Breakfast on the Keto Diet has a lot of options but on a busy morning sometimes you just need something that is quick and easy. This Cheesy Baked Eggs Recipe fits the bill at my house.
Eggs are a good source of protein and fat. In addition, they have many health benefits such as building lean muscle and assisting with weight loss.1 The following are additional USDA fun facts about eggs.
Egg Nutrition Facts
- Ever wonder about the difference between medium versus large and extra-large eggs? The USDA defines the sizing of eggs not by their dimensions, but by their net weight per dozen eggs. Not by the true size of the individual egg.
- Egg dating can vary by the terminology used on the carton. An expiration date is no more than 30 days past when the eggs are packaged in the carton. Look for the following printing with a date, Exp, Sell by, or Not to be used after the date on the carton. The expiration date should not be confused with the maximum time to expect eggs to maintain their quality. When you see Use by, Best before, etc. you know that the date on the carton is 45 days past when the eggs were packaged in the carton.
- Refrigerated eggs need to be stored in a refrigerator at home. When a cold egg is left at room temperature it can sweat to increase the risk of bacteria entering the egg. Leave refrigerated eggs at room temperature no longer than 2 hours.
I make my eggs in a small 1-quart casserole dish. Just spray the dish with Coconut Oil Spray so the eggs release quickly.
Quick and easy made in one dish for easy clean-up. Using last night's leftover cooked vegetables or yesterday's bacon or sausage makes preparation a breeze.
The basic recipe includes eggs, whipping cream, and grated parmesan cheese. You can add extra ingredients, to your preference. Just remember to keep track of the extra carbohydrates.
