Ingredients

  • 1 oz. 30 g butter
  • 2 2 eggeggs
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  1. Crack the eggs into a small bowl and use a fork to whisk them together with some salt and pepper.
  2. Melt the butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Watch carefully — the butter shouldn't turn brown!
  3. Pour the eggs into the skillet and stir for 1–2 minutes, until they are creamy and cooked just shy of how you like them. Remember that the eggs will still be cooking even after you've put them on your plate.

Tip!

These fluffy eggs pair well with many low-carb favorites. Obvious choices are bacon or sausage, but other great options include salmon, avocado, cold cuts and cheese (try cheddar, fresh mozzarella or feta cheese).

And, if you are really hungry (or have extra-large eggs), don’t be shy. Add more butter!

    Is honey ok to sweeten your coffee on Keto?

    Unfortunately not as honey is too high in sugar/carbohydrates. You can see our guide to sweeteners here - https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/keto/sweeteners

    Is there any reason that Greek yogurt is not included as a breakfast alternartive? I make my own Greek yogurt from 3.25% milk and it is delicious. I eat up to half a litre a day sometimes straight; sometimes with a few berries sprinkled on top. As far as I know, it is a keto food. So why is it not recommended here? Too many carbs?

    I tried adding powdered skim milk to make the yogurt thicker, which is does, but was horrified to discover that skim milk power is 46% lactose! The yogurt comes out a bit sweet so i've quit doing that. I tried adding heavy cream to the recipe and the yogurt comes out too runny. Whole milk alone is best.

    Any info you could give on Greek yogurt would be great. I am travelling to Greece this fall and I plan to eat loads of Greek yogurt, if it is keto.

    Also, is Greek yogurt too high in protein? Should I be eating cream cheese instead? (Not the same!)

    Greek yogurt tends to be higher carb and protein without much fat. If you can find a European/Bulgarian style yogurt it tends to have better macro ratios. If you are making yogurt, try using heavy cream instead of skim milk.

    Anyone have stomach issues with all the fat you eat and not having a gallbladder? This seems to be an issue for me.

    You can ask your pharmacist to help you find digestive enzymes if the fats are a problem for you.

    You would need to check the carb count. The carbs in it come from sugar, so even if they are low, it could still adversely affect blood sugar.

    I see salmon, bacon etc. as additional options for breakfast, what about sausage. I have a butcher here who makes his own pork sausage without a lot of additives?

    As long as he is not adding sugar, sausage is a great breakfast option.

    These scrambled eggs are great. Using more butter than normal like this recipe calls for made for some perfect eggs.

    We do not have a two week egg challenge. Our free two week challenge is located at this link and is an excellent way to get started with keto.
