Eggs are great keto food, actually they are kind of a mega-food for keto.  Some people actually do egg fasts. I have come up with a lot of ways to eat eggs.  Lucky for me, I've always been a big egg eater.  Here are my favorite ways to make them.

Hard-boiled - Yes, just easy to take on the run and a great snack.  I like to sprinkle them with S&P or dip them in melted kerrygold butter.  Sound weird, try it.

Deviled Eggs - Take your hard boiled eggs cut them in half.  Mix up the yolks, mayo, mustard, and any other spices or veggies to your liking.  Siracha is good. Stuff filling back into eggs. 

Egg Salad - I make a lazy version of this where I just mash up an egg with some mayo, mustard, and diced onion and call it good.

Scrambles - I like scrambling eggs up with sausage or ham, onion, green pepper or any other low carb veggie I have on hand.

Omelets - One of my favorites.  I love cheese so an omelet is really just another avenue to eat more cheese.  I like to add pepper jack cheese, green chili, and some diced bacon to mine.  To top it off I add some Herdez green chili salsa or guacamole salsa.  So so good.

Egg cups - Using a muffin tin, line them with lunch meat of choice.  Break open an egg into each tin on top of the lunch meat. Add some cheese and veggies if desired.  Bake until the eggs have set (unless you like them runny).

Breakfast burritos - Take a scramble from above and stuff it in a low carb tortilla with some sour cream, cheese, and salsa.

Shakshukra - Really good and really simple.  In an oven safe skillet cook up some onion and green pepper till soft. Add some garlic. Add some spices: cumin, paprika, and cayenne to your liking.  Add a can of tomatoes (coarsely chopped) to the skillet and simmer until begins to thicken.  Season with S&P.  Now this part is optional - add some cheese of your choice.  Mozzarella, Feta, Monterrey Jack are good.  Stir in cheese.  Crack open eggs on top of mixture.  Move skillet to the oven and bake 7 minutes or so until eggs are set.  Top with cilantro or hot sauce if you'd like.
