If you are doing an egg-fast, or need some inspiration to jazz up eggs, may I remind you about the very simple, classic dish of cream-baked eggs, also known as oeufs en cocotte. My recipe below is uncomplicated and packed with flavour (it’s my current addiction when I don’t feel like cooking or if Funnyman is travelling!) Ramekins are essential for this specific recipe, but if you choose to use a wider, shallower dish, you may need to shave some time off the cooking. Its 30 minutes in the oven for the whites to set and for the double cream to bake to a heavenly flavour, but it’s well worth waiting for. I seasoned the cream with smoked salt flakes and garnished the finished dish with some some chives (to make it cute).
I know, I know …. how flipping cute is this breakfast? I bought several mini cast-iron pans (13cm / 5-in diameter) just so that I can make this breakfast for house guests. My version of Shakshuka is super simple: the cooked tomatoes are spiced with ground cumin, cayenne and smoked paprika, then an egg is cracked into the centre and baked to perfection. To finish, I used smoked sea salt flakes to season. TIP: These would be great served with my Keto Breakfast Muffins. Enjoy your brunch!
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!
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..
A quick and easy breakfast idea to get some fibre and added nutrients into your morning meal. Baby spinach leaves – when cooked well – are buttery and amazing, and I could have it with just about anything. Since many of my readers want more egg and/or breakfast ideas, I think poached eggs on spinach is a great option to post to make your morning meal a little more interesting.

This is just a quick post to show how lovely the Keto Breakfast Muffins are that I posted earlier today. A good spread of unsalted, grass-fed butter and topped with best-quality prosciutto and you have a quick lunch sorted for two people! My Keto Breakfast Muffins recipe (which is used in this recipe idea) makes two muffins, which are then essentially halved. Macros are calculated per one serving being two halves, exactly as pictured.
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…
A quickie post this, just showing how lovely my Quick Keto Chia Bread is (it’s my favourite of all the keto breads – my version has no ‘eggy’ flavour) – so now you you can still enjoy delicious Keto avocado toast for breakfast or as a light snack…
I am one of those lucky ladies whose hubby brings me coffee in bed every morning, Also known as Caveman coffee or Bulletproof coffee, this is Funnyman’s version of our morning cuppa. One of these in the morning and I rarely eat breakfast because I am full and satisfied for many hours. It is commonly made in a blender, but we are busy people and can’t be bothered: invest in a mini whisk and you will save yourself plenty of money and time because the most important thing is that the fats are emulsified in the hot coffee. I like sweet coffee, and use Truvia sweetener. If you are starting off, use only a teaspoon MCT Oil then gradually increase the amount to one tablespoon because too much too soon can sometimes go right through you. Much like a bullet…
These little zero carb keto breakfast ‘muffins’ are something of a mini-frittata. They are very rich, so one batch could last you a couple of mornings (they store well in the fridge). Pop them in the microwave for a quick keto-friendly breakfast. Do change up the filling – mushroom, peppers and different cheese all work well. If you can’t be bothered with cleaning the muffin tin (eggs are notorious for sticking), use cupcake cases. One serving = 2 muffins.
