Paleo-Keto Hot Dog

Many of us on the Paleolithic-Ketogenic Diet, the carnivore or the classical ketogenic diet used to eat Hot Dogs in the past and most of us used to like it a lot. It's an easy and quickly fixed comfort food with a pleasant taste but not much nutritional value and a lot of carbs, additives and probably unhealthy oils - depending on the added sauce.

I had a leftover additive-free pork-beef sausage that I had to eat and I thought to try a PKD version of Hot Dog. I put together the ingredients in a way that I get an ideal PKD fat-to- protein ratio. This Hot Dog doesn't contain any plants, sugar or additives. One portion has less than 1 g carbohydrates.

Ingredients - makes 2 servings


  • 4 big egg whites

  • 2 big egg yolks

  • Salt

  • 12 g pork rinds

  • 15 g pork greaves

  • 5 g smoked Mangalica slab or fatty bacon, diced


  • 2 big egg yolks

  • 20 g smoked Mangalica slab or fatty bacon, diced

  • Salt


  • 2 beef-pork sausages with 30% fat


  • Preheat the oven to 200 °C.

  • Fry the bacon dices until crispy. Separate from the rendered fat ans set aside.

  • Whip the egg whites with a pinch of salt until very stiff peaks.

  • Ground the pork rinds.

  • Blend the yolks with the greaves and mix with the pork rind powder.

  • Carefully fold in the egg whites.

  • Form two Hot Dog buns with the help of two spoons on a baking tray lined with parhement paper. Top with the bacon cubes.

  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.

  • Fry the sausages in an iron pan.

  • For the sauce whisk vigorously the egg yolks with the warm rendered bacon fat until thickens. Salt if necessary. Mix in the bacon cubes.

  • With a sharp knife make wholes into the buns big enough to fit the sausages in.

  • Divide the sauce between the buns and carefully slide the sausages into the holes.

  • Enjoy!
