KETO GOURMET CONEY DOG CASSEROLE
I've been craving these flavors with the warm weather. Here's my recipe for Gourmet Coney Dog Casserole.
Gourmet Coney Dog Casserole
Spring! About this time of year, the local A&W root beer stand would open when I was growing up. I loved ordering Coney dogs that the carhops would deliver. Eating from a tray attached to a car window was a simple pleasure that many of us in my small town enjoyed. When Becker’s closed a couple of years ago, everyone in Columbus, Indiana was sad. That’s probably why my brother in law Bruce brought Coney dog sauce to my rehearsal dinner. He also missed eating Coney dogs outside. He often dined at the picnic table adjacent to the park and eat area.
Now that the weather is turning warmer, Sam and I have begun eating outside on a regular basis. We will do this as long as the weather permits (and much longer than we should). This week, we’ve been utilizing the deck at the hotel in Kill Devil Hills, NC. Overlooking the ocean makes food taste especially delicious. This has stirred a craving resulting in my Gourmet Coney Dog Casserole. While this isn’t a dish I made before eating keto, I think it will become a staple for outdoor dining.
Chef Alexa shreds her own cheddar because it provides a more intense flavor without extra starches often found on pre-shredded cheese.
This quick, easy recipe is perfect for meal prep. Especially if you like to have variety during the week, freezing components like the Chorizo Coney Dog Sauce and using what you need for one meal is the best way to save time while making meals. Then, assemble the ingredients for a hot meal with minimal fuss. Add a garden salad and some Toasted Mug Bread to make it a meal. Eating gourmet keto food? That’s KetoLuxe.
