When meatloaf meets quiche with a dose of deeply nourishing organ meats, you get an excellent carnivore diet recipe! Making delicious organ meat recipes you actually want to eat has never been so easy.
Quick and convenient, you can prep a carnivore quiche in 15 minutes. Just lightly brown the meat in beef tallow and pop the skillet in the oven. Sit down to a fine meal just a few minutes later.
With 1.25 g protein to 1 g fat, it has slightly more protein than fat per serving. If you need to add fat, I highly recommend spreading room temperature grass-fed butter on top!

One of the Best Carnivore Diet Recipes
Since releasing The Carnivore Cookbook earlier this year, people often ask “What’s your favorite carnivore diet recipes”?
I immediately think of oven finished T-bones, butter-based eggs, and beef heart meatballs among others from my collection of 100+ recipes exclusively featuring animal protein and fats. Finally, my mind settles on one of the last recipes in the “Raw Meat, Organs and Bones” chapter: Organ Meat Quiche Cups.
Yes, that’s the one.
I love this simple recipe that eloquently combines muscle meat, heart, and liver in a one-pan 30-minute meal.
Quiche cups was the carnivore diet recipe that surprised me the most by just how darn good they tasted!
I’m sharing the same recipe with you today. Only instead of baking in a muffin pan, I use a cast-iron skillet. If you don’t have a cast-iron, use a large pie plate instead.
Keto Organ Meat Recipes
If you are enjoying a keto diet and surfing around the keto space, you are bound to come across information about organ meats sooner or later.
Do you know how seriously amazing the benefits of organ meats are?
Liver pate is already world-famous so it can’t be that bad, can it?
Maybe you’re not quite ready for
Beef heart is soft and tender, with a slightly sweet flavor. Very similar to sirloin in both taste and texture, the heart is a versatile part and can be seared, braised, pan-fried or ground into carnivore meatballs. Because it is so soft, heart is also eaten raw in tartare.
If you’re on the fence about beef heart, try my savory Beef Heart Meatza. Share it with your family, and I bet no one can tell there is
Carnivore Diet Breakfast
One of the biggest stumbling blocks on a carnivore diet is that people are afraid it will be boring.
Upon first glance, the carnivore food list might seem restrictive but once you see how many options there are, you may be surprised!
Once people feel the satiation, clear and calm mental state, increase in energy and other benefits associated with a carnivore diet, the positive feedback is a clear payoff for more elemental eating.
Most people are also surprised by the extent they legitimately enjoy eating fatty protein day in and day out. It’s simple, quick, and doesn’t require a lot of thought or prep. It might sound crazy to you right now but if you have the slightest interest, give it a try!
You won’t be bored, I got you covered!
Start your day with this organ meat pie, end it with a nice ribeye steak. Salt liberally and drink water in between. Keep this on repeat and tell me how it goes!
Easy Carnivore Meal Prep
This is a great recipe for meal prep. Make two pies at a time and eat them
The meat pie may be frozen. If stored in an airtight container, it will keep fresh in the fridge for 5 days and up to 7. Always use your best judgment.
With 1 g net carbs per serving, Organ Meat Pie is a delicious, keto carnivore diet recipe!
Ground Organ Meat
It’s hard to make an organ meat pie without the organs, so you need to find a way to buy and grind them.
The heart may be more difficult to find but it really depends on your specific area.
Get to know your butcher. They can be invaluable to your meat-centric journey. Not only can they tip you off to upcoming sales, but they will also know how to best prepare each cut of meat, and help source organs and other odd bits.
I usually ask my butcher to grind liver and heart ahead of time before I bring it home.
If you can’t do this, it’s easy to dice and blend the liver and heart in a food processor or blender. Pure one at a time until completely ground up.
Buying the organs preground is not necessary but I do appreciate having it prepped and packaged for me, it’s one less step I need to do before cooking.

How much organ meat should I eat?
Eat organ meats as you please. Because everyone is coming from a different background, there is a range of frequency we will all have.
If you are new to this way of eating, it might be a big enough accomplishment to have something once a week. If you are already decently versed in the culinary delights of nose to tail eating, having offal a few times a week may be more appropriate.
There is no need to force or stuff yourself with these foods. Eat them as you please.
To make this pie more enticing for you, consider adding stronger flavors like garlic and onion, even hot sauce (assuming your digestive system doesn’t flare up!) to disguise the “organ” flavor of the liver – although that’s my favorite part!
If you are interested in more flavor and know you tolerate certain herbs and spices well, add ½ tablespoon of your favorite seasoning or seasoning mix into the meat.
