Eggs and bacon or eggs and sausage with black or collagen coffee are typical keto breakfasts, but this keto egg bake is a nutrient-dense and satiating option for a weekend morning when you have a bit more time. Weave it into your Sunday meal prep routine, bake it, cool it, portion it and wrap in parchment paper, and store it in the refrigerator. On busy weekday mornings, take a portion out of the fridge to warm up on the counter, or to heat for a few minutes in the oven or toaster oven. Re-wrap the portioned egg bake in the parchment paper, grab a napkin (don’t forget your travel coffee mug), and you have breakfast on the go.
Instead of the hash browns or bread cubes you might typically find in an egg bake or breakfast casserole, we used grated turnips, but you could also substitute grated parsnips, zucchini, or even carrots or sweet potatoes if you want a Primal egg bake. We used ground chicken, but you could also use ground turkey, beef, sausage, bison, or lamb. Same thing for the other vegetables—instead of kale and cabbage, you could use Swiss or rainbow chard, shredded Brussels sprouts, or baby spinach.

Few words exist that can elicit an immediate mouth-watering response like these: dark chocolate and bacon. As simple as cooking can get (if that’s what we’re calling baking bacon, and melting chocolate), if you’re Primal, keto, or Primal-keto, you likely have these two ingredients on hand in your kitchen most of the time. Very dark chocolate (90%) has a bitterness akin to coffee that enhances all of the flavors paired with it, and the slightly sweet, salty, smoky flavor combination of the chocolate bacon tantalizes the tongue even more than our Dark Chocolate Macadamia Bark with Sea Salt. You can guild the lily by adding toasted unsweetened coconut or finely chopped nuts to the chocolate before it sets, but we prefer this as a twosome.

These little fat bombs are the perfect treat and a great way to up the healthy fats in your diet while eating keto. We used Primal Kitchen® Peanut Butter Collagen here, but you can swap it out with vanilla or chocolate varieties. Store these fat bombs in the fridge or freezer to keep them firm. For a more chocolatey fat bomb, melt your favorite super dark or sugar-free chocolate and dip the tops of the chilled fat bombs in them. Dust with more Collagen Fuel and chill before enjoying.

Is there truly anyone who doesn’t love a good meatball? (Vegetarians and vegans exempt here…) Whether you’re cooking for a Primal crowd, a keto crowd, or a kid crowd, you’re covered if you have meatballs. Headed to a party where you know the foraging will be difficult—meatballs are your answer. Bring a platter to share (just be sure to grab yours right away). We love this recipe because it’s just three ingredients, and the meatballs are premade. They’re the perfect last-minute solution to Primal buffets.

Sliders are always a welcome addition to the buffet lineup. A heartier appetizer option, they’re more like a mini meal, which is a relief to those who’ve had their share of typical cocktail fare the last few weeks. Thankfully, this “small bite” is both tasty and satisfying. We especially love the combination of tangy barbecue pulled pork and roasted sweet potato, slightly crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. You’ll never go back to buns again after tasting this version.

Goat cheese dip is a delicious way to upgrade your next party spread or charcuterie board. There’s something about goat cheese that just feels fancy, right? And when you serve a hot dip, it says, “This isn’t any ordinary cheese tray. This cheese has been BAKED!”
The beauty of this particular goat cheese dip is that it only requires four ingredients and a few minutes of prep time. It comes out creamy, zesty, bubbly, and ready to impress. Enjoy!
