Tips for Best Results
Just like any other recipe, there are always some tips you can use in your cooking for best results!
Invest in a nonstick skillet, and thank me later. It’s a valuable kitchenware that will surely make cooking easier. No more sticking or scrapping leftovers from the bottom of the pan!
A nonstick skillet will help you cook meals like a Micheline Star chef. Preparing egg rolls, scrambled eggs, or even French crepes have never been easier.
Once done, you just flip, slip, and roll the wrap in a plate.
Larger Egg Wraps
Use a larger pan for larger portions. If you’re running late or running on low energy, a large pan can save up your efforts. Instead of making 5 small egg wraps for example, you can simply prepare 2 large ones using a larger pan.
Less work, same satisfaction!
Be generous when it comes to spices. They will elevate your wraps to a whole new level. After all, spices are all about enhancing flavors and taste.
Therefore, make sure you add spices to that egg mixture, otherwise your wraps will have a neutral flavor.
Butter your pan. This one is optional; a buttered pan will add a rich thick taste to your low carb egg wraps.
That’s all I have to say! You can imagine the richness.
Sauces and Dips
Prepare a batch of your favorite sauce or dip. No wrap, sub, or sandwich is ever complete without a sauce on the side.
You can search for keto-friendly sauces as well to maintain a healthy diet. Enhance the tenderness and indulge in a delicious journey!
White and Yolk Separation
Separate the egg yolk from the white for a healthier option. But if you like your eggs whole, go for it!
Be gentle when making the rolls. Egg rolls are delicate and can crumble in the matter of seconds. So, be patient and don’t over stuff them.
Substitute any ingredient you want in case it wasn’t available. For instance, you can use millet flour, flour tortilla, brown rice flour. You might as well add a splash of milk to the mix.
As long as they’re suitable, of course.
