I am doing so well going into the holidays. But let’s be realistic...lol. I love a good holiday bake off or delicious holiday dinner sides!

Does anyone have anything they love because they have a good tweet to kinda stay on track?

Have you discovered chaffles yet? There is a corn bread chaffle which some have used to make dressing with.

I made the keto dressing from the savory shortbread last year. While I loved the bread for turkey sandwiches over the weekend, I wasn't impressed with it cubed up and made in to dressing. Others love it though.

I'm also going to experiment with This Old Gal's Bourbon Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake. I made it successfully per the recipe before. This time I plan to use Gnom-Gnom's keto "graham cracker" crust for the base, and use birch Xylitol for the white sugar and Swerve brown sugar for the brown sugar. I'll probably add a tiny bit of pure stevia extract as well, since Swerve is only 70% as sweet as sugar.

Gnom-Gnom also has a receipt for keto candied pecans, which I use to decorate. I'll give that a try as well.

This is what my full carb version of the Bourbon Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake looked like. I'm hopeful ketofying it will work.

Ooo...

I haven't made this yet, but I find Two Sleevers receipts to be very reliable. Here is her keto pumpkin pie. Again, I'll probably use Gnom-Gnom's graham cracker crust instead.

Always up for new recipes that I can enjoy without having to "cheat" too much, especially around the holidays. Will share any I find and gladly try one or two from here too. 

 

Honestly, one of my favorite things to make right now, side dish-wise, is brussels sprouts roasted in the oven with high quality bacon. 

 

Total time: ~25 mins, including prep. (max. 20 mins cook time)

 

Ingredients:

~ 3/4 - 1 lb of sprouts (enough to fill a large cookie sheet with space between them)

2-3 slices of thick cut bacon, chopped into 1/2"-3/4" pieces (add an extra slice if you're a bacon fiend like I can be sometimes!) 

~ 2 tbsp your choice of oil, suitable for a 400* oven temp

Salt and pepper to taste

Grated parmesan (optional, to taste) 

 

Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 400*.

2) Spread the brussels sprouts out on the cookie sheet, cutting larger sprouts in half to help with even cooking (for easier cleanup, I cover my cookie sheet in foil first)

3) Drizzle oil over the sprouts. 

4) Dust the sprouts with salt and pepper to taste (I also occasionally add some garlic powder) 

5) Scatter the chopped bacon pieces over the entirety of the sheet. 

6) Place sheet in preheated oven on middle rack for 10 minutes

7) After 10 minutes, stir sprouts, using wooden spatula (or other oven temp-appropriate utensil).

8) Return sprouts to the oven for an additional 7-10 minutes (depending on your oven and how well done you prefer your sprouts). 

[I usually check mine after 7 minutes and add more time if needed.]

9) Once sprouts are to your desired done-ness, remove from the oven. 

10) If using parmesan, sprinkle on the sprouts when you first remove them from the oven. 

11) Stir sprouts and pour into serving dish (for nice presentation) and/or just let the fam dig in with a serving spoon (if just a casual family dinner). 

 

Store any leftovers in whatever handy airtight container you have available. I usually reheat mine in a skillet on the stove top to get some crispness in them. :)
