Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Start making the low-carb parmesan croutons, if you don't have them on hand already.
  2. Stir together mayonnaise and mustard and set aside.
  3. Place the lettuce onto two plates. Top the lettuce with the onion, sliced pickle, pastrami, and a generous amount of the mustard mayonnaise.
  4. Melt the butter over medium heat, in a large, non-stick frying pan. For sunny side up, add the eggs to the pan, and fry for about 2-3 minutes. For over-easy, gently flip the eggs over with a spatula, and cook for about 30 more seconds. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Place the eggs and the parmesan croutons on the salad plate, and serve immediately.

Tip!

You can make this salad with any kind of meat – leftover lamb, turkey or grilled chicken! Or try it with freshly fried bacon or ham. You could also substitute the lettuce for arugula.

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.
