DIY Cheese Wraps


Need a low-carb wrap option for your brown bag lunch? Here's your new go-to. Cheese wraps can be customized in tons of flavor varieties and filled like you would any tortilla.

Total Time:
10 mins


  • 8 0.75 ounce slices desired cheese, such as mozzarella, provolone, cheddar, or Swiss

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (optional)

  • teaspoon desired dried herb, such as Italian seasoning or oregano, or 1/8 teaspoon desired spice, such as smoked paprika or chili powder (optional)


  1. For each wrap, cut a 15x11-inch piece of parchment paper. Cut in half crosswise. On one piece of parchment lay one slice of cheese. Tear another cheese slice into four equal pieces and arrange around cheese on paper without overlapping. Sprinkle with pepper and herb or spice, if desired. Cover with remaining parchment. Microwave on 100% power (high) for 15 seconds. Remove from microwave. Without uncovering cheese, use your fingers to press from the center outward to form a 7-inch circle of cheese (make sure to fill in any gaps that show through the paper). Place covered cheese in the freezer for 2 to 3 minutes or until firm. Peel cheese wrap from paper. Repeat with remaining cheese slices and additional parchment.
