5 Easy Keto Omelet Recipes - easy low carb omelets for an egg fast! (1)

I recently went on a egg fast. I won’t go into all the gory details but needless to say I needed to come up with some keto or low carb recipes with minimal ingredients and of course eggs.

Since I love eggs this was not much of a problem but I only lasted 1 full day on the egg fast. However I did come up with a few great low carb omelet recipes.

So today I wanted to share with you my 5 easy keto omelets that I have been eating lately. They were delicious and all were less than 5g net carbs.

Is it omelet or omelette?

I’m never sure which of these words to use. After looking it up it, omelet is the American English spelling and omelette is the British English spelling. So no matter which way you spell it they are both correct.

Are omelets Keto?

Omelets are definitely considered keto. Each of these omelets follow the basic macros of keto eating. They are roughly 70-75% fat, 5% carbs and 20-25% protein.

Basic Omelet Recipe & Technique

Here is the gist of how to make these yummy low carb omelets.

  1. Add a teaspoon of butter to an omelet pan and wait until it starts to melt and sizzle.
  2. Meanwhile whisk 3 eggs and whatever herbs or spices you are using and pour into the sizzling pan.
  3. Next cover the pan with a lid and turn the heat down to medium low.
  4. After a few minutes take off the lid and add the cheese if using and cover again.
  5. When a few minutes have passed, take off the lid and make sure the omelet is cooked through.
  6. Slide off the pan and fold it onto a plate.

Easy peasy. I got this technique from a fiction book I read years ago and have used it ever since. Now on to our keto omelets.

Buffalo Blue Cheese Keto Omelet

5 Easy Keto Omelet Recipes - easy low carb omelets for an egg fast! (2)

1 teaspoon butter + 3 eggs + 2 tablespoons blue cheese + 3 teaspoons hot sauce

With the egg fast you eat just eggs, fats and cheese and that’s not hard to do with an omelet. So when thinking of cheeses to use I came up with this buffalo flavored omelet because I had a lot of leftover blue cheese.

I added 1 teaspoon of hot sauce to the butter in the pan and when the omelet started setting up, I added the blue cheese and 2 more teaspoons of hot sauce. This is my favorite omelet because I have a thing about buffalo flavoring.

Greek Feta Cheese Keto Omelet Recipe

1 teaspoon butter + 3 eggs + ¼ cup feta cheese +¼ teaspoon oregano + zest of ½ lemon

Moving on down the cheese spectrum I also had some feta cheese on hand. So I added a bit of lemon zest and oregano to the beaten eggs and sprinkled feta cheese in after it set up. This too was very delicious!

418 cals / 33.9g fat / 3.1g carbs / 0.2g fiber / 23.5g protein = 2.9g net carbs

Mexican Green Chile Keto Omelet Recipe

5 Easy Keto Omelet Recipes - easy low carb omelets for an egg fast! (4)

1 teaspoon butter + 3 eggs + ¼ cup cheddar cheese +1 tablespoon diced green chiles + ⅛ teaspoon cumin + ⅛ teaspoon chili powder + ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder

I got the idea for this one because my husband has a million Anaheim chiles in the garden. So I just added the spices and green chiles (you can use canned) to the eggs and the cheese once it set. Delicious!

361 cals / 26.7g fat / 3g carbs / 0.1g fiber / 25.2g protein = 2.9g net carbs

Cheddar Chive Keto Omelet Recipe

5 Easy Keto Omelet Recipes - easy low carb omelets for an egg fast! (5)

1 teaspoon of butter + 3 eggs + 1 tablespoon of chopped chives + ¼ cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Cheddar and chives doesn’t just work great with potatoes, it’s great with eggs too. Add the chives to the beaten eggs and the cheese once the omelet starts to set. Simple but tasty.

427 cals / 34.4g fat / 3.5g carbs / 0.1g fiber / 25.3g protein = 3.4g net carbs

Italian Ricotta Cheese Keto Omelet Recipe

    The ricotta omelet is brilliant! I so often have just a little ricotta left over from a dinner and never know what to do with it.
