Meat & Cheese Omelette

When it comes to breakfast, to hit for 30 grams of protein is ideal for women and this meat & cheese omelette is prefect for that!.

When it comes to breakfast, to hit for 30 grams of protein is ideal for women. But getting to those 30 grams can be tricky because you prefer to eat something other than big in the morning. So, adding eggs and meat is a great way to reach those 30 grams effortlessly and this meat & cheese omelette is prefect for that!.

Omelets are a versatile and satisfying breakfast option. They’re easy to make, healthy, and most importantly, delicious! I enjoy mine with a dollop of guacamole for an extra kick. Sometimes, I’ll add a touch of sour cream or fresh herbs like cilantro or chives. The possibilities are endless!

This breakfast omelet is a flavor explosion! It’s so satisfying that I often eat it as an easy-to-make dinner, too!

Meat & Cheese Omelette ingredients:

  • Eggs: prefer pasture-raised eggs whenever possible as they are more nutritional.
  • 1 slice of raw cheese (or cheese of preference)
  • Ground beef: you can use 80/20 or lean.
  • Salt: I prefer to use a high-quality salt as Redmond real salt.
  • Tallow or ghee for cooking. Coconut oil works well, too. 

Additional Add-Ins

While sticking to meat and cheese is perfect for a classic omelet, many more options exist. Try adding some of these to your next omelet:

  • Fresh herbs such as fresh parsley, cilantro or green onions.
  • Bacon, nitrates free.

Time-saving tips:

Prepare the meat ahead of time. Something that I like to have in my fridge is already-cooked meat. I want to have it as ground beef or scheduled meat. Adding more protein to your meals is much easier if the protein is already cooked.

Cooking time



A delicious way to eat 30+ grams of high quality protein for breakfast in just one sit!


  • 3 eggs

  • 2 onion slices, diced

  • 1 slice of raw cheese (or cheese of preference)

  • 2 tablespoon raw ground beef

  • High-quality sea salt

  • 1 tsp tallow or ghee


  • In a small bowl, combine eggs, add a little salt, whisking to beat well. Set aside
  • Add tallow or ghee over a medium-heated skillet, rotating the pan to coat the bottom. Add the onion and cook for 1-2 minutes. Then add the ground beef and cook for 8 minutes. Add the coconut aminos sauce and cook for 2 minutes more, until well done. Set aside.
  • Heat 1 tsp olive oil in an 8 inch non stick skilled over medium heat. Pour in ½ cup of the egg mixture, and swirl to completely coat the bottom of the skillet. Allow to set for 30 seconds. Gently use a spatula to push the eggs about a ½ inch away from the sides towards the center, mimicking the same motion around the pan. With each push of the eggs, slightly tilt the pan to fill in the runny eggs. Repeat this process until no more wet eggs naturally fill into the space you create around the sides of the pan.
  • As eggs cook, gently lift the edges with a spatula and tilt the pan, so the uncooked portion flows underneath. Cook for 3 minutes or until just set.
  • Add the cheese and meat and fold the omelet in half.
  • Cook for 1 minute or until the cheese is melted. Serve immediately.


  • Serve it with fresh fruit for a complete meal.
