When first switching to a keto-based diet, the idea of being able to have bacon and eggs for breakfast every morning is quite exciting.
But after a couple weeks, having the same bacon and egg meal starts to get a little boring. (Bacon getting boring? Who knew?!)
There is a lot more to keto and low carb breakfasts than bacon and eggs though, as you’ll soon see. In fact, there are so many options, you’ll never have the chance to get bored.
You want waffles? You’ve got them.
You want pancakes? You’ve got them.
You want porridge? You’ve got that, too.

I used to enjoy making waffles because it was just so simple to put together – mix in the flour, sugar, and egg, and you’re pretty much done.
Finding a Keto Waffle recipe that was just as simple proved challenging, but this may just fit the bill. No fancy ingredients or complicated steps. This could be quick enough to make during the week even!
You can top the waffles with nut butters or thick cream, or take two waffles and turn it into a breakfast sandwich.

Cauliflower for breakfast? I know what you’re thinking…. but just bear with me.
Cauliflower is one of those amazingly versatile ingredients, and is a great replacement for potato because it doesn’t have a very strong flavor.
In fact, once you add the onions and chives in the Onion & Chive Cauliflower Hashbrowns, you might even forget you’re eating cauliflower!

And if you’re nervous about making your own bread – don’t be. This is quite a simple recipe!

Keto Breakfast Biscuits Stuffed with Sausage and Cheese
Image credit goes to How To…This and That
These Keto Breakfast Biscuits Stuffed with Sausage and Cheese are a great option if you want to prepare your breakfast in advance, so you can just grab and go in the morning.
The ‘biscuit’ part uses a version of fathead dough (made with cream cheese, mozzarella, eggs, and almond flour), so it is gluten- and egg-free. The filling is sausage and cheese, but you easily mix it up by changing the fillings. Bacon and sharp cheese would probably work quite well!
You will fiind the dough quite sticky – this is very normal. If the dough balls are sticking your hands, dust them in a little almond flour.
