Serves 6 Low- carb spinach gets a creamy, indulgent take in this keto- friendly version of traditional spinach au gratin. We used cream cheese, not flour, to thicken the sauce, and topped it with chopped almonds instead of bread crumbs. Or use keto- friendly bread as the topping. 2. 3. 4. 5. Preheat oven to 375¡ F. Butter a 9x9 glass baking dish with 1 Tbs. butter, and set aside.
Melt remaining butter over medium heat in large skillet. Add chopped almonds, and toss to coat with butter. Transfer to shallow bowl, and stir in cheese.
Add olive oil to skillet, and sautŽ onions 3 minutes. Add spinach in batches, stirring to mix with oil and adding more spinach as it wilts. Cover, and cook 1– 2 minutes, until just wilted. Remove from heat, and transfer to prepared baking dish.
In heavy saucepan, combine cream and cream cheese, and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until smooth. Add white pepper and nutmeg, and season to taste with salt.
Pour mixture over spinach, stirring once, and sprinkle almond and cheese mixture on top. Bake 15 minutes, until mixture is bubbly and top is golden. Serve immediately. Per Serving: 3. 4. evenly between cups of a 6- cup muffin tin. Bake 5 minutes, until just golden. Remove from oven, and set aside.
While crusts bake, combine cream cheese, eggs, vanilla, and remaining erythritol in a standing mixer or large bowl. Beat in standing mixer or with an electric hand mixer until creamy and smooth, about 5 minutes.
Pour cheesecake mixture over crust in muffin cups. Bake 15 minutes; mixture will look soft, but will firm up with cooling. Remove from oven and let cool briefly. Gently press one or two pecan halves into top of each cheesecake. Refrigerate pan at least 4 hours, or overnight.
To serve, remove muffins from tin, divide among individual plates, and serve immediately. Per Serving:
