HFLC Keto Low Carb Cheesy Jalapeno Mushroom Bites
These are so easy to make. Simply grab some baby bella (crimini) mushrooms, or white, some bacon (what keto recipe would be complete without bacon, am I right?!), butter, cream cheese, jalapenos, shredded cheese (I chose the fiesta blend aka Mexican blend), and some paprika, salt and pepper.
12 crimini (baby bella) or white mushrooms (0.6g carbs)
8 oz. bacon (2.8g carbs)
2 tablespoons butter (0 carbs)
8 oz. cream cheese (9.6g carbs)
4 tablespoons fresh jalapenos, finely chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheese (your choice!) (2g carbs)
1 teaspoon paprika powder
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400°F
Fry bacon until crispy
Let cool on plate – then crush the bacon
Leave bacon fat in pan
Remove the stems from the mushrooms – set mushrooms on a greased baking dish
Finely chop the mushroom stems
Add in chopped stems and butter, saute
In a small bowl, mix in the stems and bacon with the cream cheese, jalapenos, shredded cheese, paprika, and salt and pepper
Spoon mixture into the mushrooms
Bake for 20 minutes
These are practically gone before I even remove them from the oven. They are so delicious, no one misses the carbs – that’s what makes this the perfect low carb keto appetizer, in my humble opinion. I think I probably make these once a week! And, if you share them at a party, make sure you bring some recipe cards, because everyone will be asking for it! Hope you enjoy as much as I do!
