Hero Recipe – The Fool-Proof Omelette + how-to video

You can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs…

Here at Low Carb Leeds we are huge fans of the humble egg. Superbly nutritious and versatile, the egg can be boiled, scrambled, poached or fried to make a perfect, no-fuss low carb meal or snack in minutes.

With the addition of just a few basic store cupboard ingredients you can also knock up a great tasting omelette, which can be eaten hot immediately or stored, wrapped and taken with you for an on-the-go breakfast or lunch.

If you’ve never made an omelette before it might appear tricky to master. Or perhaps you’ve tried already but the results didn’t turn out ‘eggs-actly’ as intended! Certainly my first omelette attempts tended to remain solidly in the pan!

Is this the best low carb/keto recipe ever invented? At Low Carb Leeds we certainly think so!

Fat Head Pizza is legendary in the low carb world and this recipe has been tried and tested by many in our Low Carb Leeds community – comes top rated every time!

If you have adopted a low carb way of eating and are missing pizza (I know I did!) – this is the recipe for you! It is gluten and grain free, only just over 2g of carbs per slice and incredibly filling! Where before, I could polish off a whole regular wheat dough pizza, I can only manage 2 (occasionally 3) slices of this low carb version – meaning that there is always leftovers for the following day. Yay!
