Bacon & Tomato Keto Gnocchi

Oh my… these flavours! I used smoked bacon lardons because they are chunkier (and fattier) than simply dicing up thin bacon rashers yourself. They also render so much glorious fat and flavour when frying up, and this is key to this dish. The tomatoes add lovely sweet acidity. If you can manage 9.9g carbs per serving, this will sufficiently feed 2 people. But it is very rich and filling, so you could divide this into 4 smaller servings and halve the macros accordingly. I used my almond-flour gnocchi for this recipe, but I think the nut-free version version of my gnocchi is much lighter and may sit better (it will also come in lower in carbs). Either way, enjoy this lovely combination to enjoy over whichever version you prefer. Enjoy!

Bacon & Tomato Gnocchi (Keto)

Massive flavours in this rich keto gnocchi dish, which features bacon, garlic, tomatoes and Parmesan. The macros are calculated on a serving of two people, but you could stretch it to serve 4 as a lighter meal or side dish.

Course Main Dish
Cuisine General
Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 2


  • Keto Gnocchi, Fats of Life recipe
  • 2 tsp unsalted butter
  • 200 g (7.1 oz) smoked bacon lardons
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) cherry tomatoes, chopped small
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp Parmesan, finely grated
  • finely chopped parsley


  • Prepare the gnocchi as per the FOL Keto Gnocchi recipe on this site. As mentioned in that recipe, drizzle a little olive oil over and set aside to keep warm if you have not yet made your sauce.
  • Melt the butter in a non-stick pan and add the smoked bacon lardons. Cook over a low-moderate heat until the bacon renders all its fat and juices. Add the garlic and stir continuously until the garlic softens too. (We add the garlic later as it tends to burn very quickly and will turn your batch bitter.)
  • Stir in the diced cherry tomatoes and gently warm them through, cooking for only another minute.
  • Tip the mixture into the bowl of warm gnocchi and gently toss to combine. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
  • Scatter over the finely grated Parmesan. Finish with chopped parsley.
