Ingredients

  • 8 8 eggeggs
  • 5 oz. 150 g bacon, in slices
  • cherry tomatoes (optional)
  • fresh parsley (optional)

Instructions

  1. Fry the bacon in a pan on medium high heat until crispy. Put aside on a plate. Leave the rendered fat in the pan.
  2. Use the same pan to fry the eggs. Place it over medium heat and crack your eggs into the bacon grease (you can also crack them into a measuring cup and carefully pour into the pan to avoid splattering of hot grease).
  3. Cook the eggs any way you like them. For sunny side up - leave the eggs to fry on one side and cover the pan with a lid to make sure they get cooked on top. For eggs cooked over easy - flip the eggs over after a few minutes and cook for another minute. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and fry them at the same time.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.

Tip!

Step up your bacon game with organic bacon if you can find it… it is tastier and has fewer additives.

    Hi. I am a Muslim and so cant eat bacon. What can I use to replace bacon please?

    May I suggest turkey bacon? I'm not a Muslim, but my understanding is that Muslims cannot eat anything with pork. Turkey bacon does not contain pork, so you should be able to. Look for a halaal approved stamp, and if you have a problem finding that in a regular grocery store, try an Arabic grocery store. There should be one somewhere near you, just look them up. Have a good day.

    I'm a LCHF beginner, I wonder if I eat egg every day, is it harmful for my health? Some researches show that egg contains a lot of protein & cholesterol, and we should eat 2-3 eggs/ week. Please give me an advice on this matter, tks

    It is true that the eggs contains a lot of cholesterol, however, it has never been proven that this cholesterol will enter in your blood. So, for now the researchers says that it is ok to eat as many as you like.

    Eggs can give you constipation so best to restrict if they affect you this way!
  16. Al
    Since 2012, I am gluten-free and embraced a LCHF diet/lifestyle and I am eating at least 4 eggs a day during breakfast... low-carb, moderate-protein and high-fat (meat including fats and pectin/inulin-riched veggies like cauliflower, cabbage) on lunch and dinner... so far my last lipid profile last Feb 2016 are within normal ranges...

    Hi Miranda!

    Yes, it's low carb :)

    But be sure to read the nutrition facts and check that the sausage doesn't have to much carbs.

    Make sure you are buying NITRATE-FREE bacon, folks! This website recommends bacon and other processed meats a lot, but if you are consuming that much nitrate, you are poisoning yourself. Even the World Health Organization states that no one should be consuming processed meats / nitrates as they are known to cause cancer.

    I have a blood disorder called hemochromotosis, where my blood stores too much iron. I am trying to adjust to this and was wondering if the keto diet would work. Doctors have been no help bc they are not taught about diet. They just want to poke an prod me as much as i allow. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    I dont know how you can have a vegan version of bacon and eggs! Any thing else would be just plain different. Perhaps try green leafy green veg fried in coconut oil?
  52. Una
    There might be hidden carbs and wheat as a percentage of filling in the sausages if they are not completely gluten free and the highest meat content possible. I'd be inclined to use mincemeat with a mixture of steak and pork - fresh from the butcher's - or ground beef as Americans tend to call it - and be sure. But your recipe just sounds wonderful and would say very low carb as opposed to no carb but then we're not aiming for no carb! Thanks so much.

    Hello everyone, I just started the Keto Diet and have been logging my foods using Livestrong's MyPlate .It is very useful as it instantly adds calories , carbs, fats, protein, etc. Does Diet Doctor offer something similar?

    Is antibiotic free bacon the same as organic bacon ? I've never seen organic bacon so I've always used the antibiotic free. I get it from Costco.
