These make the best Bacon and Tomato sandwiches!
Low Carb Cheesy Kale Biscuits
1 cup Almond flour
1 Teaspoon Xanthan Gum
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon dry Oregano Leaves
2 Teaspoon dry Basil Leaves
2 Tablespoon minced Garlic
1/4 Cup butter, melted (1/2 Stick)
5 Large Eggs, beaten
1 packed Cup destemmed and finely Chopped Kale Leaves ( I chopped them in the food processor)
2 Cup Cheddar Cheese, freshly grated
1 Cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
Preheat Oven at 350*
In large mixing bowl Whisk together all dry ingredients. Then blend in herbs and all wet ingredients, including cheeses and kale. Use a pastry cutter or your hands to incorporate all ingredients. Using a triggered scoop (about ¼ cup) dip out each scoop and place into a buttered muffin tin or buttered biscuit pan and bake for 20 -25 minutes or until done. Let cool about 10 minutes before removing from pan. Enjoy!
( I used a slider size bun pan for these. It’s slightly larger than a biscuit pan)
Wishing everyone a safe and Blessed 4th!
1 pound Ground Turkey or Pork ( browned and crumbled into small pieces, I used pork)
3 Medium Yellow Squash ( 5 Cups grated or chopped in food processor )
1/4 Cup Salted Butter ( or butter substitute)
3 Cups Freshly grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 Large Eggs Beaten
1 Teaspoon additive Free Season Salt
2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
Optional 2-3 medium Jalapeño Peppers ( deseeded and finely Chopped)
2 Cups Crushed GF Cheddar Crackers for topping ( I used Snyder’s Wholey Cheese)
Line Crockpot with foil or a crockpot liner. Grease inside of liner with butter or oil then when browned meat has cooled mix evenly with your hands all ingredients except GF crackers. Place lid on pot and set on low for 6-8 hours. Before removing from pot add crushed GF Cheddar Crackers on top, spreading evenly. Let casserole rest with lid off for about 10 minutes then serve. Enjoy!
Note: If you bake this casserole in the oven, you will need to parboil the squash before chopping to make casserole. In the crockpot the longer cooking time will let the squash soften and it is not necessary to parboil.
My Kale is doing so good this year, so I’ve been putting Kale in everything!
Cheesy Kale Meatloaf
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
2 large eggs
1 Cup GF Marinara Sauce
2 Cups finely chopped Kale leaves ( Remove the stem before chopping)
1 Cup GF Bread Crumbs or GF Oatmeal
1 Cup freshly grated Romano Cheese
1 Cup freshly grated Mozzarella Cheese
1 1/2 Cups freshly grated Parmesan Cheese (reserve for topping)
1 Tablespoon dried Oregano leaves
2 Teaspoons dried Basil leaves
2 Tablespoons minced Garlic
Preheat oven to 375*
Wash stem and chop Kale leaves in food processor until finely chopped. Place into large mixing bowl along with all other ingredients, (except Parmesan Cheese). Using your hands mix well until well blended. Pour into a greased 9×13 inch baking pan patting out meat mixture evenly. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until done and browned around the edges. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes to let meat reabsorb liquids. Top with parmesan and serve. Enjoy!
Note: This recipe also makes great meatballs! We like to top them with more marinara sauce. YUM!
