This recipe has been added to the shopping list.

Instructions

  1. Heat butter or coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Crack your eggs straight into the pan. You can also crack them into a measuring cup and carefully pour into the pan to avoid splattering of hot grease. For eggs 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.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve with some leafy greens.

Tip

Serve with a dollop of homemade mayonnaise and fresh herbs! Perfection!

    I love fried eggs on a bed of fried cabbage and onions.

    Bacon and eggs are the nutritional equivalent of siamese twins with no chance of separation. Why replace bacon with green stuff? That's like taking Bruce Dickinson out of Iron Maiden and plopping Justin Bieber in his place. :-)

    This gives me a confusing message since reading, carefully, your article on protein http://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb-high-fat-not-protein.

    "Note

    The nutritional facts (press “strict low carb” above) are based on the eggs and the optional cheese."

    I don't see any mention of cheese in the recipe?

    When I change the person count from the default of 4 to 1, how do I save that to go onto the next meal selection when planning my week?

    Yes, egg whites are fine. Just make sure the meal has added fats as well.

    Yes, just keep an eye on the carb count in the cream.

    Is there total carbs listed in the nutrition area?

    Our recipes list net carbs, but if you click the nutrition+ tab under the list of ingredients, you can also see the fiber amount which you can add to the carb count to get total carbs. In this recipe, there is no fiber, so total carbs is also 1g.

    It says breakfast-fried eggs and shows 2 fried eggs. The serving size says 4. Is that eight eggs I need to eat or two eggs? thank you.

    That 4 is the number of servings. So, 8 eggs at 4 servings = 2 eggs per plate.

    Hi, My servings say 2 but it says 6 eggs. This is only for me. Does this mean I eat 6 fried eggs for one breakfast?

    1 serving is intended to be 1 meal for 1 person. This makes 2 servings as written, which means 3 eggs per meal per person.

    Just to be clear: eggs have 0 fiber so the 1 total carb is from the leafy greens? I used spinach, placed in the pan over the eggs to wilt a bit just a minute or so before the eggs were cooked. Delish!

    This is 2g total carbs - 1g fiber and 1g net carbs and yes, that's for the leafy greens.
