We’re whipping up keto Eggs Benedict with our new favorite keto croissants!
You’re going to love this twist on the classic eggs benedict. First of all, can we talk about Hero Bread’s newest creation? Hero Bread made Croissants! And they are amazing – so buttery and flakey, they are everything you’ve been missing on keto.
I have a confession that croissants are one of my favorite foods. If I’m going to splurge on keto, it’s with a croissant. As far as I know, these keto croissants are the closest you can get to the real thing. In fact, side by side with a real croissant, I don’t know if you could tell the difference.
Turn these croissants into eggs benedict and you’ll be in heaven. With only 2 grams of net carbs for each croissant, how can you go wrong?
How to make keto eggs benedict
This recipe isn’t hard to make but timing everything can be a little tricky. You need to make sure you have all your ingredients in place and ready to go when you start cooking.
I’m not the best at poaching eggs. I’ll admit they aren’t the prettiest (if you have any tricks, please pass them on)! I went with this Martha Stewart method and I think I did okay. In the past, I’ve just ended up with egg drop soup!
The hollandaise sauce can also be a little intimidating if you’ve never made it before. This blender recipe from The Kitchn is my go-to recipe and it’s never let me down.
When getting ready to make the keto eggs benedict, you need to follow this order.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Poached the eggs and set them aside.
- Cut the croissants in half and warm in the oven.
- Top the croissants with prosciutto and brie.
- Get prepared to make the hollandaise sauce – separate the eggs, melt the butter, and squeeze lemon juice
- Put the croissants back in the oven to melt the brie.
- While the croissants are in the oven, make the hollandaise sauce.
- As soon as you remove the croissants from the oven, top with poached eggs and fresh hollandaise sauce.

Tips for making the best keto eggs benedict
- Timing is everything with this recipe. Make sure you’re prepared so everything flows smoothly and assembly is a breeze.
- If you want a thinner hollandaise sauce, use 16 tablespoons of melted butter instead of 12 tablespoons. Hollandaise is best when served fresh.
- Try fried eggs instead of poached. This is a great option if you’re terrible at poaching eggs like me, haha!
- If you want to make the tomato salad pictured with the eggs benedict, it’s a pint of cherry tomatoes cut in half, a quarter of a chopped red onion, sliced fresh basil, olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper. The amounts don’t have to be exact but it pairs nicely. This recipe is inspired by a local restaurant in my area that has the best brunch!
- These eggs benedict are rich, FYI! If you want to reduce the calories and make them not quite so filling, you can reduce the amount of hollandaise sauce you use.
Keto life will never be the same!
I just want to say “thank you” to Hero Bread for making croissants. They make my heart happy! I hope you enjoy the croissants and keto eggs benedict as much as I did!
Here’s what my Hip sidekick, Rachel, had to say about this keto eggs benedict recipe:
“This is hands down the most incredible keto brunch I’ve ever treated myself to! Every element of this recipe is an absolute delight, from the perfectly flaky croissants to the lusciously melted brie, not to mention the heavenly homemade hollandaise sauce. This Eggs Benedict is an absolute triumph that has won my heart and taste buds over completely!”
