Mini Keto Breakfast Burrito Wraps Recipe
Who needs tortillas? This mini keto breakfast burrito wraps recipe will put you in a great mood and energize the first half of your day!
How to Make Keto Burritos
Use your imagination! There is no shortage of ways to substitute a traditional flour tortilla. There is lettuce, wraps made from alternative flours such as almond flour, and, in this case, deli meat.
It just so happens that thinly sliced meat makes a convenient and tasty container for the rest of your ingredients in these wraps.
Eggs make up the bulk of the filling. What you mingle with the eggs is up to you, but there are some combos I particularly like.
You can never go wrong with bacon, so that was at the top of my list.
Moving on, I also added some color from the garden – green bell pepper, onion, shallots, and tomato.
Sliced avocado adds some creaminess and healthy fat, which helps to keep you in ketosis.
I used ham and roast beef to contain these wraps, but you can use whichever thin-sliced deli meat you prefer.
Make Them Ahead
Not every breakfast meal keeps well. Fortunately, these breakfast wraps are just as tasty after they’ve spent time in the refrigerator.
They taste delicious whether they’re warm or cold. Just make sure you cover them before tucking them into the fridge for the night.
You can double up on the recipe if you want to make enough to last for a couple days.
Meat on Keto
This recipe includes meat, which is common for keto. While it’s a great source of protein, when I first started keto I wondered how much meat is too much.
After all, there has to be an upper limit, right?
Rather than fretting about your meat-eating threshold, you can do some math to figure out how much you need as an individual.
This keto calculator is a handy tool to help you figure it out. Most people need between 90-120 g of protein per day.
Keep track of everything you eat for a week or two and see where you fall. From there you can easily adjust how much protein you’re eating to make sure your body is getting what it needs
