Low Carb Egg Wraps

Paleo, Keto, Dairy-Free, Low Carb, Minimal Ingredients, Easy

These low carb egg wraps contain only eggs and are perfect for those who are following a low carb diet and looking to avoid processed foods.

Last year I started meal prepping my husband’s breakfast on Sunday night for the weeks’ morning meals. I do this for many reasons, but mainly it saves money, and it’s better for his health.

I am lucky enough to be able to stay home with my kids while he works. While I can make a healthy meal any day and time for myself, he can’t always do the same.

These egg wraps were one of the first breakfast meal prep ideas I had (and still make)! Once you get the egg wrap down and done, you can roll anything up in it – making this one of the most universal breakfast ideas out there! (See ideas below)!

You’ll want to read this blog post in its entirety for more helpful tips and tricks you’d typically by-pass. Or if, you are feeling lucky, jump to the recipe below and get started!

Either way, I’d love to hear how your egg wraps turned out, so please leave a comment and share it with your friends and family.

How to Make Low Carb Egg Wraps

These low carb egg wraps are perfect for making breakfast burritos or wrapping your favorite sandwich contents in! They are high in saturated fats and proteins and only contain 1 gram of healthy carbohydrates! This wrap is great for those on a low carb diet!

1. Heat bacon lard in an 8-inch skillet over medium-high heat for 3 minutes or until the oil starts to shimmer.

Tip: bacon lard can be swapped out for equal parts of avocado or coconut oil. Bacon lard is my preferred fat to cook with because it is temperature stable and has a high smoke point while adding extra healthy saturated fats to the wrap.

2. In a small bowl, whisk eggs.

3. Pour whisked eggs into the skillet and gently title the skillet back and forth until the eggs are evenly dispersed in the pan.

Tip: Season with sea salt and black pepper or any other desired seasonings.

4. Cook eggs for 2 minutes or until the egg is no longer visibly runny.

5. Carefully flip the egg with a spatula (without breaking) and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until firm.

6. Transfer the egg to a plate and layer with all your favorite toppings and roll up like a wrap!

How to Store Low Carb Egg Wraps

Bacon lard can be stored on the counter or in the refrigerator for up to 6 months!! (You could probably go longer, but just make sure you use your senses to see and smell for any signs of lard going bad).

Note: See “How to Make Bacon Lard” at the end for more information.

These egg wraps are an excellent breakfast (or lunch) meal prep recipe! Each Sunday, I make five egg wraps for my husband and turn them into egg burritos by wrapping some of his favorite add-ins. (His favorite is pepper jack goat cheese, Applegate breakfast sausages, and sauteed spinach)!

Basic Staples for Making Low Carb Egg Wraps

Bacon Lard – I don’t purchase bacon lard (grease), I save the drippings from my cooked bacon! Read more about bacon lard below!

Eggs – The best eggs are locally pasture-raised!

How to Make Bacon Lard

Obtaining bacon lard is easy – you don’t even need to go to the store to buy a jar. Simply open a package of your favorite nitrate and sugar-free bacon and bake it in the oven!

The oven is my preferred method of cooking bacon, just because its less hassle with flipping and makes little to no mess!

First, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line an edged baking sheet with tin foil (or you’re preferred way) and place bacon in a single layer with minimal to no overlap.

Next, bake bacon in the preheated oven for 13 to 17 minutes. The time is really dependent on how thick your bacon is and how crispy you like it. I always check mine around the 13-minute mark and add more time as needed.

Remove baking sheet from oven, transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined sheet or plate and allow your pan to cool before moving on to the next step below.

Once the pan is cool to touch (bacon lard should still be in liquid form), pour the lard through a mesh strainer into a glass mason jar. The mesh strainer will remove any large particles that may cause the lard to go rancid over time.

You can store your bacon lard two ways on the counter or in the refrigerator. I prefer the fridge method because I’m not too fond of stuff sitting out on my kitchen counter. #clutter
