Scrambled Egg Tips

Unfortunately, when it comes to scrambled eggs, a lot of people get it wrong, which is possibly why eggs sometimes get a bad rap. Our recipe is a no-fail, delicious, low-carb way to make tasty scrambled eggs.

Don’t Over Stir The Eggs

So what’s the fatal error? They over-stir their eggs and end up with a gummy, rubbery mess.

Luckily this simple low-carb keto friendly scrambled egg recipe will help you avoid that fate! The key here is PATIENCE. Let your eggs set more than you stir them, then prepare yourself for the fluffiest, cheesiest, most flavorful eggs you’ve ever had!

Add Heavy Cream

Adding heavy cream will fluff up the eggs and make them more filling, so you stay full in between meals.

Ingredients:

  • Eggs: This is the base of the entire recipe – use your favorite kind of eggs.
  • Heavy cream: You could use half and half or coconut cream as a substitute, but it will alter the macros in the eggs. It’s best to use heavy cream.
  • Salt and Pepper: Flavor your eggs generously with salt and pepper.
  • Cream cheese: A bit of full-fat cream cheese will enhance the richness of the eggs.
  • Shredded cheddar: Change up the type of cheese you use. Extra sharp cheddar for more bite, or mozzarella for more saltiness.
  • Butter: It’s best to use salted butter for the eggs, to enhance the other flavors.

How To Make Low-Carb Scrambled Eggs

STEP 1: Crack your eggs into a bowl.

STEP 2: Whisk eggs until all yolks are broken and well blended. Pour in half & half and add salt & pepper to taste; whisk well.

STEP 3: Add dabs of cream cheese. Don’t try to whisk any more.

STEP 5: Melt butter in pan over medium-low to low heat. Pour in egg mixture. Using knife or whisk, spread out cream cheese dabs so they aren’t all clumped together. Let set for a minute or two.

STEP 6: After eggs have set; stir ONE time. Just once. This is very important! Over-stirring scrambled eggs is the mistake most people make. The LESS you stir them, the fluffier and better they will turn out.

STEP 7: After another minute, stir ONE time, then add shredded cheese. Wait another minute then stir once more. Lower heat if necessary.

STEP 8: Wait another minute then flip eggs upside down to make sure they are evenly cooked. Cook for about one minute longer and they are done! Remove from heat and enjoy

Storing Leftovers

Leftover scrambled eggs don’t save very well. It’s best to make and eat them fresh. If you want to refrigerate your leftovers, keep them in an airtight food storage container in the fridge for no more than 3 days.
