Keto Chip Burger (Ice Cream Sandwich)

I made this recipe two ways. The first recipe using Perfect Keto Keto Cookies and the second recipe with homemade cookies. I also used my own keto ice cream but if you want to use a store bought brand like Rebel that would be fine. You do what’s easiest for you!For this recipe I will be using my vanilla keto ice cream for use in these keto chip burgers. If you want to see all the keto ice cream flavors I came up with that are tried and true, click HERE. Here’s what you’ll need for the traditional vanilla ice cream:

Keto Vanilla Ice Cream Base for 4 chip burgers:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Lakanto Vanilla Syrup (or 2 Tablespoons powdered sweetener)
  • (optional) 1 scoop unflavored collagen (I use Perfect Keto)

You’ll need a top and a bottom for each chip burger, or in other words, 8 cookies total. I like to use Perfect Keto Chocolate Chip cookies as a quick and easy method to make this recipe. You can also use this keto chocolate chip recipe and make your own keto cookies!

Make your ice cream ahead of time in an ice cream pan or mason jar.  Once your ice cream is ready, take one cookie and spread 1/4 cup ice cream on it. Cover it with an additional cookie and squish down. Roll the chip burger in Lily’s chocolate chips. Place back into refrigerator for about 10 minutes and let harden if it gets too melty.

If you make a bunch of these up ahead of time I would suggest wrapping them in plastic wrap and storing them in the freezer. Enjoy!

Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are an easy way to make a homemade keto chocolate chip cookie. I like to use whey protein in baked goods to give the baked goods a better taste and texture. My preferred brand that I mainly use is Perfect Keto unflavored whey protein powder. You can use  whatever works best for you. I would just make sure you pay attention to the sugar used. This recipe was inspired by wellplated.com but since the original recipe was not keto I had to make some changes to make it keto. The keto conversion was successful and delicious! Here’s how you make these delicious keto chocolate chip cookies.

Keto Curry Chicken & Cauliflower Rice

One of my mom’s casseroles that she always made us which was also a family favorite was curry chicken and rice. It was basically a layer of rice that was mixed with a can of cream of mushroom soup and a cup of sour cream. Then you mixed in the curry, salt and pepper with the chicken and then baked it. It was so easy and delicious. Well I finally converted this family favorite to keto and now it’s a new tradition.

Kettle & Fire makes absolutely delicious bone broths and when I saw they had a mushroom bisque I immediately thought of mom’s recipe. So I decided to give it a try and see if I could make a winner!

What you’ll need:

Directions:

In a large fry pan, add chicken and soup. Simmer until chicken is cooked through. Add sour cream, curry and salt & pepper and mix well. Cover and let the flavors come together for about 5-10 mins. Cook cauliflower as directed on packaging. You can either serve the mixture on top of the cauliflower or you can mix it all in together.  Enjoy! Makes 4 servings.

Scotch Eggs & Raspberry Muffins

 

This is a fun breakfast we have on the weekends when we want something a little special, yet still keto approved! Make these up ahead of time for easy grab and go keto breakfasts! My kids love these so I can honestly say they are kid approved too! Here’s how you make them.

Scotch Eggs

  • 1 dozen hard boiled eggs
  • 2 pounds breakfast sausage (I used Jimmy Dean)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Mix the sausage, spices and parmesan cheese in a mixing bowl. Divide the mixture into 12 evenly sized meatballs. I used a food scale for an exact measurement but you can eyeball it for size.

Flatten the meatballs into pancake shapes and wrap around the hardboiled eggs. Make sure it smooths around the egg evenly so it cooks even. Repeat for all 12 and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 mins.

Meatball Chaffles

I’m sure you have lots of leftovers from your holiday celebration. Sometimes after several days of those leftovers they don’t sound good anymore.

Make your chaffles, add your favorite cheese and serve with a side salad!

Use your favorite chaffle recipe for the bread portion of the sub or you can use my favorite chaffle recipe with this link.

Warm up your leftover meatballs and sauce and prepare your chaffles. I cut my meatballs in half to make them shorter to fit better in my mouth. Layer the chaffle with meatballs, sauce, and provolone cheese. Serve with a side salad and this tasty keto balsamic dressing!
