Spring Onion Scramblies (Keto)

Spring Onion Scramblies

Some inspiration may be needed after a while of wolfing down eggs on keto. I can hardly call this a ‘recipe’, as its merely an idea to make your scrambled eggs a little interesting (and I took the liberty of calculating the macros for you). I made this for myself one night when Funnyman was away and I was in no mood to cook. The stir-fried spring onions bring a lovely sweetness to the scrambled eggs: they are flash-fried until bright green and partially caramelised before the eggs are added. This is a great way to pimp your scramblies…! (And fab served on a slice of toasted Quick Keto Chia Bread or Keto Breakfast Muffins not included in these macros). Be sure to also check out all the other Breakfast ideas on the site.

Course Breakfast
Cuisine General
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 1 person


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 TB double cream
  • salt and white pepper
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter
  • 2 large spring onions, (salad onions)
  • pink Himalayan salt


  • Whisk the eggs together in a little jug. Add the double cream and season with salt and white pepper.
  • Trim the spring onions (use two big, fat spring onions). Slice the white parts at an angle into thick pieces, like below. Keep separate from the green parts, which should be finely sliced and kept aside for the garnish.

  • Melt the butter in a non-stick pan over high heat. Once hot, add the white parts of the spring onions and fry over high heat until they turn bright green and they partially caramelise (this happens quickly in a hot pan).

  • Pour in the eggs and immediately remove the pan from the heat. Stir the eggs continuously off the heat using a silicon spatula until they scramble and cook through.

  • If they are not done to your liking, slide them back onto the hot plate which should have been turned off or to VERY LOW (the residual heat of the hot plate will continue to cook the eggs.) (If you are doubling this recipe, you may need to keep the eggs on the hot stove top, but keep it on very low.) You will have lovely, creamy eggs in this way, and not overcooked rubbery scrambled eggs.

  • Season with pink Himalayan salt and garnish with the sliced, green parts.


I mentioned that you should use 2 large spring (salad) onions. This is key, as it may not pack the same punch if you use thin, small ones. If it helps, your trimmed weight of spring onions should be at least 35g / 1.2oz. If it isn't, use another 1-2 onions. (Macros were calculated on the above weights)

A new-and-improved version of this delicious recipe features in my new cookbook KETO KITCHEN - currently available to pre-order on Amazon worldwide. (For UK readers, it will also be available at Waterstones.)
