Carnivore Pizza Mini Rounds (Inspired by WWll recipe)

Great recipe for packed lunches or traveling!
 
You will need:
1 lbs ground beef
6 pieces pepperoni
1 cup shredded mozzarella
 
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 2 hours
Makes: 6
 
First mold 6 ground beef disks. I find they cook best if they are no thicker than 1/2 inch, and no larger than 4 inches across. Lay disks flat on a cookie sheet and pre bake for an hour and a half at 200 degrees. They should become very dehydrated and a rich dark color, as well as shrink some.
 
Then remove from the oven and place cheese and pepperoni on top and pop back in the oven until brown (around 20 min)
 
These also are wonderful bases for lots of creativity. So go crazy!
 
Enjoy!

Breakfast Egg Taco

4 soft chicken tortillas

8-12 eggs

1 Tbs butter

½ pound diced bacon, sausage or other leftover meat

4 ounces of your favorite cheese

Heat your pan to a medium heat.

Cook your meat of choice in the pan.

Add in the butter and mix in the eggs, salt and pepper. 

Continue to cook the eggs until they are set.

Stir in cheese until melted. Remove from heat.

If your tortillas are too firm to fold, heat them up slightly in a pan on medium-low heat.

Load your tortillas up with your scrambled egg filling. 

Serve with your favorite hot sauce or enjoy as is. 

You can also wrap these up in foil and take them with you. They hold fairly well.

Divide the meat into fours. Then divide each quarter into three to make evenly sized meatballs.

Roll into meatballs and place on a parchment lined sheet pan at least 1 inch apart.

Bake for 30-35 minutes.

Enjoy with carnivore egg noodles and garlic butter or alfredo sauce.

 

 These are great on their own as well.

Egg in a Burger Basket

1 pound ground beef, or any ground meat you like

2 eggs

Salt and pepper to taste

Take ½ pound ground meat and shape it into a large thin donut with a hole bigger than you would like. Shape the burger thinner than you would like because the meat will shrink and cook into a thick burger. Repeat with remaining burger meat.

Season your burgers and cook in a cast iron pan.

Once you flip your burger, let it cook one minute and carefully crack your egg in the middle.

Season your egg, if you’d like.

Cover with a lid and cook until desired egg doneness. Or you can cook low and slow if you don’t have a lid.

This goes really well with homemade hollandaise sauce.

Your Favorite Stuffed Burger

Makes 2 burgers 1 pound of your favorite ground meat (beef, turkey, lamb, bison, elk, etc.)

4 ounces of your favorite cheese (shredded cheese will be hard to work with, slices or soft cheese works better)

½ tsp salt

½ tsp pepper (optional)

 

Divide the ground meat into 2.

Shape the ground meat into a larger burger, wider than you would like it.

Place your favorite cheese in the center and wrap your burger meat around the cheese.

If you are using soft cheese, first make sure your cheese is in a patty shape and not crumbles. Then gently wrap your cheese with the burger meat.

If there are any holes, just grab some ground meat from another part of your burger and cover it up!

Re-shape your burger if you need to.

Grill or cook your burger the way you normally do, trying not to press on it too much.

These will take a little longer than normal to cook.
