This Keto Egg Loaf Recipe is a great breakfast, lunch, side dish, or snack. It mixes up in 5 minutes and has only 5 ingredients plus salt. It also reheats well on busy mornings.
I’m so excited to share about this Keto Egg Loaf recipe. When I saw Emma's recipe going around a facebook group for keto recipes I knew I had to try it. And once I tried it I knew I wanted to share it with my readers and I'm glad she agreed! It is so easy and so good. My favorite part is that you don't have to cook the broccoli first. As long as you use small pieces they cook in the loaf while it bakes.
It’s everything you could want in a keto breakfast recipe because it’s filled with nutrients, easy to make, and has five simple ingredients. You aren’t going to want to miss out on this delightful breakfast loaf.
Sometimes we get tired of the same basic low carb breakfast foods. And I wanted to make something different, unique, and absolutely delicious that the entire family would love. I’m excited to say everything turned out perfectly, and we are all very happy with this broccoli and cheddar breakfast bread.
What Is Needed To Make This Egg Loaf
I wanted to discuss each of the ingredients that you’ll be needing to make this keto egg loaf. Here is a breakdown of what you’re going to need:
- Eggs: the eggs are the star of the show because not only do they provide you with lots of protein and other valuable nutrients, they also help to bind the other ingredients together and give you a perfectly delicious breakfast flavor.
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese: In our house, we happen to really enjoy regular cheddar cheese. You can easily swap out the cheese with any of your favorites such as mozzarella, pepper jack, Colby jack.
- Fresh Broccoli: Using fresh broccoli gives you the best results. You could use frozen broccoli if you’d rather, but make sure to drain it very well before adding it or it may affect the cooking time and texture of the dish.
- Coconut Flour: Adding coconut flour will allow the egg loaf to be more of a bread-like texture instead of an omelet.
- Baking Powder: A little bit of baking powder will make this egg bread nice and fluffy. It’s the ideal way to start the morning!
- Salt: I like to use about a teaspoon of salt when I make this egg loaf. However, you can adjust the amount of salt that you want based on your preferences. If you want a little more, add a little extra, and if you want a little less, then cut back.
How to make this Keto Egg Loaf
You truly aren’t going to believe how simple this breakfast idea comes together. Most of the time is going to be spent waiting on it to bake and making your house smell amazing. Here are the easy to follow directions to get you started. You just mix the ingredients. Pour into a bread pan. And bake.
Step 1: You will need to prepare a loaf pan by spraying it with cooking spray or lining with parchment paper and turn on the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2: Combine the eggs, shredded cheese, broccoli, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. After the ingredients have been mixed well pour them into the loaf pan.
Step 3: Bake the low carb egg loaf for 30 to 35 minutes or until it has become puffy and golden. Slice it up and serve!
How Do You Reheat This Egg Loaf Recipe?
This is great for breakfast, lunch, as a snack or a side dish. And, yes, it reheats well. I even fried a few pieces in bacon fat for breakfast a few days after baking it. They were delish! Over the years, I have found the best methods to reheat a low carb egg bread are to heat it in the microwave or on the stovetop.
Microwave: To microwave the egg bread, you will need to place it on a microwave-safe plate and heat it for 30 seconds to a minute or until it is hot all the way through.
Stovetop: My favorite way to warm it up is by heating it on the stovetop. It will give you a nice crispy edge and tastes amazing. What you will need to do is add a little bit of grease or butter to a frying pan, then add slices of bread to the pan and cook until it is the look and texture you like.
Is This Keto Egg Loaf Healthy?
Yes, of course! In every serving of this, you will end up with a fantastic amount of beneficial nutrients. You will get vitamin A, vitamin B12, protein, vitamin D, calcium, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin E, and so much more.
How Do You Store Leftovers?
In order to store leftovers of this egg bread, you will need to let it cool to room temperature. Once it has cooled, then you can place it in a food-safe container. Refrigerate for up to 5 days. Additionally, you can freeze the leftovers in an airtight container for up to one month.
What to serve with Keto Egg Loaf?
I loved the texture of this. It is great on its own and over the top pan-fried and slathered with some cream cheese. It was a nice change to an omelet or other gluten free keto egg dishes for breakfast. I served it with a side of bacon. Some other choices would be sausage, fried tomatoes, fresh berries, Keto Cinnamon Bread, or low carb bagels.
Variations of this Broccoli & Cheddar Keto Bread Recipe
I'm sure you could sub in another type of cheese or even another vegetable. I've been thinking about making a spicy version with bacon and jalapeno.
