I've been low carbing for over ten years. And I can tell you, there are TWO hard things about this way of eating. Breakfast, and fast food. Really, that's it! And it's not to say that fast food isn't negotiable – it's just that you always need to change up how you order the original dish, which this British girl shies away from!

Breakfast or brunch at home, at the weekend, with all the time in the world, is no problem – and it's not all about eating eggs, either! But that's not reality for most people – especially during the week with busy mornings! Meal plans can help, but I figured I wouldn't be the only one to benefit from this list of keto breakfasts and products that are seriously quick to make.

I'm not particularly good at preparing things in advance for breakfast, but there ARE three exceptions:

  • Bacon – I always try and keep cooked bacon available at all times! Not only for breakfast, but also for salads and snacking!
  • Hard Boiled Eggs – I cook around 6 at a time, and then that keeps me going for several days. Perfect for breakfasts where I don't want to cook. Check out how to cook Hard Boiled Eggs in the Instant Pot!
  • Chia Seeds – Chia need soaking time so that they can absorb liquid. Whether it's for a drink, dessert, or breakfast – I can sometimes be organized enough to prepare this the night before.

Oh – here's a quick video I made of five of the easiest low carb breakfasts!



So here's my top list of easy recipes to try. I use low carb tortillas fairly often but otherwise everything is gluten free and grain free.

Grilled ham steak, a poached egg, and jarred Hollandaise sauce makes for a quick and tasty low carb breakfast!



  1. Use an Egg Cooker or poach the egg as follows: Crack the egg into a ramekin and set aside.
  2. Add an inch of water to a small saucepan, add the vinegar, and season generously with salt. Bring the water to a fast simmer, and use a spoon handle to swirl the water round in one direction.
  3. When the water is swirling, drop the egg into the center of the swirl. Turn off the heat, cover, and leave undisturbed for 5 minutes.
  4. While the egg is cooking, warm through the ham steak on a grill pan - about 2 minutes on each side.
  5. Transfer the ham to a plate, then use a slotted spoon to remove the cooked egg from the water. Pour over some of the Hollandaise sauce, season with black pepper, and enjoy!
