Sausage Balls ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Sausage Balls

An easy appetizer with a few simple ingredients. It’s gluten-free and keto.


I remember having sausage balls at parties. I only made them once or twice quite a few years ago and that was with Bisquick.  I recently came across this recipe over on KetoSizeMe for sausage balls that are gluten-free and legal for keto and I realized what a perfect snack these are.

You simply combine all the ingredients and drop on a cookie sheet and bake at 350º for 16-20 minutes.

Put them in the oven on 350º for 16-20 minutes.

Pizza Topping Casserole ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Pizza Topping Casserole

Craving the taste of pizza but shouldn’t have all that bread? Then this is your answer

Pizza Topping Casserole ~ Lifeofjoy.meYears ago I did the HcG diet and the Atkins diet. Both are low carb diets; well, the HcG diet is low carb on one of its phases. Anyway, I found this wonderful recipe back then. On low carb, you cannot have bread and that leaves pizza out of my diet, which just does not work for me long term. I love pizza! So this helps fill that void.

The original recipe calls for one pound of bulk Italian sausage. Well, today I didn’t have that but I had some Italian link sausages filled with peppers and mozzarella cheese. So, that is what I used.

I like my veggies well done. Consequently I start by dicing and sauteing those first. Then I add the meat, to brown. Sometimes I have to add a bit of coconut oil to keep it from sticking to my pan (since my cast iron skillets are a bit abused ;) )
