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.
Scrambled eggs require only 3 ingredients. All you need to make plain scrambled eggs are:
- Large eggs – I like to use free-range eggs size 7 in New Zealand called large eggs in the US. Eggs are very much keto-friendly!
- Salt & pepper
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!

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.
delicious, with added finely chopped basil, yum!
This was amazing!!I’ve just started keto so this was perfect for my first breakfast on the diet, so delicious ❤
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!
I love arugula ! Great idea 🙂 Have a lovely Valentine’s day. XOXO Carine
