Classic bacon and eggs
- 8 8 large egglarge eggs
- 9 oz. 260 g bacon, in slices
- cherry tomatoes (optional)
- fresh thyme (optional)
- Fry the bacon in a pan over medium high heat until crispy. Put aside on a plate. Leave the rendered fat in the pan.
- Use the same pan to fry the eggs. Place it over medium heat and crack your eggs into the bacon grease. You can also crack them into a measuring cup and carefully pour into the pan to avoid splattering.
- Cook the eggs any way you like them. For sunny side up — leave the eggs to fry on one side and cover the pan with a lid to make sure the yolks cook too. For over-easy eggs — flip the eggs over after a few minutes and cook for another minute. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and fry them at the same time.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Is bacon keto?
If you’ve been asking —is bacon keto, we’re here to tell you, yes! Among other pork products, bacon is high in fat, making it the ideal candidate for a keto-friendly, low carb breakfast. Make sure that the bacon you choose does not have added sugars or additives. Organic bacon is a good choice if you can find it.
Net carbs: 2 % (1 g)
Fiber: 0 g
Fat: 75 % (22 g)

Recipe standard is always to list pre-cooked weight for meat.
Yes, that's fine.
The setting at the beginning is to adjust the shopping list. When you click through from the meal planner or challenge, it takes you to the original recipe page.
You don't add anything to fry the bacon in. It renders out its own fat, which is more than enough!
Most packages of seeds or nuts will have the nutrition information and serving size on the package. We also have many visual guides that may give the information you're looking for.
Most people would probably have water, tea, or coffee. Check out our Keto drinks guide! https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/keto/drinks
The eggs are 5g/6% fat and 6g/12% protein. The bacon is 3.5g/5% fat and 2.9g/5%.
How am I supposed to calculate this?
I'm not sure what you're asking. The nutrition facts are provided on the recipe. They're listed below the ingredients.
You may use the meat of your choice, but may need to add a bit more fat if you choose a lean meat.
This meal can be eaten at any time of day. No matter when you choose to break your fast, you can enjoy bacon and eggs! :)
Seed Bread would be my preferred option https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/soft-keto-seed-bread but Mug Bread is also a good option https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/low-carb-mug-bread
Could you please explain how you've calculated 75%, 23% and 2% please, as I haven't figured it out yet.
The macro percentages are based on calories for each macronutrient. Fat contains 9 calories per gram of fat, carbohydrates and protein have 4 calories per gram.
The tomatoes used in this serving suggestion are the little grape/cherry tomatoes. Tomatoes have about 3g net carbs per 100g of tomato.
nutrition as per above:
Net carbs: 1 % (1 g) WRONG ACTUALLY 2%
Fat: 78 % (32 g) WRONG ACTUALLY 60%
Protein: 21 % (20 g) WRONG ACTUALLY 38%
How can you have made such a big error on this and every other recipe i have looked at in this guide.
with these percentages above it will likely knock you out of keto. Beware. Do the maths yourselves as a precaution.
Ian, the percentages are the percent of calories from each macronutrient. Fat has 9 calories per gram while protein and carbohydrates have 4 calories per gram. In this recipe, there are 288 calories from fat (9x32) and 84 calories from protien and carbohydrates [(1+20)X4] for 372 total calories. This gives 78% of the calories (288/372) from fat and 22% of calories from protein and carbohydrates. I hope this helps.
