Keto: Bacon appreciation week #1

The rumors are true! Since bacon is full of protein and fat with no carbs, you can eat bacon every day on a keto diet.

This week, we highlight our favorite recipes that include — you guessed it — bacon. In this meal plan, you will enjoy recipes like Keto cheeseburger meatloaf, Keto cobb salad, and Crispy bacon and kale with fried eggs.

What is it that makes bacon so addictive? Is it the aroma? Is it the sound of the bacon sizzling in the pan or the sight of the beautifully crisp, fatty meat? Perhaps you would agree that it’s the first salty, smoky bite. It’s no wonder why bacon is loved by many.

Pro tip: Make sure to buy good quality bacon without sugar. Check out our bacon guide for cooking tips and more helpful information. You can also mix it up by using turkey bacon or beef bacon in place of pork bacon.

    Regarding the recipe for "rice" pudding -- I was skeptical but tried it...wow, this was way more like real rice pudding than I expected! It wasn't as hearty, more light, but I found that to be a good thing. My family and I celebrated Bodhi Day (Buddha's enlightenment) on Dec 8th and rice pudding is kind of traditional...this was a good replacement. Thank you :)

    This recipe is great for those who want a 'sweet' dessert but don't want to add any kind of sweetener. Love it!!

    Do you think there's any way to thicken it up? It tastes great but is a little runny.

    I'm skeptical as I don't like cottage cheese, but I'm definitely going to try this, it looks sooo good!

    If you want it thicker, strain it. For those who don’t like it, you might try adding a little sweetener. I do. And cut back on the vanilla which I found over powering.

    I meant strain the cottage cheese before adding it in...

    I love cottage cheese but I didn't care for this. Not sweet enough.

    You may want to add a touch of sweetener to taste. https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/keto/sweeteners#top3

    can you make this with Ricotta cheese instead?

    We have not tested this with ricotta, but it can work well as a substitute for cottage cheese, generally speaking.

    I've made this twice. Much better the second time, when I rinsed and strained the curds before adding them. Tastes less "cheesey" and more like the real thing. I like mine with about 2 Tbsp of granular sweetener per 6 servings.
