Ingredients

  • 2 2 eggeggs
  • 1¼ oz. 35 g bacon, in slices
  • cherry tomatoes (optional)
  • fresh parsley (optional)

Instructions

  1. Fry the bacon in a pan on medium high heat until crispy. Put aside on a plate. Leave the rendered fat in the pan.
  2. 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 of hot grease.
  3. 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 they get cooked on top. For eggs cooked over easy — 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.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.

    I dont know how you can have a vegan version of bacon and eggs! Any thing else would be just plain different. Perhaps try green leafy green veg fried in coconut oil?

    There might be hidden carbs and wheat as a percentage of filling in the sausages if they are not completely gluten free and the highest meat content possible. I'd be inclined to use mincemeat with a mixture of steak and pork - fresh from the butcher's - or ground beef as Americans tend to call it - and be sure. But your recipe just sounds wonderful and would say very low carb as opposed to no carb but then we're not aiming for no carb! Thanks so much.

    Hi, I like to make breakfast lasagne. Omelet of two eggs, sausage in it, wrap it, cheese on top of it, love it!! Is this low carb?

    Hello everyone, I just started the Keto Diet and have been logging my foods using Livestrong's MyPlate .It is very useful as it instantly adds calories , carbs, fats, protein, etc. Does Diet Doctor offer something similar?

    Is antibiotic free bacon the same as organic bacon ? I've never seen organic bacon so I've always used the antibiotic free. I get it from Costco.

    Why does bacon have carbs but pork, not?

    Bacon generally doesn't have carbs unless there's too much sugar added during curing or if it's a maple/sugar flavored bacon. The carbs in this recipe come from the eggs. Eggs have about .6g carbs each.

    Explain how this is ketogenic and not just low carb? This meal is probably more percent protein than fat. You and 90% of other keto recipe makers are giving incorrect information. Too much protein will kick you out of ketosis. You want at least 70% fat. To make this meal keto I would suggest adding heavy cream to the eggs and scramble them. Heavy cream is about 50 calories of pure fat per tbsp, eggs are about 70 calories (close to 50/50 fat and protein). 1 tbsp heavy cream per egg should get you to near true keto. Bacon is also not true keto in terms of numbers. Sick and tired of seeing false information. I'd bet 95% of ketoers are not in ketosis and just are losing weight due to calorie deficit, but not losing the actual fat (still okay, but not the true point of attempting the diet)

    Can I scramble my eggs then cook them in the bacon fat? Or is this recipe for fried eggs?
  12. Jim Silva
    For vegans: Get Tofu Scramble (it's a mix, do a search on it) and veggie bacon bits are great or you may find it in a strip form, or there are lots of vegan sausages - Tofurkey brand has very few carbs and they are really good! Beyond Meat, Gardein, and Boca are all very good meat substitutes and low in carbs depending on the type. Don't know the carbs in TofuScramble. I'm eating free range and organic dairy while I get my carbs & sugars down, and then I'll go back to vegan carefully and see if it works. Yea vegans and people conscious enough to know it's not necessary to eat animals and cause all that suffering when there are so many other things healthier to eat:-)

    The 1.25 oz bacon for 1 serving - is that before cooked weight? Thanks...

    Recipe standard is always to list pre-cooked weight for meat.

    Yes, that's fine.

    Kirsten - I would like to understand your percentages better. For this meal you have carbs, fat, protein as 1g+22g+15g = 38g. That would be 58% fat, how do you get 75% ?

    Why does the weekly meal planner adjust number of servings of individual meals from 1-4 servings even though I have set it up for 2 people at the beginning? Am I missing something?

    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!

    I’m having a bit of a problem with portion sizes. Some are definitive (eg: 2 eggs etc) but not when it comes to nuts and seeds or snacks. Any info would be helpful. Thank you

    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.
