  • 1 ½ onions, finely diced
  • 1 tbsp butter/grass fed ghee/bacon fat etc.
  • 2 pounds ground pork
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Sauté the onions over medium heat with some cooking fat, like butter, grass fed ghee etc. Sauté until translucent. Allow the onions to cool before adding them to the meat.
  • In a bowl, mix all of the ingredients including the cooked onions. Mix well enough to evenly distribute the spices.
  • Divide the meat into 6 portions. Using your hands, roll a portion into a ball and then indent the middle, and flatten slightly to form the appearance of a bagel.
  • Place the bagel looking meat in the dish and repeat with each of the portions of meat.
  • Bake for 40 minutes or until the meat is fully cooked.
  • Allow the meat bagels to cool. Slice the meat bagel just like a regular bagel. Fill the meat bagel with topping such as tomato slices, lettuce, onions etc.
