  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the ghee or animal fat. Let it melt and coat the bottom of the skillet.
  • Place the turkey slices in the skillet to make a tasty base for your keto diet breakfast.
  • Carefully crack each egg directly onto the turkey slices and season them with a sprinkle of salt and pepper to add flavor. 
  • If you prefer a sunny side up, cover the skillet briefly to cook the egg tops while keeping the yolks runny. For well-done eggs, cook it a bit longer until the yolks are fully set.
  • Turn off the heat and garnish with fresh herbs once the eggs are perfect.


2. Garlic Butter Shrimp Scampi Extravaganza
