Labor Day Keto Party

Labor Day is around the corner! That means you’ll be invited to a barbecue or two to celebrate the unofficial end of summer.

If you’re on the keto diet or watching your carbs, you’re good to go with chicken, sausage, shish kebabs or hotdogs on the grill. But what about the wide array of sweet and savory side dishes spread out on the table to go with them? Just because you’re doing it keto doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy a delicious cheese to go with your main dish!

Let’s balance things out with some sweet and savory, delicious, keto-friendly recipes. You can make these yourself and take them to your next summer meeting.

Serves: 20
