Keto Omelet with Bacon

  • Servings: 1
  • Difficulty: Easy

Last year I gave the Keto diet a try and was pleasantly surprised when my doctor told me to keep doing what I was doing as my labs came back great and I lost 25 pounds! So what did I do? I went to Italy! When we returned from our trip it was very hard to go back on Keto 100%. Well, Teresa is off to Greece so I'm back on Keto. For those of you eating Keto, this is a quick and easy breakfast that satiates you until dinner time and it's a tasty way to start your day. You don't have to follow a Keto diet to enjoy this hearty breakfast!๐Ÿฅ“ ๐Ÿ˜‹

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs, beat well with a fork
  • A 1/4-inch thick slice of onion, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil (I use LouAnaยฎ Coconut Oil, it has no coconut aroma or taste to distract from your other ingredients.)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 3 slices of bacon (preferably with no antibiotics, sugar-free, & nitrate free)
  • ย 1-2 Tablespoons shredded Swiss cheese (may be substituted with your favorite cheese)
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley for garnish

 

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 400ยฐF.
    2. Line a small baking sheet with foil and place the 3 slices of bacon on top.
    3. Cook 4 minutes then turn and cook another 2-4 minutes. Drain on paper towels (You will have perfectly rendered bacon fat that can be stored in a glass container in the refrigerator for future sautรฉing).
    4. In a small skillet on medium heat place 1/2 tsp coconut oil.
    5. Add the bell peppers and onions, salt & pepper. Saute until translucent.
    6. Lower heat & add the eggs and stir quickly to mix in the peppers & onions.
    7. ย Gently cook for 1-2 minutes or until the bottom is set and can be flipped over.
    8. Flip eggs and sprinkle Swiss cheese on top.
    9. Cook another 1-2 minutes until eggs are fully cooked but not overcooked.
    10. Slide omelet onto a dish and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
    11. Add the cooked bacon and enjoy!
