A lettuce wrap is a great low-carb breakfast option. Since I was craving a lettuce wrap this morning, I came up with an interesting idea. Why not create a wrap with egg, cheese dog, and mushroom? I thought the end result was delicious, and I hope you will try it, too.

        Hi Liz,

        I'm not that health conscious when it comes to food but as much as I could, I always try to balance my diet. I don't take any supplements that's why I need to get whatever nutrients I can from foods.

        Great idea. I especially like the idea of usinv lettuce as the wrap. It makes for a healthier wrap.

        Hello Peggy,

        I agree with you 100%. Ham would be a perfect substitute to hotdogs. I will surely try it next time. Cheers!

        I think that I would substitute pieces of ham for the hotdogs, but this is a great idea. Gives a whole new meaning to an easy breakfast wrap.

        Hello Debbie,

        I agree with you. It's better to eat eggs with lettuce leaves than with slices of bread. I actually enjoyed this recipe!

        Hi Eric,

        Your idea for wrap tacos is great! You can make use of iceberg lettuce on this so you won't end up falling everything apart. I also like Nem Nuong! I might try making my own version of it in the future. Have a wonderful weekend!

        I am all on board with this. We will have breakfast wraps and Bánh mì for our Sunday brunch tomorrow. I will add your egg and go with a Nem Nuong.

        I was just thinking I could make a taco in this idea also.
