What Are Scrambled Eggs?

Scrambled eggs are fulfilling pieces of fluffy eggs that can be served on a piece of keto bread or on their own with avocado, tomatoes, or bacon.

The particularity of scrambled eggs is the cooking method.

In fact, they are cooked under low heat and broken up in butter. It results in soft, runny, and fluffy loose eggs that are absolutely delicious for breakfast.

Are Eggs keto?

Eggs are truly excellent keto-friendly goods. One egg has only 0.3-0.7 grams of carbs depending on its size, but 5 to 12 grams of fat and 4 to 9 grams of protein.

So it is very good if you are on a low carb diet or keto diet, in particular, if you are working out and need a few extra proteins!

How To Make Keto Scrambled Eggs

Keto breakfasts often include eggs and if you are bored of fried eggs or omelettes, let me introduce you to keto scrambled eggs.

Ingredients

Scrambled eggs require only 3 ingredients. All you need to make plain scrambled eggs are:

Should I add cream or milk to scrambled eggs?

That is a big question when it comes to scrambled eggs. I believe you shouldn’t add any milk or cream to your scrambled eggs.

First, it would dilute the eggs creating a sort of mashy egg with no egg flavor.

Next, it discolors the scrambled eggs into a white-ish unappealing color.

Finally, it won’t make the eggs fluffier, simply less flavorsome and runnier. This being said, if you love your scrambled eggs with a lighter egg flavor or a bit mushier (we all have different tastes!), go for it.

In this case, I would recommend adding 3 tablespoons of heavy cream to the beaten eggs.

Avocado Scrambled Eggs

There are many different ways to serve scrambled eggs, but avocado scrambled eggs are my favorite.

In fact, the combo of warm, soft eggs with fresh avocado is absolutely amazing.

Bonus, add a touch of tomatoes and chives on top, and you will have a restaurant-style keto breakfast ready in 15 minutes at home.

This will bring the total net carbs of this keto egg recipe to 3.4 grams per serving but it’s totally worth it!

Instructions

  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk eggs with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat with butter.
  • When the butter has just melted (not brown) pour in the beaten eggs, layer cheese on top, and reduce to medium heat.
  • Let the eggs cook for 30 seconds (no stirring!), then gently move a spatula across the bottom and side of the skillet to break up the eggs and form a soft egg curd.
  • Stop stirring and cook again for 15 seconds to set.
  • Repeat this process of stirring and cooking until the eggs thickened, slightly set but still soft and runny in some places.
  • Serve immediately on a slice of a keto bread loaf or on its own with diced avocado, diced tomatoes, and chives. Feel free to add other toppings like crispy bacon, sour cream, or fried mushrooms.

    5 Thoughts On Keto Scrambled Eggs with Avocado – 1.5 g Net Carbs
  1. 4 stars
    1/4 Parmesan was a lot of cheese for two eggs, but still was good overall! I added avocado and tomatoes as recommended, and a side of bacon.

  2. 5 stars
    You inspired me! I happened on your recipe this morning just as I was trying to decide what to make for our Valentines Day breakfast. The only change I made was adding a sprinkle of fresh baby arugula. Delicious!
