Low Carb True Egg Salad

Marcia McCance


While doing "low carb" I started thinking outside the cereal box and discovered that my absolute favorite breakfast is a green salad with a couple of fried eggs over easy!!

Don't have a cow!! I know this is odd but it is also really delicious. A truly healthy breakfast that does not involve any junk food.

It is not as bizarre as you might think! They put hard boiled eggs on a chef salad, why not a couple of eggs over easy? Or some scrambled eggs? It's a lot faster to fix than boiling, too!

P.S. These are "actual photographs" of my breakfast today.

How to Make Low Carb True Egg Salad


  • 1To make my life easy, I make a large salad out of a whole head (or two) of lettuce, tomatoes, broccoli and put it in an air tight container to last thru the day... and maybe over night. When I want some I scoop out a bowl full and I'm ready to dress up my salad.
  • 2This morning's salad was left over from yesterday so there is not much tomato left... but whatever is in the bowl is my breakfast.
  • 3Step one: make a salad -- you know how. I added my feta cheese at this point so it would be under the hot eggs when they are added. It makes the cheese a little melty.
  • 4Step two: Fry up a couple of eggs, however you like them. I did them one at a time for pictures but I made two eggs... you'll see the other one on the salad.
  • 5Step three: Take your eggs from the pan to the salad and place it on top.
  • 6Step four: Garnish as you wish. I used 2 Tbsp of my creamy low carb dressing with a zip and a bit of pimiento for color. Then serve. Creamy Low Carb Salad Dressing With a Zip!

    NOTE: The second egg cooked a little too much for my tastes as I was taking pictures, so you can see the browned one in the back!! I don't like to waste food and it tasted good, too! LOL
  • 7To eat, I take a knife and fork and cut the eggs into smaller pieces which also mixes the garnish and the salad all together. YUMMM!!!
  • 8No big mystery -- it is just salad with eggs -- make them all your way and ENJOY!!

A fried egg is versatile. It's delicious served alongside a potato hash and a must when making a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich. There's really no proper way to fry...
