Scrambled eggs make such a great meal, and I love that they can be eaten any time of day. This makes a delicious low-carb breakfast dish, but could also be enjoyed as lunch or dinner.

I love this keto dish as is, but possible variations include folding 1-2 tsp harissa through the eggs, using mint and coriander in place of (or in addition to) the parsley and topping with panfried halloumi or chorizo. If you made our Harissa Paste or Mint Pesto, spoon in an ice tray and freeze. Then you can simply add one cube to scrambled eggs for a quick flavour boost!

The roasted pumpkin is baked with fragrant spices and ghee and served instead of a toast. You can serve this keto meal on its own or with a slice of our toasted keto bread (flax-free and nut-free options) or Grain-Free Sunflower Seed Bread (nut-free). For a super-quick bread, use our 90-Second Keto Bread from this recipe or Quick Keto Eggless English Muffin.

Too Busy to Cook?

This recipe is perfect for meal prep too! Simply double or triple the batch of the roasted pumpkin "toasts" and keep in the fridge to serve with freshly cooked scrambled eggs. This way you can literally make this tasty breakfast meal in less than 10 minutes!

What's Dukkah and How to Make it at Home?

Dukkah is a blend of nuts, seeds, and spices. Once you make your own, you'll want to add it to every single meal! It's simple. The basic ingredients are finely crumbled nuts, sesame seeds, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, pepper and salt.

Any nuts will do — our favourites are macadamia nuts and almonds but you can also try pecans, walnuts, pistachios, or blanched hazelnuts. If you can't eat nuts, simply use sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds an/or hemp seeds. To learn about the carb count and electrolytes in nuts and seeds, check out our guide!

You can add even more flavour by using other herbs including thyme, mint, allspice, anise seeds, fennel seeds and chillies for extra heat.

To make the dukkah, dry-roast the nuts in a hot pan, tossing to prevent burning until fragrant and then place in a food processor. Repeat for the seeds and place them in the food processor. Pulse until crumbly. Finely, dry-roast the spices for just a minute and use a mortar and pestle to break until coarse. Add to the crumbled nuts and seeds — that's it! Store your homemade dukkah in a sealed jar for up to 2 weeks.

  4. Pour in the eggs and swirl the pan to coat the bottom. Using a wooden spoon, gently push the edges into the middle of the pan. The uncooked runny eggs should spill out and coat the base of the pan. Repeat so that the eggs are just set, and then remove from heat.
