This recipes didn’t turn out the way I planned. I had wanted to make an egg roll out of deli meat, cheeses and veggies. I thought it would be fun and cute looking.
Well it’s not as easy as it sounds and I ended up with these keto lunch meat wraps. Turns out they were super easy and fun to make and absolutely delicious! They really are like a delicious sandwich or wrap without the bread and they take minutes to make.
I know it’s just meat and cheese rolled up but it’s the contents that make it most delicious. And they are perfect for a high protein low carb snack, quick lunch or even a dinner. My husband loved them as much as I did.
Let’s talk about healthy lunch meat.
Lunch meat can be full of salt and nitrates and all kind of yucky stuff. So when ever possible I make my own lunch meat. I have a whole post if you are interested.
A while back I bought a meat slicer like this so we could make our own lunch meat. Part of the problem when you make healthy meat roasts is slicing it thin enough to use on sandwiches or meat rollups like these. So the slicer is very helpful.
We’ve also use the slicer to slice pepperoni thinly and ham etc.
So if you want the healthiest lunch meat try to make your own. If you don’t have the time, I understand. You can try brands like Applegate Farms and even Aldi has a Never Any brand that doesn’t have any nitrates and other things in their lunchmeat.
For this post I just went to the deli counter and looked for the largest pieces of deli meat I could find because I originally wanted to make egg rolls out of these.
The 3 keto lunch meat wraps I made today.
There are so many combinations you can make with these lunch meat wraps. The biggest and tastiest one I made is down in the recipe card below but it was a take on a Chef Salad.
The simple ingredients I used were ham, turkey, cheddar, Swiss, slices of crispy bacon, peppers, red onions, baby greens and a little ranch dressing. It was yummy!
For my hubby we made a roast beef, cheddar, peppers, baby greens and a good grainy mustard. My second favorite was a turkey, bacon and avocado wrap.
Below I have listed the approximate net carbs for some of the fixings I used. For the deli meat I used the Dietz & Watson brand on my Lose It app.
Please check with your own food tracker first as listings vary from app to app. These are just some ideas for you to see what your can put on your wraps.
Another way to eat these meat rollups.
If you are a big salad fan like me you can also take these ideas and make salad bowls. Just fill a bowl with lettuce, chop the lunch meat and your favorite cheese into pieces, add the other fixings you like and top with salad dressing.
