Can I tell you something? If you’re following a keto diet plan (or even if you’re not), these Bacon Wrapped Broccoli Stalk Appetizers are completely addicting! And by adding the Creamy Smoked Paprika Horseradish Dipping Sauce, you’re taking your snacking to a whole other level!
Bacon & Sausage
NOW it’s time to do the low carb party dance, people. Addicting Keto Guacamole with Rind Dippers have the creaminess you love, and the crunchiness you crave. You’ll never miss the chips.
As a family, we’ve decided we’re going to start eating a lower carb diet. Since that’s the case, you’ll be seeing more and more recipe on this site that are of the low carb/keto variety. That said, since I’ve always loved sharing a wide array of delicious recipes with you here, from appetizers to desserts, I do not plan on entirely refocusing my blog in that way.
However, what you CAN expect is a generous sprinkling of lower carb and keto inspired recipes in between all the other cooking and baking recipes you’ve come to love and expect from Kudos Kitchen. Something for everyone is my motto, along with a pinch or two of everything in moderation. 🙂
This recipe for Delicioso White Bean, Fennel & Italian Sausage Soup is one I found, and adapted, from Cooking Light Magazine. I didn’t change the recipe much, but I did add more fennel (because I love the light anise flavor of fennel a lot lately), and I also increased the amount of white beans from the original recipe, and I omitted the sage and parsley because I forgot to purchase them at the market. Doh!
Other than that, this recipe I’m sharing is pretty much just as it was written in the magazine. I DO NOT take credit for this recipe, but I do take credit for sharing it with you here on Kudos Kitchen in case you missed it in Cooking Light Magazine. I strongly urge you to make this soup. It’s delicious!
This recipe for Slow Cooker Meatball Lasagna is a family favorite of ours. I’ve made several different versions of this traditional Italian favorite (as you’ll notice in this post), and they’re all easy, tasty, and completely satisfying!
The day I saw him make it, I kept waiting for chef Symon to add heavy cream to his dish while he was cooking his skillet chicken thighs (I think it was for a Five in Five), but he never did. I wanted to, so I did. I also omitted the mustard, added shallots, and didn’t shave my Brussels sprouts. I quartered them.
This is a meal that comes together quickly and finishes on the stovetop. Since I used long grain brown rice to make this Sausage & Shrimp Jambalaya Kudos Kitchen Style, the cooking time is longer than using an instant brown rice. However, either will work. It only depends on how much time you have. But don’t worry, I’ll give you directions for both.
The majority of the recipes you’ll find here on Kudos Kitchen are my own original creations. However, from time to time because of my blog I’m approached by publishing houses about doing cookbook reviews. This post (and the recipe for Healthy Broccoli Salad) is one such review. All the opinions I share are 100% my own.
The secret to keeping these bacon wrapped chicken breasts so moist, tender, and flavorful (besides the bacon wrapping), is to bathe the chicken in a saltwater and sugar brine for 30 minutes before seasoning and wrapping the breasts in bacon. The difference the brine makes is unmistakable and is well worth the extra 30 minutes of basically hands-off time.
If you’re looking for a fall salad with all the colors of fall and can be eaten as a main course or side dish, then look no further! I made this salad to bring to a dinner party a couple of weeks ago, and it was such a hit that I was asked to blog about the recipe as soon as possible!
