Paleo-Keto Cordon Bleu

Who wouldn't love Cordon Bleu? It's so delicious and popular that you can find it on the menu of most restaurants, at least in Europe.

Below you'll find the Paleo-Keto version, so it's naturally grain free, nut free and dairy free.

If you are sensitive to eggs, you can prepare the grilled version, without "breading". Use your favorite meat and animal fat for frying.

Ingredients, makes 2 servings

  • 4 thin slices of lean beef or pork (100 g per slice), pounded

  • 4 thin slices of Parma ham

  • 4 pieces of bone marrow, 12-14 g each

  • 1 big egg

  • 50 g pork (alternatively beef) cracklings

  • Lard or tallow for frying


  • Top the beef pieces with the ham slices and the marrow pieces.

  • Fold in half, press firmly and close with toothpicks.

  • Blend the egg with the cracklings. The "dough" needs to be fairly thick. Salt to taste.

  • Heat the fat in a small, deep iron pan.

  • Cover the filled meat with the egg-crackling mix.

  • Fry both sides until golden.

  • Serve warm and enjoy!
