Sugar-free Paleo Bacon

There are quite a few recipes for making your own bacon on the internet. A lot of them involve sugar. Some of them don’t. A lot of them have ingredients that I can’t get here in Spain. So on my third attempt at making bacon, I decided to go with my own collection of spices, and leave out the sugar or maple syrup as well. And you know what – it works! I know it looks like a lot of ingredients, but they are all spices...

Pineapple, pork and bacon ‘donuts’

This is just plain weird. But fun! It takes a little bit more effort, but with bacon – it’s worth it. Makes a great picnic snack, quick on-the-go lunch or breakfast, or travel food. Always nice to have travel food! Ingredients 475g ground pork 90g spring onion (about 2 or 3?) 3 garlic cloves, minced 1 teaspoon dried chillis 1 teaspoon fennel seeds 1 can of pineapple rings (4 pineapple rings) 8 strips of bacon Directions...

Cheesy Flax Flatbread and Calcot spread

To follow on from my Very British Scotch Eggs, I decided to tackle the very Catalan calcot sauce. Traditionally, this is a romesco type sauce made with ground almonds, hazelnuts, breadcrumbs, garlic, tomato and roast peppers. They have competitions to make the best and, in true catalan style, the best are made from scratch using freshly roasted tomatoes and peppers and lovingly combines with a mortar and pestle. It’s served with...

Mediterranean Scotch Eggs

A very British snack with a twist…. I used to love scotch eggs when I lived in the UK. The almost perfect paleo snack.. if it weren’t for the breadcrumbs. So when I went low-carb, I was sad that I could no longer pop into Marks n Spencer’s and grab one. It has to be said, a crappy scotch egg is a major disappointment, but a delicious one – is absolute heaven! Of course, moving to Spain fixed that. I’m...

Chicken Bacon Berry Balls

More fruit and meat combinations ahead! This one was inspired by the fact that I wanted a snack-y type meatball but something different than pork. Saying that, I’m sure this would work well with pork as well. I added the bacon to keep them a bit moist, as sometimes chicken can get a little dry. It got the seal of approval (and surprise) from The Boyfriend. Which is a pretty high accolade as he usually isn’t too keen on my...

Not your average Blueberry Breakfast Muffin

Fruit and meat. Again! I found some blueberries in the fridge last week. Decided instead of making my typical blueberry protein scone – why not make some pork muffins. Nice. And it worked (for me). They look a little weird – which benefitted me, as I didn’t have to share them. Good thing as this recipe only made 6 muffins. Ingredients 400g ground pork 60g of raw, chopped bacon 120g blueberries 2 eggs 1 teaspoon fennel...
