EASY KETO CALZONE RECIPES

This keto calzone is that the excellent very little gift of heat icky goodness, all bound up in a very tasty low carb foods package that you simply will eat the go!

Traditional recipes rely on protein, the macromolecule in flour, to form structure — it acts as a glue that holds everything along, whereas adding fluff. Since baking with almond flour doesn’t have this glue-like capability, we’ll herald another low carb food list ingredient to fill within the gap.

EASY KETO CALZONE RECIPES

INGREDIENTS :

  • 1/2 Lb Italian Sausage casing removed
  • 1 Low Carb Pizza Crust
  • 1/2 Low Carb Pizza Sauce or any pizza sauce with no sugar added
  • 1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese shredded
  • 1/2 Red Onion sliced

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. Make the pizza dough per recipe, and divide the dough into 2 balls. Set aside while you make the filling.
  2. In a large nonstick, cook the sausage until brown, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you cook it.
  3. Place the sausage on a paper towel-lined plate and toss onions into the nonstick. Add oil if there isn't enough grease left in the pan.
  4. Saute until onions are soft and translucent, about 10-12 minutes.
  5. Preheat your oven to 425 F.
  6. Roll 1 of the pizza dough balls between 2 sheets of parchment paper using a rolling pin, until the dough is about 7" wide. You want the dough to be of thick (or else it will tear).
  7. Remove the top sheet of parchment paper.
  8. On 1/2 of the dough, spread a spoonful of pizza sauce.
  9. Sprinkle with 1/2 the sausage, cooked onions, and shredded cheese. Don't overfill your dough! Fewer toppings are better and will prevent the dough from tearing.
  10. Grab the edge of the parchment and fold the calzone dough in half, then peel back the top layer of parchment.
  11. Damped your hands, and crease the edges of the dough. I like to push the ingredients in toward the center to get more crust along the edge. With damp hands, you can also smooth out any tears that may have formed. I also used a spoon to trace the edge between the crust and the calzone.
  12. Brush your calzone with olive oil, and pop it in the oven for 22-25 minutes, or until the top becomes golden brown.

SPICY LEBANESE-STYLE POTATOES (BATATA HARRA)

September 02, 2019
Easy to form and fast to disappear, these Spicy Lebanese-Style Potatoes, referred to as Batata Harra, area unit a flavorsome starter, side dish, or party snack.

SPICY LEBANESE-STYLE POTATOES (BATATA HARRA)

These potatoes area unit hot, spicy, and flavorful—a filling dish plan. In Lebanon, these potatoes area unit typically ready by deep-frying and it's completely delicious that approach. Except for the sake of convenience, I value more highly to prepare them by preparation within the kitchen appliance. They are available out great—browned and crispy! Why not serve these aboard some spread, tabbouleh, or muhammara?

This instruction makes enough to fill a sheet pan. If you would like over that, double it, however make sure to use 2 pans. If you crowd the potatoes onto one pan, they won’t bake and crisp properly. And for the cilantro detractors: worry not, you'll be able to simply substitute parsley, if necessary.

SPICY LEBANESE-STYLE POTATOES (BATATA HARRA)

INGREDIENTS :
For the Potatoes:

  • 1½ Tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2lbs (around 1kg) of potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces (about 5 Russet potatoes)

For the Seasoning Oil:

  • 1 large clove garlic, minced (or 2 cloves if you love garlic)
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon coriander
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper for medium, 1 teaspoon for hot
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Finishings:

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt (or more, to taste)
  • 2 heaping Tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • squeeze of lemon juice

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Peel potatoes and cut into bite-sized pieces (of a similar size). Toss them in a bowl with the 1½ Tablespoons olive oil and ½ teaspoon sea salt to coat the pieces evenly. Scatter the potatoes on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, making sure they are all in one layer and evenly spaced. Roast for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. You don't need to turn or flip the potatoes.
  2. When the potatoes are done, leave them on the baking sheet and set them aside. Make the Seasoning Oil by combining the olive oil and the minced garlic in a small saucepan over medium heat. You want to fry the garlic to get the raw taste out but you don't want to brown it. So only fry for about a minute then remove the pan from the heat.
  3. Put the cumin, coriander, paprika, cayenne, and black pepper into the saucepan while the oil is still warm to bloom the spices. Stir them around for about a minute then use a spatula to scrape all of it--the oil, garlic, and spices--onto the roasted potatoes. Toss the potatoes to let the seasoned oil coat them completely. Sprinkle on the extra salt and the finely chopped cilantro and toss again to combine. Serve hot or warm, with a squeeze of lemon, if you like.
