KETO RECIPE: Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs have always been my favorite party food! I was making my BLT Deviled Eggs long before I was Keto.

This deviled egg recipe is a little different than the traditional filling. I add sour cream to my egg mixture and it is a game changer! It brings lightness and acidity and cuts through the mayonnaise.

At the bottom of this recipe, I’ve added a bunch of variations! Because Deviled Eggs are such a widely made dish, its really fun to develop your version of the classic recipe. Add your favorite Keto toppings like Jalapeños, Bacon, Basil. You can even add Avocado to the egg mixture.

Have fun creating your own Keto Deviled Egg recipe!


INGREDIENTS

  • 12 large eggs

  • 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise

  • 1⁄4 cup sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon

  • ground mustard

  • Pink salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • Any other topping that you might like! Scroll down for variations!

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place the eggs in a large saucepan and cover with 3 to 4 inches of water. Bring the water to a boil. Once you get a boil turn off the heat, cover the pot, and let sit for 15 minutes.

  2. Drain the eggs and fill the pan with ice-cold water (you can add ice cubes, too). Peel the eggs under cold running water. Put them on a paper towel−lined plate.

  3. Halve the eggs lengthwise. With a small spoon, carefully remove the yolks, transfer the yolks to a small bowl, and mash them.

  4. Mix in the mayonnaise, sour cream, and mustard, and season with pink salt and pepper. Stir until smooth.

  5. Spoon the yolk mixture back into the middle in the egg whites, or pipe it in with a cake-decorating bag if you want it to look pretty. Sprinkle with the paprika and serve.


My daughter frequently watches YouTube videos, usually DIY or baking videos, and she picks up some awesome tricks!

Instead of an expensive piping bag, grab a zip lock bag and any plastic cup. Put the bag in the cup, folding the edges of the bag over the sides of the cup. Spoon the mix into the zip-top bag, lift the bag out of the cup, cut off a small corner, and BOOM! You’ve created a simple piping bag.


VARIATIONS

Classic Deviled eggs are great, but I like to add a little crunch and spice to this recipe. You can add any Keto Toppings you want. Here are some of my suggestions:

BLT Deviled Eggs: These are my favorite. I have been making them for years. Top the egg mixture with crumbled bacon, chopped tomato, and chopped basil, which acts as the “L.” Everyone loves them, keto or not!

Bacon-Jalapeño Deviled Eggs: Top the basic egg mixture with crumbled bacon and diced jalapeños. Remove the jalapeño seeds to decrease the heat level.

Bacon-Avocado Deviled Eggs: Add 1⁄2 avocado and 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lime juice to the egg mixture. Then crumble 2 slices of crisply cooked bacon on top. I also like to switch out the paprika for Tajín, a delicious Mexican seasoning salt made with chiles and lime.

KETO RECIPE: Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole


This is one of my daughter’s favorite recipes! She loves this casserole! We make it about once a week, during the winter months. It reheats beautifully and can last 3 or 4 meals.

This recipe is hearty and protein heavy. I like to make it on days when I’ve been intermittent fasting all day long. I look forward to it all day long and it definitely fills me up!

cheeseburger casserole

Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole

INGREDIENTS FOR THE BEEF

  • 1 pound bacon

  • 1 tablespoon ghee

  • 1 pound ground beef (you can also use Ground Turkey)

  • Pink salt

  • Freshly ground

  • black pepper

FOR THE CASSEROLE

  • 1 tablespoon ghee

  • 1⁄2 cup heavy (whipping) cream

  • 4 large eggs, beaten

  • 3⁄4 cup shredded cheese

  • Pink salt

  • Ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until both sides are crispy. Cool for 5 minutes on a paper towel lined plate. Transfer to a cutting board and chop the bacon.

  2. In a second large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the ghee. Add beef and brown. Season with pink salt and pepper.

  3. Once the meat is browned, after about 8 minutes, drain the fat and mix in the chopped bacon.

TO MAKE THE CASSEROLE

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with the ghee.

  2. Spoon the beef-and-bacon mixture into the bottom of baking dish making a bottom layer.

  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream, eggs, and half of the cheese, and season with pink salt and pepper. Pour over the meat.

  4. Top with the remaining half of the cheese.

  5. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the cheese on top is melted and lightly browned.

  6. Let the casserole cool for about 5 minutes before serving.

I recommend incorporating some acidity into this recipe. With all of the cheese and salty meat, a little acidity freshens up this recipe.

You can:

• Add 1⁄2 cup of diced pickles into the beef mixture. I never skip the pickles when making this recipe.

• If pickles aren’t your thing, Sliced pepperoncini works well, too.

• Mix 1⁄4 cup of low-sugar tomato sauce, like Rao’s brand, with the cream-and-eggs mixture.

KETO RECIPE: Jalapeño Popper Chicken


Jalapeño Popper Chicken 5.jpg

One of my favorite keto sides is bacon-wrapped jalapeño peppers stuffed with cream cheese, so it was only natural that I would find a way to sneak this amazing combination into other recipes. The jalepeño seeds can be removed in this recipe, so it is kid-friendly as well.


I love serving this chicken with either mashed cauliflower or roasted. Add a little cheese and bacon on top of the cauliflower too ;) A variation to this recipe is if you want to cook the chicken breasts in a slow cooker with a little salt, pepper, and broth all day and then shred once cooked. Then you can place the cooked shredded chicken in baking dish, add sour cream, cheese and jalapeños and bake until cheese is melted and golden.

  3. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel and season both sides with salt and pepper.

  4. In a baking dish, arrange the chicken breasts and spread the cream cheese over the top of the chicken. Layer the jalapeño slices on the chicken breasts, and top with the cheese.

  5. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees and its juices run clear.

  6. Add the crumbled bacon on top and serve.

Keto Recipe: Bacon-Strawberry Spinach Salad

This Bacon Strawberry Spinach Salad is one of my favorite spring salads right now. The strawberries this season are incredible, and they pair beautifully with salty crispy bacon. (Strawberries are keto-approved as long as you don’t go crazy) I like to add avocado chunks to this salad, but you can add feta or goat cheese or even cheddar. 

This Recipe is featured in my cookbook, The Big Book of Keto.
