Deconstructed scotch eggs ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿฅฉ

Weโ€™ve made carnivore scotch eggs before but this is an easier version for everyday!

They are made in a flash, and in reality arenโ€™t as glamorous as portrayed on the internet. Mine routinely fall apart but they are yummy none the less.

Also called โ€œeggs in a holeโ€ this is a fun twist on ground meat with eggs and can be eaten as is or upgraded, like with raw cheese, or additional bacon ๐Ÿฅ“

You can use any ground meat you love- our favorite is Apsey Farms ground beef (use code HELEN10) , they also have ground chicken and pork which is corn and soy free ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

To make you need:

For each piece:

4-5 ounces of meat ๐Ÿฅฉ

1 egg ๐Ÿณ

Optionally: your favorite pork or beef bacon, raw cheese (I love raw sheeps feta or pecorino) ๐Ÿง€

Animal fat for frying ๐Ÿณ – I love tallow or butter ๐Ÿงˆ

How to:

Begin by heating up your favorite fat in a pan, Iโ€™m currently loving wagyu tallow ๐Ÿคฉ

Prepare your meat, form little Patties and use your hands to make a hole in the middle; about 1.5 Inches in diameter so that the egg fits. Optionally you can even crumble some cheese into the meat dough.

Sear the meat, after about 1-2 minutes, crack an egg into the little hole and season with salt, continue to cook for 2-3 minutes. Then flip and cook another 2-3 minutes until egg sets!

I like to top this with some bacon and cheese!

Carnivore Viennese Schnitzel

As Germans, schnitzel is one of our favorite foods, and we have posted a pork version which is more common in Germany. However, traditionally, schnitzel is actually a dish from Vienna, Austria where itโ€™s made with veal cutlets that are thinly pounded and breaded, super yummy ๐Ÿ˜

I was lucky to get my hands on some so we decided to give them a little carnivore twist! We breaded these in pork rinds and really enjoyed them ๐Ÿคฏ

To make you need (per portion):

10 ounces of thinly sliced or pounded veal cutlets ๐Ÿฎ

1 large egg ๐Ÿฅš

Pork panko ๐Ÿท- about 3-4 tablespoons

Lard for frying

Seasoning of your choice: we love salt and white pepper, optionally onion and garlic powder

How to:

Make sure your cutlets are thin, if they are too thick for your liking you can pound them with a meat tenderizer . Season the meat from all sides

Preheat a large pan with plenty of lard.

Set up your breading station, beat an egg in one shallow bowl and put pork panko in another.

Next, place the cutlets in the egg and then roll them in the panko. Place into the hot lard and fry for 7-12 minutes on each side until crispy brown. Itโ€™s easier to flip them with forks, and make sure there is always enough hot lard in the pan. Sometimes we add a bit more.

Garnish with lemon slices and optionally serve with this keto cranberry sauce ๐Ÿคฉ

This also works well for chicken or veal cutlets !

Loaded Carnivore Chicken Sliders ๐Ÿ”

I really love burgers, which is perfect for this way of eating ๐Ÿ” I like to play around with the variations so today I made chicken sliders ๐Ÿ˜Ž

These are garnished with water Buffalo mozzarella, crispy pork belly and egg yolk ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿฅ“ but the options are endless!

Burgers are my sneaky way to incorporate more organ meats, so I chose an ancestral chicken blend that includes some chicken heart! Heart is a good source of CoQ10!

I also like to purchase corn and soy free chicken- my favorite is Apsey Farms (you can use code HELEN10) because a chicken that is fed itโ€™s species appropriate diet will generate a healthier meat for us to eat ๐Ÿ˜Š

To make you need:

Ground chicken ๐Ÿ” (regular or ancestral) – 4 ounces per patty

Your favorite seasonings- I used salt and white pepper ๐Ÿง‚

Ghee for frying or an airfryer!

To garnish :

Pork belly or bacon ๐Ÿฅ“

Eggs ๐Ÿณ I love the yolks

Pickles or Mayo for non-carnivores ๐Ÿฅ’

Your favorite cheese: cheddar, mozzarella or feta are all yummy options! I like to opt for A2, grassfed and ideally raw cheese ๐Ÿง€

How to:

Season your meat and form your sliders. If you plan to airfry, I would preheat that to 400ยฐ. If you opt for pan searing, heat up some ghee in a pan!

Sear or air fry the meat about 5 minutes on each side, depending on how thick the patties are. While those are cooking, prepare your garnish. You can sear the pork belly or bacon slices in the pan, it should take about the same time as the burgers.

Slice your cheese (you can place it onto the warm meat to melt) , and cook your eggs/yolk, although the joke can be enjoyed separately.

Assemble your plate and enjoy ๐Ÿคฉ

Carnivore-ish Crunchy Sablefish ๐ŸŒฎ

Crispy fish is such an iconic summer comfort food ๐Ÿ˜ so we decided to give them a high fat and protein animal based twist ๐Ÿ™

Fish sticks are typically made with leaner white fish like Cod ๐Ÿค and you can of course swap those but we opted for sablefish aka black cod since itโ€™s high fat and full of omegas !! Fat is fuel in this way of eating ๐Ÿฝ

The crumb is made from egg and chicken flour from Carnivore crisps, and itโ€™s all married together with an mct oil Mayo Tartar sauce and crunchy onions ๐Ÿ˜‰

We opted to not bread the fish to save the skin which is so healthy, but instead top it off with the crunchy crumbs ๐Ÿ˜‰

To make you need:

For the fish:

6 ounces sable fish ๐Ÿ 

Salt ๐Ÿง‚

Butter for searing or an air-fryer ๐Ÿ˜‰

The onions:

Thinly sliced onion (about to 1/4 large) ๐Ÿง…

Lard for searing ๐Ÿงˆ

Salt ๐Ÿง‚

The Tartar:

Your favorite Mayo (2 tablespoons) – we love MCT Mayo

Pickles thinly diced ๐Ÿฅ’

The crumbs:

Lard for frying

1 egg ๐Ÿฅš

1 tablespoon chicken flour ๐Ÿ“, we use carnivore crisps !

How to:

Begin by letting the fish come to room temperature, preheat the airfryer or butter in a pan. Then pat the fish dry, salt it from all sides and cook about 8 minutes.

While thatโ€™s going, heat up lard in 2 pans. In one pan, sear the slices of onion until they brown, season with salt.

In the other, make the breadcrumbs. Combine the egg and flour in a bowl and then bake like a pancake. Scramble the dough and let the bits get crispy! You may need to add more lard along the way. Optionally season with some garlic or pepper!

Next, make the tartar sauce- simply combine Mayo with some diced pickles!

Finally, assemble everything, super simple- just top the fish with the onions, sauce and crunchy crumbs ๐Ÿค—

Bacon Wrapped Chicken ๐Ÿฅ“

Another easy carnivore favorite! Since chicken breast is a very lean meat, itโ€™s not optimal for a high fat diet but my family likes chicken breast, so we find fun ways to increase the fat intake!! Bacon to the rescue, and who doesnโ€™t love bacon ๐Ÿฅ“

This recipe is so simple and doesnโ€™t require a lot of time or ingredients. We chose chicken breasts from Apsey Farms which are corn and soy free! You can use code HELEN10 to save! This also works with boneless chicken thighs if youโ€™re looking for a higher fat and even juicier option ๐Ÿ˜ they also have corn and soy free bacon ๐Ÿฅ“

We like to serve these with a side of eggs and butter!

To make you need (2 portions):

1 pound chicken breast or thigh- cut into 4 pieces ๐Ÿ—

4 slices of bacon (1 for each piece of chicken) ๐Ÿฅ“

Salt and white pepper ๐Ÿง‚

Lard or ghee for searing ๐Ÿงˆ

How to:

Begin by cutting the chicken and patting it dry. Season with salt and optionally white pepper and wrap each piece with bacon. Fasten with tooth picks

Heat up a bit of animal fat on the stove in a pan and sear the chicken about 10 minutes on each side!

Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy ๐Ÿ˜‰

Carnivore Pudding ๐Ÿจ

Pudding is one of my favorite childhood comfort foods and I remember how excited we were when my mom or grandma made a batch of pudding, it tastes best warm with fresh whipped cream and a nice berry compote ๐Ÿ˜

While not Dr. Oetkers (a famous German pre-packaged Pudding mix) Pudding, this carnivore version is quite tasty and perfect for a high – fat protein forward diet ๐Ÿคฉ plus whipped cream is technically carnivore ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

For those who are not so strict, you could enjoy this with some homemade cranberry sauce ๐Ÿ’

This is actually how pudding was made before mixes and starch were available!

To make you need:

16 ounces of cream ๐Ÿฅ› – raw, A2 is the best tolerated

6 Egg yolks ๐Ÿณ

Ground Vanilla ๐Ÿฐ

2 teaspoons gelatin

Allulose or monk fruit sweetener to taste ๐Ÿ‘…

How to:

On low heat, heat up the cream gently on the stove. While that is cooking, blend the yolks, vanilla, gelatin and sweetener in a seperate container.

When the cream is hot (it will lightly be steaming), gently mix in the egg mixture. Itโ€™s critical that you do this slowly and mix well since the eggs can curdle which does not get the nice smooth pudding feel. The whisking can take about 10 minutes.

After the whisking is over and the pudding has started to thicken, remove the pudding from the heat and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then whisk and pour into small ramekins, cool for 3-5 hours to set.

If you want you can whip fresh cream to top the pudding with for a special treat ๐Ÿจ

Simple Steak and Eggs ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿฅฉ

This is one of my favorite lunches but works great for any meal of the day ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฅฉ๐Ÿณ

I have been loving this grassfed wagyu skirt steak from Apsey Farms! You can use my code HELEN10 to save! Itโ€™s so juicy and I love how well the family cares for their animals and the planet ๐ŸŒŽ

I love to use the yolk as a dip for my steak and add lots of butter!

To make you need:

1 skirt steak (8-10 ounces)๐Ÿฅฉ

1-2 eggs ๐Ÿฅš

Ghee or tallow for frying

Butter for serving ๐Ÿงˆ

How to:

Heat up your pan, and pat your steak dry. Ideally you have already let it come to room temperature and salted it ahead of time, this helps get a nice crust. If not thatโ€™s okay too, it will still be yummy !

Add ghee or tallow to the pan. When itโ€™s hot, sear the steak for 1-2 mins on each side depending on thickness for rare. If you want it more well done then cook it 2-4 mins. Remove the meat and let it rest a few mins while you fry your eggs in the same pan.

Serve with butter ๐Ÿงˆ

Salmon Strips with Tartar Sauce ๐Ÿฃ

On the carnivore diet (and any diet) itโ€™s critical to get enough essential fatty acids like the ones found in seafood ๐Ÿฃ

King salmon is a fabulous choice and is packed with omega 3s DHA and EPA! We try to include it in our diet at least weekly, and I have perfected the quickest and easiest way to make this chore of eating all the nutrients into a treat ๐ŸŒˆ and the skin gets very crispy too (make sure to eat it since that is where much Of the fatty acids and collagen is) ๐Ÿ˜…

The fastest way is to cut the salmon filets into strips but you can also use the whole filet, just adjust the cooking time.

I like to use my outdoor air-fryer to avoid any fishy indoor smells, but you can also pan sear, I would use some butter to fry them!

If youโ€™re not a strict carnivore I highly recommend my moms super simple Tartar sauce, carnivores can make a hollandaise (recipe coming) or Jahr use butter ๐Ÿงˆ

For 1 portion:

8 ounces king salmon cut into 2 ounce strips ๐Ÿฃ

Salt for seasoning ๐Ÿง‚

Optional butter for frying ๐Ÿงˆ

Tartar sauce:

2 tablespoons MCT Oil Mayo ๐Ÿฅ›

2-3 diced pickle slices ๐Ÿฅ’

1 teaspoon mustard

How to:

Preheat the air-fryer to 400ยฐF for about 5 minutes or alternatively heat up butter in a pan.

Slice the salmon and pat it dry, this is key for crispy skin. Salt it with high quality sea salt ๐Ÿง‚

Cook the salmon for 5 minutes total, flipping halfway. This way itโ€™s cooked but still stays moist. While itโ€™s cooking, make your sauce by mixing all the ingredients together!

Enjoy your salmon strips with the dip!

Carnivore Pancakes ๐Ÿฅž

These carnivore pancakes are made in a flash and are sure to help you get in those healthy fats, proteins abs even some collagen via gelatin ๐Ÿ˜‰

We love to top these off with butter or cream fraiche which is safe for most people with lactose or dairy protein intolerance ๐Ÿงˆ

For those who are okay with a sweet taste, we recommend drizzling with your favorite low carb maple syrup or even homemade carnivore caramel or cranberry sauce ๐Ÿ’

Now letโ€™s getting cooking ๐Ÿ˜‰

For each large pancake you need:

2 eggs ๐Ÿฅš

1 tablespoon melted butter ๐Ÿงˆ

1 scoop gelatin powder (we love perfect supplements brand) ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Optional: fresh ground vanilla

Ghee for frying (lard works well too) , we love vanilla infused ghee!

How to:

Beat 2 eggs, warmed butter, and gelatin in a bowl. Optionally you can grate in fresh vanilla!

Heat up ghee in a pan, and fry the batter for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown. Be careful when flipping!

When itโ€™s ready, top work butter or cream fraiche (or homemade whipped cream, donโ€™t add sugar) and enjoy ๐Ÿ˜‰

Easy Peasy Pulled Brisket ๐Ÿฅฉ

I really love shredded roasts and this grassfed and regenerative brisket from Apsey Farms (use code HELEN10) really satisfies that craving ๐Ÿ˜…

This is a meal thatโ€™s super easy to prep and make, it requires little supervision and will nourish you !!

This recipe utilizes the instant pot, but can also be done in a slow cooker (it will just take a lot longer- about 8 hours!)

When finished, it can be crisped up in the pan with butter, Airfried to create the classic โ€œburned endsโ€ or turned into a carnivore noodle bowl with shirataki noodles and egg yolks, topped with sheeps milk parmesan cheese and butter ๐Ÿคฉ

To make you need:

1 brisket – this one is 2.5 lbs ๐Ÿฅฉ

3 dried bay leaves ๐Ÿƒ

Sea salt ๐Ÿง‚

A splash of apple cider vinegar

Optional- some bones for flavor

A pressure cooker

How to:

Add bay leaves, salt, a splash of ACV, the roast, optionally some bones, and water to the instant pot (water should cover the meat halfway) ๐Ÿฅฉ

Please do not trim any fat off the the meat, if itโ€™s too much for you, remove before serving, but the meat will dry out if you remove the fat before cooking!

Pressure cook on high for 2 hours and then on low for at least 2. The longer you cook on low, the more tender it will become!

When youโ€™re ready to eat, remove the meat from the broth, shred with forks and enjoy! My method of choice is to sear the meat in the fat cap, with some added flaked sea salt and butter ๐Ÿงˆ

I also like to save the broth- I strain it and store in the fridge overnight. You can then remove the fat layer and use that as tallow ๐Ÿ˜Š
