Description

This keto spinach, goat cheese, and chorizo omelette is going to be your new breakfast BFF. The rich spiciness of the Chorizo works nicely with the creamy tang of the goat cheese and earthiness of the baby spinach.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 ounces chorizo sausage
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 ounces crumbled fresh goat cheese
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • sliced avocado (optional)
  • 1/4 cup salsa verde (optional)

Instructions

  1. Remove chorizo from the casing and fry in a medium saute pan until fully cooked about 6 – 8 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile beat the eggs and water in a small bowl.*
  3. Take the chorizo out of the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. Wipe the pan of the remaining grease with a clean paper towel.
  4. Melt the butter in the same pan over low heat.
  5. Add the beaten eggs to the pan, then put the Chorizo, spinach, and crumbled goat cheese on half the egg mixture.
  6. Cook on low heat for 3 minutes until slightly firm, then fold the empty side over the side with the filling on it. Cover the pan with foil or a pot cover and leave on low heat for another 3 minutes until the eggs are cooked through.
  7. If your bottom is browning too quickly, turn the stove off and leave the pan covered for up to 10 minutes and the residual heat should “bake” it until the center is fully cooked.
  8. Serve with avocado slices and salsa verde. So good you won’t even miss the toast or hash browns!

Notes

*As a side note, I add the water because as the egg cooks the water turns to steam which helps the egg puff up and get fluffy. Some people like to add milk or cream and you could do that too – totally a matter of personal preference.
