The viral TikTop tortilla wrap, made complete for breakfast with cheese, eggs and basic vegetables…
Is it just me who feels time is running at super speed? Last week, I had plans to do at least one post on the blog. I did some basics of it but then I don’t know how the days flew by that I just didn’t get the chance to even sit on my blog. Somehow, the blog numbers have been disheartening as well post Ramadan. During Ramadan, being a Muslimah blogger’s food page, I get a good number of hits then, which then dissipates and sinks back to the old or even newer lows. Hehe… Anyway, somehow participating in the Blogging Marathon just makes sure I put some content on the blog, if nothing extra. This week, I have chosen “Trending Recipes” as my theme for the BM #146.
TikTok has become the base of a lot of easy recipes especially during the lockdown period. Dalgona coffee was definitely one of them, among the many that surfaced. When the whole world was trying and posting them in their stories or otherwise, I was still in my cocoon trying to push myself to cook for survival. I somehow don’t get fazed by trends as such. I don’t know if it is a good or a bad trait. Hehe… So I have decided to pick up this theme each time it appears under BM themes because I found so many interesting recipes that I would really love to give a try. One of the most well received recipes has to be this tortilla wrapping idea, that went viral for good reason.
The beauty of this recipe is that you can make it the way you want. The idea of wrapping it into a triangle actually makes the process of eating it less messy. Plus, you don’t have to wrap it up in an extra foil or wrapping paper for the fear of dripping. Hehe… The whole point is to cut the tortilla on one side to depict a one-fourth, keep four different fillings on each of the quarter, flip to cover and then toast lightly. I love the combination of egg and cheese, so made an omelette – you can make scramble too -, used one cheese slice in one quarter, and used lettuce and cherry tomatoes in the other quarters. My only problem was that my tortilla was small. To comfortably make a nice looking triangle wrap, try to use wraps which are more than 9 inch. Mine was 8 inch, so the fillings were tough to contain. Even then, I just ate it down, it was too good… Never going to wrap a tortilla any other way… hehe…
Before going to the recipe, a little personal update… My elder one Rasha is sweet sixteen today. I wonder why this age is called “sweet”. I feel it is the most awkward age where you neither feel here nor there. 😀 I still can’t forget how tiny she was when she was born and sometimes my heart swells looking at how fast she is growing. Before we even know, they just grow out of our hands and then just become different people. All we can do is to cling their childhood and accept time that is moving on… As always, my prayer, like is the prayer of every mother, is that the Almighty give her the best, keep her in His Path and Guidance always… Aameen…
