Tray bakes are such a great high-fat, low-carb breakfast idea. They’re a staple in our house, especially when I’m busy but I want to make sure my energy is balanced throughout the day.

I love the pairing of halloumi and chorizo together. It’s a match made in heaven. If you can’t find cured Spanish chorizo, you can use fresh Mexican chorizo or even pepperoni.

Serve with a simple green salad and avocado for the ultimate keto brunch or easy low-carb dinner.
