Keto Bacon Wrapped Quail Eggs – Yakitori


It’s time to move on over chicken because here comes the bacon, the newest addition to our low-carb/keto yakitori series!  And we’re going to kick things off with one of my favorite yakitori, the Bacon Wrapped Quail Eggs skewer! 

Keto Bacon Wrapped Quail Eggs - Yakitori LowCarbingAsian Pin 1

This is a classic skewer that is offered at most yakitori restaurants and pretty low-carb/keto as is. 

It’s as simple as using some thin bacon slices, wrapping it around a quail egg, skewering them and placing it over a BBQ to get that lovely BBQ flavor!

You can enjoy it as is or brush some of our low-carb/keto yakitori sauce to give it a sweet and salty taste, the choice is up to you! 

If you’d prefer using the sauce, definitely consider making some yakitori and/or tsukane and call it a low-carb/keto yakitori party!

This dish is traditionally enjoyed with the flavors only coming from the smoky bacon infused into the quail eggs. 

Adding some yakitori sauce on it will add an umami sweetness to balance out the saltiness from the bacon!  They taste great either way and we usually make half and half at our BBQs! 

When making this dish, I strongly suggest you take a look at our other yakitori recipes because the recipes are similar and often can be combined to make a variety of skewers to enjoy.

By using LCA’s yakitori sauce, each skewer will have ~1g net carb, which is great since you will probably be having 10 of these at the end of it!  If you elect to not use the sauce, the net carbs per skewer will be nearly 0g.

We strongly recommend barbecuing this on a grill to bring the best flavors out of this dish, but we also included instructions for cooking it in the oven.

The special ingredients needed for this recipe are Swerve/Monkfruit, Bonito Flakes, Soy Sauce and Japanese Sake.  All these can be picked up on Amazon (aside from Japanese sake) or a local Asian Supermarket.  Note – you can pick up quail eggs at most Asian supermarkets.

Now, let’s get cooking!
