Bacon and eggs make a fine keto breakfast, but having them day after day will start feeling like a chore. The problem many people find with the keto diet is without any carbs, adding variety is a challenge.
Staying keto doesn't have to be so daunting. To prove it, we found ten great ideas that will help you stay in the game and start your day on the right track.
10 Perfect Keto Breakfast Ideas For A Perfect Morning
Even if you're cooking for someone who's not on the keto diet, consider giving these recipes a whirl. Each one is packed with healthy fats and protein that will help promote weight loss and keep you satisfied through the morning. No more late morning snack temptations or grumbling belly.
1. Salmon Stuffed Avocados
Straying away from bacon and sausage, consider taking your healthy fats from the sea instead of the barnyard.
Many people end up binging on saturated fats when they're starting a keto diet. This has the effect of slowing down weight loss as the body tries to eliminate its own fat.
Wild salmon and avocados are good healthy fat alternatives. Try minced salmon mixed with a little goat cheese and a dab of olive oil and lemon juice stuffed into a pair of avocado halves. For a little extra flavor, use shredded smoked salmon.
2. Meat Bagels
Have you been missing your morning bagel since you started your keto diet? This hearty alternative has you covered.
The recipe calls for ground pork, but you could swap most any other lean, ground meat in to suit your pleasure.
Bake them according to this recipe, cool, and stuff with your fixings of choice.
3. Prosciutto-Wrapped Avocado Eggs
If you like Scotch Eggs, you could think of this as a keto-friendly alternative. With a shell of lightly-fried prosciutto, a mantle of avocado, and a core of soft, poached egg, this recipe runs the gamut.
As a plus, it only requires a handful of ingredients and minimal prep time, so it's great if have to balance your diet against a busy morning. The best part is that the recipe is foolproof to boot.
4. Liver Sausage & Eggs
Organ meats are one of the best keto foods money can buy. The flavor, however, is not exactly mild. Many folks find it a little too much to stomach. If you have a more conventional palette but still want to reap their benefits, then this recipe is for you.
This simple recipe calls for a mixture of pork and beef livers cut with ground meat and well seasoned. The result is a rich, nutrient-dense, beef-flavored sausage that goes great with fried eggs for breakfast. You can also prepare the patties in advance and refrigerate them if time is a factor in your mornings.
5. Cauliflower Fritters
Everyone loves fresh, crispy hash browns. Unfortunately, the high carb count in potatoes means they are well out of bounds for any keto breakfast.
In their place, try substituting cauliflower. Cauliflower is one of the most versatile keto-friendly ingredients you can find. When riced, it can take the place of any starchy foodstuff like potato, rice, or grain.
Such is the case with these delicious fritters. The added almond flour helps give them a crispy, potato-like quality. The recipe also uses nutritional yeast to impart a cheesy flavor, but if dairy is a non-issue for you then you can use the real thing as well.
6. Brussels Sprouts Hash
Brussels sprouts are a high fiber, liver-friendly vegetable. Starting your morning with a serving can help you feel energized throughout the day.
This recipe yields a filling, single skillet brussels sprouts hash. Saute the sprouts with shallots, garlic, and bacon, then top with a fried or poached egg. For the nutritional yield, it doesn't get much simpler.
7. Dijon Pork Breakfast Skillet
If you love breakfast skillets but crave something a little heartier than brussels sprouts, then this recipe is for you.
This simple mix of meat, veggies, and spices is quick and easy to make. The only prep work required is chopping a few mushrooms and zucchini, and you can make multiple portions at once to give yourself several ready-made breakfasts for the entire week.
8. Zucchini Fritters
Along the same line as the cauliflower, zucchini is an excellent multipurpose low-carb staple.
This recipe is quite similar to the above cauliflower fritters but with a couple of extra veggies added. They also happen to freeze and thaw well, making them another good option for pre-prepared breakfast options.
Fry or bake them with your protein of choice, and your day is off to a good start.
9. Guacamole Deviled Eggs
Hard-boiled eggs are one of the best keto snacks there are. They're cheap, packed with good fats and proteins, and anyone can make one.
But they don't bring much to the table in the way of flavor, and after a while you can grow to dread the sight of them.
To inject some variety into your diet, upgrade to guacamole-filled deviled eggs.
Essentially, all you will be doing is making a very basic guacamole and adding in the yolks of your boiled eggs and paprika to taste. For extra flavor, add some bacon bits to the mix or use them as a garnish.
10. Keto Breakfast Burger with Avocado Buns
This breakfast recipe may be the most ambitious one on our list. Between being an excellent keto food and avocados becoming one of the most popular burger toppings, the Avocado Bun was the inevitable conclusion.
The idea is simple: ditch the bread and replace it with a split avocado. Replace the burger patty with an egg (fried or poached), make it BLT, and you have one of the most tantalizing keto breakfasts imaginable.
