In my opinion, you can’t beat eggs for breakfast. They’re tasty, filling, nutritious, and versatile to cook with. I consider them one of the most essential foods for any keto dieter.
How I prepare my eggs depends on my mood and how much time I have. When I need something quick, I just fry up a few eggs. Sometimes I opt for an avocado breakfast scramble, but I also love to mix it up with a simple, delicious keto omelette that I’m going to share with you.
Start to finish, this recipe only takes about ten minutes to make. Along with my mocha coffee recipe, I don’t think there’s another way I’d want to start the day. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! ~Tim Tebow

Why You Can Feel Good About Eating This Keto Omelette
If you’re anything like me, you want to feel good about what you’re fueling your body with. This recipe has a lot to feel good about.
- Eggs - particularly the egg yolk - are packed with healthy fats that include the majority of the vitamins and minerals you need. Fat is the most essential macronutrient on keto. It’s highly satiating and provides you with sustained energy to get through your day.
- Spinach is well-known for being a superfood. It’s packed with antioxidants  and essential minerals like potassium, zinc, and copper . It’s easily one of my go-to veggies for the ketogenic diet and it’s great in a salad or a keto-friendly dip, thrown in a smoothie (like my Strawberry Vanilla Keto Shake), or in an omelette like this.
- Bacon provides flavor and even more essential nutrients. Despite what we’ve been led to believe, bacon is not bad for your health! Pork fat is one of the top 10 most nutritious foods on the planet, according to the BBC , and for that, we are all thankful.
How to Make This Omelette Your Own
Just like smoothies, omelettes are awesome because they’re versatile and easy to customize.
You can usually add whatever meats, vegetables, herbs, or spices you want into an omelette and it’ll still be delicious.
Choose your favorite meat. My keto omelette recipe contains eggs, bacon, sausage, and ham. But that doesn’t mean yours has to! If you love bacon but hate sausage or ham, leave it out or swap it with more bacon. If you don’t have any meat on hand, skip it and throw in some cheese instead!
Add cheese. Many people love cheese in their omelettes, and I can’t blame them. Cheese is delicious and, happily, on the keto-approved food list. If you’re a cheese lover, throw a handful of your favorite full-fat cheese in with the other ingredients before folding it over.
Get creative with veggies. Most vegetables are keto-friendly, with the exception of those that are grown below ground. Potatoes, carrots, and any other starchy or sugary root vegetables can be high in carbs and might push you over your daily limit. But this recipe is versatile enough that you can add whatever veggies you have on hand.
Out of spinach? Try arugula. Want more greens? Add some broccoli. What to turn up the flavor? Add garlic, onions, or cauliflower.
Omelettes are highly customizable and you should absolutely make this recipe your own.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the three eggs until it’s light and fluffy.
- Heat a skillet on medium heat and cook the bacon and sausage links.
- Once they brown up, take them out of the pan and heat the ham. Remove from pan once heated thoroughly.
