Hello my darling readers! I'm SUPER excited to have my very first guest post ever on my blog! Today I invited my wonderful Ketosister Gaby, IG's very own Lamikity who along with being an amazing person who is full of light, love and laughter has some delicious low carb recipes to share with us! She is the queen of all things bacon and a master at the art of baking savory goodies! In fact, if you have been following me for a while you might remember she is the inspiration behind some of the pancake recipes on this site! Her cream cheese pancakes are SO amazing that (while I had to adjust the whole cream cheese thing to be sour cream and add in psyllium to work with my crazy body - trust me, my body has its own ideas) I make them at least once a week! She is pure genius!
So please join me in welcoming her guest post with arms wide open and salivating taste buds!
Hello, future fellow ketonians or to the already lovers of bacon!!! My name is Gaby also known as “Lamikity” (IG) or by my hashtag #bakonkillah. I am beyond excited you are even reading this! It means that you are one step closer to becoming healthier and HAWT! Oh yeah! Healthy is always very, very rawr.
Keto is not a simply low carb diet or eat all the bacon you want kinda thing (I WISH!). It’s a science that allows you to understand how your body works when you transition between using carbs as the source of energy to mainly fat. Personally, it took me time. I have come to understand it better every day as I test and test and …yes….more testing. Even though it’s a sure thing when it comes to weight loss, it varies from person to person. One might be able to eat 40 grams of carbs no problem,while others only 20 miserable grams (that’s me!!! Lol) So GET YOUR KETO NERD-MODE ON! And read! Investigate and try… don’t quit!! It is a wonderful lifestyle!
I am a cheese lover <3 and I love breads!! (That’s 99% of us right? Lol) …and Cheesy Bread came from that. Some people use it as a pizza base. I eat it as a fold-it bread <3 Ohhh lawd! I feel the cravings!! Good craving to have, right? Is all cheesy-fat, and fat is love.
This magic happened while thinking about Oopsiebread and cheesecake… Cream cheese and eggs: I love you!
You can double, triple, or quadruple this recipe! Hahaha - tweak it, add more stuff! Just follow the basics!
Makes 4 servings
4 Ounces of cream cheese (cold is okay!)
1 JUMBO egg or 2 small ones (room temp is best)
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. good quality dried oregano or rosemary (or a few leaves of fresh basil as I tried the other day)
½ cup of romano cheese (shaved is better than grated) you can use a mix as well (parmesan/romano/asiago)
1 -2 Tbsp. of mozzarella ( not the fresh one it has too much liquid, use the aged block kind, already shredded or shred ityourself ) or you can use sharp white/yellow cheddar.
Pepper to taste (salt is not needed!)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
Get yourself a 12x9 pan and grease it with PAM or with the fat of your preference.
Mix all of the ingredients with a hand mixer and be sure it is well incorporated.
Pour the mixture into the pan and tap it in the counter so it’s completely coated.
Bake for 15 minutes and remove from the oven.
Increase your oven temp to 500 or hi broil
Wait for 5 minutes and add toppings (pesto, marinara, salami and morecheese). Just make sure you do not add too much, because this is a soft bread and it will not heavy toppings well.
Return to the oven and broil until golden-crispy-bubbly! -Approximately 5 minutes. Remove from oven and please…LET COOL FOR AT LEAST 5-10 minutes, it makes a HUGE difference.
