If you’re looking for a morning treat that’s fast, simple, and packed full of nutrition, this is the dish for you!

Eggs are a keto staple and one of the best foods you can have, period, not just at breakfast time, but any time of day. They’re a hugely rich source of protein and healthy fats while being comparatively low in calories. They’re also a powerhouse of disease-fighting nutrients, minerals, and vitamins—not to mention they’re rich, creamy, and delicious. When baked in the oven, they’ll come out beautifully soft and runny in the center. Perfection!
Avocado is another superfood must-have: this fresh and savory fruit pairs well with any meal of the day and gets the ketogenic tick of approval. It’s cholesterol-free, gluten-free, and low in sodium but high in fibers and healthy monounsaturated fats. It’s also a rich source of minerals magnesium and potassium, as well as essential vitamins C, E, and K. Research even suggests that avocado can help to reduce cardiovascular disease risk, prevent cancer, and promote weight loss.
So not only are you whipping up a flavorsome and mouthwateringly savory breakfast delight, but you’re also doing your body a big favor by providing it with a boatload of healthy nutrients. Sprinkle a little sharp white cheddar cheese over the top and season to taste with salt and fresh-ground black pepper, and you have yourself one powerful breakfast!
