Keto Salmon Eggs Benedict

This is a mighty big breakfast where each serving is exactly as pictured: two halves of the toasted Keto Breakfast Muffins recipe, topped with smoked salmon and two perfectly poached eggs, then the whole lot is smothered in Keto Hollandaise Sauce. A ‘keto salmon eggs benedict’, I called it. As the pic shows, its a generous meal (at only 3g carbs!) and good enough any time of the day, so tuck in!

Spring Onion Scramblies

Spring Onion Scramblies

Some inspiration may be needed after a while of wolfing down eggs on keto. I can hardly call this a ‘recipe’, as its merely an idea to make your scrambled eggs a little interesting (and I took the liberty of calculating the macros for you). I made this for myself one night when Funnyman was away and I was in no mood to cook. The stir-fried spring onions bring a lovely sweetness to the scrambled eggs: they are flash-fried until bright green and partially caramelised before the eggs are added. This is a great way to pimp your scramblies…! (And fab served on a slice of toasted Quick Keto Chia Bread or Keto Breakfast Muffins*) Be sure to check out all the other Breakfast ideas on the site.

I would choose salmon over bacon any day! This bowl of goodness was inspired by a colleague recently (at my part-time gig at the Fat Duck) who whipped this up one day after a few of the chefs missed staff lunch. I looked longingly at their bowls and realised this was the ultimate keto breakfast. The meal is filling and its likely to keep you satisfied well into the day. I used soft goat’s cheese, but if the idea of eating such a strong cheese in the morning makes you want to throw something at me, use full-fat cream cheese instead. (I made a note of those macros at the end.) Be sure to check out other Breakfast ideas on the site..

Keto Breakfast Muffins

These are quite similar to my Quick Keto Chia Bread recipe I posted last week, except I made these in ramekins which create perfect little muffin shapes (which I then sliced in half). This recipe will make 2 muffins and yield 4 slices, as pictured. The macros have been calculated per 1 serving (1 muffin cut into 2 slices). They can also be toasted by simply frying in a little olive oil. Top with a poached egg or butter and good-quality prosciutto, like I did on my Low-carb Prosciutto Muffins or (if you are very ambitious) make a super-posh Keto Salmon Eggs Benedict. Enjoy!

Quick Keto Chia Bread

I have to admit, even in LBK (Life Before Keto) I rarely ate bread. And when I did indulge, I always regretted it afterwards: I felt bloated and miserable and wouldn’t poop for a week (no bacon butty is worth that), so I didn’t miss it much when starting keto. However, being human and all, the craving for a slice of toast with butter-and-Bovril still slaps me through the face every now and again and I am well-chuffed with this alternative, where I used almond flour and ground chia seeds to achieve a lovely ‘bread’ texture and flavour. Give it a try and then pat yourself on the back for being so dedicated…

Toasted Cheese & Tomato (using Quick Keto Chia Bread)

Another fab (and super-simple) idea using a slice of the Quick Keto Chia Bread: Keto toasted cheese & tomato sarnies! I used regular strong Cheddar cheese and tomato and calculated the macros for your benefit. Of course, its nothing fancy but it will hit the spot. One serving is one open slice, as pictured, but double it up and have two if your daily macros allow it…
