Quickie Trick for Reheating Leftovers: Salami Cups

Not exactly a recipe, but here’s a little something I made for breakfast the other day – leftovers reheated in little cups made of salami. Just pop the salami in a muffin tin, fill with whatever low-carb, keto-friendly leftover you have on hand, top with cheese, and pop in the a 350 degree oven for ten minutes until the cheese has melted and the leftovers are reheated. More pics after the cut.

Winner Winner Chicken Lunch

Pan-Fried Chicken Mushrooms en Creme.png

I couldn’t think of a clever preamble to this recipe. I considered referencing Food, Inc. and the terror of chickens it instilled in me. Then, I considered a reference to the amazing Jacques Pépin, his apparent love of chicken, and the recently released Jacques Pépin: The Art of Craft from the American Masters series.

But, you know what? This is simple food. Let’s give it a simple post. Fuck it.

Jucy (Lamb) Lucy

Lamb Burger

I’ve found it pretty easy to get stuck in a ground-meat rut on this Keto diet – it’s cheap and easy and reasonably fatty. So, the other day, I challenged myself to do something a bit more interesting and a lot more photogenic. And, it’s still super easy! Here’s my ground lamb version of the classic Jucy Lucy on a little arugula salad.

Keto Baking is Hard

Despite all the benefits this keto lifestyle has provided, goddammit do I miss baked goods.

So, this weekend, I tried my hand at two different baked goods – one savory, one sweet. The verdict? Maybe keto baking isn’t for me. 😦

Still, I took some pictures and thought I’d share my failure all the same.

Brocc-iflower Soup. Get hype.

You ever buy a bunch of vegetables thinking: “Oh, man. I’m going to eat so healthy! Vegetables are amazing and I am a person who eats them!” and then a week later you still have mounds of untouched broccoli and cauliflower in your fridge?

Well, here’s a soup you can make with that untouched broccoli and cauliflower. Hell, you might even go to the store and just pick some up – this nonsense is pretty fucking tasty. (Though all the heavy cream may have something to do with it, but, whatever: #ketolife, ya’ll.)

Here’s what you’ll need and how to put it all together…

Frrrrriiii-ttaaa-ta!

Frittata

It’s just a word I enjoy saying, you guys. And, it’s food I enjoy eating.

I made this mushroom leek frittata the other day mostly because I was out of bacon and didn’t want to eat just eggs. Also, I had these unused, purposeless leeks and mushrooms just taking up space in the fridge. Stupid freeloading, good-for-nothing vegetables and fungi. Get a job!

Anywho, if you’ve never made a frittata before, please be advised that it is easy AF. See for yourself…
