Is This Meal Keto-Friendly?
Yes, of course! One serving of this cheese wrap gives just 637 calories and 4 carbs. This makes it a perfect option for a keto breakfast.
What Cheese Can You Use
Maybe you’ve already noticed, but mozzarella is one of my favorite keto-friendly cheeses. I add it to almost all of my recipes. If you’re wondering about what other kinds of cheese you can use in the recipe, here’s some of them:
- Colby jack
Of course, there are many other keto-friendly cheese types, but they don’t have the melting properties needed for this recipe. For that reason, it’s best to choose a cheese kind that is listed here.
What to Put Inside the Cheese Wrap
There are so many options that you can try for the ingredients of the cheese wrap. Here are some of the options that I’ve already tested out and that I really like:
- Salad + bacon + scrambled eggs + tomato + mayonnaise
- Salad + dill pickles + salami + ketchup + mustard
- Salad + chicken + bacon + salami + mayonnaise + tomato paste
- Salad + fried egg + fried minced beef + ketchup + extra cheese
However, you should remember that the calories that are listed in the end were counted based on the ingredients listed on the recipe card. So if you decide to add other ingredients, the number of calories, fat, carbs, and protein will be different.
Also, when choosing products for the keto cheese wrap such as mayonnaise or ketchup, make sure that you get a high-fat, low-carb option. Always be on the lookout for sugar in the products.
Homemade Sauce For the Cheese Wrap
I’ve been making my own sauce for all of my keto sandwiches and cheese wraps for some time now. I find it more convenient for me since I know exactly what I’m consuming, and I like the fact that I can be sure there are no harmful ingredients in it.
For this type of cheese wrap, I usually make the sauce out of the following ingredients: 1 large egg, ½ cup of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, salt, pepper, minced garlic clove, ½ teaspoon of vinegar, and ½ teaspoon of mustard. I add all of the ingredients into a hand blender cup and simply mix.
I also like to use different spices and herbs with the sauce, such as cayenne pepper, dried oregano, onion powder, fresh parsley, etc.
How to Make the Keto Wrap
To make the keto wrap, you can either use a skillet or oven. I usually go with the oven since the baking pan that I use is the ideal size of 9 x 7 inches. It may be difficult to wrap everything up after making it in the skillet (since it’s round), but at least you’ll be able to make some delicious keto tacos, right?
It’s also much easier to remove the cheese wrap from the parchment paper than from the skillet!
But if you still decide that you want to use the skillet to make the keto cheese wrap, then put it on low heat and sprinkle the shredded cheese all over it. Cook for about 5-6 minutes. When you notice it turn a slight brown shade or air bubbles appear here and there, it means that the cheese wrap is ready.
How to Store It
Since it doesn’t take much time to make this cheese wrap, there’s no need to freeze it for meal prepping purposes. If you have leftovers, just wrap them up in a plastic wrap and place them in the fridge. This cheese wrap can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days, depending on what ingredients you used inside the cheese wrap.
If you know that you won’t have enough time to make breakfast for you and your family, you can make this cheese wrap the night before and simply place it into the refrigerator until morning.
