How To Make Easy 2-Minute Keto Scrambled Eggs
You can't go wrong with a classic scrambled egg breakfast.
Using my SUPER FAST method, you don't even need any dirty dishes. I make it all in the one frying pan.
How Many Eggs In Keto Scrambled Eggs?
I used four eggs, so the directions are to feed two people. However, you can easily cut the recipe in half or double to feed however many people you need. If you are cooking eight eggs expect your cook time to be a little longer. It may take three minutes to cook instead of two.
How many eggs to eat in keto? That really depends on your protein target you have set. Most people under eat protein, and fear gluconeogenesis.

What Vegetables Can You Eat On A Keto Diet?
Basically, any non-starchy vegetable can be used to bulk up your eggs, but my favorite vegetable addition to eggs is lightly sautéed spinach.
The spinach sautés quickly in a few seconds, which is why this scrambled eggs meal only takes two minutes.
You might want to look at this table of all the non-starchy carbs in vegetables. This makes it super easy to decide on which to include in your keto scrambled eggs if you like to bulk up your breakfast.
How Many Carbs Are In Keto Scrambled Eggs?
These keto scrambled eggs with spinach are 1g NET carbs.
The spinach is negligible because only a few leaves are used for colour, texture and variety.
Depending on where you look for your nutrition information, eggs have about 0.5g per egg. Some references allow this to show as zero because the number is less than 1.
Step By Step Keto Scrambled Eggs with Spinach
The first step to making these eggs is to melt the butter in the pan over medium-high heat. Once it's melted toss a few handfuls of spinach into the pan.
The rule of thumb is one handful of spinach per serving. Since I am cooking for two I added two handfuls. If you are feeding four, add four handfuls of spinach.
Lightly sauce the spinach for about 10-15 seconds before adding the eggs. Your spinach only needs to be softened, it doesn't need to be completely wilted.
How To Cook Easy Keto Scrambled Eggs
Once your spinach is softened you can crack the eggs and place them directly in the pan. You really do not need to whisk them in a separate bowl. Remember you are in a hurry, so just crack those eggs directly into the pan.
Scrambled your eggs with a spatula. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the pan to prevent them from burning. Medium-high heat is the perfect temperature to cook your eggs quickly with minimal sticking.Easy 2-Minute Keto Scrambled Eggs. Have you got 2 minutes? The perfect breakfast for a hectic morning!
When your eggs are done scrambling, transfer the eggs to a plate. Add salt and pepper to taste. Then give yourself a pat on the back for making a nutritious meal in a matter of minutes.
Which Scrambled Eggs Toppings Are Keto Friendly?
Your scrambled eggs are delicious how they are. Feel free to eat up at this point. However, if you want to add a little something extra to your eggs sprinkle them with shredded cheese while they are still warm.
The melted cheese is a wonderful addition to your eggs. I also like to top my eggs with some coarsely chopped fresh herbs. My favorites are parsley, chives, and basil. Add all the herbs, or maybe just a few.
