I’m sure I’m not the only person who used to love sausage cheese balls. Those little balls made of Bisquik, cheese, and sausage were a favorite of mine for sure! I wanted to duplicate it as closely as possible while making it Keto friendly.
I’ve attempted this recipe many times. This was my first win at it.
Here’s what I did:
Keto Sausage Cheese Rolls
Cook 2 packages of breakfast sausage. Put the cooked sausage, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and 2 1/2 to 3 cups of shredded cheese in a bowl and mix. When cooled a little, add 2 eggs and 1 tsp. baking soda, and 1/4 cup almond flour. Mix well. Preheat an oven to 350. Roll them into balls and cook them until they brown. A warning: They will spread out so don’t put them too close to each other.
The other day, I was recollecting my diet in college. I can’t believe I survived eating the way I did. I was a vegetarian and most certainly the unhealthiest vegetarian ever. I would go to Burger King and order a Whopper with no meat. I ate monster size fat free muffins from the coffee shop on campus. Looking back, my diet was full of empty calories, huge amounts of carbohydrates, and completely lacking nutrients. Even with all the negative aspects of that college diet there were foods I thoroughly enjoyed and still look back at fondly. One of those was the breadsticks from Pizza Hut. I decided that I would like to re-create something that was similar and keto. I’ve made these twice and tweaked the recipe to make them better. Here’s how I did it.
This is a picture of my first attempt. My camera is not currently working for me to take a picture of the new recipe.
Loved In The South’s Keto Spicy Breadsticks
2 T. Melted butter
4 cups of melted cheese
1 1/2 cup mayo
2 beaten eggs
2 T. Jalapeños
2 T. Hot seasoning
2 to 3 cups of almond flour ( slowly add until it’s like a dough and not a batter)
1 tsp. Baking powder
1 tsp. Salt
Preheat oven to 350. Melt the butter in a bowl. Add mayo, beaten egg, almond flour, baking powder, salt, and seasoning. Stir. Add melted cheese. Incorporate with a bread hook in a mixing bowl or knead on an almond floured surface until well incorporated. Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Press out until long and flat. Bake until lightly brown. Cut with a pizza cutter. Enjoy as breadsticks or a base for a pizza. The possibilities are endless.
