Making low carb simple
- Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Use an electric mixer to beat the eggs until fluffy, about 5 minutes.
- Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the shredded cheese. Then add the mixture into the eggs, stirring well. Let sit to swell and rise for 10 minutes.
- On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spoon two equal mounds of batter per serving. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 10–15 minutes until golden.
- Keep the oven temperature to 400°F (200°C).
- In a medium-sized bowl, combine the melted coconut oil and rutabaga strips so that they are all coated with oil. Season with salt.
- Place the strips on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, or on a rack over a baking sheet. Bake in the oven until golden brown and soft inside (about 40 minutes), turning once while baking.
- Combine sour cream, mayonnaise, and ajvar relish to make up the dressing. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
- Fry the halloumi cheese in butter or coconut oil until golden and soft, about 10 minutes.
- Build the burger and serve.
If you hover your mouse over the symbol for "Moderate Low Carb" on the picture then you get some basic info.
But I'm wondering what is the carb count for just the burger (without the fries, as swedes are out of season here) and also just for the cheese bread only?
Unfortunately I don't have that information broken out by component. We use the USDA database to calculate our nutrition information.
I am sorry, unfortunately I do not have the carb count broken out by meal component. Here is another very popular bread recipe from our website that is 2g net carbs per bun.
Ajvar relish is made from roasted red peppers. You could try a sun dried tomato relish/bruschetta or even guacamole if you wanted to avoid the tomato or pepper families altogether.
