Ideas for eggs. Some assistance required.

I'm on a high fat/low carb diet which requires, well alot of fat and little carbs, and i find eggs are the perfect source, high in protein aswell.

As much as i love eggs, i am running low on idea's, i've done everything i can think of, adding bacon/ham/chicken/cheese. Splitting the white and yoke, placing cheese between them and then cooking so far is my favorite, but if i eat to much it gets over welming.

Any idea's?

I'm all about the omelet. I crack 7-9 eggs into a bowl and leave in at most one yolk. I put bell pepper, onion, spinach, and fat-free cheese in mine. Because you are on a high fat / low carb diet, I think it would benefit you to choose fat sources that are low in saturated fat, and are made of mostly poly/mono-unsaturated fats. Staying away from cheese is a good idea, as well. I speak from years of experience, bro. Get some almonds, pistachios, other nuts, e.v. olive oil, salmon. I like grinding the almond butter at the supermarket -- that is a great tasting fat source, IMO.

Egg Curry is pretty good. Although it is normally eaten with roti or rice you can eat it by itself as a stew.

Make a curry as follows:

1 large onion finely diced
3 tomatoes finely diced
2 cloves of garlic finely minced
1/4 stick of ginger finely minced
1/4 tsp of cumin powder
1/4 tsp of corrainder powder
1/4 tsp of garam masala (make some yourself by blending cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and black pepper or buy some readymade from an Indian store)
pinch of turmeric
pinch of chili powder (if you like it a bit spicy)
Hard Boiled eggs - Cut into halves and then each halve into 4 equal parts. So bite size. Try to ensure the yolks stays with the whites
Fresh corrainder finely chopped
Some fried onion (available in most indian stores)
Fresh lime
1 tbsp of oil
2 cups of water

In a pan add the oil. Next add onions and cook them until brown. Next add ginger, garlic and spices and saute them for a few minutes. Next add tomatoes and two cups of water and let the curry cook until it's nice and thick. Slowly add the eggs and ensure they are well coated in the curry. Garnish with some cilantro, onions and sprinkle of lime and enjoy.

God gave man the egg. Man figured out how to make a frittata. If there is much better I don't know about it.
