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.

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!

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.

Prosciutto Skull

6 ounces prosciutto or your favorite ultra thinly sliced cured meat

1 plastic skull or foam head

Let your cured meat come to room temperature so it sticks to your skull easier.

Cover the edges of your plate with cured meat.

Lay skull on top and carefully layer all your dried meat around the skull in different directions making it look like peeling skin. Make sure to cover all of the skull.

Watch your guests squirm when attempting to take a slice!

Tamales

Tamale:

12 ounces cooked chicken, seasoned

1 whole egg

2 ounces tallow or fat of choice, melted

¼ tsp baking soda

 

Filling:

Use your own combination of sliced cheeses and already cooked meats. Ex: sliced steak, sliced chorizo sausage, chicken fajitas, etc.

Shredded cheese and crumbled meats do not work well with this recipe, they just make a big mess, but if you cook your ground beef into a patty that works a lot better.

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In your blender or food processor add chicken & baking soda and begin to blend with melted tallow.

Add in the egg while the blender is on.

Let your “dough” chill covered in the fridge until firm. (About 1-2 hours, or overnight)

 

Using a large piece of parchment paper, spread half of the batter in the middle in a rectangle shape about 1 inch thick.

Layer your slice of cheese and sliced meat in the center of the batter.

Using the parchment paper, carefully wrap the meat and cheese with the batter. Folding the parchment into the shape of your fillings. Fold in the last 2 flaps underneath the tamale to hold it closed.

Place on a sheet pan and bake for about 20 minutes. Let cool 3-5 minutes and unwrap the parchment paper.
