Simple scrambled eggs using an egg and two egg whites is a good egg recipe for diabetes, states About.com. Another one is a breakfast omelet using 3/4 cup of egg substitute or egg whites. First, sauté 1/2 cup of mushrooms, peppers, spinach or a combination of vegetables. Add 1 ounce of lean ham or low-fat cheese. Pour in the egg substitute, and finish the omelet.

Another diabetic-friendly recipe is an egg and ham breakfast burrito using eggs, egg whites, reduced-fat cheese and low-sodium ham, says the American Diabetes Association. Sauté 4 slices of ham, 1/4 cup of onion and 1/4 cup of green pepper, then add 4 eggs, 4 egg whites and 2 tablespoons of reduced-fat cheddar cheese. Stir until the eggs are cooked, then spoon the mixture into four corn tortillas. Top with salsa.

Diabetics can make a low-carb broccoli and cheese pie using eggs, cheese, skim milk, broccoli and chicken broth, says For Dummies. Cook broccoli in 1/2 cup of chicken broth over medium heat. Mix together 2 eggs whites, 1 egg, 1 cup skim milk, 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese and the cooked broccoli. Place the egg mixture in a pie pan and cook it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.
