This delicious and easy low-carb breakfast idea is perfect to help get your day off to the right start! An amazing fried cheese, some fruit, a veggie, and your favorite protein. Easy to switch up while still keeping it low carb and perfect if you are trying to keep it healthy!
Breakfast is oftentimes referred to as the most important meal of the day. Admittedly, I am guilty of skipping it sometimes! Whether it is due to being busy, or just not being a huge fan of the traditional breakfast.
This Low Carb Breakfast Idea is perfect though! Quick and easy to make, tons of ways to switch it up and you can even eat it on the go if you need to.
What kind of fruit is best to use?
In theory, all fruit is good for you; but the idea here is low carb! With that, you want fruits high in fiber and antioxidants. Not only will they break down better, it sticks to the ideal of being low carb.
Ideal fruits include:
- Berries: strawberries, blackberries, blueberries
- Kiwi fruit
- Peaches or other stone fruits
Vegetable ideas for a low carb breakfast:
When picking vegetables, keep in mind that veggies with high fiber, will help lower the carbs. Higher fiber mean, less sugar, which means less carbs.
Vegetables such as:
- Bell peppers
These are merely suggestions, and happen to be some of my favorites!
Best cheese for frying:
When scoping out which cheese to go with, go for hard cheeses! They fry well and will not just end in a gooey mess. Instead, they will hold their structure. Cheeses like: white cheddar, halloumi or queso fresco are all great choices.
- Aged white cheddar
- Queso Fresco
Most of these cheeses can be found right in your local grocers deli section.
Other things to add for a low-carb breakfast idea:
I think the fact that you can switch it up in so many different ways is one of my favorite parts of this recipe. Swap out for whichever fruits or veggies are in season. Eggs are amazing, and are definitely low carb. So add an egg.
Switch out the type of cheese, add bacon, or a different type of sauce. Add in a high fat, low carb dip like cream cheese, and enjoy it with a cup of black coffee. The options are endless!
Benefits of eating low carb?
Aside from being a great way to reduce your appetite and lower or maintain a healthy weight, eating low carb also has many other health benefits.

- 5 slice Beef sausage
- 4 slice Semi hard cheese, for frying
- ½ cup Fruit, cut into small pieces
- ½ cup Vegetable, cut into small pieces
- Preheat a skillet over medium heat. Add the slices of cheese directly into the ungreased skillet. Fry them for about three minutes per side. The cheese will harden, and take on a golden brown color.
- Next, add the slices of beef sausage into the same skillet, and fry until they are golden brown; about three minutes per side.
- Cut up small pieces of fruit, and your favorite vegetable and add them to your plate. Enjoy with a cup of black coffee!
