Our Philly Cheesesteak Omelette is a Low-Carb Breakfast Option2022-03-26
A new, low-carb take on an American classic.
Our new, Philly cheesesteak omelette recipe pulls all of the traditional Philadelphia flavors together into a healthy breakfast option. Whether you need a way to use up some leftover steak, or want to prepare a special brunch for your loved ones, this omelette is sure to impress! And while this meal is low in carbs, it’s high in protein and healthy fats that will keep you and your guests full and satisfied for hours!
A Taste of Philly
Philly cheesesteaks are one of Philadelphia’s most famous dishes. Traditionally, these big subs (or hoagies– if you’re from Philly like me) are made with thinly sliced steak, provolone cheese, and a sauteed onion and green bell pepper mix. We’ve folded all of those classic ingredients into a delicious omelette to offer the same great flavor, just for breakfast!
Stay Energized with a Big Breakfast
You may have heard that it’s important to eat breakfast every day, and as a dietitian, I agree! Not eating in the morning can cause low energy, agitation, and even massive cravings that lead to overeating later on. Instead of skipping breakfast to save calories, try to eat small and nutritious meals and snacks consistently throughout the day, including breakfast! This low-carb, nutrient-dense omelette is a great choice for a high-energy breakfast that can help you avoid extreme hunger later on.
Fill Up on this Philly Classic
You can whip this savory omelette up in just 20 minutes! Start by heating a medium pan or skillet over medium heat. Add a little bit of olive oil and once hot, toss in your sliced onion and green bell pepper. Saute the veggies for about 5 minutes or until soft, then add cooked steak for just minute to warm it up. Remove the steak and veggies from the pan.
Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl and then, pour a quarter of the scrambled eggs into the skillet, letting it cover the whole pan. Add some steak and veggies to one half of the omelette and top with a slice of provolone. Fold one half of the egg round on top of the steak, veggies, and cheese, before flipping it over. Let it cook for 1 to 2 more minutes, then remove from the pan. Repeat these steps using the rest of the egg mix to make 4 omelettes total. Top each omelette off with some salt, pepper, and diced tomato, and enjoy!
