I discovered the butternut squash. This has been able to replace my potatoes that I miss so much while doing the Keto Way Of Eating (Keto WOE)
I find that butternut squash reminds me of sweet potatoes.
Ingredients1/2 butternut squash
4 Tablespoons of Butter (Divided)
1 Teaspoon xantham gum
1 Teaspoon Salt
¼ Teaspoon of Pepper
2 Cups of creme
¾ Cup Cheddar Cheese (Shredded)
1/3 cup Bacon Bits
Stuff you will needMandolin (Or patience to slice each potatoe to uniform thickness)
1 x sauce Pot
1 x oven safe casserole dish
DirectionsPre-heat the oven to 375 F.
Peel the squash. Using a mandolin, or if you have the patience, slice thin.
Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a pot and fry up the onion at medium heat.
Add the xamtham gum and continue to cook the onions till they are done. Less than 5 minutes.
Add the creme a ½ cup at a time. Continue to mix. Add the cheese, bacon bits salt and pepper. Continue to stir till the cheese is melted.
In an oven proof casserole dish, spray with Pam Cooking Spray. Then layer, squash, cheese mix, squash, cheese mix, etc.
For added flare, I topped it with some schredded cheese.
Bake for 75 minutes.
