If you’re on a keto or low-carb diet, eggs are one of the most nutrient-dense foods you can enjoy for very minimal carbs. They are abundant in so many keto and low-carb recipes, but some days you just might be not feeling the desire for eggs. That’s why this keto omelette wrap recipe is so amazing!
The base of the recipe is your traditional omelette option and can be filled with whatever you like. Adding heavy cream creates a fluffier and satisfying omelette, in my opinion. It can also be made without cream for a dairy-free, more traditional omelette option. You could also replace it with coconut milk for a slightly sweeter coconut tasting omelette roll-up if you prefer.
You can use so many different ingredients to make a wrap. My For Real Keto Tortilla recipe from my cookbook, Naturally Keto is a good one, but if you just don’t feel like making a recipe for a wrap, try boiling some cabbage leaves and wrapping a burger with it or making a deli-style roll-up. Lettuce is always a quick and easy idea for burgers or sandwiches as well. My Cauliflower Tortillas are also great for tacos!
Keto Omelette Roll-Ups
These fluffy keto omelette roll-ups are filled with cream cheese, smoked salmon, and avocado for a healthy fats boost. They can be customized to suit your mood and taste.
- 4 large eggs separated
- 2 tbsp heavy cream optional (or coconut milk for a slightly sweeter option)
- 1/3 tsp salt or to taste
- 1/4 tsp black pepper cracked, or to taste
- 2 tsp ghee or butter or avocado oil (for frying)
- 2 tbsp cream cheese full fat
- 2/3 avocado sliced
- 3.5 ounces smoked salmon or 100 grams
- lettuce or micro greens (optional)
In a bowl, whisk together (using a fork or a balloon whisk) the egg yolks, optional cream, salt and pepper until combined.
Add the egg whites to a clean mixing bowl and whisk using an electric whisk until stiff peaks form. Using a spatula gently fold the egg whites through the yolks.
Melt 1 tsp of ghee (butter or avocado oil) in a 24cm non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add half the egg mixture and cook for about 2 minutes 15 seconds or until the bottom is golden brown. Flip and cook for a further 2 – 3 minutes until cooked on both sides.
Remove from the pan and allow to cool slightly to let the omelette settle and make it easier to roll. Repeat to make the second keto omelette roll up using the remaining mix.
Top each omelette roll up with cream cheese, avocado and smoked salmon, roll and slice in two. Option to slice into rounds if you prefer, like sushi!
