What’s not to love about the humble fried egg? Heat oil in a pan, crack in your eggs, season with salt and pepper, and a few minutes later, you have a piping hot tasty treat to devour! Since these fried eggs are cooked in olive oil, it’s much more keto-friendly than using other oils, so they can be enjoyed by those of us on the keto diet.
Fried eggs are perfectly accompanied by keto-friendly hash browns, spinach, turkey bacon, tomatoes, cheese, and other breakfast foods you have on hand, or you can eat them for a quick breakfast by themselves or as a snack. A couple of fried eggs make a great post-workout snack if you’re looking for a quick way to refuel.
When cooking your eggs, make sure it’s for the right amount of time. Some people like runny eggs, which take about 4-5 minutes, while some people prefer the yolks a little bit firmer, which takes about 5-6 minutes, and if you want the yolks and whites to be hard, cook them for about 6-7 minutes. If you want to flip them over, cook them on each side for half of the recommended time.
Next time you want to enjoy some fried eggs, make sure you cook them in olive oil. They taste amazing!
