Rutabaga fries

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

Cheese bread

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Beat eggs fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  3. Mix dry ingredients, and then blend the grated cheese with dry ingredients and the beaten eggs.
  4. Let swell for about 10 minutes.
  5. Put 8 piles of batter on a baking sheet and bake in the middle of the oven for 10–15 minutes until they turn nicely golden. Let cool a little before serving.

Rutabaga

  1. Increase oven temperature to 450° (225°C).
  2. Peel and cut the rutabaga into strips.
  3. Boil for a couple of minutes in salted water. Let drain in a strainer.
  4. Melt coconut oil and mix with the rutabaga in a bowl so that all strips are covered. Sprinkle salt on the rutabaga strips.
  5. Place the strips on a rack on a baking sheet. Bake in oven until golden brown on the outside and soft inside, turn once while baking. You can use a deep fryer if you have one. Rutabaga fries won’t be as crispy as the potato fries as they don’t contain as much starch but they taste great anyway.

Burger

  1. Mix sour cream, mayonnaise and ajvar relish to make up the dressing. Let cool in refrigerator.
  2. Rinse the lettuce and slice tomato and avocado.
  3. Fry the halloumi cheese in butter or coconut oil until it turns a nice color and is soft.
  4. Build the burger and serve.

Tip!

Bake the cheese breads or use these easy-to-make Oopsie breads! Either will be amazing with the burgers.

    This sounds great but I think you need to rework the instructions for the cheese bread. They are not at all clear. What does 'whisk down' mean, for example? What do you do with the cream cheese? And when do you combine it with the eggs and dry ingredients?

    Rutabaga...Swede or turnip is mostly used.

    Brilliant, Inger, thank you!

    So the cheese in the bread is cream cheese? It is only listed as "cheese".
  7. Emma
    Also confused about the cheese in the bread, is it grated or cream cheese?
  8. Judi
    The cheese bread is SO delicious! Would I be fine to eat it every morning with an egg or would it stall my weightloss? Thank you for your wonderful recipes!

    Can't find the updated recipe that clears up the issue with cream cheese vs. grated. How do I get it. Also, what is halloumi cheese?

    The bread recipe still isn't clear. Please clarify as I would like to make this recipe in a few days for guests. There is no cream cheese listed in the ingredients but it is called for in the instructions. There is grated cheese listed in the ingredients but not called for in the instructions.

    These recipes are great, but it would be nice to have the nutrition information available as I am documenting on the Fitbit weight program. Monitoring carbs and protein. Thanks.

    Hi Diane!

    If you hover your mouse over the symbol for "Moderate Low Carb" on the picture then you get some basic info.

    These recipes are great, but it would be nice to have the nutrition information available as I am documenting on the Fitbit weight program. Monitoring carbs and protein. Thanks.

    I've just noticed that you can click on each numbered instruction and it ticks it off as you go along. Very handy. I'm easily pleased as you can see!

    Can you list the carbs in each separate part of the recipe as I just made the cheese bread to eat warm with a bit of butter
