Ingredients

  • ½ lb 220 g kale
  • 3 oz. 85 g butter
  • 6 oz. 170 g smoked pork belly or bacon
  • 1 oz. 28 g frozen cranberries
  • 1 oz. 28 g pecans or walnuts
  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Trim and chop the kale into large squares. (Pre-washed baby kale is a terrific shortcut.) Melt two thirds of the butter in a frying pan and fry the kale quickly on high heat until slightly browned around the edges.
  2. Remove the kale from the frying pan and set aside. Sear the pork belly or bacon in the same frying pan until crispy.
  3. Lower the heat. Return the sautéed kale to the pan and add the cranberries and nuts. Stir until warmed through. Reserve in a bowl.
  4. Turn up the heat and fry the eggs in the rest of the butter. Salt and pepper to taste. Plate two fried eggs with each portion of greens and serve immediately.

Tip!

Switch it up with other greens... cabbage, chard, or spinach offer tasty variations. Or, make it a side dish by eliminating the fried eggs.

Keto: Dairy free #6

Following a healthy dairy-free diet doesn’t have to mean depriving yourself — and this week’s meal plan is proof of that.

On the menu, we have some spice-heavy keto dishes like our Sindhi-style lamb curry. Additionally, there are some quick and easy weeknight favorites such as our tasty tuna zoodle salad and chicken stir-fry.

While following this plan, if you’re not a big fan of certain ingredients, feel free to swap them. If, for example, you don’t enjoy eating lamb, you could always substitute it for chicken or beef.

The same goes for vegetables. If there’s something you don’t fancy, change it for another low-carb veggie. Check out our visual vegetable guide for more inspiration.

Get ready to enjoy some of our favorite keto meals while staying below 20 grams of net carbs per day.

    This was delicious. I had to sub unsweetened dried cranberries because I couldn't find frozen. To add a little more flavor I topped it with a quick vinaigrette (red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper) and a little parmesan cheese. I called it "Greens, Eggs and Ham" and even my kids gobbled it up.

    Since I can't seem to get hold of any kale around here (in Estonia), what would be a good subsitute?

    You can use any leafy green vegetable like spinach, bok choy or collards to name a few.

    This is a beautiful dish. The only thing I didn't like was the amount of kale per portion, too much in my opinion. Other than that, it's very tasty :)

    4 oz (about 113 g) is only 1.3 g net carbs

    I just made this with leftover juicy pork chops, and added a few chopped cherry tomatoes (didn't have any cranberries) and it is delicious! This is one of my favorites now, a perfect brunch.

    Super breakfast! I used smokey bacon, spinach, coconut butter, and cumin. Will be one of my favourites. Thank you DD!
