Low Carb Sausage & Pancake DIppers

You know the little pancake and sausage dippers you would get in the frozen section?

I remember from the 80s, since you know I am an 80s kid, lol. Well this could also be a to-go version of pancakes and sausage together as well if you are not having the nostalgia like me!

These come together in the blender and will be perfect for quick morning on-the-go breakfasts when you need something more than a smoothie or bar…. you need some MEAT and FAT to carry you till lunch! This packs it all into a little muffin size punch!

To reheat, I recommend the oven on 350 for 5-8 minutes. The microwave will make these rubbery….. just a warning!

Recipe Notes

Low Carb Tot Casserole

Growing up in the 80s, tater tots were the go to for quick crunchy-potato appeal next to a grilled cheese or hamburger. My Mom used tater tots in a famous casserole I am sure EVERYONE from the 80s remembers….Tater tot casserole where you use the canned cream of mushroom soup.

I would not be caught using canned soup today, but have re-created this nostalgic fave with low carb ingredients and a homemade cream soup that rivals the canned stuff!

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F. In a 10” cast iron skillet brown and crumble the beef with the onion powder, onion and salt. If you do not have a cast iron skillet, add cooked and crumbled beef to a greased 8x8 pan.
  2. To make the sauce, add all of the sauce ingredients to a medium saucepan EXCEPT FOR THE CREAM CHEESE AND XANTHAN.
  3. Stir well with a whisk over medium heat until uniform. Bring to a boil then add cream cheese. Whisk until melted. Sprinkle xanthan or glucomannan over the boiling sauce and whisk well.
  4. Lower to medium heat so it simmers. Simmer for 3 minutes until it coats the back of a spoon thickly.
  5. Stir the sauce into the cooked beef and spread evenly in the skillet or 8x8 pan. Top with Green Giant Cauliflower tots in one layer.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and top with 1 ½ cups of shredded cheddar cheese. Return to oven for 5 minutes until its melted. Serve with a vegetable.
  7. Leftovers can be reheated in the oven at 350F for 8-10 minutes.

Low Carb Raspberry Muffins

I love any type of muffin and raspberry is one of my favorite kinds! You can of course use blueberries or blackberries as well! This recipe makes about 16-18 muffins. I use silicone liners, or paper liners. I also fill my muffin wells 1/2 to 3/4 full.

Low Carb Maple Donuts

You know those donuts you can get at the local bakery that are slathered with the maple icing…….yes, these are what I used as my memory to re-create them into low carb!

It is so close to the real thing that my kids went crazy over them!

First you need to make sure you have some Keto Maple Syrup either made with my recipe HERE, or purchased. AND you also need to make sure you have some Keto Brown Sugar made up with my recipe HERE, or purchased.

You will also need a donut pan, silicone preferred for easy removal from the pan! Non stick may not release in one piece once baked!

Using maple extract will give you the closest possible flavor to what I have created. If you sub maple syrup for the maple extract it may add too much moisture and result in runny glaze and too moist donuts. Following the recipe as stated is how you will get the results I did!

Now you can enjoy maple glazed donuts again with this re-creation of a carby favorite! The donuts turn out moist and the glaze is perfectly set and keeps up to 5 days! This recipe makes 6 donuts. 1 donut = 8g carb // 4.2g fiber // 3.8g NET carbs --- 6g protein // 23g fat

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and set your donut pan on a baking sheet so it is ready.
  2. In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, salt, and baking soda. Whisk well and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine wet ingredients: eggs, heavy cream, keto maple syrup, melted butter and vanilla.
  4. While whisking the wet ingredients, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Whisk well until batter is smooth.
  5. Now put all of the batter into a piping bag, or use the corner end of a gallon ziploc bag. Pipe batter evenly into each donut well in your pan. Smack pan on the counter to release any bubbles in batter and to make it even.
  6. Bake 20-25 minutes until it is set and lightly golden.
  7. Let donuts cool in pan for 5 minutes before slowly turning onto a cooling rack with a pan underneath. Make your glaze!
  8. In a small saucepan add all of the glaze ingredients and heat over medium heat while whisking until it is completely smooth and thin.
  9. In a quick motion, drizzle glaze over each donut. It works best to follow the golden circle on the donut so you cover it as evenly as possible. You MUST do this in a swift motion as the glaze will harden and crystallize in the pan before you are able to coat them all if you take too long. If it hardens in the pan before you are able to coat them all, reheat and try again with the remaining amount.
  10. Donuts keep on the counter for 1-2 days. For longer storage keep in fridge up to 5 days.

Low Carb Fudge Brownies

Not only are these luscious brownies super fudgy but they come together in 1 bowl!!

You CANNOT skip the step of warming up the eggs, or making sure they are room temperature. If you do not, you will get clumpy batter and possibly scrambled eggs!!

Store them in the fridge and if you want MORE chocolate, top with a fudge icing!

Low Carb Pork Loin Chops

I normally do not choose to make pork chops because they are finicky and tend to be dried out if you do not watch them carefully!

Not when you coat them and bake them on a rack! The rack allows for the heat to get around the entire pork chop and not sit and get soggy!
