First Time Mom and Losing It: Low Carb / Keto Breakfast Cheese "Tostadas"

Low Carb / Keto Breakfast Cheese "Tostadas"


I was happy that I got to eat eggs, butter and bacon for breakfast on a keto diet. After a few days of that it can get boring. I started alternating with Bullet Proof Coffee which is a great way to get fats and energy in the morning. To alternate with my Bullet Proof Coffee I came up with a different way to eat my eggs in the morning. I was craving Mexican style eggs with tortillas so I made cheese tostadas to swap with the tortillas. To make the cheese tostadas I used the same method I created to make my cheese cups. Instead of molding them on cupcake tins I just let them set up flat.


To swap for my everyday bacon I took a link of chorizo and sliced them into coins and then cooked them until golden and crispy. I took out the chorizo and drained it onto a paper towel. I tossed the excess oil from the frying pan and just left a coat of it on the pan to cook the eggs. To make the eggs I took two whole eggs and whipped them with one thinly sliced scallion. Then I added eggs to the pan and made them into a fluffy scramble. I cubed up fresh avocado and took out my sour cream. Put everything on top the the tostadas and enjoy!


Keto Breakfast Cheese "Tostadas" (Print Recipe)
  • 1 1/2 ounce shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 link Goya chorizo (my brand of choice but you can use any)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 small Hass avocado
  • 1 tblsp sour cream
  1. For my method for the Cheese Cups to make the tostadas. Let them set flat while you make the rest of the recipe. 
  2. Slice the chorizo into coins and fry until it is golden. Take out of the pain and drain on a paper towel. Dump out the oil set aside to cook the eggs. 
  3. Whisk the two eggs and add the scallions. Mix well. Add to pan you used to cook the chorizo and scramble until they are cooked and fluffy. 
  4. To assemble, place the tostadas on a plate and top with scrambled eggs, chorizo, avocado and sour cream.

  1. That does sound delicious to me! Not sure I would go to all that trouble just to make breakfast for myself--but if I had company---
