Easy Keto Recipes Using 5 Ingredients or Less.
Time is precious, but we still want to eat healthy and delicious food. These next mouth-watering recipes prove you can make magic with fewer than five ingredients:
Keto Brunch Spread
Give this simple keto brunch spread a try for a plate full of health perks that will also leave you feeling satiated.
4 large eggs
24 asparagus spears
12 slices of pastured, sugar free bacon
Preheat your oven to 400F.
Trim your asparagus about an inch from the bottoms. Then in pairs, wrap them with one slice of bacon. Hold your spears firmly and close together with one hand as you wind the slice of bacon starting from the bottom to the top of the spear. Gently pull the bacon as you wind it, so it wraps tightly. Place it on a sheet pan.
Repeat with the remaining asparagus, so you have 12 pairs wrapped in bacon.
Place in the oven, set the timer for 20 minutes.
In this time, bring a small pot of water to a rapid boil. Gently place 4 large eggs in boiling water. Set another time for 6 minutes.
Prepare a bowl with ice water. When the 6 minutes are up, use a slotted spoon or tongs to quickly transfer your eggs to the ice bath. Let them sit for 2 minutes before peeling the tops off.
Gently crack the top of the egg on a hard surface and peel away shell to reveal the tip of the egg.
When the asparagus are ready, serve on a tray or cutting board. If you don’t have an egg holder use espresso cups to hold your eggs up.
With a small spoon scoop out the tops of the soft boiled eggs to reveal a perfectly runny yolk.
Dip your asparagus spears into your eggs. Feast, enjoy!

Baked Pesto Chicken
Pesto sauce is one of my favorite condiments. It is perfect for quick meals like my 5 Minute 5 Ingredient Baked Pesto Chicken. Pesto packs a lot of flavor in a small package. At the end of the summer I'll make a batch but normally I just buy it.

4 chicken breasts about 1.5 lb, sliced in half widthwise to make 8 pieces
3 tbsp basil pesto
8 oz mozzarella thinly sliced or shredded
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 350.
Spray baking dish with cooking spray. Place chicken in the bottom in a single layer and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread the pesto on the chicken. Put the mozzarella on top.
Bake for 35-45 minutes until the chicken is 160 degrees and the cheese is golden and bubbly. You can broil it for a few minutes at the end to brown the cheese if you want.

Perfect Keto Avocado Breakfast Bowl
1 avocado, halved and the stone removed
1 tbsp salted butter
3 large free range eggs
3 rashers of bacon, cut into small pieces
Pinch of salt and black pepper
Start off by scooping out most of the avocado flesh, leaving about ½ inch around the avocado.
Place a large saucepan on a low heat and add in the butter. Whilst the butter is melting, crack the eggs into a jug and beat them, adding a pinch of salt and pepper.
Add the bacon to one side of the pan and let them fry for a couple of minutes on their own. Then add the eggs to the other side of the pan and stir regularly as they scramble. The eggs and bacon should both be done 5 minutes after the eggs are added to the pan. If you find you eggs are done a little before the bacon, remove the scrambled eggs from the pan and place in a bowl.
Mix the bacon pieces and scrambled eggs together in a bowl, then spoon into the avocado bowls and get to eating.
