Easy Keto Breakfast Recipe
Have you ever wondered how to make an omelette with cheese?
It’s such an easy keto breakfast meal! The ooey-gooey melted cheese is a special treat you don’t want to miss.
Once you learn how to make a classic three-cheese omelette, you can modify the basic steps by adding in any of your favorite ingredients. Omelettes are an excellent opportunity to clean out the fridge. So go ahead and grab your leftovers, chop them up and fold them in.
My family eats omelettes all the time because they are quick meals for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You can’t ever go wrong.
How to Make a Cheese Omelette
Feel free to get creative by adding your favorite herbs and spices or low-carb vegetables. This low-carb recipe is a nice starting base for you to expand. It also goes great with Tomatillo Avocado Salsa and Homemade Raw Sauerkraut.
I cook in butter, but you can also use olive oil or coconut oil if you prefer.
Butter – Choose grass-fed butter, if you can
Eggs – Opt for free-range, pastured eggs or raise them yourself!
Cheddar – Adds a sharp flavor
Mozzarella – You want to use cheeses that melt well
Parmesan – Finish the cheese combo off with a matured aged cheese
Salt & pepper – Use to taste. These are my favorite types of gourmet salt.
Warm the butter over medium-high heat in a skillet or frying pan.
Crack the eggs in a bowl and whisk them until smooth. Mix in half the total amount of shredded cheese, plus salt and pepper to taste.
Pour eggs in the pan once it is warm. Let sit for 2 minutes until edges cook and eggs start to set.
Lower the heat until egg is almost cooked through. Add the remaining cheese down the center of the omelette. Keep the heat low so you don’t overcook the cheese omelette. The low temperature will prevent finishing with a dry, crispy edge.
Use a spatula and fold the omelette in thirds by bringing the two sides to the center.
Remove from heat and serve hot. If you prefer a well-cooked finish, flip the folded omelette over and continue cooking to your liking.
For a perfect pairing, serve with our Tibetan Butter Tea Recipe.
