  • 4 large eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices ham, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • ½ cup Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 tbsp parsley, freshly chopped (optional)
  • 2 low carb tortillas


  • In a medium-sized bowl, crack the eggs and beat them until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the ham and cook for 2-3 minutes or until it slightly browns.
  • Pour the beaten eggs and chopped tomato into the frying pan with the ham. Use a spoon to scramble the eggs with the ham, cooking until the eggs are set.
  • Remove the frypan from the heat and sprinkle the grated Cheddar cheese over the eggs and ham mixture. Let the cheese melt slightly.
  • Warm the low carb tortillas in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
  • Divide the egg, ham, tomato, and cheese mixture evenly among the tortillas, placing it in the center of each one and topping it with chopped parsley if using.
  • Roll up the tortillas, folding in the sides to create a burrito shape. Serve immediately.
