Breakfast is universally considered the most important meal of the day, and nothing gets you going like a quick Keto breakfast. It starts you off and fuels you for most of the activities that you will be doing for the rest of the day. But since there is a good chance that you haven’t gathered your wits and coffee game yet, let’s make this Keto bacon and eggs recipe as simple as possible. 

The Quick Keto Breakfast – Vintage Bacon and Eggs

I wasn’t kidding when I said that this was going to be simple. Chances are there is a full tray of eggs and a pack of bacon hiding somewhere in your refrigerator. Take them out, grab some cherry tomatoes and parsley along the way, put on your apron, and let’s get cooking your vintage bacon and eggs.

Eggs

No quick Keto breakfast is complete without eggs. You need not look further when attempting to get healthier. Eggs are still the undisputed carrier of a variety of nutrients and adding them to your diet does not only make your food tastier, but it also makes them rich in vitamins and minerals, thus, more beneficial.

Nutritional Value of Eggs:

Protein

Eggs are the benchmark for protein in other foods. Not only are they exceedingly protein-fortified, but they also build antibodies, repair muscles, promote weight loss, and strengthen your heart. 

Carotenoids

Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids naturally found in egg yolks. They keep eyes from age-related eye diseases, such as cataracts and macular degeneration.

Vitamin B12

50% of your daily requirement of vitamin B12, which shields you from heart disease, is found in an egg, making battling heart disease yummy and over easy.

Bacon

Our love-hate relationship with this breakfast staple ends here as they are proven to be less destructive and more beneficial. Bacon also fits perfectly into any quick Keto breakfast recipe, so say hi again to this old friend.

As we may already know, meat is a very good source of nutrients, and bacon is meat. A typical 3.5-ounce (100-gram) of cooked bacon contains:

– 37 grams of high-quality protein

– Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and B12

– 89% of the RDA for selenium which helps maintain a healthy immune system

– 53% of the RDA for phosphorus for the care and repair of muscles and tissues

– It also provides an ample amount of the minerals iron, magnesium, zinc, and potassium

Bacon does contain fat, and though half of that fat content is saturated, the other half contains omega-3 fatty acids which pack a bunch of health benefits. It is also known to be high in choline which is highly beneficial for brain health.

Cherry Tomatoes

We specifically chose cherry tomatoes since they have more beta-carotene content than regular tomatoes making them charged with vitamin A.

Benefits of Cherry Tomatoes:

Anti-Carcinogenic

They are a good source of vitamin C, lycopene, melatonin, and as mentioned, beta-carotene, which are all notorious enemies of cancer cells.

Full of Vitamins and Nutrients

Because of the component alpha-tocopherol, this middle ground between a vegetable and a fruit is a great source of vitamin E and vitamin B6, folate, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, potassium, along with vitamins A, C, and K.

Parsley

Typically recognized as a potent disease-fighting plant, parsley provides great nutritional value and offers many potential health benefits. A 1/2 cup (30 grams) of fresh, chopped parsley contains:

– Protein: 1 gram

– Fiber: 1 gram

– Vitamin A: 108% of the RDI

– Vitamin C: 53% of the RDI

– Vitamin K: 547% of the RDI which prevents blood clotting and promotes bone health

– Folate: 11% of the RDI

– Potassium: 4% of the RDI

The ketogenic diet is a low-carb, fat-friendly, and protein-loving weight-loss program. Basically, you try to do away with carbs and replace them with high-fat or high-protein alternatives. You may have to part ways with pasta and sweets, but you can have unlimited eggs, bacon, and cheese which all work perfectly for a quick Keto breakfast. 

Ok, let’s get started on the vintage bacon and eggs.

Ingredients

Directions

This is hands-down the most favored keto breakfast of all time because of the availability of ingredients and it is no doubt easy to make.

Step 1

Fry the bacon in a pan on medium-high heat until crispy. Depending on the bacon's thickness you should probably keep it on the pan for 5 - 8 minutes. When done, put them aside but leave the fatty oil in the pan.

Step 2

Use the same pan to fry the eggs. Set it at medium heat and crack your eggs into the bacon grease. Leave it there for about 3 - 6 minutes, depending on how runny you want your yolk to be. Or cook the eggs any way you like them, sunny side up, over easy, scrambled, soft scrambled, the sky is the limit.

Step 3

Slice the cherry tomatoes in half and fry them over the bacon grease.

Step 4

Garnish with parsley to add color and appeal in case you want to post before you eat.

Conclusion

It takes about 20-25 minutes to prepare, giving you enough time to brew a cup that would go perfectly well with your ketogenic breakfast. Who says you can't have bacon and eggs at any time of the day? It's probably breakfast time somewhere in the world anyway.
