As promised, I made and will now share a recipe for a lo-carb wrap. First, I need to change the name of the item to a lo-carb pancake. I’m not sure that I could get this item thin enough to use as a wrap. However, it is firm enough to use as a sandwich, if you don’t mind round sandwiches.
4 ounces plain pork rinds
1/8 t baking soda
1/4 t salt (optional)
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
6 large eggs or 3 whole eggs along with 3 egg whites and 2 T oil
1/2 cup water
This worked amazingly well in my Ninja chopper. So step one is to pulverize the pork rinds. Add the baking soda and give it another twirl to blend it in.
Add the eggs and cheese and continue to blend the mixture until smooth. Finally, mix in the 1/2 cup of water. I omitted the optional salt. Pour the mixture into a bowl and allow it to rest for 10 minutes while you have another cup of coffee.
Begin to heat a griddle to a medium heat at the 5 minute mark. I am blessed to have that built in center griddle on my stove. Life is good!
I was going to insert a picture of the batter in the bowl but it looks rather disgusting. How’s this instead?

Have a spoon in a cup of water handy when it’s time to cook the batter. Also have a 1/4 cup measure handy.
Portion out 1/4 cup of the batter onto the griddle. Use the spoon that’s been in the water to smooth out the batter. You’re going for a 5-inch circle that’s thinnish. Cook until it bubbles, flip it, and cook it about another minute. Set the finished cakes on a rack to cool.
The option in the recipe to use the egg whites in place of only whole eggs will give your creation less of an eggy taste. I’m going to try that version next. Just to ease your mind, there is no pork rind taste. I’m also thinking of adding other favors, such as onion and/or dill. How about rosemary?
An amazing lo-carb “wrap” as the base of a bacon cheese burger!
Because of my husband’s episode (fainting etc) along with his need to eat extremely lo-carb, these are going to be wonderful in all sorts of great, culinary creations. I have my work cut out for me, don’t I!
