Keto Breakfast Recipes with Eggs
When in doubt, I turn to baked egg dishes for filling my printable keto meal planner
Dump your favorite meat, herbs, and veggies in a bowl of whisked eggs. There are so many yummy variations to try; your options are basically endless.
Eggs are a nutrient-dense yet affordable base that children love too! If you’re anything like me, you can always use more family-friendly recipes.
This easy keto frittata and keto breakfast casserole are examples of other keto breakfast recipes with eggs I make all the time.
Not only are they quick and easy, but leftovers are good cold! You don’t even need to warm them up before eating if you don’t want to.
How to Make a Baked Omelette Recipe
Gather 5 ingredients, plus a pinch of salt, and you’re already halfway to making a baked omelette in just 10 minutes!
This oven-fresh approach is a fun spin on the stove-top method of cooking omelettes. If you want to learn about the traditional style, review how to make a keto omelette.
Eggs – Opt for free-range, pastured eggs or get them from your own backyard hens!
Heavy cream – No fear of calories here, we need these healthy animal fats to thrive on a keto diet!
Salt – Just a pinch to season the whole dish. I have a fun time trying different types of gourmet salt.
Sausage – Use bulk sausage or pre-cooked breakfast sausage. They are both delicious! All types of meat will work. Choose pork, beef, chicken, or turkey.
Shredded cheese – I use shredded mozzarella cheese. You can do the same or swap in cheddar, Colby jack, or another type that melts well.
Parsley – Fresh parsley add a touch of color and savory flavor. You may substitute with 1 tablespoon dried parsley if desired.
Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (177°C).
Next, grab a bowl and whisk the eggs. Add cream and salt, mix well.
Then, remove the sausage from the casing or slice it into small pieces. Brown the meat in a skillet and add to the eggs once cooked. Stir in the shredded cheese and minced parsley.
Now, pour the mixture into a greased 8×8-inch baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. You know it’s done when the eggs are cooked through, the top is golden brown, and all the cheese melts!
Finally, cool slightly before cutting into portions. Serve warm and save leftovers for lunch the next day.
This one sure is! Each serving of this recipe has 26 grams of protein from the eggs, cream, sausage, and cheese. In general, omelet macros will vary due to the ingredients used.
All meat is either very low in carbohydrate or completely zero carb. Beef, pork, and chicken are all great staples for a low-carb diet!
A ketogenic metabolism is scientifically proven to be an excellent fat loss strategy. In this context, omelettes are a very suitable breakfast and will assist you in reaching your body composition goals.
