Keto Easy Fried Ham w Pan Gravy

Enjoy a country breakfast on a Keto diet! American-country, that is. You can enjoy this breakfast recipe alone, but there is plenty of room to spare for other breakfast dishes in your meal. You could even incorporate this ham and gravy recipe into meal prepping. The ham and gravy can easily reheat together in a microwave oven, and it will keep in your refrigerator for up to 5 days. Just make sure you’re using a fresh package or roast of ham if you’re going to keep the finished product for multiple days. The pan gravy is made in just minutes, and it includes all the flavors of a seasoned pan. Suggested Keto recipes to make along with this ham and gravy are posted below.

What To Serve With This Dish

You could include this ham and gravy recipe with your main meal, but it’s even better at breakfast time. Since this is a quick and easy recipe, you have time to add a little extra to your table or meal prep container. For those who appreciate simple ingredients, adding whole slices of avocado add Keto fat and minimal carbs. If you have minutes to spare, try one of the carb Manager souffle recipes! If you’d like more fat without having to add carbs, search “butter coffee” in the recipe library. You’ll find a plethora of high-fat coffee drinks to pair with your light breakfast.

Can I Thicken My Gravy A Different Way

Although this recipe is still Keto, most of the carbs come from the paleo flour mix. Paleo flour is one of the best products for thickening Keto gravy, soup, and stew. It’s the closest to traditional all-purpose flour and is cleaner than using corn starch. However, that’s not the only option! If you don’t have paleo flour on hand, you can swap in fine-ground almond flour. The finer your almond flour, the smoother your gravy will be. You can also use a small amount of unflavored powdered gelatin to thicken the gravy. Blooming gelatin requires an extra step in the process, but it will save you those carbohydrates.

Recipe Steps

16 min

  • Step 1

    Start with 2-ounce slices of ham per serving, each about ¼-inch thick. You can slice the ham from a cooked roast or find packaged thick-sliced ham in the same area you find bacon at your grocery store. Pat any excess moisture off the ham slices with a paper towel. Heat the olive oil in a wide pan over high heat and place in the ham slices. Cook the slices of ham until they’re charred golden brown on both sides - about 3 minutes per side.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Transfer the slices of ham aside to cool on a clean surface. Return your pan to low heat on the stove. Melt butter into the pan to deglaze any leftover charred bits of ham. Heat the garlic in the butter for about 30 seconds. Then, stir in the flour. Slowly stir the thickened butter mixture over low heat until you have a golden roux.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Pour the chicken broth into the roux as you’re stirring. Stir in the remaining onion powder and black pepper as well. You are welcome to add any additional seasonings at your discretion. Bring the gravy to a simmer. Let the gravy simmer as it reduces for about 3-4 minutes or until it’s thickened to your desired texture. Serve the hot gravy over your slices of ham alone or with additional side dishes.

    I didn’t have ham so I sub’d a 4 oz. chicken breast. Followed everything else to a T. Delicious! I will cook again with a side of cauliflower.
