Keto Italian “Sub” w/ Lettuce Wrap

Does an Italian sub really have a recipe? Well, now it has a keto recipe, even if it’s a hacky one.

I love lettuce wraps, and after a very short while it’s hard to miss bread. The only time I truly miss it is with hotdogs and hamburgers but over time even those get easy to take in a properly made lettuce bun.

Yesterday I had one filled with cheese, tuna salad and mustard for a few net carbs.

Today I wanted to mash all the cold cuts and salamis I had in the fridge into a tasty keto Italian sub wrap, and so I did. Although I’m sure it would have been even better with the proper meats. I’ve also done it with real Italian meats and more salami, so consider those when you decide to make it!

Notes: Feel free to do the inverted wrap too if you’re out of lettuce or simply don’t have big enough leaves as I did here with some rosemary ham, muenster cheese, mustard, and arugula. Ham is always such a pain to wrap, though.
