Easy American Breakfast for my kids who love Bob Evans’ Everything Breakfast, but low carb and lazy featuring bacon, sausage, ham, eggs, cheese and hollandaise sauce. This meatlover scrambled eggs recipe serves a whole family with one swoop. Mega Protein Bowl.
- 1 dozen eggs
- 1 lb Sausage
- 1 lb cubed ham
- 1 lb Bacon
- 2 cups of Shredded Cheddar
- 1 packet of Knorrs Hollandaise Sauce
- 1 cup milk or heavy whipping cream
- 6 TBSP of margarine or butter
- In a large skillet on medium high heat, cook the sausage and crumble it by breaking it up and stirring as it cooks until sausage is almost done. Cut the bacon into halves, and add that. Cook for a couple minutes until bacon is almost done. Add the ham cubes. Cook another minute or two. Drain excess grease if there's a lot of it. It's ok to keep a little grease in there. If you are from the south, you might want to save the grease in a container in your fridge as a "seasoning" for other foods.
- Reduce heat to low heat (or medium low heat). Crack the eggs, all 12 of them, into the meat and stir with a whisk or fork. Some people might crack these in a bowl beforehand and beat them with a whisk or fork, or for psychopaths, an electric hand-mixer (why dirty that?). But I prefer to do mine right there in the skillet so I don't have to wash the bowl later. Add 2 TBSP of Butter or Margarine.
- In a small microwave safe bowl (I suppose you could use the same bowl you mixed raw egg in if you did that), plop in 4 TBSP of butter or margarine (or 1/4 cup), and then add one cup of milk or cream. Place in microwave for 2 minutes. Check on eggs at this point and stir that a bit. Then remove the bowl from microwave and Stir. If butter is fully melted, add Hollandaise Sauce packet and whisk. Microwave for another minute at a time until desired thickness. Keep an eye on the eggs through this process. Once the eggs are fully cooked, add the cheddar to the skillet and stir/mix occasionally until the cheddar melts. Plate the eggs and top with Hollandaise.

Where did I get this recipe?
My oldest kid loves Bob Evan’s Everything Breakfast. So one day, he had a hankering for that breakfast, and I couldn’t afford Bob Evans for everyone, so I did what any mom in that situation would do, I tried to mimic the meal. It’s one of his favorites.
Now the Bob Evan’s version has more eggs (3 eggs per serving rather than 2) and they add tomatoes, hashbrowns, and a biscuit. I decided to keep it down to the meats and cheese, but as with anything scrambled eggs, you can add anything to it.

Process for this favorite American Breakfast
For the most part…
- Grab a skillet and cook your meats. I usually start with sausage, crumble it, add bacon, then add ham cubes.
- Drain some of the grease if it’s that bad but then add the eggs. Scramble it with something that won’t ruin your skillet.
- Then make the Hollandaise using a microwave safe bowl microwaving butter and cream until melted, mixing in the sauce packet, and microwaving 2 minutes at a time until desire thickness. Usually, it’s a 4 to 6 minute event.
- Add cheese to the eggs. You can mix Hollandaise sauce throughout (it will be gooey if you do), or you can plate it with Hollandaise and a lil more cheese on top.
So that’s 4 steps when I type it all out, but in the picture, it’s really three easy steps.
This meal is SUPER HIGH PROTEIN and packs some heat with the Calcium & Potassium, but at the cost of super high calories, saturated fat and sodium.

One would think just being eggs, meat and cheese that this sucker would have low to nothing net carbs, but the more I delve into nutritional values, the more I realize how small numbers add up.
With the recommended ingredients from Walmart List, and with this entire recipe divided into 6 servings, each serving should have 13.2 Net Carbs.
Breakdown of the carbs…
- Ham 27
- Whipping Cream 16
- Cheddar 16
- Hollandaise Packet 20
Total Net Carbs in the entire meal: 79
You can save carbs and knock it down to 7.3 Net Carbs per serving by omitting ham cubes entirely, and halving out the cheese to one cup instead of two. You do lose about 7.5 g of protein with that making it about 33.5 g per serving instead of 51 g per serving.
