How to Make Skillet Soufflé Low Carb Breakfast


  1. Heat oven to 400° F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, chives, salt, and pepper.
  3. In a separate bowl, with an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Using a spatula, gently fold the whites into the yolk mixture.
  4. Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat and tilt to coat the sides.
  5. Add the egg mixture to the skillet and crumble the cheese over the top. Bake until the eggs are puffed and golden, about 10 minutes.
  6. Cut into wedges. Divide the soufflé, salad greens, and tomatoes among plates. Drizzle the greens with the oil and serve with the lemon.
