What Is Keto Egg Salad?

As explained in this low carb chocolate peanut butter fudge recipe, a ketogenic diet primarily consists of high-fats, moderate-proteins, and very-low-carbohydrates.

Although the classic recipe is naturally low in carb, this recipe increases healthy fats with avocado oil adding an additional 5 grams of fat.

You’ll find some recipes that use fresh avocado pulp in place of some or all of the mayonnaise, which is tasty as well.

Avocado oil is a stocked in my pantry at all times, which is why I prefer it!

Hard Boiled Eggs

First, cook the hard boiled eggs.

The easiest way to cook foolproof hard boiled eggs is to use Hamilton Beach egg cooker!

The egg cooker comes with a measuring cup marked for the type of eggs you want cooked – hard, medium or soft cooked.

Simply fill it to the water line, place it it in the center water reservoir, add the eggs, cover with the lid, and press the switch on.

The bell will ring when the eggs are cooked. It’s THAT easy! Want another fool proof method to cook your eggs? Check out this post on how to cook boiled eggs in the oven!

Serve With Celery Sticks, Lettuce Leaves or Rolls

To keep my meals low carb, I enjoy this salad over lettuce and wrap it up like a burrito or scoop it up with celery sticks.

On the other hand, Alan needs the extra carbs, so he enjoys this salad packed in a sandwich!

Rhodes Bake-N-Serv® is handy to use for a sandwich. For instance, they’re stored in the freezer, so bake just one, two or a half dozen rolls at a time.

In just 12 minutes fresh sandwich rolls are baked!

Baking Mat

To bake the rolls, I placed a round Silpat mat on the bottom of a baking pan, which is super convenient!

Although this particular style of mat is mostly used as a reusable cake liner as shown in this Double Chocolate Fudge Cake, I’ve found it to be perfect for these sandwich rolls!

Rolls in a baking pan

The best part is that there is no need to grease a baking pan or use parchment paper so the rolls don’t stick. How cool is that?!
