I used to make chocolate fat bombs but I found this ice cream that is Keto friendly, definitely low carb friendly. I love it.


I took some Mission Low Carb Tortillas, poured some olive oil in a wide flat bowl, soaked the tortillas in the olive oil, one at a time, covering both sides. Stacked them, cut them into 8 wedges, spread them on a cookie sheet, sprinkled with sea salt and put them in a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes. Beautiful, crunchy chips to eat with my guacamole! I'll never buy packaged chips again!

I did not taste the mayo in the bread/ waffle I made below.

This is my newest obsession. So very yummy ! It is from www.ketoconnect.net

Low Carb Pumpkin Bread

Prep Time 15 minutes

Cook Time 1 hour 10 minutes

Resting Time 1 hour 30 minutes

Total Time 2 hours 55 minutes


Servings 10

Calories 285kcal


Ingredients


Cheesecake Layer
•8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
•1/4 cup sour cream
•1 large egg
•10 drops liquid stevia
•1/4 cup erythritol


Bread
•3/4 cup almond flour
•1/3 cup coconut flour
•1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
•1/2 tsp baking powder
•1/2 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
•1 cup pumpkin puree (100%)
•1/2 cup erythritol
•20 drops liquid stevia
•2/3 cup butter
•1 tsp vanilla extract
•1 large egg




Instructions


Cheesecake Layer


1.Position an oven rack in the bottom third of the oven and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.



2.Combine the cream cheese, erythritol, sour cream and egg in a large bowl and beat with a mixer until well combined; set aside.




Pumpkin Bread


1.Generously spray a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with nonstick coconut spray.



2.Whisk together the flours, pumpkin spice, baking powder, salt in a medium bowl and set aside.



3.Whisk together the pumpkin puree and erythritol in a large bowl, then whisk in the melted butter, stevia, vanilla and egg.



4.Whisk in the flour mixture until just combined.



5.Reserve 1 cup of the pumpkin batter. Spread the remaining batter in the bottom of the prepared loaf pan.



6.Spoon the cream cheese mixture over the pumpkin batter, then put the reserved cup of pumpkin batter on top of the cheesecake layer.



7.Bake until the top is cracked and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 70-80 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 20-30 minutes until cheesecake layer is set, then carefully invert onto a platter or cake stand and flip upright.



8.Let cool completely, at least 1 1/2 hours.



9.NOTE: Make sure to check on the bread starting at 60 minutes to make sure any cheesecake layer the settled at the top isn't burning. Slightly browned is fine!

Works for me as I don't like yolks. LOL. I'm guessing you can't taste the mayo as I don't like it either. Right?

Wonder bread Chaffle

Nothing is as good as real bread but this comes close! It makes a wonderful bun or a sandwich.

1 egg
1 Tbsp mayonaise
1 Tbsp almond flour
1/8 tsp baking powder
1 tsp water

Mix all together. You can whip by hand but if you blend it in a personal blender they have a fluffier consistency.

After mixing cook in a waffle iron.
This was good but a tad eggy in taste so I may try egg whites next time.

Basic plain chaffle, low carb.

1 egg
1 tbs. Carb Quick
1/2 cup mozarella

Mix well. Put half on mini waffle maker at a time. (pre-heated) Cook 5 minutes.

This makes a plain waffle or sandwich bread. Add butter, syrup, whatever. It's good!

This video shows the recipe for the Carb Quick Chaffle at the 5 min 40 seconds mark. He says 1 tbs Carb Quick has less than 1 net carb.

They sell gluten free bread and low carb bread here and they are both horrible. So I know exactly what you mean. It is expensive and not very good. I have a limit of a maximum of 125gms of net carbs a day and try to not go over that. I can eat really well on that. I try to get enough protein in, which I sometimes struggle with, and stay in the 1200-1400 calorie range which is a struggle for me. The fat calories can fall where they may. I need the fat for taste. I have tried open face sandwiches. I hope the pancake factory works. We have a lot of small appliances like that but never use them.

Still researching but will def let you know how it goes. I have tried some of that "low carb" bread but did not like the taste. I don't eat bread very often, but it's nice to have a hand held sandwich upon occasion so this may or may not be suitable. Time will tell....

Like you, I don't really count fat although it is def higher in calories per gram than either carbs or protein. So I try not to go overboard there, just not compulsive about counting them.

One recipe supposedly makes 2 chaffles, so using only 1 maybe would be ok for an "open face sandwich"

I have a little gizmo called "pancake factory" I was thinking this morning that I might try it, except it has a slight bowl on one side so the pancakes come out flat on once said and nice and "fluffy" on the other. Not sure how suitable it will be but won't know until I try it.

Have a great day!

As a nurse I used to counsel patients on Atkins so I am also very interested in Keto low carb recipes like this. Personally I would like a bread substitute occasionally but I have to watch calories as well as carbs. I don't worry about fat content at all, just calories and carbs. It doesn't seem like an egg and some mozzarella cheese would be that many calories but a half cup of cheese is 2 servings. I wonder if the variations are lower in calories. I can't do a lot of exercise plus I don't get a lot of daily calories if I want to lose weight and keep it off so some of my meals are the equivalent of less than one chaffle. LOL. A sandwich where the bread alone would be 516 calories without the meat would be too much for me. They make commercial hamburger buns that are only 80 calories. I have not made cloud bread and wonder about the calories in it too. Please share some of the other variations if you like them. I'm sure other people will enjoy them too.

Chaffles are a Keto staple -- used in place of bread. They can be adjusted to make more stable and hold up well for sandwiches such as burgers, etc. They can be sweet or savory (like tacos or pizza) The basic chaffle recipe is just one egg and a mozzarella cheese - between 1/3 and 1/2 cup, adding various seasonings, or some almond, arrowroot or coconut flours. Usually cooked in a waffle iron because there is more surface to heat so they are sturdier. Ones cooked on a griddle are softer and could replace dinner rolls if one wanted...... I am sure using lower fat cheeses would bring the calories down considerably, but I think Keto is more concerned with low carb more than low fat.

I am interested in them as a bread replacement for sandwiches. How can you tell I've been watching a LOT of videos, lol I have seen some interesting variations.

I don't know who originated the idea, but I like that it is low carb.

258 calories for a taco shell would be a lot but they are probably more filling than regular ones and maybe you would only need one taco. I wonder if they get the idea from fast food waffle sandwiches.

Cabbage soup sounds good.

Wow, Karen. That recipe looks really good. Only 2 gm net carb. Not sure where the "sugar" comes from as there is only 1 tsp of coconut flour. I wonder if almond flour would have any impact?

171 calories come from fat so I think using lower fat cheeses would cut the calories considerably.

I am currently recording all kinds of chaffle recipes. When I get the waffle iron, I will be all ready to go!

Mading cabbage soup in the instant pot today....

This is my very first effort at making chaffles with my Dash Mini Waffle Maker. They are about the size of an Eggo and you can reheat them in your toaster.

I think I'll make this again and leave out the chili powder, use a mild cheese and play around with seasonings. It will be a good bread side for meals. This taco flavor was perfect for chili!

This is made using 1 egg white instead of a whole egg. That plus the seasonings makes sure there is no "eggy" taste which I am pretty sensitive to!

There is a chaffle FB group.
Lots of ideas there! Sweet ones, softer cake like ones, etc.

I made scrambled eggs and added some cottage cheese and wanted some cheese but all I had was some cheeze whiz. I know it's not the best, but it's what I had.

Anyway, cooked over low heat. It was a very soft scramble, but it was so delish! Next time I hope I have some cheddar instead,

I made this today and ate 1/4 of it for my main meal. This recipe is for EIGHT servings. I only made FOUR.

It's tasty!







Chicken Philly cheesesteak casserole

Ingredients

1 tbsp butter
2 lbs chicken thighs or chicken breasts, cubed
4 oz. yellow onions, sliced
6 oz. green bell peppers, sliced
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
2 tsp Italian seasoning, divided
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
½ cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
12 oz. provolone cheese, sliced

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
In a large skillet on medium high heat, brown the chicken in butter.
When the meat is cooked, add onions, pepper, mushrooms, half of the garlic, salt, pepper and half of the Italian seasoning. Continue cooking until vegetables are just tender, but not soft. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix cream cheese, mayonnaise, the rest of the garlic, the rest of the Italian seasoning, Worcestershire and cheddar cheese. Add the meat mixture and combine.
Spoon into a 9” by 13” glass baking dish and top with the slices of provolone cheese.
Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until the casserole is bubbly and slightly browned.

I love fish and chips. I am not a huge fan of salmon other than salmon cakes. I like crab, shrimp, scallops, lobster for shellfish. I like ocean fish.

I grew up on the west coast where fish, especially salmon was plentiful. I always hated shellfish, and barely tolerate other fish (including salmon) unless it's fish and chips from a few select restaurants. which I don't eat often. Just not a fan....

My dad always fished for crappie and bluegill. So good. I love bluegill and catfish too. In other parts of the country they think catfish is disgusting. Fish is my favorite protein.

Healthy Mediterranean Baked Fish
By HWC Magazine 30 Minute Meals, Cardiac Friendly, Diabetic Friendly, Egg Free, Fish and Seafood, Gluten Free, Italian Cuisine, Lactose Free, Low Carb Italian

Succulent white fish poached in a bath of fresh tomato basil sauce, kalamata olives, capers and garnished with lemon slices.

Cook: 30 mins
Yields: 4 Adults or 1 Hungry Teenager
9 Full-screen
Ingredients
olive oil - 1 tablespoon

garlic - 2-3 cloves chopped

tomatoes canned - 28 ounces crushed

basil - 1/4 cup fresh chopped or 1 teaspoon dried

salt and pepper - to taste ( or Mrs. Dash)

white fish - 4 fillets

olives - 4 ounces kalamata (or your favorite kind of olives)

capers - 1 tablespoon

lemons - 1 sliced thinly

Directions
1Pre-heat oven to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F)

2In a frying pan place your olive oil and fry your garlic until fragrant. Add your crushed tomatoes, basil and salt and pepper (Mrs. Dash) to taste. (If you have a pan you can take from stovetop to oven that would be fantastic, an iron skillet is a little bit too rugged for this dish- so pity for me I had to dirty 2 pans.)

3Place your fresh basil tomato sauce into an oven proof dish/pan. Lie the fish on top of the fresh basil tomato sauce. Place thin sliced lemons on top of fish fillets. Add the drained olives and capers on top of fish and tomatoes. Add a little drizzle of olive oil on top before baking, if you wish.

4Bake your healthy mediterranean fish uncovered for about 15-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork. (Time in oven depends on size and thickness of your fish) Garnish with fresh basil and enjoy!


I tried this one tonight. Very good using our garden tomatoes and Texas crappie.

Its always too soon to quit.

It may take me longer to get to my goal than my original plan but I will get there.

I have heard that a lot of people take nutritional yeast if they have an iron deficiency, but beyond that, I don't know much about it. I buy flaxseed occasionally and usually put in muffins, but I haven't made or even eaten them for quite some time.... My sister gave me a recipe using almond flour instead of wheat flour, but I've only made them once. They were good, just not into baked goods now....

Thanks! My mom used nutritional yeast but I never was sure what she used it for. I use flax seed too in my Nutrim drink. I may check out the hemp seeds.

Thanks for joining in. I'm fairly picky so I think one of the reasons I like cheese so much and nuts is that they are ready to eat. I cook 3 meals a day almost 7 days a week so I look for new foods I might like. I like most fruits and all nuts. I don't like blue cheeses or real stinky cheeses. Cheddar is one of my favorites too and mozzarella. I love olives so I knew I would love olive oil. I mainly use it.

I have been following your discussion about cheese.

I have to admit that I am not a connoisseur by any means. I like one brand of cheddar which is my fav cheese, followed by Mozza and Parmesan (not the powdered junk you buy from the store shelf, lol I like all three freeze dried for snacks (eat out of the can ready), and for using instead of croutons in salads, etc - gives the salad a crunch factor..... If I'm putting in a dish, I like to use what passes as fresh, lol.

I do not like olive oil. Not even the smell of it. But then, the only oil I use is coconut oil, I won't use any vegetable or canola oil.

I hope everyone had a great Saturday and wish all the best for Sunday.

I did buy the 2pack of grilling cheese today and will give it a try next week. We have a BBQ/birthday today for BIL and tomorrow for oldest DS. So will have to be very cautious about my eating.

Also got some new olive oil that my GF recommendation yesterday. Unfiltered EVOO Brand is Fior Riore Product of Italy

Got my haircut this morning I had him to it shorter for our upcoming vacation.

Also purchased 2 books this morning. Mediterrean Diet for dummies and How Not To Die (by Dr. Michael Gregor).

Have a great Saturday.

Just came in for a look. Halloumi cheese! A favorite here. I cube it, fry in some olive oil, sometimes light on fire with a bit of booze in the pan, put out flames with lemon juice, toss on a handful of chopped parsley and serve with drinks. I need to try it on a sandwich too, but never have. Good stuff!

I understand what you mean. I try to decide whether something is a good value to me too. Good cheese is one thing that is worth it to me. I have thought about getting that grilling cheese you mentioned as it looks really good and has peaked my interest due to Karen. Good cheese is like good steak and is expensive but they do have sales. I try to buy mine when it is on sale. Sometimes if you ask when they might have a sale on a cheese they will decide to have one on that or will give you a discount. I got a really nice wedge of wonderful Brie for $4.99 a couple weeks ago at Kroger. I think th ings like this depend on what you value and that differs from person to person. I like high quality food and am willing to pay for it. I know a lot of people prefer to cut costs on food and I try to where I can but I would rather do without some foods than buy things that taste horrible to me. Things like imitation cheese. I want Heinz ketchup, my husband wants Miracle Whip, I only like Plochman's mustard. Other people prefer to pay to have their car detailed, get their nails done, their house cleaned, get a haircut, go to a movie, etc. I would prefer to do that stuff myself and get the cheese. Or some imported olives. I always eat cheese. Almost every day. I had a coupon to buy some expensive nuts recently and hubby and I loved them.

I did look at the cheese at or local Hyvee. The kind Karen mentioned was $10.99 and there was also what they called grilling cheese it was only $8.99 for 2 thick slices. I haven't been eating cheese but not sure I would try either of those at those prices if I was.

Kroger here got rid of their olive bar. I sure hope they keep the cheese bar as I love it. They don't have the selection they use to though.

They sell Halloumi cheese at Kroger in the cheese bar here in bags, not wheels. I knew about grilling it for a salad but not about frying it for sandwiches. I had a step sister who made cheese all the time. Let us know how this turns out.

My Italian grandma made me fried cheese sandwiches which I LOVED!

Grown up me tried frying cheese, lol. Anything I bought at the store. Needless to say, not the same! Of course she made her own cheese from her own cow's milk. I remember her having a ball of (almost) cheese in a coffee can with many nail holes in the bottom. She hung it on the clothes line and let it drip. I'm sure there is more to the recipe, lol.

Now I discovered the above recipe and will be going to buy this cheese very soon. I don't want deep fried, breaded, coated with anything. I want simple pan fried cheese and this looks like the right one!

It sounds like you are really into smoothies. I hope you find a lot you like.

I make a dusty rose smoothie which is strawberries and chocolate smoothie with added protein powder. Sometimes I will add raspberries, blueberries or even cherries if I have them in the freezer. I'm not much on variety, lol

Today I was looking at some back posts and saw the link to a number different smoothies. Some of them look very good, so now I have to print off what I can and make a little "cookbook" of just smoothie recipes. This will get me started.

1 tsp vanilla extract

Coating

I have never tasted Naan bread so can't compare. Haven't made these two recipes yet. Joe had other ideas for the weekend.

I did make this today and it's delicious!

LEMON CHEESECAKE FLUFF
5 carbs
Ingredients
• 8 oz. cream cheese (room temperature)
• ½ cup heavy whipping cream
• 3 tbsp lemon juice
• Ό tsp salt
• 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
• 1⁄3 cup powdered erythritol
Garnish
• ½ cup fresh blackberries (optional)
• 1 tsp lemon zest (optional)
Instructions
1. Use a hand mixer to whip the cream cheese and heavy cream until smooth and fluffy.
2. Add the lemon juice, vanilla and salt. If you prefer a sweeter taste, add some erythritol. Continue whipping until well mixed and smooth.
3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.

I put one berry on each cup of dessert. The ones I bought were HUGE.

I love naan bread but rarely have it. I'm wondering how this subs for it.

I have NOT made these yet but they look good so I'll be trying both this weekend. I'm on day two of my super low carb eating to try and break through this plateau I've been on.

MUSHROOM AND RICOTTA STUFFED CHICKEN BREASTS
4 servings 1 gm carbs each

Ingredients
• 4 chicken breasts (approx. 0.33 lb / 150 g each)
• 4 tbsp olive oil, divided
• sea salt and ground black pepper
• 2½ oz. mushrooms, sliced
• 1 tbsp fresh thyme
• 1 tbsp coconut aminos or tamari soy sauce
• 7 oz. ricotta cheese
• 1 oz. parmesan cheese, finely grated
• 1 tsp onion powder
• 1 tsp ground black pepper
• 4 sprigs fresh thyme
Serving
• 6 oz. leafy greens
• 1 cup sour cream



KETO NAAN BREAD

8 servings 1 gm carbs each
• Ύ cup coconut flour
• 2 tbsp ground psyllium husk powder
• ½ tsp onion powder (optional)
• ½ tsp baking powder
• 1 tsp salt
• 1⁄3 cup melted coconut oil
• 2 cups boiling water
• coconut oil, for frying (optional)
• sea salt
Garlic butter
• 4 oz. butter
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
Instructions
1. Mix all dry ingredients for the keto naan in a bowl. Add oil and boiling water (hold some of it back in case it's not needed) and stir thoroughly.
2. Allow to rise for five minutes. The dough will turn firm fairly quickly, but stay flexible. It should resemble the consistency of Play-Doh. If you find it’s too runny then add more psyllium husk until it feels right. If it's too firm, add some of the remaining water. The amount needed may vary depending on what brand of husk or coconut flour you use.
3. Divide into 6 or 8 pieces and form into balls that you flatten with your hands directly on parchment paper or on the kitchen counter.
4. Fry rounds in a skillet over medium heat until the naan turn a nice golden color. Depending on your skillet you can add some coconut oil to it so the bread doesn't stick.
5. Heat the oven to 140°F (70°C) and keep the bread warm while you make more.
6. Melt the butter and stir in the freshly squeezed garlic. Apply the melted butter on the bread pieces using a brush and sprinkle flaked salt on top.
7. Pour the rest of the garlic butter in a bowl and dip pieces of bread in it.

I made little cheese "pizzas" with portobello mushrooms for the "crusts." They were quite tasty! I assembled them with just a little plain tomato sauce each and some cheese on top, and then baked them at 350 for 20 minutes. Very simple when you get the pizza craving!

Smoothies are almost always very attractive. I have to drink a sort of one twice a day now but find I don't like it. The doctor wants me to stick with it.

I haven't made any of these yet but some of the recipes are combinations I would not have thought of myself and look pretty tasty.

I really want to try the ones with avocados. I always need the potassium!

Sounds like you are doing well. There are plenty of other low carb veggies but we do love cauliflower in this group. I love salads with leafy greens. I also love berries.

I’m back to SP after a long break. I have a recently diagnosed pre diabetic husband and I live in the south of France where almost no one talks about low carb anything. I just read all six pages of this topic and see I should probably embrace cauliflower recipes. Dinner tonight cold shrimp, and homemade cocktail sauce, cold asparagus with mayo/yogurt sauce and blueberries.

I was browsing through the low carb recipes, and your ham-cauliflower casserole stopped me in my tracks. I love cauliflower, but my husband *thinks* he doesn't. Sort of like his anti-zucchini obsession. I am going to try this. Wish me well!
P.S. Your recipe is what convinced me to join this team. I joined SP just yesterday.

Try, try again!

I don't fix much at a time for hubby and me. He isn't into leftovers much. I don't want them all week but 2 or 3 days are okay.

I think your cauliflower obsession has rubbed off on me. LOL. I have 2 huge ones in the fridge. I like to eat them raw. They really are good. Ham and cauliflower and cheese go together well.

PJ, your zucchini sausage crustless quiche sounds good! I think I'll give it a try.

TC, your recipe looks good too! I'm not usually a big fan of shrimp in recipes but I may try this. Also, I guess I'll look for some Old Bay seasoning.

Thanks, Ladies, for motivating me to try some new dishes!

Tried something this morning I give you general directions didn’t really write down anything. Nor do any tracking,

Zuchinni noodle quiche

I made zucchini noodles from one small one. Added 1 raw egg and some almond flour mixed together put into a 8x8 square baked at 375 for 15 or so minutes.

Browned some breakfast sausage (then made sure it was small pieces) added 2 eggs, some shredded cheese, salt and pepper. Stirred all this together and put on top of the baked shredded zucchini Baked again at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

Really good and I put leftovers in frig for another breakfast. It is sort of a quiche without the carb loaded pie crust. I think you could do several different things with the toppings.


I go by the name of PJ and live north of KC, MO. Winter in East Texas.

Onward and Downward

Its always too soon to quit.

It may take me longer to get to my goal than my original plan but I will get there.

I love them too and love to throw a bunch on a baking sheet. They are one of my hubby's favorite things.

I tried parsnips once and didn't like them. I thought they tasted like waxy carrots. But I didn't roast them and maybe I need to try them again.

I love oven roasted veggies! Now and then I slice and dice a variety of them, put them in a zip lock bag with some olive oil, the spread them on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. Everything tastes so much better this way, even Brussels sprouts.

All my life I never had parsnips. A friend told me to try them oven roasted so I did. Delicious! Very sweet. Sweeter than carrots. If you haven't roasted parsnips, give them a try!

This sounds good. I love cabbage with onions and smoked sausage. It's one of my favorite dishes. I would have to adapt it though as this probably has too much tomato and garlic for me. My GERD doesn't tolerate them well. I don't think I would puree it either. I like chunky soup but this is something I need to think about as I think my hubby would like it too.

Cauliflower: I use both depending on what I have. I haven't found any difference in recipes!

Cabbage Soup with Smoked Sausage and Fire Roasted Tomatoes.

1 head of cabbage any size
1 onion any size
1 can of Fire Roasted Tomatoes.
32 oz Chicken Broth (or veggie or beef broth, your choice)
Many giant spoonfuls of minced garlic
2 cups water
2 or more links of smoked sausage, your choice, sliced.

Chop cabbage and onion to your liking. Put in pot with broth and water. Cook on high until cabbage shrinks and gets limp. Add canned tomatoes.

Saute the sliced sausage in olive oil (or bacon drippings) and add to pot.

Add salt and black pepper. A little red pepper flakes if you like.

Bring to boil, lower heat and simmer about 20 minutes.

Carefully puree with immersion blender as much as you like. This gives a creamy texture. Leave lumps if you like, or not. Be careful if it is still HOT.
You can also take a few cupfuls of it and put in counter top blender, then add back to pot and stir..

I really have no recipe for this. I throw it together when I want hot and comfy food during cold weather.

It's good with parmesan or an Italian 3 cheese blend sprinkled on top.

Karen

Question - Do you guys always use raw cauliflower or can you substitute frozen in your recipes?

I think this would cause me to want to put tortilla chips in it.
