Hawaiian Hot Dogs

Hawaiian Hot Dogs

It’s time to bust out the BBQ. Hot dogs are a staple of the summer season, but with keto many people decide to skip the bun. Using cheese based dough to wrap around your hot dog is an ideal option to get in some extra fat and enjoy a bun. Let’s talk toppings. You could use any of your favorite meats or veggies really, but today I decided to try a ‘pizza’ inspired hot dog. Specifically Hawaiian - with pineapple, ham, and bacon! I also topped it with some sriracha mayo. You could also use ...

Monterey Mug Melt

Monterey Mug Melt

Here's another easy idea that you might enjoy if you liked the keto mug lasagna. This time we'll layer roast beef slices, pepper jack cheese, green chile, and sour cream. It's warm, melty, and will surely hit the spot for a quick lunch. This mug reminds me of a sandwich that a popular fast food chain used to make when I was younger. It had roast beef, green chiles, and cheese. I thought it would be fun to try layering all the best parts and enjoy it without the bread. If you're looking ...

Italian Cheesy Bread Bake

Italian Cheesy Bread Bake

Salami, provolone cheese, and tart peppers wrapped up in a cheesy dough - what more could you ask for? This Italian cheesy bread bake is a cinch to make and perfect to serve for lunch with a spinach salad. It's very filling, and is great to pack for lunches too. Most cheese based doughs are made with mozzarella and almond flour. This time were making it with Monterey jack cheese, coconut flour, and some flax seed meal. If you like the almond flour version better you can of course make ...

Buffalo Chicken Crust Pizza

Buffalo Chicken Crust Pizza

Looking for a pizza option that doesn't use almond or coconut flour? Try this buffalo chicken crust pizza. The crust is made from ground chicken thighs! It's topped with a creamy buffalo sauce, cheeses, and celery. It's very filling and you'll love how simple this is to create. Ground chicken can be harder to find and very expensive at the grocery stores I visit. So I decided to make this crust using boneless and skinless chicken thighs. You can often find these on sale, and it's easy to ...

Keto Mug Lasagna

Keto Mug Lasagna

You know that here at Ruled.me, we sure do love cooking things in mugs. (See our extensive mug cake collection.) I thought that this could be taken one step further and created a keto mug lasagna!  This is an easy to make lunch that is warm, cheesy, and satisfying. These directions will show you how I made the mugs in the photos, but keep in mind that this isn't like a baked dessert where you have to get things exactly right or risk failure. Feel free to switch up the ingredients or layer ...

Vegan Sesame Tofu and Eggplant

Vegan Sesame Tofu and Eggplant

This sesame tofu and eggplant recipe makes a wonderful light lunch, and is surprisingly vegan. The eggplant is julienned then tossed with a spicy Asian style marinade before it's cooked down into soft noodles. The tofu slices are crusted with sesame seeds then pan seared and caramelized with soy sauce. I love these eggplant noodles because the spongy texture allows them to soak up all of the flavors. I love zucchini noodles too, but sometimes it's nice to use something that's a little ...

I think they are perfect for someone who's looking to add a little bit more seafood to their diet, but feels a little trepidation about cooking fish. These salmon patties come together in a snap, and don't require a complicated, or messy, breading station. They are stuffed with fresh chopped herbs like chives and dill, Parmesan cheese, as well as a sprinkling of lemon zest for brightness. ...

Keto Okonomiyaki

Keto Okonomiyaki

What is okonomiyaki? Well, it's a deliciously prepared savory pancake that gets stuffed with meat and shredded cabbage. As if that's not enough, it's slathered in tangy BBQ sauce and mayo before finally dusted with powdered seaweed and bonito flakes. When the server brings the plate to your table the bonito dances across on top and your friends go, "Wow!" It's a really special experience. That's the simple version anyway, because Japan has hundreds of different types of okonomiyaki. The ...

Apple and Ham Flatbread

Apple and Ham Flatbread

This flatbread recipe brings traditional pizza up a notch. The combination of ham and cheese is just as classic as the combination ham and apples. Put them all together, throw in some red onions, a sprinkle of thyme, and we have a flatbread that you will want to make again and again. The best part about this apple and ham flatbread is the crust. This is not a crust that you will bite into and immediately think it’s low-carb. It is thin and slightly crisp and tastes even better than the ...
