EASY CHEESE SAUCE RECIPE! LOW CARB & KETO FRIENDLY!

July 27, 2019 49 By William Morgan


Hi everyone, welcome back to the kitchen and today have I got a treat for you
This is a keto and low carb friendly cheese sauce. There is no flour
No starch no extra binders that are gonna get in the way of your carb count for the day
Let’s go, see how this all comes together
Ok, we’re gonna go over all of the ingredients for this keto friendly cheese sauce
Which I might add is probably the best and easiest cheese sauce
You will ever make my kids prefer this to my regular cheese sauce
Rick really likes this cheese sauce, and I know you’re gonna love it too. This is perfect
You can make it ahead
You can make it in
a big batch or a little batch you can cut this recipe in half if you prefer if you’re just one person you can
double it if you like to keep it on hand, we’re gonna be using this in a couple recipes coming up on the channel and
It’s very very easy
you can store the leftovers and an airtight container in your fridge for up to a week and you can reheat them as needed and
You’re just gonna love it because you can put this on your vegetables. You can make a mock mac and cheese with it
You can do something special with it that we’re gonna be doing for Super Bowl and I know you’re gonna love it. So
Super simple ingredients, you’re gonna start with 8 ounces or 2 sticks of butter 8 ounces of cream cheese
That’s one brick of cream cheese
1 cup of heavy cream
2 cups of the shredded cheese of your choice this today and I’m using a sharp cheddar
Make sure that you’re grading your own hard cheeses because the cheeses that are pre grated in the store
If you are on keto you know that you’re counting carbs
Um, and the grated cheese has carbs in it
The brick cheese does not and that’s because they put a lot of preservatives additives and stuff so that this cheese doesn’t stick together
So you want to make sure that you don’t buy the pre-shredded cheese?
We’re gonna season this up with some cracked black pepper some cayenne pepper some onion powder and garlic powder
You can feel free to throw a few drops of Worcestershire sauce in there
If you like completely up to you and a couple of great some nutmeg never hurt in a cheese sauce
So I’m gonna bring the induction burner over and we’re gonna get started I’ve gone ahead and I’ve melted our butter and our cream cheese
Together over medium-high heat now. I warn you the first time I made this I thought oh my goodness. This isn’t gonna work
This is looking like a hot mess because that cream cheese
Seriously looks like it’s curdled. Okay, but don’t worry. This is all gonna come together
Now pour your heavy cream in there
And give it a stir
You want to bring this back up to temperature before you add your cheese
All right, you see how this has come together into a smooth mixture the cream cheese
has it kind of binded with the heavy cream and the butter and
yes, this looks like a serious like
heart attack on a plate but if you’re doing keto you understand that you’re doing high fat moderate protein and low carbs, so
Go ahead and put your cheese in and give it a stir
And that being said, you know rictus wanted me to mention that if you are on a low-fat diet
This recipe is definitely not for you
if you are on a low-carb or a keto diet, then this is definitely
Something you’re going to be able to enjoy on the regular. Look at how beautiful that is. Gorgeous. Now, we’re gonna add our
seasonings
Give that a stir if you don’t like cayenne pepper leave it out
You can put some paprika in here or you can just leave it the way it is
You don’t have to season it at all if you don’t want you but I am a firm believer that the seasoning really does
Take this to a new level
It really is amazingly delicious
I was really quite surprised at how lovely it was when we first made it
I made it to serve over some steamed broccoli to go alongside of our
Our protein for that evening and I gotta tell you it’s simply delicious
It’s beautiful and creamy and it just coats the spoon just like you would want it to
Now I will warn you that when you put this in the refrigerator and reheat it
it’s going to look like it has separated and it may give it a good whisk and
After maybe the first time you do it, it’s gonna separate really bad when you reheat it now. I reheat mine in the microwave
But you can easily reheat this on top of the stove over a low heat
If it does separate and it feels like it’s not coming together for you
You can add a couple more tablespoons of heavy cream or a nice
dollop of sour cream and
That’s gonna magically help it bind back together and it’s gonna be beautiful and delicious and you’re gonna love it
Okay, here we go we’ve got our cheese sauce, it’s all ready to go
and I mean look at how beautiful the consistency of this stuff is incredible and
Never would I have thought of making cheese sauce with no binder? Okay
I never would have thought about it
but if you really think about
It that cream cheese is a great binder as well as the heavy cream because I don’t really use heavy cream
In my cheese sauce, I used half-and-half
But this stuff is
incredible you could also if you like add about 1/4 to 1/2 a cup of
parmesan, like finely ground Parmesan cheese in here
whole
parmigiano Reggiano not the green stuff that you get on the grocery store shelf that is full of fillers and
Carbohydrates so you want to make sure that you read the labels this stuff is incredible. You can put it on cauliflower on
Broccoli on green beans you can use it to make a mock mac and cheese with cauliflower. You can pour it over
Chicken beef pork you can put it over a hamburger and it will just be delicious
So if you’re on keto or low-carb, you definitely want to try making this cheese sauce, I’m gonna have Rick give this a taste
I know that he’s gonna like it but
