Feta and Bacon Bites
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
3/4 cup almond flour
2 cups mozzarella
1/4 cup feta cheese
1/4 cup green onions
8 strips cooked bacon
1/4 cup cucumber —> This isn’t in the recipes but I had a lot of cucumbers sooo
Optional: sriracha mayo, which I did not use
1.Melt together the cheese and flour. The recipe suggests doing it in a pan on the stove, but I hate doing that, so I just microwaved them for about 1 minute and stirred to mix
2.Roll out the dough on a non-stick surface until about 0.5cm thick
3. Using a rough cookie cutter, cut out circles of dough the same size as a muffin tin base. Place these circles in a muffin tin. You have to prevent sticking some how – I used muffin cups but the cheese mixture really stuck to the paper. You could also try just greasing the tray.
4. Add cooked bacon, chopped green onions, and feta to each dough base
5. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes, until golden brown
6. Add chopped cucumber and mayo, if you want
7. That’s it!
