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.

Cheesecake Muffins

Crust:

8 oz. Cream cheese softened
1 egg room temperature
1 tsp Vanilla flavoring

Keto Ice Cream – Single Servings

I’m a fan of kitchen gadgets so I came across the Ice Cream Pan on Amazon. This is a great tool to have so that you can make a bunch of different flavors of keto ice cream in one batch.

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. So when this happens it’s time to reinvent those leftovers! We decided to make a meatball sub but in a keto kind of way, aka a meatball chaffle. 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!
