Keto Zucchini Breakfast Hash

|Keto Zucchini Breakfast Hash

I love making any kind of hash and not just for breakfast. It's my go-to meal when I don't have time to cook or don't feel like cooking. It's quick and you won't need any special skills. Although I used zucchini, you can try any of your favourite veggies: brussels sprouts, turnips, kale, broccoli or cauliflower - all work great! Then, add some protein like bacon, minced meat or chicken and season with spices and herbs of your liking. Top with a fried egg or avocado and your hash is done!

Here are two of my other recipes to try: Ultimate Bacon Hash and Brussels Sprout & Bacon Hash and more breakfast ideas are here :-)

This is a great recipe for meal prep. Cook everything but the egg or avocado and freeze. Pop a serving in the microwave and add the finishing ingredient.

Add fat to the pan. Unless you used ALOT of bacon...I eat 2T of coconut oil per meal. Just melt on top of cooked food or fry in it and pour any left in pan on top of food.

Just made this about 10 minutes ago.  Tastes great, love the egg and sauted onions.  Something to note: being 6'2" and 230 lbs. I think big, active guys like me might want to double the batch.  I hope this lasts me a few hours.
