How to make Carnivore Sandwich Bread

To start – preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl. Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Place the egg yolks in your blender (for later use).

With a hand mixer, beat the whites on high until the mixture is very frothy and you have soft peaks. The mixture should be light like foam with lots of air bubbles.

Melt the ghee on your stovetop.

In a blender, mix the raw ground pork, melted ghee, and egg yolks until a smooth paste forms.

With a hand mixer, blend the frothy egg whites and the pork-ghee-egg yolk paste until the mixture becomes smooth like batter.

In a blender or food processor, crush the pork rinds to a fine powder.

Fold the pork rind powder and sea salt into the batter.

Pour the batter into your bread pan and bake in the oven for 60 minutes at 375 degrees.

Once done, remove the loaf from the oven and allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes.

Slice the loaf into 1-inch thick slices, or whatever size you prefer.

Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Enjoy!

Tips to make the best Carnivore Sandwich Bread

  • Do not skip any of the steps. In the past, I sometimes would not follow the texture instructions (i.e. beat egg whites until frothy, separate these two ingredients into a separate bowl and mix, etc.) for recipes, and it makes a difference. Each step in the recipe is important for maintaining texture.

Equipment

  • 9x5 Bread pan
  • Blender or food processor
  • Hand mixer
  • Mixing bowl

Ingredients

  • 8 eggs
  • 1 lb raw ground pork (Can't tolerate pork? Make Carnivore Sandwich Bread [Beef Version] instead.)
  • 5 oz pork rinds (the equivalent of 2 EPIC bags)
  • 1/4 cup grass-fed ghee (or butter)
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Instructions

Start the oven.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Make the batter.

  • Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl. Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Place the egg yolks in your blender (for later use).
  • With a hand mixer, beat the whites on high until the mixture is very frothy and you have soft peaks. The mixture should be light like foam.
  • Melt the ghee on your stovetop.
  • In a blender, mix the raw ground pork, melted ghee, and egg yolks until a smooth paste forms.
  • Note: the mixture may be a bit hard to blend due to the meat. I usually have to stop my blender, stir the mixture, and turn it back on 3-4 times.
  • With a hand mixer, blend the frothy egg whites and the pork-ghee-egg yolk paste until the mixture becomes smooth like batter.
  • In a blender or food processor, crush the pork rinds to a fine powder.
  • Fold the pork rind powder and sea salt (ASHLEYR for 15% off) into the batter.
  • Note: if you go through tons of salt in your household like we do, check out this salt purchasing hack that will save you money + make things more efficient. We started this last year, and I'm so happy we did!

Bake the loaf.

  • Pour the batter into your bread pan and bake in the oven for 60 minutes at 375 degrees.
  • Note: You'll know it's done when the texture is consistent, dry, grainy, and bread-like throughout. When you cut into the loaf, if it has slimy patches that look like chunks of egg, it's not done.
  • Once done, remove the loaf from the oven and allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes.

Prepare and serve.

    This recipe is absolutely amazing. Quick, easy and worth the effort for a delicious way to enjoy bread. We have made this 4 times and it’s a crowd favourite. Great as a sandwich or my favourite is to enjoy it with bacon and eggs. To heat up I have toasted it and also in pan.

    MOST AMAZING CARNIVORE BREAD EVER. I’ve literally tried so many different keto/paleo/gluten-free healthy breads and this is hands down the best. It’s perfect toasted or if you slather on some ghee and fry it up on a pan, it has the right amount of chewy and crunch. I actually like to slather a little liver pate on top of this bread…. major kudos for this bomb recipe.

    I made this after a long day being out with the two year old. I really wasn’t sure if it was going to be good . You see I am not the best baker. I made and it was great I used it on the burgers I made later on in the week. Than with the last couple pieces I had left I toasted it with honey and butter. I am thankful I found this Recipe and I will make it again

    I did try this recipe twice and the second time I think I nailed it. It was really tasty and I did love the consistency. I am excited to switch up the sausage variations to see What happens. Great break down of recipe and instructions. Can’t wait to try more!

    Ashley, your talent is reflected in the flavor of your recipes. The images say a lot; you go the extra mile in presenting your dishes. However, that can sometimes be deceiving. When I made your carnivore bread, my life changed. Seriously. The ingredients and the flavors correlated to the images. My husband and kids love it too!

    Thank you!

    Mine’s in the oven as I type and I’m excited to have found a Carnivore recipe source that’s different and imaginative.
    Just one question, how many calories in this loaf? I make it 4000 which, if I divide it into 12 slices, means 330 each slice!

      Hey Lynne – not totally sure as I don’t calculate the calories for my recipes. But for most recipes, I do calculate the macros and list them at the top of the recipe. This one is 172g fat, 250g protein, 0g carbohydrates per loaf.

    I don’t tolerate eggs, and this might be a stretch — but would gelatin eggs work here at all?

      I haven’t tried it (and I haven’t worked with gelatin much) so I’m not entirely sure, but probably worth a shot!

    I am yet to try this but it looks fantastic! Have you had success freezing it, I would put something between each slice or freeze in portions. Also could I just use straight butter instead of ghee or use tallow or lard instead? Thankyou

      I have not tried freezing it, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t hold up in the freezer. Butter, tallow, or lard will work just fine in place of ghee!

    I read pork as “pork sausage”, just got done mixing it up, it’s cooking now. I’m thinking I may have ruined it with the sausage mishap, but we’ll see! If I did I will def try again with the right ingredients.

      Shouldn’t affect it too much. If anything, it may affect the flavor. It could be even better! Hope it turns out for you.

    Made this recipe a few times now, with different kinds of meats, and it’s always yummy – though I have to say, venison might be my favorite. With some cinnamon honey butter, it’s just divine!
    Also wanted to share that, on the most recent attempt, I blended in like 4-5 soaked dates as well as a few extra egg whites I needed to use. Baked for about 1hr 15min. The flavor kind of reminds me of the “honey whole wheat” bread I grew up with, and it’s beautifully fluffy (though very brown in the outside – may lower the heat just a tad next time I do it this way). Keep on rock on’ in the kitchen, Ash!

    Is it possible to use a bagel mold baking pan to make this? How would it impact cook time? I imagine it would lower the cook time ?

    So excited to try this recipe. Love your website. The details are so great.

      You can absolutely do this! I just took this same recipe and made burger buns with it, so the bake time for bagels would probably be closer to that. Bake time for the burger buns was around 35-40 min, so maybe start there. Not sure how large your bagel molds are, but the burger bun molds are 4 inches wide.
