This is more of an “IDEA”, per se, than a recipe.
A lot of people write in and ask us for more Breakfast options, because they are tired of the standard Bacon and Eggs, and some people also don’t want to go too Carb Heavy, to venture into Pancakes and Waffles.
So here is a happy medium to break it up a little.
If you live in the South, then you would surely have been treated to some DELICIOUS cornmeal crusted Fried Green Tomatoes with your Breakfast. Especially this time of year with the abundance of tomatoes in the garden, it’s a great way to use them up.
So what we have here is Parmesan Crusted Fried Green Tomatoes with our standard bacon and eggs, but we also have served it with our very flavorful and refreshing Salsa to liven it up even more.
Breakfast doesn’t need to be hard or boring, sometimes you just need to think outside of the box to change it up a little. These little changes are what’s going to keep you on the straight and narrow, on your Keto/Low carb journey.
- Fresh green tomatoes
- parmesan cheese finely grated to a powder works best, use enough needed to coat tomatoes.

Hi, can I do this with aubergines (I love aubergine) or other veg and maybe add a little spice to the cheese (I also love spice)?
