The thing I love about KETO is that I never feel restricted or denied foods that I enjoy. People are so creative in how they can maintain their health, reverse diabetes and insulin resistance without ever feeling deprived. The noodles are made of eggs! The ground beef filling, the variety of cheeses and spices can be adjusted to your preference, so this is a conglomeration of what has been tested by my taste buds and approved! This recipe will make 4 people satisfied, keto enthusiasts or not! I am using a basic ECKO 9 X 13 inch baking pan. Spray with PAM or heavily use olive oil before inserting ingredients for lasagne dish.
MAKING the CHEESY EGG NOODLES can be done the night before and just leave in the fridge overnight. Line a 9 x 13 baking dish with parchment paper. Preheat over to 375 F or 190 C – Bake on middle rack for 20-25 minutes, cool in fridge then cut into thirds. This makes three perfectly sized noodle layers for same 9 x 13 baking dish.
INGREDIENTS FOR EGG NOODLES = 2 large eggs + 4 oz of soft cream cheese + 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese + 1.4 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese + 1/4 tsp Montreal Steak Seasoning + 1/4 tsp garlic powder + 1/4 tsp onion powder
Use a hand mixer. Large bowl mix 4 oz cream cheese with 2 eggs. Add 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese + Seasoning, garlic, and onion powder. Mix well then fold in mozzarella cheese. Spread mixture across the lined baking dish, use spatula to make even layer. Bake at 375F or 190 C for 20-25 minutes. Remove and cool, then slice into three wide of long strip, store in fridge.
