This delightfully easy dish makes a great lunch, dinner, or even breakfast.  It’s quick to make and very nutritious.  Note the nutritional stats below!  Of course, it goes without saying this it Induction friendly.  This is Paleo suitable if you use the coconut milk rather than the cream and it is suitable for all phases of Atkins.   This is just as good, perhaps even better, served over a ground pork patty sprinkled with a pinch of thyme (had it that way today!!) or a couple regular pork sausage patties.   :)


6 oz. raw ground beef (cooks out to about 4-4¼ oz)

3 slices bacon, chopped fine (sugar-free)

1 green onion

¼ c. heavy cream or coconut milk

½ c. water

Pinch salt

Cracked fresh pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS:  Form a meat patty with meat and brown it in a non-stick skillet until done.  Drain and set on a serving plate.  Cook bacon in same skillet, drain on paper towel.  Chop green onion and add to pan.  Lower heat to lowest setting and  add water and cream.  Stir until onion is soft.  Thicken with your favorite thickener if not naturally thick enough for you after it reduces a minute or two.  Add bacon, salt, pepper and dip over meat and serve.  Goes nice with a green salad at lunch or some scrambled eggs if serving at breakfast.

    • Well Hello again, Sheila in GA. :) So glad you made your way back to the site. Just remember if you Google Buttoni, or Low Carb Recipe Blogs, I come up pretty high on the first page of results. :)

  2. This is a simple recipe that turned out really well! I made it for dinner, but can absolutely see how it would be just as good for lunch! The ingredients all work so well together! Best of all it was easy to make, which is a huge bonus for someone that isn’t great in the kitchen, like me! Thank you!

    • Always a pleasure to share my recipes, Marlene. And adding interest to your menus is the surest route to success, with any eating regimen.
