Low-Carb Breakfast Skillet With Scrambled Eggs
I absolutely love making up new recipes with ingredients that I already have in my refrigerator. This idea came to me when I was trying to figure out how to use up some leftover ground beef and peppers. I always have eggs in stock (thank you keto!) so I decided to make a simple skillet meal.
The result was better than I imagined!
Who knew that ground beef and eggs taste so perfect together? They really do!
Beef & Egg Scramble
This meal is incredibly budget-friendly. The most expensive ingredient in it is ground beef. If you can find a type of ground meat that costs less, go for it! This skillet meal tastes just as delicious with ground chicken, ground turkey, or even some breakfast sausage.
How To Use Eggs For Dinner
Eggs are usually pretty affordable and I know that my kids love eating them at any meal they can. Frying them up in a skillet with some meat and veggies is really fun and easy too.
In fact, you can save some of this for your meal prep for the week too. It reheats so well! Just store it in your favorite resealable meal prep containers in the refrigerator. It will stay fresh for up to 3 days.
You can also buy a bunch of eggs and ground beef and make a few freezer meals out of it too! To freeze it, make the skillet meal and then let it cool completely. Then, place it in a resealable
Scrambled Eggs Skillet
There are so many different ways you can customize this recipe. I used Monterey Jack cheese because I like the sharp bite it has.
Try it with a different type of cheese. Gouda will give it an earthier flavor, sharp cheddar cheese has a richer taste.
You can also add a small amount of habanero peppers for a powerful bite! Try it with some taco seasoning and you have a keto taco skillet.
For a meatless version, use mushrooms instead of ground beef.
Hearty Keto Breakfast
You can certainly eat this any time of day, but it is a very filling way to start your day. This is a high-protein meal that kids love too. Fill it with more vegetables for a filling recipe.
Replace the peppers with bacon and/or sausage and drizzle it with ketchup. This turns it into breakfast for dinner that kids will love.
