HEALTHY MAKE-AHEAD Low-carb Breakfast Wraps FOR MEAL PREP
These make-ahead burritos are the best for busy mornings when you really need something filling but don’t have the time to produce a lavish breakfast. If you want effortless meal prep as I really do, odds are you’re trying to find something pre-made and easy to reheat the next morning. These homemade cheesy, bacon, and egg burritos are it!
ARE Low-carb Breakfast Wraps KETO?
Regular Low-carb Breakfast Wraps are not keto or low carb friendly; however, low carb burritos are a great alternative for anyone carrying out a low carb lifestyle. They do contain wheat, so they’d not be looked at strict keto, but I eat them occasionally and stay static in ketosis.
WHAT IS IN A Low-carb Breakfast Wraps
There is no right or wrong way to produce a Low-carb Breakfast Wraps. Provided that there are eggs and low carb tortillas, the others is around you. Here are ingredients you could add in your burrito:
- scrambled eggs
- bacon, ham, sausage
I enjoy being creative with my Low-carb Breakfast Wraps, but with four kids, I prefer a simple, hearty breakfast, which explains why I chose to create this burrito recipe with just a couple of staple ingredients; Eggs, bacon, and cheese.
HOW TO MAKE Low-carb Breakfast Wraps
As I mentioned, these burrito wraps are not 100% keto-friendly because many who follow a strict keto diet avoid wheat; however, they ARE low carb! If you avoid grains on keto, this would be the perfect recipe to apply for a “cheat day” with no carb-overload.
I used a brand that’s just 16 grams of carbs with 11 grams of fiber, making them only 5 grams of net carbs. (Check out the brand in my own recipe below.) Some tortillas can contain around 26 grams of carbs, so compare labels at the food store in the event that you can’t discover the brand I used.
To create this easy burrito, get your ingredients prepared first. You should pre-cook your eggs and bacon. Also, have your tortillas ready to go.
You can choose any tortilla you like but look for the low carb variety if you’re sticking to a semi-keto friendly diet. They have so many tortilla options in the store, so find one you like best that suits your dietary needs.
Next, take your scrambled egg mixture, shredded cheese, and crumbled bacon and add to the center of every tortilla. You intend to be generous along with your filling but not as generous, which means you can’t roll your burritos.
Tip: In this recipe, I used sharp cheddar cheese and white cheddar cheese, but feel free to make use of any other cheese that you prefer.Roll each burrito and place seam side down in a casserole dish. Sprinkle more bacon and cheese over the top of burritos and bake. (See directions in the recipe card at the end of this post for the temperature and time.)
Enjoy them while they’re hot! They’re so easy to create, and I enjoy they are a healthier breakfast that my kids love. It’s a great way to begin the day.
