1 pound fresh green beans* trimmed and cooked to your liking
1/3 pound bacon cooked and chopped
Supreme or Creamy Cheese Sauce
3 ounces onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
4 tablespoons dry white wine (or dry vermouth)
1 tablespoon minced parsley
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 tablespoons bacon drippings or fat of choice
6 ounces softened cream cheese,
3 ounces grated cheddar cheese,
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
3/4 cup unsalted chicken stock/broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


1/3 cup crushed pork rinds (or low carb bread crumbs)
1/8 teaspoon granulated garlic
1/8 teaspoon salt
1-2 teaspoons olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 and position the rack in the middle of the oven. Butter an 8×8 oven proof casserole dish.
Cook green beans to your liking. (I like to put them in a microwaveable bowl with 2 tablespoons of water, cover them, and steam them on high power for 4-5 minutes depending on microwave strength. Then I test for done-ness, uncover and drain.) Place the green beans into a large bowl with the chopped bacon and mix.
Mince the onion, garlic, and parsley, keeping them separate and zest the lemon.
Creamy Cheese Sauce
Heat a large skillet (I use a non-stick) over medium high heat and add the bacon drippings when the pan is hot. Add the minced onion and saute until translucent – about 2-3 minutes. Then add the garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes until soft. Turn the heat down to medium and add the parsley, lemon zest and wine. Saute for about a minute or until the smell of the alcohol has burned off. Add the softened cream cheese and break it up in the pan so that it melts more easily. Add the chicken broth little by little and whisk to combine until the cream cheese has melted. Turn the heat to medium-low and let the sauce bubble a little to combine flavors and thicken slightly. Add the cheddar cheese, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper. Whisk and taste to adjust seasoning.
Pour the sauce into the bowl with the green beans and bacon and stir together. Pour the green bean mixture into the buttered baking dish.
Crush 1/2 ounce of pork rinds by putting them in a plastic zip-loc bag and hitting them with the flat end of a meat mallet or rolling pin. Pour the crumbs into a small bowl and add 1/8 teaspoon granulated garlic and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Then, add 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil and mix together with your fingers. Sprinkle over the casserole.
Put the supreme green bean casserole in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly around the sides.
Serves 8 at 4 net carbs each.
Note: make sure the beans are cooked to your liking before adding them to the cheese sauce – OR – you could let the casserole cook longer in the oven.

If the sauce is too thick for you, add 1/4 cup more chicken broth next time. It will be solid when refrigerated. Reheating will make it loose again.

Gingerbread French Toast
  • 1 lb day-old crusty white bread (I used Italian bread)
  • 12 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • cup milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup molasses
  • 6 Tbsp melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • tsp powdered ginger
  • tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • powdered sugar for dusting
Cinnamon Honey Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ cup Butter
  • cup Honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Lemon Juice
  • cup heavy cream


  • Preheat oven to 350º. Generously butter a 9"x13" baking dish.
  • Break the bread into pieces (or cut into slices) directly into the buttered baking dish.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the brown sugar, ginger, cinnamon, molasses and cloves with the melted butter until mixed, then add the remaining ingredients, mixing well until completely combined.
  • Pour the mixture evenly over bread, gently toss to coat. Let sit for at least five minutes. If you'd like, at this point you can wrap the dish with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge overnight.
  • Bake at 350º F for 45 minutes to one hour, until the eggs are set.

Warm Cinnamon Honey Glaze Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, over medium heat combine Honey, butter, cinnamon and lemon juice.
  • Stir continually until butter the ingredients are fully combined.
  • Using a whisk, slowly add the heavy cream to the honey mixture, stirring constantly.
  • Bring the mixture to a gently boil for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and continue to whisk for one minute.


If you prefer, you can pan-fry the gingerbread french toast on a hot griddle or frying pan. Dip the slices in the egg mixture and fry until golden brown on each side.
