Keto and Gluten Free Holiday Recipes

0

I’ve been on a ketogenic diet and gluten free journey over the past two years. Y’all, journeys are tough and sometimes we fail, but we keep on trying. I’m not following a “fad diet.” The keto diet has actually been around for almost 100 years now and was created to help epilepsy sufferers. I’ve had numerous health issues and eating a low carbohydrate diet and gluten free has been positively life changing for me.

I’ve tried a lot of different recipes over the years – some good, some bad – and have complied a list of my favorites. I yhope you love these recipes as much as I do!


Sausage and Squash Casserole
Yields 6
This is one of my favorite low carb comfort food recipes. The squash and cheese reminds me of macaroni and cheese. I buy mild or country sausage and Colby Jack cheese. The original recipe called for cheddar cheese. Use whichever cheese you prefer! You really can't go wrong.

Cake
  1. 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  2. 1 t baking powder
  3. 1 t baking soda
  4. 1/8 t sea or pink salt
  5. 1/2 T pumpkin pie spice
  6. 1/2 T cinnamon
  7. 1/2 t all spice
  8. 1/4 cup sweetener of your choice
  9. 4 large eggs, separated
  10. 1/4 cup of pumpkin (fresh or canned)
  11. 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  12. 1/4 cup of sour cream
  13. 1/4 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  14. 1 t vanilla extract
  15. Parchment Paper
Cream Cheese Filling
  1. 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  2. 3/4 cup of heavy whipping cream
  3. 1/2 t vanilla extract
  4. 1/8 t sweetener of choice
Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 325 F. Butter the sides and line the bottom of a jelly roll pan with parchment paper, set aside. In a medium bowl, add the dry ingredients and blend well with a whisk. Separate the egg yolks and add them to the dry ingredients. Add the egg whites to another medium bowl. Blend egg whites with a hand mixer until soft peaks form. Add the remaining ingredients to the dry mixture and blend well. Then fold the beaten egg whites into the batter. When the egg whites are partially folded in, taste for sweetness and add more if necessary. Continue to fold in egg whites but do not over mix the batter. Spread the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  2. Flip the warm cake, right out of the oven, onto a slightly damp kitchen towel (one you have spritzed with water). Be sure the cake is on the edge of the towel. Starting at one end, carefully roll the towel and the cake up into a log. Place the cake in the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes or until completely cool.
Cream Cheese Filling
  1. In a medium or large bowl add the cream cheese and beat with a hand mixer until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend until the frosting is thick and smooth. Taste for sweetness and adjust if needed. After the cake has cooled, carefully begin to unroll it from the towel. Don't try to flatten it out as you spread the filling on the cake. There may be cracks in the cake - this is okay. Just continue to cover the cake with the filling and be sure the go over the edges. When you get closer to the inside of the roll you will have to carefully continue to fill with the filling so the cake doesn't break. Carefully start with the inside of the roll and roll the pumpkin roll back up and carefully transfer to a serving plate. (Optional) Dust the roll with a light coat of powdered sugar substitute.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups of cooked cut green beans
  2. 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  3. 4 ounces of cream cheese
  4. 1-2 t dried onions
  5. 2 T gluten free soy sauce
  6. pepper to taste
  7. 1-2 ounces of shredded mild cheddar cheese
Instructions
  1. Drain the green beans well and pat dry with paper towels. Too much liquid on the beans will thin the sauce. Place heavy cream and cream cheese in a pan over medium heat. Whisk until the cream cheese softens and the sauce is smooth. Add the dried onion and soy sauce. Continue to stir until the mixture thickens and coats the back of the spoon. Add the green beans and simmer, stirring often. Sauce will be very thick and cling to the green beans. If not continue to simmer and stir. Taste and add pepper to taste. Place the green beans in a small, heat proof dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Broil, watching carefully, until the cheese bubbles and turns golden.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups of heavy whipping cream
  2. 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  3. 3/4 cup of powdered erythritol sweetener
  4. 4 large eggs
  5. 1/2 t vanilla extract
  6. 1/2 t ground nutmeg
  7. 1/2 t ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Separate the egg yolks from the whites. In a bowl, stir the egg yolks until smooth. Set aside the egg whites. Add almond milk, heavy cream (shake up the carton before you pour it), powdered erythritol, and beaten egg yolks to a saucepan, and place over medium to low heat. Stir together the ingredients until the mixture reaches 160 F, about 10 minutes, stirring constantly. The mixture should not be hot enough to simmer. Remove the saucepan from heat. Add vanilla extract, nutmeg, cinnamon, and whisk until the spices are well mixed. Let stand to cool, and then refrigerate for at least a few hours or overnight to chill.
Notes
  1. I never buy powdered erythritol. I measure out the granual erythritol and put it in my blender to make it powdered. I like to enjoy this at night in my living room with the Christmas lights on after my kids have gone to bed with some dark rum.
