Spinach and Cheddar Scrambled Eggs

Keto Recipes > Keto Breakfast Recipes

This is a breakfast staple for me, where it’s my go-to a lot of the time. It’s fast (only takes about 10 minutes), tastes great, and it’s packed full of nutrients.

These eggs will usually fill me up until around 1pm, and sometimes even longer. They’re a great source of energy in the morning and keep you full for a good chunk of the day. If you’re the type that has problems with hunger around 11, try these! The fats in the cheese and cream will be sure to help your stomach stay quiet until lunch time.

If needed, you can sub out the olive oil for coconut oil if you’re wanting MCT oil.

It might look like the eggs are a little undercooked, but as they are resting, the eggs will cook through. If you need to up the fat content, you can add some ranch to these – it’s fantastic.
