How To: Make a JB


      Here are UNH, there is this little place called Franzs that has a huge menu and is just fantastic. Most people (including myself) order the "JB" which is the best breakfast wrap you will ever have. Don't even try and argue me on that. I can't have them anymore because of my dairy allergy stupid butter so I figured out my own way to make them, and while it's a no-brainer, I'm gonna share my method with all of you. 

 Here's what you will need:
  • 1 large tortilla wrap
  • 1 potato patty/hash brown (I recommend Cavendish brand)
  • 2 large eggs
  • Bacon (as much as you want)
  • 2 slices of American cheese (if you're lucky and can have dairy)
  • Ketchup
  • Oil & Butter
     To start out, pour a bit of oil in a small pan (I eyeball it but probably 3 tablespoons would be fine). Put the burner just above medium, and let it get warm.
      While the oil is heating up, start melting a couple slabs of butter (Earth Balance brand if you are dairy free) in a medium to large pan, and crack in two eggs when the butter is melted and spread around.

     The oil from pan 1 should then be heated up, so drop the frozen hash-brown in, and be careful of oil splatter! Keep an eye on the hash-brown, and flip it when he edges are golden brown.
    Back to the eggs. Break the yolks or you'll have a runny JB, and don't forget to flip them before they burn!

  When they are done, put the heat on "low" and put the eggs off to the side. You'll use this pan again later for the tortilla. At this point, the hash-brown should also be done, golden brown, and crispy. Cut it in half, and put it off to the side with your eggs. Now start cooking that bacon! Or if you're like me and get the easy kind, put it in the microwave for 20 seconds.

     Take your tortilla wrap, and put it in the egg pan, that you put on a "low" heat setting earlier. Only keep it in there for about a minute on each side, to warm it up.

      Once everything has been cooked, you will want to put the eggs, bacon, cheese (if you can have it), and hash-brown halves on one side of the tortilla wrap, with ketchup on top.

     My wrap was a little bit small, so I tried to move everything toward the top so I could fold/close off the bottom. Once it's all situated, roll it up!

      If your wrap is big enough, you can close off the top too...but I hate when the first bite is all tortilla. Yuck.

It may sound like a lot of work, but it usually takes me about five minutes tops to make my version of a JB. Tastes just the same too! If you go to UNH, you'll appreciate this, and if you don't go to UNH, you have to try this! Good luck!
