Quick keto meals are the best dinner options. Add this fried eggs and bacon keto bowl recipe to your dinner menu this week.
Breakfast for dinner is the best way to do dinner. Am I right?
This low carb dinner idea is the best because not only can you eat this for dinner, but but the leftovers can be enjoyed for breakfast the next day too —two birds, one stone, one recipe sorta thing.
It’s fast, easy, delicious… as every keto recipe should be.
Is this just me, or is any recipe that screams bacon automatically interesting?
When I first went keto, I put bacon on everything. But now, 5+ years in, and I find it to be more of a tasty condiment than a mainstay. But goodness me, do I love it!
What’s great about this recipe is you can use any bacon you’d like from the fresh pork belly kind, to the Costco bacon crumbles (please tell me, you’ve tried Costco’s bacon crumbles).
If you’re thinking about making this recipe in the next few days, you can speed up the process by making your bacon before you make the rest of this recipe and save it in the fridge. Pre-cooking your bacon will make this recipe extra quick.
Also, while I’m on the topic of bacon, let’s talk about bacon grease.
Seriously. You’re on the keto diet… reserving your bacon grease for recipes like this are a must.
Slather some of that bacon mayo on just about anything, and the clouds will part, angels will most certainly be singing.
Not only does bacon grease deliciously transform your cooking, but bacon grease is also good for your heart, metabolism, and hormones.
Also, something I want to mention, blueberries and fruits often get a bad rap for acting as a large sugar source on the ketogenic diet.
Some fruits, of course, have more sugar than others, but blueberries, strawberries, and other berries provide nutrients and vitamins that are necessary for your body. Having a handful of berries in your keto meal isn’t going to throw you out of ketosis, however it’s unique to everyone, so listen to your body!
Although blueberries do have carbs, don’t over think it. This keto dinner recipe also has ample fat, so the macronutrients balance themselves out well.
