This keto breakfast omelet is one of my favorite breakfasts to have on the days I want to enjoy ketosis. This omelet has a total of 8 grams of net carbs and tastes amazing. I could just fry 3 eggs in a pan with some butter, and that’s great if you’re in a hurry and need a quick breakfast. But I’m a foodie and adding in some extra’s makes all the difference in taste and nutritional value as well.
For the ingredients
Ghee: I used ghee in this recipe to fry the omelet in, but you can also use any other healthy fat to fry this omelet with. Some healthy fats would include coconut oil, avocado oil, butter, duck fat, or beef tallow.
The vegetables: I love the combination of yellow bell pepper with onion, garlic, and eggs. But you can easily add in more keto-friendly vegetables if you like. Spinach, mushrooms, or tomatoes are just some examples.
The spices: In this recipe, I kept it simple and stuck to just some sea salt and black pepper.
Mozzarella: I used some shredded mozzarella, but you can use any of your preferred cheese.
