Ingredients

  • 6 oz. 175 g bacon
  • 2 2 avocadoavocados
  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 4 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 oz. 30 g lettuce, shredded

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Fry the bacon in a skillet on high heat until crispy. Chop into small pieces. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  3. Cut avocados in half and remove pit. Remove some of the flesh to enlarge the hole on each half, as needed, so that a whole egg will fit without spilling over.
  4. Place avocado halves on a baking sheet and crack an egg into each avocado hole. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top.
  5. Top the eggs with quartered tomatoes then sprinkle bacon pieces.
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the egg white is fully cooked and yolk is cooked to desired doneness.
  7. Remove from oven and serve the baked avocado eggs topped with the shredded lettuce.

Tip!

Having the bacon pre-cooked and chopped speeds the preparation.

Grated and melted cheese on top of the eggs when baking can make a nice addition.

Instead of lettuce, feel free to garnish with chopped cilantro, arugula or Italian parsley, as desired.

Keto: Budget-friendly #3

Keto doesn’t have to be expensive. With a little planning and know-how, you can be both keto and thrifty! This week we’ve focused on cheaper yet still very tasty ingredients. We also use the same ingredients in more than one meal so you can buy them in bulk.

To cut your costs even more, buy regular cheese, especially on sale, rather than specialty cheeses that are much more pricey. Don’t buy pre-­shredded cheese; buy cheese in large or bulk sizes and shred/grate it yourself.  Shredded cheese can be frozen in small batches for quick use and no risk of spoilage. Use fresh vegetables when they are in season, but buy frozen the rest of the year. Frozen meats, too, are usually cheaper. Here you’ll find more money saving low-carb tips.

A tip to save some precious morning time is to prepare the Keto eggs on the go on the Sunday afternoon or on the Monday morning, and then have them ready for a fast breakfast each day of the week.

This meal plan will keep you below 18 net carbs per day.
