Low carb breakfast bowls for the win! You'll feel so good all day when you start it right with these keto protein bowls layered with arugula, caramelized onions and mushrooms, delicious cheese, and a fried egg.
2 tablespoons + 1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon bacon drippings (or sub for more olive oil)
1 onion, cut into thin strips
1 cup crimini mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper, to taste
1/3 cup Gouda or mozzarella cheese, shredded
3 tablespoons goat cheese, crumbled
2 cups arugula
Heat a saucepan over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and the bacon drippings.
Add the onion and saute for 10 minutes, stirring every few minutes.
Add the mushrooms and saute for another 10-20 minutes till the onions and mushrooms are caramelized to your preference (I've done it as long as 40 minutes total).
Add the vinegar and stir for one minute. Cover pan and set aside to keep warm while you make the eggs.
Cook the eggs: Heat 1 tablespoon oil in pan over medium heat. When pan is hot, gently crack the eggs into the pan side by side. Allow the eggs to cook till the egg whites are set. If you prefer your yolks set, flip the eggs and cook for 20-30 seconds longer. Remove from heat.
Add 1 cup arugula to two serving bowls.
Divide the caramelized onions and mushrooms evenly and place on top of the arugula.
Sprinkle the Gouda and goat cheese evenly on top of the onions and mushrooms.
Place one egg on top of each bowl and serve!
