Cheesy Cauliflower Shepherd’s Pie

Traditional Shepherd’s Pie gets a low carb makeover with some mashed cauliflower and cheddar cheese. Comfort food at its finest!

Low Carb Cheesy Shepherd's Pie RecipeComfort food alert! Comfort food alert! It’s quickly getting to that time of year when we all crave soups and stews and meatloaf. Some parts of the world (mine) are already well underway in comfort food season. And as far as I am concerned, shepherd’s pie fits well within the definition of comfort. It’s meat and potatoes, man! Except that it’s not potatoes, at least not in this healthy, de-carbified version. That smooth, creamy topping has nary a starchy potato to be seen. It’s potato’s low carb nemesis, cauliflower! And it makes a fabulous topping for your meaty pie. It also doesn’t fill you up nearly so much with heavy starches, so you don’t walk away from the table feeling as if you just consumed a bowling ball. That means there is room for dessert!

The best low carb caramel sauce recipeCreating a really good, true-to-life caramel sauce with erythritol has been one of my low carb goals for a long time now. Almost from the first moment I started baking and cooking low carb, I found myself wondering if it was possible and absolutely determined to find out. I’d tried a few store-bought sugar-free caramel sauces and they were simply awful. They were laden with chemicals and they tasted like it too! So I had to find a way to make my own and I set my sights high. It had to be gooey, it had to be smooth, it had to have that wonderful caramelized-sugar taste. And it had to not harden and recrystallize upon cooling. Anyone who has ever worked with erythritol-based sweeteners will know that the last issue was the biggest challenge to overcome. I’ve made some great-tasting and great-looking sauces along the way, but they all had a tendency to harden up pretty quickly.
