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!

Keto Baked French Toast

This is a way to have cake for breakfast and add in some protein with eggs!

It is a 2 part process, but goes quick once you are done with the baking. I recommend an 8 inch cast iron skillet as I used, but if for some reason you do not have one, you can go with a pie pan, glass preferred.

DO NOT FORGET to line your skillet or pie plate with parchment paper. Greasing it simply will not get out the cake after baking. DO NOT SKIP LINING WITH PARCHMENT! Ok, I will quit shouting, lol!

If you love cast iron as much as I do, then you would absolutely LOVE my 2nd cookbook “Chaffles Cast Iron and The Crock” !!

Low Carb Whisked Pancakes

I have another pancake recipe called Keto Blender Pancake Recipe , but it uses cream cheese and the blender, which usually is not a problem, but I wanted to re-create the pancakes that mix in a bowl!

Spring is approaching and it has gotten me thinking of recipes I can have on hand for camping season!

This recipe works out well for any mix and pour situation! Another nice thing about these is that the texture is improved with the mixing of the flours in the base πŸ™‚

  • 3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts sliced lengthwise
  • 2 large eggs; whisked
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Chicken Breading

  • 1 cup crushed pork rinds
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese; grated
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 cup oil for frying

Marinara Sauce

  • 1 large can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 2 tsp garlic; minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp monkfruit sweetener/or erithrytol

Topping for baking

  • 1 cup mozzarella, shredded
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1 tbsp basil
  • 1 tbsp parsley

Instructions
 

Chicken Cutlets

  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • Slice chicken breasts lengthwise. In a small bowl whisk eggs, garlic powder, parsley, salt and pepper.
  • Add to a shallow bowl. Allow chicken cutlets to sit in the egg mixture, rotating to coat. Allow to sit 15 minutes covered.

Chicken Breading

  • In a shallow bowl mix together the pork rinds, almond flour, parmesan, garlic powder and onion powder.
  • Dip chicken in crumb mixture one at a time after letting the egg wash drip away a bit before covering in the breading.
  • Flip and press lightly to coat the other side. Place the chicken cutlets on a baking sheet. Let them sit for 5 minutes while you heat up the frying oil in an oven proof skillet. The oil will be at the correct temperature when the end of a wooden spoon forms bubbles when placed in the oil.
  • Fry each cutlet for 5 minutes on each side with the oil at a medium temperature. Remove from the skillet once they are all fried. Remove oil from the pan and wipe clean.

Marinara Sauce

  • Dump all sauce ingredients in the skillet and simmer for 10 minutes to meld the flavors.

Assembling the dish

  • Now with the marinara sauce in the oven proof skillet, put the chicken cutlets in the sauce.
  • Spoon the sauce over the cutlets so they are covered. Mix all of the topping ingredients together in a small bowl then sprinkle over each cutlet in the skillet.
  • Place the skillet in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until bubbly and cheese is melted.

Notes

If you do not have an ovenproof skillet, put the cutlets in a 9x13 pan and cover with sauce, then cheese, proceed with baking the cutlets as described.

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!

Low Carb Cranberry Orange Scones

A scone is a British baked good, usually made of wheat, or oatmeal with baking powder as a leavening agent and baked on sheet pans. A scone is often slightly sweetened and occasionally glazed with egg wash.

These scones I made low carb when I subbed the wheat flour for part coconut and part almond flour. This lends to a tender crumb that does not break into a million crumbs when you take a bite🀣

Now this recipe is ultra versatile as you can swap out extracts and swap out additions!
