Cheddar Chive Steak and Eggs

There really is no better way to brunch than steak and eggs. Quick, easy and carb free. Don’t get me wrong though, this is by no means a low calorie recipe.

Chive Steak and Eggs

It’s fat (steak)…

that has been cooked with fat (canola oil)…

that is sitting on top of fat (eggs)…

that is also cooked in fat (butter)…

that is then mixed with fat (cheddar cheese)…

that is then drowned with a sauce made of fats (egg yolks and oil).

Chive Steak and Eggs

Woah! Why am I always so eager to talk about how fatty my recipes are? Three reasons.

  1. It’s obvious when a recipe is not low calorie. There are two main camps of people that post food recipes online. Those that post the indulgent foods that melt. Melted cheese, chocolate, ice cream…just basically anything that the surgeon general would advise against. Then you have the rainbow group that have food recipe galleries that resemble exotic forests (forests made up mostly of kale and avocados). I am in the middle.
  2. Chances are, if you clicked on a recipe titled “Cheddar Chive Steak and Eggs”…you don’t care about over indulging.
  3. Fat has such a bad rep as the cause for fat gain. So do carbs. All that matters in weight management (I’m not talking about health) is calories. So yeah, the 930 calories on this plate was made apart of my WEIGHT LOSS diet.

Ultimately the recipes that I share come down to a few points. They are a reflection of what I have learned, what is inspiring me at the moment and most importantly…if I truly feel that they are worth your time and effort. This Cheddar Chive Steak and Eggs is definitely worth the 25 minutes…and the calories!
