DH and I starting Keto today

6 Jul

burger-wrap

And this was our first Keto meal. I have to say it was very delicious! I can hardly believe it was a diet meal at all :).

Ingredients:

4 oz beef patty

lettuce (I used romaine, but iceberg would probably work better for wrapping)

bacon (1 slice)

1 TBSP blue cheese dressing

1/4 avocado / sliced

Directions:

Salt and pepper both sides of the the burger patty before cooking. Grill the patties (I like to grill to avoid extra calories from grease and oil). Prepare bacon how you like it (chewy or crispy). Put avocado, bacon, blue cheese on top of the cooked beef patty and wrap it with lettuce. Enjoy!

Cheesy Bacon Jalapeno Poppers

27 Mar

Sooooo, this recipe is not healthy at all, but it has bacon. And cheese. And jalapenos. And it is very simple.

Last time I made it with muenster cheese, the poppers ended up being too greasy. Next time I will try using cream cheese or ricotta. Also, make sure not to use thick cut bacon, as the peppers will become too soggy, since the bacon will take longer to cook. Cut the bacon length-wise, so that when the bacon cooks, it doesn’t come off the peppers.

Preparation

Fill the jalapenos with cream cheese, and wrap it in a half slice of bacon. Bake at 400 until the bacon has cooked through.
