These Mad Creations Ketogenic Diet Cheese & Bacon Aussie Beef Pies……all I can say is WOW!

These pies, are what I would call in car terms a total sleeper.  They look wholesome, and boring on the outside, but holy shizzle, the crust is made cheese and bacon, what’s not to like…seriously!

In this recipe I did use lupin flakes, but just substitute with almond meal if you have a peanut allergy, or following Banting and dont want to stray from the green list, it won’t matter, it’s just a bit of glue to help hold the crust together.  I choose lupin as it is low carb, high fibre and doesn’t raise insluin.

The fibre content has been amped up with the psyllium, and you can top these with a good cauliflower mash if you want, and surround with a buttery jus.  Now what a “floater” that would be!

No more Aussie than a pie, but to make it a gluten free and grain free, and more tasty than any pie I have ever made that is a big call.

I hope you enjoy

  1. Delicious pies made with a cheese and bacon pastry! Can you get more Aussie than that?

  2. These pies are to die for. I used almond meal instead of lupin and they turned out perfect. The dough was easy to work with (I used wet hands) and they are soooo delicious, be a regular on my menu now.

    1. I am so glad you enjoyed them Lisa
