Keto Cream Cheese Egg Rolls w Shrimp

Put a little creativity into your breakfast with this egg roll inspired by cream cheese sushi rolls at your favorite American sushi joint. If you like having your protein in the morning and spending the rest of your meals focused on high fat and low carbs, this is a great recipe for you to try. A fluffy egg omelet is filled with warm cream cheese and lightly grilled chopped shrimp. There are multiple points in the recipe to include extra seasonings or your own favorite flavors to pair with shrimp. If you’re looking for ideas, you can continue reading below for some suggestions. Although this Keto recipe is listed under breakfasts on Carb Manager, you can also enjoy the egg roll as a mid-day snack. After preparing the meal, you may also cool the recipe to store in meal prep containers. Simply microwave to re-heat and enjoy while you’re at work or to simply make your life a little easier.

Suggestions For Extra Toppings

There are many delicious Keto ingredients you can add to your egg roll. After spreading the cream cheese across your omelet, you can add condiments like Sriracha or spicy mayo. To make your own spicy mayo, simply stir together mayonnaise with Sriracha, hot sauce, or cayenne pepper. Sesame seeds, green onion, or garlic are all great garnishes to include with the recipe. To keep the sushi-inspiration strong, add a layer of roasted seaweed (also called nori) before rolling up the egg roll. Nori is very Keto and is believed by some to have many health benefits.

Tips For Cooking The Omelet

The first time you make this Keto recipe, you’ll want to avoid burning your omelet. When cooking the egg in Step 3, “low and slow” is the phrase you should remind yourself of often. Use a lid over your omelet to help trap heat and cook it evenly throughout. To help the egg cook faster before it burns, you can pierce some holes in the omelet so any uncooked yolk can reach the bottom of your pan to cook faster. Speaking of pans, using a non-stick pan is essential! Pan spray on a regular pan will not give you the same result. If you have a cast-iron pan, this will be your best option for even cooking and a yellow omelet instead of a browned one.

Recipe Steps

steps 5

25 min

  • Step 1

    Peel and devein jumbo shrimp, and pat them dry with a paper towel. Toss the shrimp in a bowl with one pinch each of the following spices: salt, pepper, cayenne, paprika, and sesame seeds. However, you are welcome to season the shrimp to your liking. Meanwhile, melt the first amount of butter in a small non-stick pan or cast-iron skillet over medium heat.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    When the butter is hot, place the shrimp in the pan. Cook the shrimp for just 2-3 minutes on each side. You want the shrimp just cooked through and lightly grilled spices on the outside. When done, chop the cooked shrimp and set them aside for later. In a clean mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, and salt. Wipe the pan you used clean and melt the second amount of butter over a low heat setting on the stove.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Pour the egg mixture into the hot butter. Leave the eggs undisturbed as they cook into an omelet. You can place a lid over the pan to help you cook. It may take up to 5 minutes or longer for the egg to cook through. Adjust the heat as necessary to avoid burning. When the egg omelet is cooked, slide it out onto a sheet of parchment paper to cool slightly. Microwave the cream cheese until it is soft. Then, spread the cream cheese over the top of the omelet.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    At your discretion, you may add any additional spices or condiments over the cream cheese. In this recipe, Sriracha was added optionally. Arrange the chopped shrimp in a horizontal edge on one side of the omelet, as if you were preparing sushi. Use the parchment paper to lift that end of the omelet and fold it over the shrimp. Gently continue rolling the egg until you have a fat “sushi” roll.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Slice the egg roll into 4-6 pieces. Again, at your discretion, you can add any toppings you would enjoy. Here, this roll was garnished with extra Sriracha, sesame seeds, and chopped green onion. Serve the roll either as a warm breakfast or you can refrigerate the pieces and enjoy them as a cold snack.
