Keto Omelette Ingredients

How to Make Keto Omelette
Cut all of your vegetables into a small dice. Saute over low-medium heat until tender. Remove from heat and set aside.
Beat eggs, heavy cream, salt and pepper in a large bowl, blender, or food processor. Pour egg mixture into a pan set over low heat. Gently move eggs around to cover the bottom. When eggs are nearly set in the center, add vegetables to one side and flip the other side over them creating a classic omelette pocket. Turn off heat and add cheese. Serve when cheese is melted.
Storing and Reheating Keto Omelette
In general, eggs are best eaten freshly cooked. When reheated, they will tend to get a bit rubbery. If you do have any leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. To reheat, add them to a pan set over low heat. Cook just until heated through to avoid the rubbery texture.
