Keto Mother's Day Brunch Recipe

Low-Carb, Keto Friendly Mother's Day Brunch Recipes | #mom #breakfast #TMMW

Mother's Day. The day that we all dote on our mother for raising us and putting up with our shenanigans. Handmade cards and breakfast in bed. What could be a sweeter way to celebrate mom. (Besides, if your making her breakfast in bed, that means she gets to sleep in. Woot!)

The way to this mother's heart is through her stomach. It's true. I said it. I like good food, so the Littles and I put together a low-carb, Keto Mother's Day brunch to share with all of you. I couldn't decide between sweet and savory, so we made both.

Keto Friendly Sweet Cheese Danish

We started by making a cheese danish. I love pastries. I have fond memories of those prepackaged cheese danishes you can get at the convenience store. Yeah, not so healthy, but I like them. Making a low-carb version that is comparable is no easy feat.

We started by making the dough. For our dough we used a basic fathead dough and added a little butter and stevia because butter is delicious. The dough is made up mostly of melted cheese. This gives it the ability to hold shape when rolled out and cooked.

The filling is made from cream cheese, egg yolks, and stevia. For a little twist, I threw in some cinnamon. Maverick isn't a big fan of cream cheese so the cinnamon helps to mask that flavor. 😉

We gently rolled it up and transferred it to our baking sheet. Having a silicone rolling mat AND a silicone baking mat was very helpful. I was able to make the transfer without breaking the danish in half. The dough holds its shape well, but isn't strong enough to pick up when folded into a large danish like we did. 

The Recipe:

Keto Cheese Danish

Fathead dough is super easy to work with. It makes a great base for this yummy cheese danish.
Keto friendly sweet cheese danish recipe # TMMW

Cook time:

  • 4 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 4 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 1 cup Coconut Flour
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp. Stevia drops
  • 12 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2 tsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp. Stevia drops
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 1 Tbs. Cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375 F.

To make the dough:

  1. Combine the mozzarella and cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl. 
  2. Warm mixture in the microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds or until melted enough to stir.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the coconut flour, eggs, vanilla extract, and stevia.
  4. Add the cheese mix to the bowl and mix until well combined.
  5. Roll out your dough till it is about 1/4 inch thick.
  6. Make diagonal slices around the outside to "braid" the top.
The filling:

  1. Place your softened cream cheese in your bowl along with the lemon juice, vanilla extract, stevia, egg yolks, and cinnamon. Stir until well combined.
  2. Spread your filling into the middle of your dough.
Finishing touches:

  1. Gently fold the dough flaps up over the filling to make a nice braided look.
  2. Transfer to a lined cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes.

  1. When rolling, it helps to have a second silicone mat or wax paper on top of the dough to prevent it from sticking to your rolling pin.
  2. The stevia can be replaced with 1/2 cup of sugar equivalent.

Low- Carb Hash Browns

Once the danish was out of the oven, it was time to focus on the next dish- radish hash browns. Radishes get a bad rap sometimes. When they aren't picked at just the right time, they get quite a bite. Growing up my dad had a HUGE, lushes garden. We tried growing radishes in it one year, but didn't pick them soon enough. The results were quite spicy. This year we are going to try and grow some radishes in our own garden. The Littles love crunching on sliced radishes with humus.

I'm getting side tracked. Let's get back to the hash browns. Generally, potatoes are a big no no in a low carb lifestyle. Just one russet potato contains 37 carbs, and when your daily allowance of carbs is 25-30 carbs in a DAY. That's a problem.

Thankfully, radishes make a valiant substitute. When cooked, they lose quite a bit of their raw bite and mellow out. Do they taste exactly like potatoes? No. Are they delicious with some keto ketchup or salsa? Yes!

We started with 2 pounds of radishes. (That seems like a lot, but having extra makes tomorrow's breakfast easier.) Using our Ninja blender to chop up the radishes was a big time saver. Don't get me wrong, I love my box grater, but this is a Mother's Day brunch. And I did it the easy way.

If you have time, it's best to mix the radishes with the salt and let it sit for a few minutes and drain the excess liquid before adding everything else in. It makes cooking so much easier.

I love our cast iron griddle. It's so easy to clean and cook with. We threw on some hash brown patties and eggs. There was plenty of room on the griddle.

Low-Carb Radish Hash Browns

Crispy, golden hash browns are no longer out of reach for low-carbers. Top with your favorite keto gravy or sauce and bam! Deliciousness!

Total time:

  • 2 lbs. Radishes
  • 4 Large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Cumin

  2. In a bowl, mix the grated radishes with salt and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.

  1. Draining the hash helps keep them together when cooking so you don't end up with a mushy mess.

We fried a few eggs, and we were ready to eat. Yum! Everything turned out really well. The Littles enjoyed their hash browns with ketchup and scrambled eggs, while Maverick and I feasted on our with fried eggs and runny yolks. Even the danish got the seal of approval from Maverick.
