We all know Hellmanns will get the job done as well. But the trick to doing keto right is in the HEALTHY fats. Avocado mayo is as healthy a fat as they come. There are a number of brands cropping up on the market. I prefer Primal Kitchen because it’s not cut with any additional trans fats and the taste is on point!

Filling

  1. Mix together: egg yolk, bacon grease, avocado mayo, truffle oil and dijon until smooth and creamy.
  2. Chop 2 strips of bacon and add to mix.
  3. Lightly season with fresh cracked pepper and additional salt (if need be).
  4. Pipe or scoop yolk mix back into whites.
  5. Garnish with chopped bacon and fresh chives.
  6. Delicious with a drizzle of hot pepper jelly. 🙂
