What can I eat for breakfast on keto?
Breakfast needs to be nutritious, filling, and tasty. And in busy mornings, breakfast needs to be fast.
It can be difficult to find a quick and easy keto breakfast recipe that the whole family will love. The easiest breakfast ideas that are family-friendly are low-carb sugar-free granola, fried eggs, scrambled eggs, and of course leftovers.
What is inside a breakfast burrito?
The genius part of 2-minute low carb breakfast burritos is that you can make the basic burrito, then the whole family can add their favourite fillings.
You can guarantee this way they will actually be eaten.

I know a burrito is traditionally a Mexican dish, but breakfast burritos are a clever twist. The low carb burritos are so adaptable for any breakfast filling. I like to use chives or rosemary. My children, however, like to use onion flakes and cheese!
Add these variations to your basic low carb burrito, and add salt and pepper to season to your liking.
- 1 tablespoon chopped chives
- 1 tablespoon dried or fresh chopped rosemary
- 1 teaspoon onion flakes
- pinch chilli powder, ¼ teaspoon dried coriander (cilantro), ¼ teaspoon dried cumin
- ¼ cup grated/shredded mozzarella cheese or cheddar cheese
- 1 tablespoon bagel seasoning
- leftover cooked ham
- leftover pork sausage
If you vary the flavour of the basic keto breakfast burrito, then you can also vary the fillings to give it a real kick! Take a look at the options below.
Burritos are also a great idea for a healthy lunchbox. Always allow the burrito to cool first, then add the fillings and roll up. Secure and wrap using baking parchment paper, wax paper, aluminum foil, or a freezer bag.

More keto breakfast recipes
Breakfast needs to be fun, tasty, and fast. These are some of the most popular family-friendly recipes that still keep you on track with your keto diet. Keto waffles and keto sheet pan pancakes can be made ahead of time and are perfect for the freezer for easy meal prep for the week ahead.
If you're wanting a more traditional burrito (but without the unnecessary carbs) you can make a low carb tortilla then fill it with breakfast fillings such as scrambled eggs and bacon. Or my favourite breakfast has to be the reverse omelette. Crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.
They are best cooked and eaten fresh, especially because they only take 2-minutes to make. However, you can make the egg burrito ahead of time and they can be stored in the refrigerator overnight in an airtight container and reheated before adding your fillings. They should not be frozen.
One burrito provides 1.5 g net carbs from the eggs and the double/heavy cream. Fillings are additional so please calculate your own nutritional information and net carbs for accuracy. The carb value of your fillings can soon add up so make sure they fit within the carb limits for your low-carb diet or keto diet.
Melt butter in the frying pan, or use a cooking spray before you add the egg mixture. Use a silicone spatula (with no rough edges) and carefully lift the edge of the burrito or slide onto a serving plate.
