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.

    Ever heard of the famous recipe from Piedmont, Italy called "bagna cauda"?

    It's a dip made with butter, garlic, anchovies and walnut or hazelnut oil. Sometimes they add cream, too. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bagna_càuda

    I mention this recipe because dietdoctor just posted the news of the oldest living person, who comes from Piedmont. And this sauce recipe (made for dipping raw vegetables and boiled eggs) is frequently eaten in that part of the world.

    It's absolutely delicious and hope to see it as part of the diet doctor recipe index.

    Total fail. Could not get this to thicken at all. Disappointing.

    I love aioli! It marries very well with meats, especially sausages.

    Melissa, despite the French version of the original "allioli" (literally "garlic and oil") has egg yolk acting as an emulsifier, it's easy to end up with a liquidy sauce if too much oil is added at once. Also, make sure to use a hand blender if you haven't :)

    I’m new here. How do I read this? I don’t want to eat more than I should. It is 1g per tablespoon? Teaspoon?

    I’m new here. How do I read this? I don’t want to eat more than I should. It is 1g per tablespoon? Teaspoon?

    The nutrition information is 1g per serving. There are 4 servings in this recipe, so you would divide the recipe into 4 equal amounts.

    The secret to making mayo/allioli is to use a stick blender. Put two small eggs/one large egg (not straight from the fridge). Add a cup of your favourite oil (I used a mixture of melted butter and coconut oil, just warm not hot).Add the oil in at once! Add teaspoon of salt and two teaspoons of vinegar. Put stick blender onto egg yolks and hold blender down for two minutes. I promise you this works! I have never managed to make mayo by drizzling the oil. Good luck Rakel and Melissa!

    You should fix the instructions. There is no yogurt in the recipe. Nor should there be. Perhaps you should call this Ghee Mayonnaise. That is what it is after all.

    This recipe includes 3 tbsp Greek yogurt.
