Philly Cheesesteak Omelet

Philly Cheesesteak Omelet - This low carb breakfast recipe is a carb-friendly version of the sandwich we all love

I love a good Philly cheesesteak sandwich. Unfortunately, all that bread (warm, delicious bread…) isn’t very carb-friendly. The good news is that you can throw just about anything into an omelet for a low carb option. Here’s the low-down on how to make your own yummy, cheesy Philly cheesesteak omelet (and yes, it’s one word).

First, cook up some peppers and onions in a little butter. You do have peppers and onions on hand, right? They’re essentials for cooking simple low carb meals. It doesn’t matter how much. Can you ever have too much sauteed onions and peppers? No. No, you cannot. So, just slice them, toss them in the pan and enjoy that yummy smell as they cook.

Meanwhile, tear apart some roast beef. Yeah, I didn’t have any steak on hand…or any “real” roast beef, so I use the deli stuff. It’s not bad; I promise. After you tear it up, toss it into the pan to get it nice and hot with the veggies. You can put your provolone cheese on the meat and veggies at this point if you’d like. I wait for the next step.

Beat three eggs together and pour them in a pan sprayed with Pam. Let the bottom firm up, and then flip it. Immediately remove the pan from the heat, top half of the eggs with your meat and veggies and put lots of provolone slices on top. And then add more veggies if you dig onions and peppers as much as I do.

Cover the pan with a lid for a minute while the bottom of egg cooks a little more. No more than a minute though. As you can see, mine got a little overcooked. Oh well. Still delicious. Then, just fold it in half and enjoy. Yum, yum.

Easy, right? You can have a hearty breakfast in about 10 minutes. It’s super filling.

  1. This looks like a great & hearty breakfast! Yum, I can almost smell it. I can’t eat anything big for breakfast so I usually just have a yogurt.

    • I have yogurt some mornings. I can’t eat a heavy breakfast right away, either. I usually do omelets after I’ve been up for a couple of hours.

    This looks amazing! My Hubby has just gotten me into eating omelets and this definitely looks a great twist to make it even better! Thanks for sharing –

  3. That is so pretty! Eggs can be so touchy! When my son started eating “big kid” breakfasts we started going through the eggs like crazy so i am always looking for things to jazz them up. Great recipe!

  5. Your omelette looks amazing. Mine look more like scrambled eggs no matter how hard I try. I love the idea of ditching the bread and making a philly cheesesteak as an omelette.
