Breakfast: it’s perhaps the menu with the most stumbling blocks for those living low-carb. Eggs are great, but—let’s face it—get old without some variety. At times we may find ourselves missing the traditional breakfast classics we might have enjoyed at one point—even when we know they don’t fit our current health goals.

But who said keto was about deprivation? Not us, for sure. With a huge array of keto-friendly classic recipes, we’re hellbent on showing the world just how great keto eating can be—with real food, full flavor and no compromises. So, back to breakfast now…. We dare you to bring this savory keto waffle breakfast sandwich to work—and see just how many people you convert.

Warm, hearty, healthy dishes are seriously calling to me right now. Maybe it’s the cooler weather, maybe it’s the fact that I’ve been training for a half marathon and, well, more miles always make me hungry (and I know I’m not alone). Actual footage of me after a recent long training run: via GIPHY Or maybe, just maybe, it’s the fact that Brooks Running offered the blog ambassador team (which includes us!) this recipe for huevos rancheros from Hansons-Brooks athlete Brendan Gregg. Brendan took eighth place at the 2016 Olympic Trials in the 10k, so if he’s saying it fuels his…

These aren’t fried eggs, nor are they scrambled. The eggs in these tacos are just slightly set, with a warm, runny yolk that is barely scrambled into the whites. Slide one of these gently cooked eggs into a warm tortilla, top with cool avocado and lime and slices of jalapeno and you’ve got the perfect breakfast taco. Although these egg tacos are delicious for dinner, too.

The main reason to gently scramble an egg is that it tastes delicious. The whites are fully cooked, but the yolk is runny, which gives the egg a soft and creamy texture. The second reason to gently scramble an egg, rather than whisk it all together and cook it over high heat, is that the cholesterol stays intact. Meaning it’s not oxidized, which is a healthier way to enjoy eggs.

These egg tacos are a delicious alternative to meat tacos. They’re perfect with a simple topping of avocado, cilantro and jalapeno, but feel free to pile on fresh tomatoes or salsa, too.

Servings: 4 tacos

Time in the Kitchen: 20 minutes, plus time to make tortillas

Ingredients

  • 3 avocados, cut into small chunks
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice (10 ml)
  • ½ cup finely chopped red onion, divided (120 ml)
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup finely chopped cilantro (120 ml)
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, sliced
  • Salt, to taste
  • Tortillas of your choice*

*About the tortillas… Three choices include Primal TortillasCassava Flour Tortillas, or (in the spirit of a Primal compromise or for non-Primal family members) a Corn Tortilla.

Instructions

In a medium bowl, gently mix together the avocado and lime. Add salt to taste. Set aside.

Add a little avocado oil or butter to a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add about a tablespoon of red onion, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the onion softens slightly.

Crack one egg into the hot pan with the onion. Use a spatula to break the yolk and gently stir it once or twice into the white, but don’t scramble the yolk fully into the egg white. Let the egg cook for 1 to 2 minutes until the bottom and white of the egg begins to set but the yolk is still soft.

*Another way to gently scramble eggs is to separate the whites and yolks. Add the egg white to the pan first and cook it for several minutes, then add the yolk for the last minute of cooking.

Slide the egg and red onion into a warm tortilla. Sprinkle cilantro on top. Top with avocado and a few slices of jalapeno.
