Quick & easy

Italian Meatballs

1 pound ground beef, or ground meat of choice

1 tsp garlic

½ tsp basil

½ tsp rosemary

½ tsp oregano

½ tsp salt

½ tsp black pepper

¼ tsp all purpose seasoning

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a bowl. 

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.

 

Cream Cheese Crepes

Makes about 6 crepes if using an 8” pan

4 ounces cream cheese

4 eggs

1 Tbs water

¼ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp vanilla extract

Pinch of salt

Butter or ghee for cooking

Blend all ingredients thoroughly in a blender ensuring there are no cream cheese clumps.

Heat your non-stick pan to medium-low heat.

Melt about ½ tsp butter.

Pour some of the batter into your heated pan and swirl to fill to the edges.

Let cook about 2-3 minutes or until somewhat set on top, flip and continue to cook for another 30 seconds.

Enjoy as is or fill and wrap or fold with your favorite fillings.

Filling idea options:

Soft plain or herbed butter

Soft cream cheese
Cooked bacon bits and cream cheese mixed together

Cooked sausage and cheese

*You can make this without baking soda, but the reaction from combining the baking soda and cream cheese creates a creamier and slightly fluffier end product that will remind you more of a traditional crepe instead of an egg pancake.

Philly Cheesesteak

Makes 2 sandwiches

4 pieces of your favorite carnivore bread (this goes well with chicken buns)

12-16 ounces boneless ribeye or flank

2-4 pieces of provolone

2 tsp onion flakes or powder

Salt

Black Pepper

1 tsp butter

Freeze your steak 20 minutes. 

Remove from freezer and slice as thin as you can.

Season your meat with onion, salt and black pepper.

Make your steak into 2 piles.

Heat your cast iron to medium-high heat.

Once your pan is hot, grease with butter.

Take your 2 piles of meat and sear them in the hot buttered pan.

Do not stir them in the pan, you want them to keep the shape they are in.

After they have a nice sear on one side, take a spatula and carefully flip them over.

Top meat piles with a slice of cheese on each stack. Cover with a lid or a piece of foil over the pan and let the cheese melt.

Once the cheese is melted, take your pile of meat and stack it in between your carnivore bread.

Eggs Benedict

Serves 2

4 pieces of your favorite carnivore bread (this dish goes best with chicken buns)

4 thick slices of sugar free ham

4 slices of cooked bacon (optional)

4 eggs, fried or poached

1 batch homemade hollandaise sauce

Paprika or hot sauce

Prepare all your ingredients. 

The best way to poach eggs is by ensuring the water is simmering hot and add a dash of vinegar to prevent eggs from shredding. Using fresh eggs is best, but not necessary. Do not salt the water, this will cause the whites to shred. When placing the eggs in water, first crack them into a small cup or ramekin, then drop them in carefully and as close to the water as you can. Let cook for about 3-4 minutes. Remove from the water and set aside until ready to use.

You can also just pan fry your eggs, if you don’t care to have poached eggs. Either way it’s delicious!

Layer from the bottom to the top: carnivore bread, ham, bacon, poached egg, hollandaise sauce all topped with a sprinkle of paprika or hot sauce for color.

Feel free to get creative and change the meats to sausage patties or turkey slices; you could even add a slice of cheese!

Chili Stew

Serves 2-4

2 pounds ground beef or chili meat

2 cups beef broth, or 1 cup bone broth jello and 1 cup water

1 Tbs apple cider vinegar or mustard

¼ cup chili powder

1 Tbs salt

½ Tbs black pepper

½ tsp salt free all purpose seasoning

1 tsp hot sauce (optional)

Mix all ingredients into the slow cooker.

Cook on high for 1 hour. Stir at the 1 hour mark.

Continue to cook on high for 2 more hours or cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Serve with sour cream and shredded cheese if desired.

Also, goes well with chicken and cheese muffins.

 

Deli Sandwich

Makes 2 sandwiches

4 pieces of your favorite carnivore bread (bacon weave, chicken bun, cloud bread)

2 slices swiss cheese

2 slices pepper jack, muenster or cheddar

2 ounces corned beef or pastrami, sliced thin

2 ounces salami, sliced thin

2 ounces roast beef, sliced thin

Brown mustard or mayo (optional)

Layer all ingredients onto your bread of choice. Feel free to switch the meat and cheese options up to your favorite deli meats and cheeses.

If you want the sandwich hot, lay the meats with cheeses on top onto a parchment lined sheet pan and broil on low for about 1 minute while keeping a close eye on it. Or you can heat the meat up in a pan and top with cheese when layering the sandwiches.
Even better if you have some hot and salty beef broth to dip the hot sandwich in!

 

Easiest Meatloaf

Serves 2-4
2 pounds ground beef

2 whole eggs

2 tsp salt

2 tsp black pepper

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp salt free all purpose seasoning

1 Tbs mustard

Paprika

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all ingredients except paprika and mix very thoroughly.

Press into a loaf pan, if using.

If not using a loaf pan, you can just shape the meat into a loaf or whatever shape you want and bake on a sheet pan.

Top meatloaf with paprika for a nice crust coating and color.

Bake for 1 ½ hours.

Let cool 5 minutes, slice and enjoy!

Sausage, Egg and Cheese Sammie

Makes 3 sammies
6 sausage patties, homemade or store bought 

4 eggs

½ Tbs cream, optional

¼ tsp salt

3 slices of your favorite cheese

3-6 slices of bacon, cooked (Optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk eggs with cream and salt. Pour into a 8” X 8” silicone pan.

Bake for 15 minutes. Remove eggs from pan and slice into 3 strips.

Cook sausage accordingly.

Layer sausage with cheese, folded egg slice, cooked bacon and second sausage piece.

Gravlax Stack

2 pieces of your favorite carnivore bread (I like chicken buns for this recipe)

2-4 ounces cream cheese

2-4 ounces gravlax (smoked salmon)

2 eggs, poached, soft boiled or fried

Salt

Black pepper, garnish

Paprika, garnish

Spread the cream cheese onto your 2 pieces of carnivore bread.

Place on a plate and layer the gravlax slices on top of the cream cheese.

Top gravlax with an egg on each stack.

Sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika.

This pairs really well topped with hollandaise sauce.

Grilled Cheese

Makes 1 sandwich
Your favorite carnivore bread (Chicken buns or bacon weave crusts work best for this recipe)

2-4 ounces of your favorite gooey cheese or a combination of cheeses (cheddar, mozzarella, pepperjack, brie, etc.) *Please note, 4 ounces of cheese is a THICK amount of cheese!*

Making a carnivore grilled cheese is just as easy as making your “traditional” grilled cheese!

Heat your pan to medium-high heat. (Medium heat if you are using 4 ounces of cheese)

No butter should be needed! Especially if you’re using bacon weaves!

Heat the inside part of your “bread” for about 30-45 seconds.

Flip your bread over and layer your cheese and top with the other heated up piece of “bread”.

Grill your sandwich until the cheese starts getting melted. Carefully flip sandwich over to melt the other half of the cheese.

Remove from pan and enjoy!
