This recipe has become one of my keto breakfast favorites in the last few weeks.
The fried mushrooms, the cheese, and the omelette go together so well and will leave you full for a long time.
It’s the perfect dish for all of you who like to eat full-flavored and savory food.

 
What I love about this recipe:

  • It’s low in carbs while high in micronutrients and high-quality protein.
  • It’s super satisfying and will fill you up for hours.
  • Eggs are the perfect way to start your day and incredibly nutritious – one egg contains a small amount of almost all essential nutrients out there!

    MUSHROOM GARLIC OMELETTE INGREDIENTS:

    (You can find the exact amounts needed on the recipe card at the end of this post.)

     

    FOR THE OMELETTE:

  • eggs: I’d recommend buying pastured eggs or at least organic eggs. Pastured eggs contain a higher amount of Omega-3 Fatty acids, which are linked to a variety of health benefits.
  • optional: cream some people add cream or milk to their omelettes and others don’t – well, I do add a bit of cream but you can skip it if you don’t like it or if you’re eating a paleo-based diet
  • seasoning: salt, pepper
  •  
    FOR THE MUSHROOM FILLING:

  • mushrooms: I used champignons, preferably organic and finely chopped
  • onion or shallot: finely chopped
  • garlic: finely chopped
  • cheese: I used grated Gruyère – skip if you’re eating a paleo-based diet
  • butter or cooking oil: for frying – if you’re following the paleo diet use paleo-friendly cooking oil like coconut oil or avocado oil.
  • seasoning: salt, pepper

    HOW TO MAKE A CHEESY GARLIC MUSHROOM OMELETTE:

     

    FIRST THINGS FIRST: TIPS ON HOW TO MAKE A PERFECT OMELETTE:

    Making a perfect omelette can be a bit tricky.
    Here are a few tips for you so your omelette will turn out great:

  • Beat the eggs before adding them to your pan.
    Use a fork or egg whisk to beat the eggs until the egg whites and egg yolks have completely mixed.
  • Use a non-sticking frying pan with melted butter or cooking oil.
  • Set the heat to medium.
    If you set the heat too high, the omelette will burn before it’s completely cooked.
  • Wait until the eggs are completely cooked and be patient – you shouldn’t see any liquid egg on top of the omelette before proceeding to the final step.
    Test if you can move the omelette by moving the frying pan back and forth quickly.
    If you can, perfect!
  •  
    Let’s get to the rest of this recipe.
     
     
    1. Chop the mushrooms, onion and garlic & fry:
    Chop the mushrooms, onion, and garlic very finely.
    Melt a bit of butter or vegetable oil in a frying pan and add the onion first.
    Fry the onion on medium to high heat until translucent and add the garlic + mushroom.
    Fry everything for approx. 5-10 minutes.
    Season with salt and pepper.
     
    2. Make the omelette:
    While the mushrooms are frying in one pan, prepare the second pan by melting a tbsp of butter or cooking oil.
    Beat the eggs with the cream (optional) and seasoning before adding them into the second frying pan.
    Cook the omelette on medium heat – don’t set it too high!
    Wait approx. 5-7 minutes until you can move the omelette in your pan.

    Don’t forget to stir the mushrooms in the other pan while making the omelette!
     
    3. Add the mushroom-onion mix + cheese to your omelette:
    Add the fried mushrooms onto one half of your omelette. Leave the other half empty.
    Grate a bit of cheese of your choice over the mushrooms.
    Fold the omelette by flipping the empty omelette half on top of the mushroom half.
     
    4. Serve:
    Enjoy your garlic mushroom omelette while it’s still hot.
     
    One serving of this cheesy garlic mushroom omelette (half of the omelette) with the added cream has 2.6g net carbs (3.3g total carbs and 0.7g dietary fiber), 21g fat, 11.5g protein and 250 calories.
    If you skip the cream, the calories and the fat count will be slightly lower.
    (I try to be as accurate as possible with this information, but values may vary because of natural occurring fluctuations and different products used.)
