Are You Craving Some Good 'Ole Down Home Southern Comfort Food?
I am for sure! I am super excited to share this post and these recipes with you! My family and I have lived in North Carolina for about 10 years now and we love it! We love the weather, all the friendly people, and definitely all the Southern traditions - especially the food!
I wanted to share some of the classics that I have come across over the past years. I love the idea that they are low carb, sugar free, and ketogenic so they should fit into most people's healthy diet. You can eat these and not feel guilty. Perfect, right?
Kentucky Butter Cake
Shrimp and "Grits"
Smokey Barbecue Ribs
For those of you following some of my posts, you probably know that I LOVE cheese. Of course I'm going to love pimento cheese. One of my favorite things to do is top a grilled hamburger patty with pimento cheese. It melts every so slightly and adds a richness you will LOVE. Add bacon, tomato, onion, and lettuce and I am in heaven.
Classic deviled eggs are delicious! For a keto version of these deviled eggs, make sure to use a mayonnaise with no sugar and not Miracle Whip. My favorite mayonnaise is the Avocado Oil Mayonnaise from Sir Kensington. That stuff is GOOD!!
This is a fantastic ham recipe that my family loves. Most recipes use brown sugar on the ham, which of course tastes amazing but are not a good ketogenic option because of the sugar. This recipe is keto friendly which I love.
Collard Greens With Bacon
For those of you not sold on collard greens, you have not tried this recipe. It is a MUST. Michelle from Divas Can Cook is an amazing Southern cook!
Keto "Cornbread" Muffins
I am sure that most people will agree with me that the hardest part of a low carb and keto diet is not eating bread or pasta. It is my mission to find seriously good "bread" substitutes so I don't always feel like I am going without.
This is a tasty sausage gravy from Simply So Healthy that I think you'll like! I provided a different biscuit recipe above, but Simply So Healthy does have a biscuit recipe that goes along with her sausage gravy you might want to try. If you do, let me know how you like it! 🙂
