Keto Egg Wrap with Collard Greens Recipe, 3 Ways

Keto egg wraps provide nearly endless options for make-ahead breakfasts, quick keto burritos, and tacos, as well as wraps for easy keto lunch and dinner recipes. These low-carb egg wraps cook quickly in a cast-iron skillet in the time—about 30 seconds per side—it takes to warm a grain-free tortilla or store-bought egg wrap with cauliflower. These fast, versatile, and neutral-tasting egg wraps give keto dieters a budget-friendly alternative to spendy packaged keto-friendly tortillas, wraps, and substitutes for carb-filled grains. Not to be confused with keto egg roll wraps or wrappers, our keto egg wrap recipe starts with a simple egg pancake or thin egg omelet. You could use this egg wrap in place of traditional egg roll wrappers made with flour; simply fill the egg wrap with cabbage slaw and ground pork. To keep it easy, roll up this egg roll bowl recipe in one of these egg wraps. Our keto egg wraps are seasoned simply with salt and pepper to allow the flavors of the other ingredients added to the egg wraps to shine. If you remember the bland taste of flour tortillas—homemade corn tortillas possess a bit more oompf—you want the same thing here. Pile veggies, protein, a bit of cheese or smashed avocado, keto-friendly sauces, or mayo inside the egg wrap, and you’ll appreciate the nuances of the fats, meats, or plants. The keto egg wraps serve as a vessel for holding flavor and fade into the background; that’s what you want. Keto egg wraps are part omelet, part crepe but less fussy than both to prepare. 5 Easy Steps to Cooking Keto Egg Wraps Spray a seasoned cast-iron skillet with avocado oil spray. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and place the pan in the oven for 10–12 minutes to heat up. Combine eggs, water, salt, and pepper in a bowl, and whisk together with a fork. Remove the hot skillet from the oven (use oven mitts!) and place the hot pan on the stove turned on to medium-high heat. Swirl ½ tablespoon of avocado oil in a hot skillet with a few gentle wrist circles. Pour egg mixture into the skillet and spread it out evenly with a spatula. Once the eggs start to pull away from the sides of the skillet, tilt the skillet and gently pull the egg from the edges. Doing so will allow the raw egg in the middle to fill the pan’s spaces so it can set—this should take about 30 seconds. Run the spatula underneath the egg, place one hand over the top of the egg wrap and carefully flip the egg over. Allow it to cook for another 30 seconds on the other side. Remove the egg wrap from the pan, fill, and wrap. How to Roll Egg Wraps Like a Pro We use parchment paper to help roll the egg wraps neatly and provide a ready-to-grab-and-eat vessel for storage. If you don’t have parchment or don’t want to use unnecessary paper, leave it out. The wraps will roll … Continue reading “Keto Egg Wrap with Collard Greens Recipe, 3 Ways”
