Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon cooking fat tallow, butter, ghee
  • 12 ounces ground beef
  • 3 small eggs
 Instructions
  1. Divide the meat into three 4-ounce portions.
  2. Flatten each one into a patty with your hands, then place on a cutting board and open up the center hole. Press and pinch edges together, no cracks should show.
  3. Warm a skillet over high heat and add the cooking fat. Use tallow to keep this recipe dairy-free or cook in butter or ghee if you like. Any fat will do.
  4. Support the meat with your free hand while firmly lifting the ring up with a spatula and arrange on the skillet. Repeat until all meat is cooking. Adjust the opening if needed.
  5. While the meat cooks, crack open the eggs and add them one by one to the center of the meat. Continue cooking until the meat is nicely browned, about 3 minutes.
  6. Flip quickly. Cook the second side for about half as long or until eggs set.

Creamy Cheese Soup

8 ounces cream cheese

4 ounces shredded cheddar

1 cup chicken broth

1 tsp garlic powder

¼ tsp salt or more to taste

¼ tsp black pepper


Combine cream cheese and broth in a pot and heat up to soften the cheese on low heat. This will take about 10 minutes.

After the cream cheese has softened with the broth, use an immersion blender to smooth the soup out. Or you can just pour into the blender and blend for 1 minute.

Add soup back to the pot on low heat. Stir in seasonings and slowly stir in the shredded cheese.

Continue to cook on low while stirring until cheese is melted.

If the soup is too thick for you, you can add more broth.


This soup is great on it’s own or add your own toppings or mix ins! Good ideas are bacon bits, cheese chips or diced chicken!

4 ounces full fat yogurt or sour cream

2 tsp mustard

Use a zip bag to pipe in filling into the eggs.
