We make a lot of keto egg recipes because eggs are a low-carb, healthy fat superfood loaded with essential amino acids, eggs are also affordable and easily accessible.
Eggs are one of the staples of the Keto diet. Scrambled, poached, boiled, fried, and made into omelets. There are plenty of ways that you can prepare them. Again it is worth mentioning that Organic or Free Range eggs are best.
Rarely a day goes by that I don’t have eggs. Packed with protein and incredibly versatile, eggs are my idea of a true superfood.
But don’t take my word for it – experts agree!
Eating Scrambled eggs with green vegetables is a great way to get some extra nutrition in at breakfast. It also removes the bread carbs from the equation.
Either add spinach or asparagus with grass-fed butter. I also like to add some homemade salsa to spice things up and add a hint of fresh citrus. A great combo!
It is good to remember that butter and also cheese are allowed on the Keto Diet. Adding a sprinkle of cheese and cooking in butter adds flavor and satisfies without the need for bready carbs. Make a veggie scramble and top with cheese for a nutritious and satisfying breakfast.
The great thing about poaching eggs is that they are the most nutritious way to eat them. Fried eggs have been frowned upon by Keto purists because frying them cooks the eggs at too high a temperature, much like barbequed meats.
Serving the eggs on a bed of spinach with some smoked salmon is an excellent way to avoid the carbs in the muffin regularly served up as with them as ‘Eggs Benedict’. Go for the ‘Florentine’ version and leave out the muffin! They are also very good served on a bed of fresh steamed asparagus with a few spoonfuls of fresh salsa sprinkled on top!
Keto Bacon, Mushroom, and Avocado Omelette Recipe
Ingredients: Olive oil, bacon, mushrooms, avocado, eggs, unsweetened almond milk, fresh chives.
Skip expensive restaurant omelets and make your restaurant-quality at home. Plus, the best thing about this recipe is that you can fill the omelet with any ingredient that you like. Ham, sauteed spinach, Keto cauliflower “cheese” or even Keto basil pesto is great filling options.
Boiled eggs are sliced in half, remove from the yolks, and filled with a delicious mix of mayonnaise, mustard, dill, salt, pepper, freshly grated cheddar, and crispy, crumbled bacon. A serving contains only 1 gram of net carbs.
Omelets are a great way to eat eggs not just at breakfast but for dinner too! They are versatile. They can include vegetables, cheese, ham, or any combination of all of those things.
A great little trick that I learned early on in my Keto journey was to batch cook some mini omelets. These can be kept in the fridge and heated quickly each morning. Using a cupcake tin or muffin tin creates the perfect size mini omelet. Just whisk eggs, add fillings and cook in the oven, remembering to oil the tin first.
Sauces Using Eggs
Eggs are used for many delicious sauces that can be incorporated into the keto diet plan. One of my personal favorites as I have mentioned earlier is Hollandaise sauce. I love to eat it with salmon and asparagus. It can dress up many green vegetables. Homemade mayonnaise is another staple, from which Caesar Salad dressing can be made and which is another easy meal in the keto world. Keto custard is another option if you are having a weekend treat.
Egg Drop Soup
The last yummy and keto-friendly egg dish on the list is egg rolls in an egg drop soup made from eggs, chicken broth, liquid aminos, ground ginger, garlic powder, and sesame oil.
