Have you been looking around for some decent low carb breakfasts? Sometimes it seems like all they recommend is plain old eggs and bacon or protein shakes. I was looking around the web for some decent alternatives that would actually taste delicious and add some variety to the menu. Check out these low carb breakfast recipes for meal time inspiration!
It’s no surprise that you’ll find a LOT of egg recipes here, but I hope you’ll see that there are so many ways to jazz them up to make them exciting. I’ve found that a lot of these recipes also freeze well in individual-sized portions, so you could easily make a recipe or two at the beginning of the week and have breakfast ready for yourself within just a few minutes each morning.
These Bacon and Egg Muffins from Diabetic Foodie are super tasty! We have been making something similar for years. She also has a great recipe for Crustless Crab and Asparagus Quiche, which looks pretty good and gives those eggs a totally new flavor profile.
More recipes from her include:
Mexican Microwave Egg Scramble (SUPER great for on the go and when you’re in a time crunch in the morning!)
Looking for something hearty without using eggs? Try this tasty Sausage Zucchini Breakfast Scramble from Nerdy Foodie Mom
Small Town Woman has a slew of great breakfast recipes! Be sure to check them out. They aren’t really labelled as low-carb, but I have found that they are easy to tweak just a bit to make them perfect for this way of eating.
As with other recipes, you may have to omit or replace certain ingredients (like omitting potatoes or replacing regular milk with heavy whipping cream). That’s the beauty of low carb, you should be able to make most of your favorite recipes low carb with just a few tweaks!
Wholesome Yum shared her yummy recipe that only has 6 ingredients, as pictured above.
Low Carb Breakfast Casserole With Sausage & Cheese (Gluten-Free) It really goes to show that by doctoring them up a little bit, regular ingredients can turn into something spectacular!
She also has this Mascarpone Crêpes recipe, which only uses 4 ingredients. Her 2-Minute Cinnamon Swirl Mug Muffin looks really good, too, and is also good for paleo folks or those on Trim Healthy Mama. I love quick and easy!
Finally, you might want to give this Spinach Egg Bake a try. It would be the perfect winter breakfast and is filling without being too heavy.
