Eggs are such a classic breakfast food. And because of that, they can get old…fast. Thankfully, there are a lot of different ways to switch up your egg game when you’re cooking a keto breakfast.

There’s everything from a keto chorizo omelette to a crustless quiche lorraine, but sometimes you want to go back to the basics for a delicious scrambled egg.

This recipe elevates traditional scrambled eggs, adding great, cheesy flavor and maintaining a nice and fluffy texture.

This low carb breakfast feels fancy, but the steps are super easy. These Parmesan Scrambled Eggs were actually even a part of the breakfast in bed my family brought me for Mother’s Day this year…and I knew I had to get them on the blog quickly!

These scrambled eggs are also featured in my recipe for keto breakfast pizza, a low carb pizza that uses fathead dough as the base and delicious toppings to get your morning started off right!
