.
