The Paleo omelette is the perfect way to start the day if you’re feeling like eating a nice cooked breakfast.
One of the best things about this recipe is how easy it is to prepare and cook quickly. It also tastes pretty amazing and can be easily altered to suit your tastes.
In this recipe, I use coconut oil. Still, you can use any other Paleo-approved oils such as avocado oil, olive oil, and the many others out there. Just remember some oils have a low burning point, so make sure you avoid these for frying.
Ideas of What to Add to This Omelette
You’re able to add your own combination of Paleo-friendly toppings to this omelette. In this recipe, I use one variation of toppings, but there are so many choices out there.
Some fried mushrooms will work very nicely in this omelette. You can add it with the current range of toppings, or by themselves. It depends on what you feel like eating.
Asparagus and smoked salmon is an incredible combination that works very well with this omelette. You will want to first blanch the asparagus before adding it to your omelette.
The last topping combination that I want to recommend trying is bacon, tomatoes, and mushrooms. You will want to fry the bacon and cook the tomatoes and mushrooms slightly before adding it to the omelette.

Paleo Omelette Recipe
- 4 eggs
- 2 Tbsp water
- 2 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
- 1 handful of baby spinach
- Cook the red onion and red bell pepper in a pan over medium heat, until the onion is translucent.
- Add spinach and wilt slightly, set aside.
- Whisk together the water and the eggs.
- Heat a pan over high heat and add the coconut oil.
- Slowly pour in the egg mixture.
- Allow the egg to cook slightly.
- If you have toppings, add them to the top now.
- Once the egg is starting to set, you can either finish it in in the oven, under the grill, or attempt at flipping it.
- Lastly, once the egg is completely set, remove from the pan.
- Serve & Enjoy.
- It is best to do an omelette in a non-stick frying pan, as this will help prevent it from sticking and tearing.
- To help cook the egg, don’t be afraid to pull back some of the cooked egg to allow the raw egg to run onto the surface of the pan.
- Heat control is extremely important when it comes to cooking an omelette. For example, if you have the pan too high, the egg will burn and be raw on one side. If the heat is too low, you increase the chance of it sticking and taking forever to cook.

Another delicious breakfast dish that uses egg is the paleo-friendly breakfast casserole. It’s loaded with a ton of vegetables, eggs, and bacon. I highly recommend giving it a try, especially if you need to feed a crowd.
