    • 1/2 cup Garlic (minced)
    • 2 cups Arborio Rice
    • 3.5 cups chicken broth
    • 2 pints canned Tuna (home caught and canned is the best)
    • 1 bag Semi Dried Tomatoes (3 ounces)
    • 3 cups Mozzarella Cheese (thinly cut)

    • Jacobsen Chili Salt
    • Freshly chopped Basil & Oregano

Directions

    1. Coat bottom on a large pan with olive oil and heat.
    2. Brown onion and garlic.
    3. When the onions are translucent, add Arborio rice. Brown the rice for 1-2 minutes.
    4. Add spices and seasonings (DP Garlic & Herb, GD Cajun Seasonings, Jacobsen Chili Salt) (See Note 2)
    5. Add chicken broth.
    6. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer. Let simmer until the broth is absorbed by the rice. (15ish minutes)
    7. Once the broth is absorbed, removed from heat and let cool.
    8. Once cool, add tuna, sun dried tomatoes, and eggs. Mix.
    9. Add romano and mozzarella cheese (Save some mozzarella for later). Mix.
    10. Add kale, oregano, and basil. Mix.
    11. Coat baking pan (spring form pan or pie shaped/sized pan) with non stick canola oil.
    12. Fill the baking pan with tuna/kale mixture. (See Note 3)
    13. Place thinly sliced mozzarella cheese over the tuna/kale mixture (on top).
    14. Bake on 350° F for 25 minutes.

    Note 1: Nonna found this recipe on Chew Town. She doubled the recipe to ensure plenty of leftovers! You can half Nonna’s ingredients list to make less. Cooking times will remain the same. Also, Nonna used some of her own favorite spices. She recommends you do the same. If there is a taste you love with fish, Nonna says use it!

    Note 2: Nonna loves Dan Pastorini’s and Gumbo Daddy’s seasonings. She uses the Jacobsen chili salt in combination with the 2 seasonings above to give the pie a little kick. However, you can use other spices. In this recipe simply using salt and pepper will suffice!

    Note 3: As Nonna doubled the recipe, she used 3 pie sized pans. If you cut the recipe in half, 1 – 20cm pie pan or spring loaded pan should work.

Stuffed Burgers

Ingredients

    • 2 Eggs
    • 1.5 pounds Ground Beef
    • 3ish cups Pork Rinds (crushed) OR 2.5ish cups Bread Crumps
    • Bull Shit Seasonings (www.SpecialShit.com)
    • Dan Pastorini’s Garlic and Herb Seasonings
    • Jacobsen Ghost Chili Salt
    • Gumbo Daddy’s Cajun Seasonings
    • 1 package Mushrooms
    • 1 medium chopped Onion
    • 1/4 cup minced Garlic
    • Olive Oil
    • Shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    • 4-6 Bacon Strips (optional)

Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 400°.
    2. Fry bacon and break into small bacon bits (optional). Nonna likes it crispy.
    3. In a frying pan, add a small amount of olive oil and over a high heat sautée onion, garlic, and mushrooms. See Note 1
    4. Remove the pan from heat when mushrooms are soft and onions are translucent and let cool.
    5. In a mixing bowl, put ground beef, 2 eggs and mix.
    6. Add to the beef crushed pork rinds OR bread crumps (not both) and mix See Note 2
    7. Roll the meat into 4 large meatballs. Then shape each ball into a bowl.
    8. Add sprinkling of mushrooms, bacon (optional), and shredded cheese to the center of the bowl and close the bowl over the top. (Makes a large thick hamburger patty).
    9. Either bake in the oven for 30ish minutes (or until it is done) OR place on a grill (do your best to prevent sticking). See Note 3

    Note 1: Nonna sautéed the mushrooms in the bacon grease rather than olive oil. This adds flavor, but is not heart healthy. Use the bacon grease or olive oil, your call!

    Note 2: Using pork rinds keeps the recipe low carb. However, breadcrumbs are perfectly good for the recipe. Again your call!

    Note 3: Nonna baked her stuffed burger in the oven at 400° for 30 mins. However, you can grill them. Just make sure the ground beef is cooked to your desires!

Ketolicious Frog Legs

We made a keto friendly version of fried frog legs. I did some in the air fryer and some deep fried. I’m sorry to say…… deep frying beats air frying on taste all day and how heart healthy are pork rind battered frog legs anyway so may as well deep fry.

Tuna Salad: Caught, Canned, and SERVED!

This tuna salad is DELICIOUS and goes well with everything! The recipe itself is keto, but can be served with bread. It would go well as stuffing for tomatoes or avocados. Or you can eat it with lettuce and tomatoes and other vegetables and fruits. It is, also, (and as is Nonna’s way) interchangeable! What I mean is, you can easily swap out the tuna for left over turkey, chicken, or ham!

Click here for the written recipe. The main ingredient in this recipe (canned tuna), can be swapped out with LEFTOVER Thanksgiving turkey, chicken or ham! Just chop it up and put in the mixing bowl!
