Carnivore Breakfast Biscuits (Inspired by Great Depression recipe)

Wonderful anytime of the day but perfect for mornings on the go. Also delicious smothered in butter or pate!
 
You will need: 
1 cupcake pan
a dozen eggs
enough chicken livers to place 1 in each cupcake round
1 cup shredded raw cheddar (optional)
as many slices of your favorite cured meat (salami pictured) as will allow you to line each cupcake round with them
1/2 stick soft butter
 
Makes 10 large biscuits
Prep time: 20 minutes
Bake time: 30 minutes
 
 
First share your chicken livers on a grill top or in a skillet. Cook out all moisture thoroughly. I’ve found the crispier the better! Then set aside.
 
Grease each cupcake round with butter then line each with a slice of cured meat. You can use 2 if you feel like adding extra structure to the biscuits.
 
In a mixing bowl blend your dozen eggs until smooth. If you wish to include cheese add to your eggs until blended. Then pour into your cupcake rounds until 3/4 full.
 
Then place a cooked chicken liver in the center of each biscuit round. Pop in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until puffy and golden brown on top.
 
Enjoy!

Goat Cheese Prosciutto Quiche

4 eggs

½ cup cream

4 ounce goat cheese

2 Tbs mayonnaise (optional)

2 Folio cheddar cheese shells or 4 ounces shredded cheese

3 ounces prosciutto

Pinch of salt


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Layer your 2 cheese shells in the bottom of a 6” sillicon round pan.

Bake cheese for 10 minutes.

Let cool.

Thoroughly whisk eggs, cream, mayo and salt together.

Once cheese crust has cooled, spread half the goat cheese onto the crust, layer with prosciutto and then layer the goat cheese and prosciutto again.

Slowly pour your egg mixture over the layers. 

Place your silicone pan on a sheet pan and bake covered with foil for 30 minutes.

Remove foil and bake for about 10 more minutes or until center is just set.

Let cool 10 minutes before slicing.


You can easily double this recipe to use a larger baking pan like a pie pan. If doing so, check at 40 minutes instead of 30 minutes.

Cornbread Stuffing

1 batch of Carnivore Cornbread 

Blend 10 ounces cooked chicken, 6 whole eggs, 2 ounces melted butter, ½ tsp baking soda and ½ tsp salt until smooth. Bake in a greased pan at 350 degrees from 30-50 minutes depending on pan size, until center is set and top is golden.


Gizzard mix

1 ½ pounds chicken hearts

1 ½ pounds chicken gizzards

1 Tbs salt

½ Tbs garlic

½ Tbs black pepper

2 cups water or broth


Stuffing mix

2 tsp thyme

2 tsp sage

2 tsp onion powder

2 tsp garlic

2 tsp salt

1 tsp rosemary

1 tsp black pepper

⅓ cup butter

2 eggs

1 cup broth


Add all gizzard ingredients to a slow cooker and let cook for at least 8 hours or overnight. Strain from broth and save broth for later.


Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Dice up your cornbread to your desired size. Pictured is about ¾” cubes.

For more traditional bagged/boxed stuffing, dice cornbread AND gizzards really small.

Place cornbread cubes on sheet pan and bake for 20 minutes to dry out.

Let cornbread cubes cool.

Heat up your 1 cup broth saved from earlier and add in butter. Stir until melted.

Turn off heat.

Mix in all other spices.

Let broth mixture cool 5-10 minutes.

Whisk egg into broth mixture once it is cooled.

Combine gizzard mixture with the cornbread cubes.

Stir in broth/egg mixture until all the bread has soaked up the liquid.

Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes with the lid on. 

Remove lid and cook 10 more minutes to get a crunchy crust on top.

Cornbread

10 ounces cooked chicken

6 whole eggs

2 ounces melted butter, plus extra for spreading on top

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Blend all ingredients until smooth in a blender.

Grease your 4 cup casserole dish or bread pan with butter or line with parchment paper.

Depending on your pan, the bread will take about 40 minutes. Check doneness at 30 minutes and if it is still wiggly and loose in the middle, let it continue cooking for 10 minutes.

Once you take the cornbread out of the oven, spread butter all over the top. As much as you want.

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

½ tsp salt

½ tsp black pepper

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.

Garlic Cloud Bread

Makes 6 cloud bread rounds

3 eggs, separated

⅛ tsp cream of tartar (optional)

¼ tsp garlic powder

3 Tbs cream cheese, sour cream, or thick yogurt

Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Do not miss this step!

Whisk the egg yolks with your dairy of choice, salt and garlic powder.

Whip egg whites with cream of tartar, if using, until stiff.

Carefully fold in the egg yolk mixture into the whites, only adding in a little bit of the yolk mixture at a time until it is all used up.

Spoon the mixture onto the parchment lined sheet pan into 6 rounds. Do not flatten! Leave them fluffy and thick looking because they will shrink once cooled down.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the egg is cooked all the way through. You do not want the rounds to look liquidy in the middle.

Let the rounds cool for at least 1 hour to improve the texture. They are even better if you can wait 4 hours.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge if not consuming that same day.

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!
