This low carb egg wrap is a power house breakfast option when you're trying to limit eating bread, but want to feel full and satisfied. I make the egg wrap by whisking eggs with flour and water, frying it on a pan and stuffing it with veggies, herbs and cheese. It's totally customizable to your taste and diet goals!
Eggs are so versatile. Even when you think about just using them for breakfast, there are countless ways to prepare them. And that, my friends is admittedly why I’m borderline obsessed with having eggs for breakfast like 4 times a week!

And now…egg wrap!
This is an egg recipe inspired by a Lebanese style omelette called “ejjeh.”
In the version of ejjeh my mom makes, she whisks together eggs to make a thin crepe-like omelette. Then, she adds mashed potatoes on top, flavored with garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. I created this recipe for my low carb egg wrap as an inspiration from my mom. But instead of stuffing the egg wrap in mashed potatoes, I stuff it with mashed avocado because avocado is everything! And then on top of that, I throw in whatever vegetables I have on hand.
The only real necessary ingredients for this are, well, eggs – duh. But what I mean is you technically don’t even need the flour. But I like whisking it into the egg mixture to give it a bit more substance and change the consistency to mimic a (bright and yellow!) tortilla.
After I cook it on a non-stick pan, the egg wrap pretty much just looks like an open-face omelette.
But the beauty is you can stuff it however you’d like to and wrap it up like a sandwich!
I mashed some avocado with lemon juice, garlic paste, salt and pepper, and spread that on the entire thing. Then I added arugula, slices of tomatoes and crumbled feta cheese. You can also add turkey bacon or breakfast sausage or cold cuts like turkey in here and they work really well.
Wrap up that egg wrap and it basically looks like a tortilla full of green yumminess on the inside. I love how customizable this recipe is, how versatile it is to your taste buds and how healthy it is to kick off your morning!
