Low-Carb Double Cheesy Scrambled EggsApril 8, 2022
These Low-Carb Double Cheesy Scrambled Eggs are sure to make for a great morning! To make scrambled eggs that are low in calories, that have 36 grams of protein and only 5 grams carbs, and still cheesy and delicious, try cheese powder and fat-free cheddar cheese. The combination is out of this world!
Recently I purchased a cheese powder from Amazon. Not only was it only $9.41 for a 1lb container (so cheap), but each tablespoon is only 25 calories! I’m convinced this container is going to last me forever!
I’ve used it a few times. I’ve sprinkled it on veggies and pasta. But adding the cheese powder to my scrambled eggs was a game changer! I love that for only 25 calories, I could get that rich, creamy, cheddar taste.
I enjoy eggs daily. Ever since I started losing weight last year, it became part of my daily weight loss meal plans. And for that reason alone, I’ve become SUPER creative with different ways to cook eggs.
But for these scrambled eggs, I just wanted them to be cheesy. And did I mention they are high in protien and low in carbs? 36 grams of protein on that plate and only 5 grams carbs!
Low-Carb Double Cheesy Scrambled Eggs
- 1 medium egg
- 1 cup liquid egg whites
- 1 tablespoon cheese powder
- 1/4 cup fat-free cheddar cheese
- 3-4 baby spinach leaves
- 1/4 teaspoon Mrs. Dash Onion and Herb (or something similar)
- Whisk together whole egg and liquid egg whites. Add cheese powder and whisk until lumps no longer appear.
- Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray.
- Pour eggs onto hot skillet, and using a spatula, move the runny eggs around, scraping the bottom of the pan to get all the eggs hot and cooked.
- When it's just about cooked, add spinach and sprinkle with cheese. Put lid on it for 1-3 minutes, while the cheese melts and the spinach wilts.
- When done, sprinkle with Mrs. Dash sodium-free seasoning.
