You all know I eat egg whites almost daily. It’s the perfect low calorie, high protein food. Plus, there are so many different ways I’ve found to prepare them, including this layered egg white and veggie idea!

This idea came to me when I wanted to make a low-carb, gluten free version of the TikTok Tortilla hack. I wanted to make the same type of meal, but with egg whites only.

To make this folded egg white, simply pour 1/2 cup of egg whites into a well greased skillet. Get the egg whites all the way to the edge. If your skillet is non-stick, this will be so much easier.

Once the bottom is cooked, I flip the egg white to cook the reverse side. It can act like a tortilla now, with both sides cooked.

From here, fill your toppings into 3 of the four quarters of your circle. I have been using the Sargento thin sliced cheese for EVERYTHING! It’s regular cheese, but sliced thin enough that it’s half the calories! Usually 45 or 50 calories, depending on which type of cheese you get.

I also sliced some avocado, and precooked some peppers and mushrooms.

Then, fold each quarter over the next, keeping in the fillings. I made a video and put it in the recipe card below for an example! CHECK IT OUT!!
