If you already own The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen, you may have noticed I have plenty of great dinner recipes in that book too. Some of them are on the easier side and some are a little more complex. Well, think of Easy Keto Dinners as a companion book to EKK, with more of the great keto main course recipes you love. 50 of them, to be exact, and some delicious easy sides to go with them. Easy Keto Dinners is all about expanding your healthy dinner repertoire and shaking it up, so you don’t fall into dinnertime boredom.
Tips and tricks to make your keto lifestyle easy!
Since I already outlined the whys and wherefores of the ketogenic diet in my big cookbook, I kept Easy Keto Dinners focused on the subject at hand: making your life as easy as possible. To that end, I discuss all the ways you can cut down on prep-time and cooking, so you can spend more of your precious time with your loved ones. Everything from how to thaw meat quickly to your best options for store-bought sauces and other ingredients.
I really had a blast writing this book. As a busy mother of 3 with a thriving home business, I need easy keto dinner recipes too! I really put myself through my paces, figuring out the best ways to cut corners without sacrificing flavor or healthfulness. Many of these recipes became quick family favourites.
And for those of you who avoid dairy…you’re in luck! At least 50% of the recipes in the book are dairy-free or have dairy-free options. Many are egg and nut-free too.
Keto Skillet Meatloaf
Now this particular recipe didn’t make the cut for Easy Keto Dinners, but only because I came up with it after my manuscript was already in to my editors. But it’s a pretty good example of what you might see in the book. It’s easy to put together, it uses simple cooking techniques, and total cooking time is less than 30 minutes.
And it’s full of great flavor that the whole family loved…winner winner, keto dinner!
Cheddar Jalapeno Skillet Meatloaf
- 2 lb ground meat I like a mix of beef and pork but you can do all beef
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 2 jalapeños minced
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese divided
- Preheat the oven to 375F.
- In a large bowl, combine the ground meat, almond flour, jalapeños, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, and 3/4 cup of the shredded cheese. Use your hands to mix well together.
- Spread the mixture evenly in a 10-inch oven-proof skillet (cast iron is best). Sprinkle the top with the remaining shredded cheese.
- Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until the loaf is firm and the center reaches 160F on an instant-read thermometer.
- Remove and let cool a few minutes before slicing. Serving with toppings like sour cream, chopped cilantro, and guacamole.
