Rich and savory butter and cream-poached eggs, topped with a little shredded cheese, red pepper flakes, and scallions. So rich and filling (and very low-carb). No need for English muffins!

These eggs are a GAME CHANGER! Mine didn’t look pretty (although admittedly I didn’t try to make it look pretty) but I can assure you they tasted the exact opposite of what they looked like. OMNOMNOM. I’ve been Keto (ultra low carb) for two years and I declare this the best recipe I’ve made in at least five years. Unreal. So good! Thank you! Read More

I've made this twice now, and it is so delicious. Definitely a new way for me to enjoy my eggs. The first time I made it exactly as written and I found it to be a little too soupy for my liking. So the second time I made it I cut the cream and only used 1/3 cup, left the butter the same and used 3 eggs instead of 2. I did cook mine a little longer than it said, only because I like my eggs a little more done. These eggs are so good! Thank You for giving me one more way to enjoy eggs! Read More

Easy to prepare and absolutely delicious just as written. I was out of scallion, but that could only have enhanced it. Read More

I loved the eggs this way! The flavor is amazing! So much better than scrambled eggs I often make for breakfast. I would make it even if I weren’t limiting carbs. I plan to make some variations but the basic recipe is a definite keeper! Read More
