Keto Low Carb Turkey Casserole!

This is truly an amazing comfort food for the whole family.

Wonder what to do with the turkey leftovers from the holidays?  Here ya go! You will NOT regret trying this one. It literally makes 10-12 really nice size servings, so don’t let the presence of peas or cream of mushroom scare you. When divided by 10-12, they can easily fit into your macros no matter what they happen to be. Feel free to add bacon on green onion if you want more of a baked potato vibe.

Ingredients:

  • 2 bags cauliflower rice (I get mine from Trader Joe’s), microwaved for 10 minutes, stirred, and then another 10 minutes.
  • can cream of mushroom soup
  • 2.5 cups shredded cheese (cheddar or colby jack work perfectly)
  • 5 cups chopped cooked chicken or turkey
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt (more if you like, so taste before baking)
  • 2-14 ounce cans of mushrooms (one if you’re not a huge fan)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Make sure that your cauliflower has been microwaved (for 20 minutes) in a large bowl. Add all other ingredients (but only 1.5 cups of the cheese) to the cauliflower and stir to combine. Taste to see if you would like to add more salt or pepper. Spread into a large casserole dish (mine was 9X13). Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.

Makes 10-12 servings.

Hello Keto Crackers!

Yep, I said that correctly. You can make crackers in about 5-6 minutes.

Yep, they are just as crispy as they look!

For those of you hemming and hawing about getting an air fryer, JUST DO IT! I like the toaster oven combo because I can also use it as an oven, warmer, and most importantly…an air fryer. I also like that it has so much surface area. It is perfect for making pizza, wings etc.

This model is my favorite one as of now.

All you need for this recipe is the Mission Low Carb Tortillas. For the record, the tortilla can me up to 25 crackers depending on size of your slices, so one is plenty for a crispy snack!


Simply take a pizza cutter, and cut the tortilla vertically and then horizontally in one inch pieces.

Turn the air fryer on to 325 degrees. Place the tortilla pieces in a single layer in the fryer basket. Air fry until the pieces turn a golden brown. Allow the pieces to cool compeletely.

Serve with all of those dips that are low carb that you’ve been dying to have with something crunchy as a vessel!

Low Carb Keto Gyro Bread!

Amazing Gyro “bread” topped with Trader Joe’s tzatziki!

I absolutely LOVE gyros. This was such an amazing replica of the flavors that my hubby and I devoured it, and my son was asking me to make more the next day. The gyro meat and tzatziki came from Trader Joe’s, and they are the perfect match for the gyro craving.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Package Trader Joe’s gyro meat
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup Trader Joe’s tzatziki sauce
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 2 tbs cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum (optional)
  • 1/2 tspgarlic powder

Method:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine almond flour, garlic powder, salt, xanthan gum, 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, and cream cheese and stir in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for about a minute and 30 seconds.  Stir the mixture. If it is too stringy, heat for another 20-30 seconds in the microwave. Stir egg into the mixture with a fork until combined. With wet hands, form into a large rectangle on a baking sheet with parchment or a baking mat. Spread with wet hands being sure not to create a dough that is too thin (if it is getting tears or holes, it is too thin).

Sprinkle the dough with a thin layer of mozzarella cheese, feta cheese, and onion. Cover the cheeses with the gyro meat. Press down to help the ingredients stick together well enough to make a single fold in order to make a “calzone” style creation. You could also do layers of ingredients on half of the dough and then just fold the remaining dough over the top.

Seal all edges with wet fingertips.

Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven when the crust reaches a golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool for ten minutes.

Slice and top with tzatziki (do not do this if you plan to save some for leftovers). Top with the sauce right before eating or right after reheating as leftovers.

Makes 6-8 servings. A serving is about 2 slices that are about one inch wide.

Air Fryer Nachos and Pizza!

Ok, don’t even hem and haw about it. Just go out and get the air fryer toaster oven. I know that the possibilities are endless, but I feel the most excited about the ability to make CRISPY tortilla chips and CRISPY thin crust pizza!!!! Seriously, just buy it. Just click and buy. You won’t regret it! Pictures of heaven below.

All you need to do is set the air fryer to 300 degrees. Take a Mission Low Carb Tortilla, and spray each side with some avocado oil (or coconut oil). It cooks VERY fast, so keep an eye out for when it becomes a little bubbly and lightly browned, and flip to do the same on the other side.
