The Best Egg & Lettuce Sandwiches

What is the best lettuce to make this Low-carb Lettuce Wrap Sandwich?

I’ve made this wrap sandwich with lots of different types of lettuces and for this reason I can say that all green lettuces will work such as romaine lettuce, collard and kale (without the stems), butter lettuce and Iceberg lettuce. But I think the Iceberg lettuce is the best.

In my opinion, the Iceberg holds well, it’s crunchy and crispy and it’s not very tough to eat raw like kale or collards are.

Sandwich Decoration Ideas For Kids

No matter how tasty sandwich is, you cannot make your kids eat it unless you make it look appealing. Decorating sandwiches can seem like a task, but it needn’t be. We have a few easy sandwich decoration ideas you can try to make food more likable by kids.

  1. Make a simple face on the sandwich using marinara sauce or even ketchup.
  2. If you are making an open face sandwich, arrange the toppings to make a smiley face. For example, you can use olives or raisins for eyes, carrot sticks as nose, and a cherry or strawberry for the mouth or lips.
  3. An easy way to make sandwiches interesting is to use a shape-sandwich cutter to create uniquely shaped sandwiches your child would like. You can also hand-carve simple shapes like a plane, a star, or a heart using a knife.
  4. When making a cream cheese cucumber sandwich, you could place the cucumber slices on the sides, like ears, and throw in olives for eyes and nose.
  5. Try to use different fruits instead of one variety in a sandwich. That makes the sandwich more colorful.

Sandwich decoration need not take extra time or money. All you need to do is use whatever fillings you have in a creative way.

21. Easy Egg Wraps for Breakfast

While the word ‘breakfast’ is in the name, these egg wraps make for the perfect little snack any time of day.

Since these wraps are packed with protein, they’re the perfect snack for your growing kids or anyone in your family who’s trying to add a little more nutrition to their diet.

It’s hard to pin down just one secret ingredient because these can be packed with any filling or seasoning you like.

Our favorites include turkey, sour cream, basil, and paprika. The secret ingredient is whatever you deem to be, as the eggs provide the base. Either way, it’s a recipe you and everyone in your family will love.

Storage Tips

This lettuce wrap is best enjoyed fresh. You can make this the night before for lunch the next day if you wish. I recommend making it as close to eating as possible as the lettuce can wilt after a while as it has mayo and mustard on it. It’s similar to how you shouldn’t add dressing to a salad if you are making it ahead of time. This is not a freezer friendly recipe due to the lettuce so I do not recommend freezing it.

Quinoa is jam-packed with protein and a lot of other good nutrients, so it’s perfect for energizing you when that 2:00 pm slump occurs.
