Pork Chops with Basil Butter

Pork with Basil Butter

This recipe is simple and yet so savory! The butter really adds so much to the dish. This is a great one for summer! Have some extra plates nearby since you will do the pork in your skillet and then the beans and then the tomatoes each separately in the same skillet.

Pizza Meatloaf (GF/low carb)

Pizza Meatloaf (GF/low carb)

If you are looking for a delicious meatloaf recipe that is not the same old thing….look no further! This is a crowd pleaser! Even though it tastes like comfort food, it’s super nutritious. This is made gluten free using almond flour instead of bread crumbs. It’s not dairy free, but you could absolutely substitute the mozzarella cheese for a dairy free option if you need to. 

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup pizza sauce, divided (look for no sugar added)
  • 1 cup almond flour or gluten free bread crumbs
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 tsp dried oregano 
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt 
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 2 lbs ground beef 
  • 1 lb Italian sausage 
  • 1/2 lb sliced deli ham
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella, divided
  • 1 jar (6 oz) sliced mushrooms, drained

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 375F. 

In a large bowl, combine the eggs, 3/4 cup pizza sauce, almond flour, onion, green pepper, oregano, garlic, salt + pepper. 

Crumble the beef and sausage into the mixture; use your hands to mush it all together well. 

On a piece of parchment paper, pat the meat mixture out into a 12 x 10 inch rectangle. 

Layer the ham, 1 1/2 cups of mozzarella and mushrooms over the meat, making sure to leave about 1 inch along the edges. 

Starting at a short end, roll the whole thing up like a jelly roll. Make sure to pat the seam so that the stuffing doesn’t come out. 

Place the meatloaf/roll into a 13 x 9 inch casserole dish with the seam side down. Brush the remaining pizza sauce on the top. 

Bake uncovered, 1 hour. Sprinkle with the rest of the mozzarella. Bake another 15-20 minutes, until no longer pink inside. 

Let set for a few minutes and then transfer to a serving platter. Enjoy!

Sausage Rolls (Keto/Low Carb)

Keto Sausage Rolls

I have made these for breakfast, but they would be great for any meal (or having small portions for a snack). Low carb, gluten free, keto: these make for a nutritious but also super delicious option! Next time I might even use some “Everything But the Bagel” seasoning just because I love it so much! The flavor as is is amazing!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 eggs (one whole, one separated)
  • 1.5 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 3 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 4 uncooked sausages/brats
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

DIRECTIONS:

Separate one of the eggs and set the yoke aside for glazing the pastry later. 

Add the white of the egg + the other whole egg to the almond flour, mozzarella, butter and salt. Mix well. 

Form a ball with the dough, using your hands. Flatten the ball slightly, wrap it in parchment paper and chill in the fridge for an hour. 

Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper or use a silicone mat. 

Once the pastry has chilled for an hour, divide it into 2. Put each half of the dough between two pieces of parchment paper and roll them out so they become rectangles (about 12″x4.5″) that are around 1/8″ thick. 

Place 2 sausages next to each other, lengthwise on one of the rectangles of rolled out dough. Wrap the dough around so the sausages are completely covered inside the dough, pressing any lose edges together to seal the dough. Do this with the other sausages and dough then place on the prepared baking sheet. 

Brush both sausage rolls with the egg yoke you have set aside. 

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown. Serve warm!

You can absolutely freeze these for later!
