Ingredients
  

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temp
  • 8 tbsp butter, room temp 1 stick
  • 1/2 cup whey powder
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Whisk together eggs and cream of tartar in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until frothy.
  • Add cream cheese and butter and whisk until well combined and smooth.
  • Add flour, whey, arrowroot, baking powder, Xanthan gum, and sea salt. Whisk until it becomes like wet dough.
  • Using a spatula fold in mozzarella cheese (the recipe works best and tastes best with a good quality organic mozzarella cheese)
  • With oiled hands gather up dough and shape into a ball. You will want it to fit cupped in the palm of your hand. Slightly bigger than a ping pong ball. Ours makes 12 even dough balls pressed down into a silicon pan that is made especially for hamburger buns (click to view the one we used).
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top.

UPDATE: made this again today and used finely chopped macadamia nuts in place of the almond flour! It was truly amazing. We are going to do that from now on!

Servings 12 servings
Calories 218 kcal

Ingredients
  

  • 2 medium-large yellow squash washed, and cut into thin slices
  • 16 oz bag frozen chopped spinach thawed, and squeezed to drain
  • 1 medium-large onion cut into slices
  • 8 ounces butter unsalted, cut into pat sized portions (see picture)
  • 12 ounce bag Mexican blend shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 1-2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1-2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2-1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Instructions
 

  • After prepping onions, spinach, and butter. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  • Gather seasonings. We do not measure but shake each one on when it is time.
  • Line a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with parchment paper (makes for super easy clean up but is optional)
  • Place about 6 pats of butter on bottom layer, before squash slices. Spread apart from one another.
  • Add a single layer of squash slices.
  • Sprinkle naked squash slices with each seasoning, we did a pretty even light sprinkle of each seasoning.
  • Add sliced onions as a single layer.
  • Add half of the squeezed, drained spinach.
  • Add half of the shredded cheese.
  • In a bowl combine almond flour, parmesan cheese, and the amounts listed for each of the seasonings. Mix to combine. Sprinkle half of this mixture on the casserole now. Save remaining half for the top of the casserole.
  • Add 6-8 pats of butter.
  • Repeat layers starting with naked, squash slices.
  • Top final layer with almond flour mixture.
  • Bake in a 375 degree F preheated oven for about 45-60 minutes. Check at about 40 minutes and keep an eye on it until it is nice and golden brown on top. Exact time will depend on your oven.

Notes

You can wash and slice squash, cut onions into slices, and squeeze, drain spinach ahead of time. This makes throwing the casserole together so much quicker. I usually prep everything the day before.

Keto Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

Keto Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

While many may consider this a wonderful breakfast, we actually love this for dinner! Breakfast for dinner, brilliant, right?! You can make the biscuits earlier in the day or even the day before. That makes this a super-quick breakfast, lunch, or dinner to whip up. Especially when time is an issue. Don't forget to serve them with a batch of creamy-cheesy scrambled eggs!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb breakfast sausage Beeler's
  • 4 tbsp cream cheese
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Make a batch of our Keto Angel Biscuits (we did not include this in the prep or cooking time because you can make these ahead of time).
  • In a pan cook sausage until done and break into pieces with a spatula as it cooks.
  • Remove sausage from pan, leave the oil from the sausage in the pan.
  • Place remaining ingredients in the pan with the oil from the sausage. Using a whisk, slowly and gently stir gravy until cream cheese has melted and it is well combined. Allow to simmer for about 5-6 minutes (do not boil, just a light simmer, about on medium heat), whisk frequently to prevent the mixture from burning/scorching on the bottom. 
  • Add sausage to the gravy and stir and cook for a few more minutes. 
  • Serve hot over our Keto Angel Biscuits and we hope you enjoy!

Notes

Please be EXTRA CAREFUL when picking out your ground breakfast sausage as the majority of them contain, add sugar. Check the ingredients and the carb count. We use Beeler's brand breakfast sausage, zero added sugar, zero carbs! 
The macros are only for the sausage gravy. If you use it on one of our Keto Angel Biscuit's you can add in the macros listed from that recipe (1 biscuit is just 4.3 net carbs [9.2 carbs and 4.9 fiber] see the recipe page for the remaining macros here). 
So with the gravy and biscuit, your total net carbs would be just 4.5 g! Throw in some creamy-cheesy scrambled eggs, which would not add any more carbs, and you have a breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner of champions!
