One of my favorite keto things to make is cheese based dough. It is incredibly versatile. These feta and bacon bites are just one of many things that you can make with this type of dough. Not only are these bites super easy to make, but cook time is roughly 15 minutes! They are also a great snack to keep for on-the-go.
For this recipe I used a muffin tin, however you don’t have too. You can put these on a cookie sheet (lined with parchment paper) or a silicon baking mat. I used a muffin tin so they would stay in place while baking or putting them in the oven. If you use a muffin tin then you will want to use liners so that your dough doesn’t stick to the tin.
Keep an eye on them once they are put into the oven. They do brown up in no time.
Yields 24 servings of Feta and Bacon Bites
- ¾ cup almond flour
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella
- 8 slices bacon, cooked
- ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
- ¼ cup chopped green onions
- 3 tablespoons sriracha mayo, like Sarayo
- Salt and pepper to taste
1. Preheat your oven to 350°F
2. In a nonstick pan over medium heat, combine your almond flour and mozzarella. Stir constantly.
3. Your flour/cheese mix will form a dough like consistency after about 5 minutes.
4. Place your dough between two pieces of parchment paper. Roll flat with a rolling pin.
5. Use a cookie cutter or glass to cut out 24 circles. If you run out of dough then form the remaining bits into a ball. Heat it up on stove, then roll it out again.
6. Place the circles of dough into your muffin tin (or on a cookie sheet.)
7. Top with the bacon, feta, and onions.
8. Bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes, until the edges are browned. Cool, peel off the liners, and top with sriracha mayo!
