For me, one of the perks of the keto diet is that can you eat bacon! I’ve actually heard the keto diet referred to as the bacon diet. I’ve rounded up 11 of the best keto bacon recipes out there.
Just call me Homer Simpson because mmm….bacon!
If you’re new to the keto diet, check out my beginner’s guide! It explains what it is, how it works and includes food lists to get you going.
The Best Keto Bacon Recipes
Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies. This recipe from Wholesome Yum takes asparagus to a whole new level! My favorite part of it is that the bacon actually comes out crispy.
Usually, bacon wrapped food means the bacon is wimpy and limp. I like my bacon crisp so this recipe hits the mark. And asparagus is a great low carb vegetable too because the fiber brings the net carb count down.
Even if you normally don’t like asparagus, you should try this. I’m willing to bet it will change your mind!
If you’re just starting out on the keto diet you may be wondering what kind of snack options you have. Well, look no further! These jalapeno cheese crisps from Delish couldn’t be easier to make. Only 3 main ingredients are needed – cheese, jalapeños, and of course, bacon!
Pile on the goodies and bake until crispy. This would be perfect for a keto-friendly appetizer or maybe a movie night snack.
You may think that goodies like scones are a no-go for the keto diet. But you’re wrong! These savory scones from Primavera Kitchen are made with a combination of almond and coconut flour, which make them low carb and totally doable if you’re on keto.
Bacon, mozzarella, and a combination of herbs give these scones a kick of flavor. Try them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They would perfect paired with a salad or healthy soup.
If you love meatballs, you’re really going to love this bacon-wrapped meatball recipe from Step Away From the Carbs.
Ground beef and ground pork are used for the meatballs, with parmesan cheese substituting for the breadcrumbs. Bacon is wrapped around each meatball before baking. Pair this with a low carb BBQ sauce and you’re set!
You could serve these at parties but they would also make a filling low carb snack.
It may seem like you won’t get to enjoy things like dips and snacks on keto but that’s not true. This yummy BLT dip from Joy Filled Eats uses mayo, sour cream, and cream cheese to make this dip taste like a real BLT sandwich.
Add diced bacon, tomatoes, and lettuce and serve with a variety of fresh veggies for dipping. It comes together really quickly so if you’re in a crunch to bring something to a potluck or party this would be a great low carb choice.
You could even pack this in your lunch for a late afternoon treat!
Spaghetti squash is one of the staples on the keto diet as a replacement for pasta. The texture of the squash once cooked is reminiscent of spaghetti noodles. This recipe from Crafty Morning puts a new spin on it by adding a creamy mixture of yogurt and cheese to the cooked squash.
And of course, bacon!
This would make a great side dish for steak or chicken, You could even eat it by itself for a light dinner!
I don’t know about you, but I love a good bacon cheeseburger! Unfortunately, you have to leave off the bun if you’re on the keto diet. This low carb bacon cheeseburger casserole recipe from Low Carb Yum is so good, it makes you forget all about that bun!
Ground beef, bacon, cheese, and a creamy tomato sauce all combine to make this mouth-watering casserole.
This is a quick and easy recipe which makes it perfect for busy weeknights when you don’t have a lot of time.
One of the things you miss the most when you’re on the keto diet is bread. There’s just something about the texture that makes you feel good. These cheesy bacon bread rolls courtesy of the Sugar Free Londoner provide a fix for your bread craving.
Combine egg whites, vinegar, almond flour, and Psyllium Husk to create the dough for these bread bites. Bake, and then top them off with bacon and cheese.
Sugar free, low carb, and full of goodness, eat these as a snack or serve them as an appetizer.

All it takes is cooked shredded chicken, frozen broccoli, chicken broth, cream cheese, and low carb ranch dressing seasoning mix. Top with cheese and bacon and you have a main dish the whole family will love.
At just 6 grams of carbs per serving, this is the perfect standalone dinner. Pair it with a nice salad made with fresh ingredients. Yummy!
Here’s another tasty treat from Joy Filled Eats, this time in the form of a dessert. The traditional version is made with crescent rolls, brown sugar, and maple syrup which is very high in carbs from all the sugar.
This version uses a mozzarella-based dough, molasses, and maple extract to create the same flavors without the carbs!
If you’re craving sweet treats, be sure to try this one!
It doesn’t get any easier than this for a low carb appetizer or snack. These bacon wrapped cheese sticks from Kasey Trenum take only 2 ingredients – bacon and mozzarella cheese sticks.
