When your living the keto lifestyle eggs are like your best friend. You can eat 10 to 12 eggs a day without going over your macros. Of course if you add other ingredients you have to factor those into your daily allowed macros as well. I eat a lot of eggs through the week and fix them so many different ways. It helps me stay full and I do love eggs.

Hope you enjoy this recipe. Be sure to let me know if make and what you think.
