JALAPEÑO POPPERS EGG CUPS

4 ounces cheddar cheese
3 ounces cream cheese
4 medium jalapeño peppers, de-seeded and chopped
12 strips bacon
8 large eggs
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375F. Par-cook bacon so it's semi crisp but still pliable. Save bacon grease to add to mixture.
Use a hand mixer, to mix all the other ingredients (except cheddar and 1 jalapeno) together.
Grease wells of muffin tin, then place par-cooked bacon around the edges.
Pour egg mixture into the wells of the muffin tin. Don't overfill.
Add cheddar cheese on the top of the muffin, then a jalapeno ring. Cook at 375F for 20-25 minutes.
Once cooked, remove from the oven to let cool.

HOMEMADE KETO NUTELLA 
200g hazelnuts
50g coconut oil
2 tbsp nut milk, such as almond
3-4 tbsp 100% cocoa powder
3 tbsp xylitol or sweetener of choice 
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Roast your hazelnuts in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for ca 10 minutes until the skins start to come off. You could also do this step in a pan (no oil) on a low heat.
Once the nuts are cooled, channel your inner hunter-gatherer and rub them between your palms to remove the skins.
Blend all ingredients in a food processor or the attachment of a stick blender until smooth. Adjust sweetener/cocoa if necessary. Add more nut milk if you like a runnier consistency.
This spread is more liquid than Nutella if kept at room temperature. I always keep it in the fridge. If you, however, plan to have it with ice-cream (just a thought), I'd keep it outside to make it just right for drizzling!

ALMOND FLOUR CREAM CHEESE CREPES 
INGREDIENTS
4	ounces cream cheese, softened
4	large eggs
3/4	cup almond flour
2	tbsp granulated Swerve Sweetener
1/4	cup unsweetened almond milk
Pinch salt
Oil or butter for the pan
INSTRUCTIONS
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a blender, combine cream cheese, eggs, almond flour, sweetener, almond milk and salt. Puree until smooth and well combined.
Set a 10-inch skillet over medium-low heat. Add just enough oil or butter to the pan to lightly coat it. Once hot, add a few tbsp of batter to the pan and swirl or spread into a thin layer that reaches the edges.
Cook until edges are cooked and can be loosened with a spatula. Loosen all the way around and then lift one edge gently and work spatula underneath (I found it easiest to grab the loosened edge with my fingers while working the spatula under the crepe so I could flip it).
Flip and cook on the other side until lightly browned. Remove and lay on prepared baking sheet, then continue with remaining batter. You can layer another piece of parchment on top of the first set of crepes as more come off the pan.
Fill with whatever your little heart desires. We love them with sugar-free Nutella!

LOADED CAULIFLOWER 
1 pound cauliflower florettes
4 ounces sour cream
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
2 slices cooked bacon crumbled
2 tablespoons snipped chives
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Cut the cauliflower into florettes and add them to a microwave safe bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of water and cover with cling film. Microwave for 5-8 minutes, depending on your microwave, until completely cooked and tender. Drain the excess water and let sit uncovered for a minute or two. (Alternately, steam your cauliflower the conventional way. You may need to squeeze a little water out of the cauliflower after cooking.)
Add the cauliflower to a food processor and process until fluffy. Add the butter, garlic powder, and sour cream and process until it resembles the consistency of mashes potatoes. Remove the mashed cauliflower to a bowl and add most of the chives, saving some to add to the top later. Add half of the cheddar cheese and mix by hand. Season with salt and pepper.
Top the loaded cauliflower with the remaining cheese, remaining chives and bacon. Put back into the microwave to melt the cheese or place the cauliflower under the broiler for a few minutes.
I visually divide the cauliflower into sixths. Serving size is approximately 1/3-1/2 cup.

GRILLED ZUCCHINI PIZZA --large zucchini slices, cut 3/4 inch thick (see recipe notes)
--olive oil, for lightly brushing both sides of pizza and oiling grill grate
--pizza sauce of your choice (I used canned red sauce, but you could also use Basil Pesto or white sauce. Extra sauce can be frozen for later. Choose sauce with the lowest grams of sugar for the South Beach Diet.)
--grated cheese (I used a blend of low-fat cheese called "pizza cheese," but you can use any cheese you'd enjoy on pizza.
--pizza toppings of your choice (I used low-fat turkey pepperoni, but you can also use sauteed mushrooms, Canadian bacon, cooked sausage, caramelized onions, sliced olives, anchovies, sauteed bell peppers, or any other toppings you'd like on pizza.)

KETO WRAPS - ALMOST 0 CARBS PER WRAP OR 1g PER TWO
Ingredients
4 ounces plain pork rinds, crushed (113 g)
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt optional
4 ounces cream cheese, softened (113 g)
6 large eggs*** see note
3/4 cup water (117.44 ml/ 170 g)
Instructions
Food Processor Method: Place the pork rinds in a food processor and process until they become a fine powder. Add the baking soda and salt and give it a little pulse to mix. Add the eggs and cheese and process until smooth and thick. Add the water and blend until all of the ingredients are completely incorporated. Pour into a bowl and let sit for 5 minutes.
Hand Mixer Method: Put the pork rinds into a large zip-loc bag and crush in batches with a rolling pin or the smooth side of a meat mallet. They should be completely pulverized into a powder. Place the pulverized pork rinds into a medium bowl and stir in the baking soda and salt. In a smaller bowl, blend the cream cheese with one egg until combined and smooth. Add another egg and mix. Add the egg and cheese mixture to the pork rind crumbs and add the rest of the eggs. Blend with the hand mixer until smooth. Add the water and mix until thoroughly combined. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
Preheat a pancake griddle over medium heat. When hot, oil the griddle and then gently wipe-off the excess with a paper towel.
Using a 1/4 cup measure, pour the batter onto the skillet and spread into a 5 inch circle with the back of a spoon. Make it as thin as possible. I dip my spoon in water to prevent it from sticking to the batter. Cook like you would a pancake.
Recipe Notes
Make sure to spread the batter with a wet spoon or you will end up with a thick pancake that will not serve well as a wrap. Thin the batter with a little more water if you notice it getting a little too thick to spread easily
