Our guest post today is from Pat, the mother of 2 little girls of seven and three, who works from home and makes healthy, easy and kid-friendly meals for her daughters on a daily basis.

Now that school is back in session, I usually prepare my kid’s school lunches by using leftovers from the previous night’s dinner; but when the family goes out for dinner or it’s just pizza night (which usually means no leftovers) I always resort to my Omelet Tortilla Sandwich to stuff those lunch bags.


  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1 chopped garlic clove
  • 2 or 3 eggs
  • 1/8 cup of milk
  • ½ a green pepper (chopped) or any vegetable of your choice that your kids will eat
  • ½ a cup of cheddar (grated)
  • 1/2 cup of diced ham (optional)
  • 2 big tortillas pieces (or 1 or 2 pieces of sliced or pita bread)
  • In Snax pita crisps, sea salt or multigrain flavours


  1. In a medium skillet fry the garlic clove in the olive oil for 1 to 2 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, salt and pepper to taste. Add the chopped pepper and the cheddar. Cook the omelet over medium heat.
  2. When your omelet is cooked, put one tortilla on top of the omelet and turn it over with the help of a big plate, then put the other tortilla on top. Cut in triangles or roll and serve with a side of In Snax pita crisps.

Note: If you are using sliced bread instead of the tortillas, first you should fold the omelet on itself before putting the bread on top then pick up with a spatula and turn over to apply the other piece of bread.
