These baked eggs breakfast ideas offer creative solutions to breakfast for low carb and keto diets or anyone looking to change up their morning breakfast routine.
A low carb diet can sometimes be challenging trying to come up with new and creative ways to enjoy your favorite high protein foods. There are a ton of amazing low carb recipes available on the internet (a bunch of them are featured below), or you can get a low carb cookbook too.
PRO TIP: My favorite low carb cookbook right now is called Eat Happy by Anna Vocino. The recipes get rave reviews, and I know Anna has tried and retried these recipes to make them perfect so they actually work, taste great and look as good as they do in her pictures.
I especially love that she has low carb pizza crust recipes because pizza is my all time favorite! She also has recipes that use a spiralizer and some recipes that are traditional favorites but made low carb. There are desserts too!
If you want to learn more about Anna you can listen to her every week on the Vinnie Tortorich podcast. She's real and funny and really is trying to help people eat happy while giving up sugars and grains!
No diet can be successful without variety. And because eggs are a nearly perfect food, most low carb fanatics find that they eat a lot of them, so I was on a mission to make a list of some of my favorite low carb baked egg dishes, and I figured I'd share them with you.
Some of them are kid-friendly, some would make great appetizers, and some are filled with delicious vegetables making them super healthy options. You can make them as-is or change them up for your tastes or based on whatever ingredients you happen to have on hand.
You can get the recipes by visiting each link below (a few of them are even my own). Happy eating!
10 Low Carb Baked Eggs Breakfast Ideas
Eggs are so super versatile. I really think you can bake them with just about anything to create a delicious meal. Baked eggs expand adding volume to whatever it is you are cooking and somehow eggs manage to go well with so many different foods. You can serve egg dishes for any meal of the day too.
1. Low Carb Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole
Simple and very kid friendly, this low carb egg casserole with sausage reheats well too. I made it in a ceramic pie pan but you can use just about any dish that works well with a casserole, even a cast iron pan.
2. Cast Iron Turkey and Cheese Frittata Recipe
This recipe is delicious and super easy to make because you use deli meat as the base. You can use ham, turkey, roast beef, even sliced chicken and customize it with any number of different vegetables or add-ins.
3. Baked Eggs in Ham Cups
This recipe is an excellent way to make individual servings and would make a great appetizer as well as a breakfast. You can change these up by using other types of deli meat and different cheeses as well. Looks delicious! You can use a regular muffin pan or pick up some cast iron muffin pans. The cast iron ones tend to make bigger "muffins" for bigger servings.
I love the idea of adding veggies to your breakfast and these muffin shaped cups are perfect for kids. Maybe they would work well in silicone cupcake liners making then great for make and take or to enjoy on the go.
5. Baked Eggs with Mushrooms and Parmesan
I love mushrooms and eggs seem like they would be the perfect compliment to them. What a creative and delicious looking dish!
6. Baked Spinach and Eggs with Feta Cheese
How tasty does this look? Spinach adds flavor and depth to this egg breakfast. Maybe add some black olives or other veggies too.
7. Low Carb Breakfast Lasagna Egg Casserole
This recipe turned out fantastic, and the addition of the sausage gravy makes it irresistible. It reheats very well too. I used this recipe as a base for the recipe below.
8. Low Carb Breakfast Egg Muffins
In this recipe I took the delicious sausage gravy from the lasagna casserole and made it more portable. These are so good!
High fat and fluffy, this egg quiche is relatively simple and would make the perfect base for a delicious low carb sauce.
10. Low Carb Egg Strata with Blueberries and Cinnamon
This one sounds weird because of the combination of blueberries and eggs, but it is quite tasty, you just need to give it a chance. Who knew blueberries could go so well with eggs?
PRO TIP: I love using unbleached parchment paper to keep things from sticking to pans, and to help make cleanup easier. Normally, the roll of parchment paper is kind of a pain because it never tears right. Well, I recently discovered these unbleached parchment paper sheet and they are fantastic! Super easy to grab and line my pans.
They come in different quantities, I like the 200 pack. Definitely make sure you get the unbleached ones, that way you don't have anything leeching into your food. Cleanup is a breeze using these and no more food sticking to the pan, yay!
