CHEESY KETO CRAB RANGOONS

These Delicious Cheesy Keto Crab Rangoons are so Creamy and Flavourful!  They’re made with Mozzarella Cheese Slices instead of a traditional Wonton Wrapper. The cheese works surprisingly well as a low carb substitute. It gets perfectly crispy and holds together well. They taste great hot or cold, which makes them the perfect low carb snack or appetizer. I make extra so we can grab them on the go.

To make these deliciously easy Cheesy Keto Crab Rangoons you start by Softening the cream cheese. Then in a large mixing bowl, mix it with the strained canned crab, the minced garlic, the shredded mozzarella cheese, the garlic and onion powder and the salt and pepper. Mix until combined. Preheat your oven to 325 F. Spread out the mozzarella slices onto 2 parchment paper (Not Wax Paper) lined baking sheets.

Bake the cheese slices, until fully melted, approx. 4-5 mins. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before adding a few spoonfuls (approx. 3 Tbsp) of the cream cheese and crab mixture to one side of each of the cheese shells. Then fold the squares in half, making rectangle shapes. Firmly press the sides closed.

Return to the oven for another 5 – 10 minutes. Remove from the oven once the cheese is melted but not crispy. Use a spoon to press the edges into a smaller circular shape. Turn your oven to broil. Then return the rangoons to the oven to brown for 2-4 minutes until the top and edges are golden brown.

WHAT IS THE KETOGENIC DIET?

If you haven’t heard of The ketogenic diet (often called keto), it’s a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares similarities to paleo, Whole30, and Atkins. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. When your body switches to burning fat for its primary fuel source, that’s when you hit ketosis.

While on the Keto diet you’re supposed to get at least 70 percent of your calories from fat, 15 to 25 percent from protein, and 10 percent from carbohydrates. You’re supposed to avoid all grains, legumes, root vegetables, fruit, (except berries) and sugar.
