Recipe Overview

Preparation Time

Less than 30 minutes

Cooking Time

Less than 30 minutes

Serving Size

7 x Christmas Shapes (will vary depending on the size of your cutter shapes)

Main Ingredients:

250g Minced Meat

50g Tallow

40g Oven Roasted Bone Marrow

1 tbsp Honey (Optional)

20g Liver Parfait (per shape)

Salt to Taste


10g Crispy Parma Ham Flakes (decoration - Optional)

Cooked egg yolk & egg white circles (decoration - Optional)

Recipe Instructions

Prepare a lined baking tray.


In a pan, melt the bone marrow and tallow together. Once melted, strain the mixture through a sieve and pour into a glass jar to cool down.


Meanwhile, cook the minced beef in a pan on medium heat. Once done, add a little salt to taste and stir well in. Allow the mixture to cool down (for those wanting a slight sweetness to the buns, you can add the honey to the pan and stir in at this point).


On the lined baking tray add your Christmas cutter shapes. Fill each shape to almost half the way up with the room temperature cooked minced meat mixture.


Now add a small amount of the Liver Parfait on top of the meat mixture.


Pour the melted tallow and bone marrow mixture on top of the Liver Parfait to fill the cutter shapes to the top.


Place the baking tray in the fridge so that the meat and fat solidify well together.


Once the shapes have set, carefully remove them from the metal cutters and place on a serving plate. Decorate the Christmas Canapés for extra effect.


Check out my Liver Parfait recipe for instructions on how to make this.

To make these Christmas Canapés even more special, it's always nice to add some extra splashes of colour. I used Parma Ham Flakes and some little circles of cooked egg white & egg yolk.

Ideally, purchase your meat from pasture raised animals that are Nitrate, Nitrite & Additive Free and use white sea or rock salt that contains no anticaking agents or other additives.

Any honey should be of organic quality, and is only recommended in small amounts for those who have recovered from any kind of health condition.

Any ingredients listed as Optional, may or may not be appropriate if you are following Strict PKD with No Allowances. If you are unsure, refer to the Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet Rules document or consult with ICMNI in Hungary (Home - Nutriintervention).
