bacon & cheese keto muffins

we are having unseasonably cold weather in new zealand… so much for a strong start to spring!  im making the most of staying inside by creating these delicious bites.

you cant get a much better match than cheese and bacon … made for each other – both flavours in these muffins are strong and satisfying.

so easy to make, all ingredients go in a bowl and come together using a hand mixer or food processer.  then 15mins later they are ready to eat! whhaaaaatttt!!!

get into it… they are a favourite in my house, even for those who are not keto!

baked monkfish, with garlic & bacon brussel sprouts, red cabbage and toasted almonds

delicious!!!

the savoury and rich notes of the garlic and bacon veges are a perfect compliment to the tender and meaty fish baked in brown butter & lemon slices.

texture comes from the cabbage and brussel sprouts which are only lightly tossed on the heat like a stir fry, and the toastiness of the almonds is the final icing on the cake bringing it all together.

such a quick and easy dish to prepare, but max flavour!

roast cauliflower & blue cheese soup, with crispy bacon, crispy kale & toasted hazelnuts

yes, soup can be a little boring.  this one is NOT.   pure decadence – the creaminess of the soup balances perfectly with the saltiness of the bacon, freshness of the kale and creme fraiche, and earthiness of the nuts.

i didnt serve any bread with this – its filling enough.  i used the crispy bacon as “dipping sticks” and it was gorgeous.  but if you do want the soup to go further, definitely serve with bread on the side.

i recommend taking your time roasting the cauliflower with a low temperature oven – it extracts more depth of flavour – but if you are in a rush, drive the oven up to 180deg… just know that a little flavour will be lost in the process.

indulge!
