Ham & Cheese Taco Ingredients
I grabbed all my ingredients at Aldi. I used their Fit & Active hame because it is sliced super thin, along with some eggs, peppers, green onions and sliced cheddar cheese. If you are using leftover ham from the holidays, try to cut the ham as thin as possible so that you can easy fold them to make the taco shell.
Low carb Ham Tacos REcipe
First you make your scrambled eggs. I sauteed the peppers and onions first and then added the eggs and quickly cooked them. Next line a cooke sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. When the cheese gets all gooey and crusty you’ll want to easily peel them off.
Then line the ham on the cookie sheets, spoon some of the egg mixture on half of a slice and top with a half slice of cheddar cheese. Fold over and bake for 10-15 minutes until crispy.

These ham & egg tacos are freezable too!
If you want to freeze these, let them cool completely and store in a baggy or container. Take one out and heat up in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
This recipe makes 10 in a batch but next time I would double it. I like to eat two for breakfast but they freeze so well there is no reason not to make more. Just make sure not to over cook them after freezing or the eggs will get tough.
You can use any kind of egg mixture you like. The first batch I just used cheese but I wanted it to have more oomph so I added the veggies. Chopped spinach would be nice or maybe some spices or a tiny bit of salsa would be good too.
I hope you like this quick and easy keto breakfast idea. They would be great for a quick snack or lunch too. Enjoy! The nutritional information for piece is:
