This dairy-free carnivore breakfast idea is a delicious way to eat ground beef and eggs. Fry them together in a zero-carb egg-in-a-hole, add a sprinkle of salt, and enjoy! It’s quick and easy with only 4 ingredients and 5 minutes of prep time.
- 1 tablespoon cooking fat tallow, butter, ghee
- 12 ounces ground beef
- 3 small eggs
Divide the meat into three 4-ounce portions.
12 ounces ground beef
Flatten each one into a patty with your hands, then place on a cutting board and open up the center hole. Press and pinch edges together, no cracks should show.
Warm a skillet over high heat and add the cooking fat. Use tallow to keep this recipe dairy-free or cook in butter or ghee if you like. Any fat will do.
1 tablespoon cooking fat
Support the meat with your free hand while firmly lifting the ring up with a spatula and arrange on the skillet. Repeat until all meat is cooking. Adjust the opening if needed.
While the meat cooks, crack open the eggs and add them one by one to the center of the meat. Continue cooking until the meat is nicely browned, about 3 minutes.
3 small eggs
Flip quickly. Cook the second side for about half as long or until eggs set.
Remove from heat, serve, salt liberally and enjoy!
If using large eggs, only use two. Scramble them first in a bowl, then divide evenly into each space.
Cooking the meat for a few extra minutes before adding the egg is the best way to get a crispy finish on the meat with soft, runny egg yolk.
