The BEST Creamy Keto Skillet Eggs Recipe

I’m not so sure how you feel about eggs, but they can get pretty boring if you eat them every day and don’t change it up a bit.  I love eggs but I need variety!  I’ve got the perfect solution for you and guess what???  It’s fairly easy to make too!  The best part is the whole family loves it and it’s Keto friendly!  Talk about a win-win for everyone.  The little one even said, “Mom, please make this every day because I love it!”  Gosh, I love when they request food that is really good for them.  My heart nearly melted.

If you’ve followed me for any amount of time you will know that I love, love, love my cast iron skillets.  The longer I have and use this pan the better it gets.  It’s one of the only pans that I probably won’t ever have to replace.  This recipe is perfect for them!  If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, I would love to encourage you to invest in one.  They are fairly inexpensive and worth every penny!  They have many different Cast Iron Pan sizes here on Amazon or if you are lucky, you might be able to score one still in stock at your local Walmart too.  (Although Walmart does carry a limited variety of sizes)

If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, make sure you use a pan that you can start off cooking on the stove top and end up cooking in the oven.  Don’t use a pan with a plastic handle.

For this recipe, I used my 10-inch cast iron skillet.  It is just the right size for the creamy eggs to sit in the gravy and it holds 8 eggs nicely.  You could easily add two more eggs to this recipe in this size pan but if you needed to make this breakfast meal for a bigger crowd, I would use a bigger skillet.  This is why I have a few different sizes!

The key to the success of this recipe is the flavors we used.  I used fresh parsley and fresh dill.  Thankfully my little Cinder Block Garden provides me with lovely fresh herbs because buying them in the store is crazy expensive for a very small amount.  I love the fact that I can go in my backyard and pick off exactly what I need when I need it without wasting any.

Creamy Keto Skillet Eggs Recipe Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 to 10 large eggs
  • 2 tbs fresh parsley
  • 1 tbs fresh dill
  • 4 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled

 

Creamy Keto Skillet Eggs Recipe Instructions

  1. Set the oven to 375 degrees
  2. Start by pouring a small amount of olive oil in the cast iron skillet.
  3. Pour the heavy whipping cream, salt, and pepper into the skillet and bring it to a simmer over low to medium heat stirring it constantly.
  4. Add the fresh parsley and fresh dill.
  5. Once the cream mixture has started to simmer, turn off the heat.  The cream mixture will start to thicken at this point.
  6. Crack each egg and place it directly into the hot cream mixture.
  7. Place the creamy Keto skillet eggs in the oven to bake until the yolks are baked to your desired consistency.  I baked them for about 8 minutes.
  8. Remove them from the oven and sprinkle with cooked bacon crumbles.
  9. Serve it warm and enjoy!

 

I wanna say this recipe only took about 15 to 20 minutes from start to finish.  It is a super easy recipe that packs a flavorful punch when you need a new twist on breakfast!  Try it!  I’m certain you will enjoy it as much as my family does.

  1. I tried this recipe a couple of years ago and loved it! Today, I reached out to Jennifer to get the recipe again, and I’m so looking forward to making it again!

    Great recipe. I hate olive oil so rather than spoil my dish with it, I substituted with bacon fat making it a fully carnivore dish.

    My husband and I just started on the keto diet. He is loving all the yummy stuff I’m finding and our friends and family are shocked, “This is keto!?” They exclaim delightedly as they taste the breads, casseroles, snacks, and other things I’ve made from your site and others. We have enjoyed this skillet meal in a variety of ways, most commonly with sausage crumbles in the bottom before adding the cream. This morning I used about 1/4c of chorizo. It was the San Luis brand that has 3 links and i used 1.5 links cooked up before i added the cream. I added some taco seasoning instead of parsley, dill, salt and pepper. It was a different flavor. But it was good. We are meditating on it this morning. Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes.

    ohh these look fabu!!! must make them in the morning for brekkie!! I LOVE cast iron. I am the proud owner of 5 cast iron pans and a large cast iron soup pot…all of which I inherited from my mom, which she inherited from her mom, and one, the skillet, was given to her by her mom when she got married…we have estimated that it is probably over 100 years or more old, maybe 150 and it is still cooking great and talk about non stick…it has years of bacon grease and lard cooked into it (before the powers that be told us all it was unhealthy…..!!) Thanks for the recipe, and i agree go cast iron…it is the only pans I have, if I could afford to buy more cast iron pots I would get rid of the stainless pots i have…
