Four Low-carb Cheesy Recipes to Enjoy

As a country, we love cheese. In fact, in 2022, the average American ate 40.14 pounds. That number has increased dramatically since 1982, when we ate 19.9 pounds each. The amount of milk we drink has gone down. In 1975, we drank 247 pounds of milk each. In 2022, we drank 130 pounds per person. However, our total dairy consumption, including yogurt, has increased a lot.

Now that we are a country that eats our dairy rather than drinks it, we think it’s important to focus on healthier, low-carb cheesy recipes. So many low-carb cheese recipes are things like low-carb mozzarella sticks. We want to offer you some dishes that won’t throw your diet off but will let you enjoy delicious cheese!

Crispy Cheese Low Carb Keto Tacos


Using cheese to make taco shells is a great way to cut cards out of your taco night! You can cut out the fat often associated with tacos by using lean ground beef or turkey. This recipe also uses a sour cream drizzle that cuts sour cream with almond milk, removing some fat and giving it a dressing consistency. A serving has 191 calories, 2.8 grams of carbs, 0.7 grams of fiber and 8.5 grams of fat. Get the recipe.  

Keto Chicken Parmesan


We love chicken parm! It’s one of our favorite Italian dishes. This low-carb version of the dish is just as good as the traditional breaded kind! You cut out the traditional flour and breadcrumbs but keep all the big flavors. You’ll be thrilled you made it! Serve it alongside low-carb pasta or some zoodles for a full meal. Or try it with mashed cauliflower. A serving has 349 calories, four grams of carbs, two grams of fiber and 12 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Parmesan-crusted Cabbage Steaks


These cabbage steaks are the perfect hearty side or a light main dish. They are brushed with balsamic vinegar and oil to caramelize them and add sweetness as they cook. Then, they’re topped with parmesan and spices to add a delicious crust. They’re perfect for spring! A serving has 133 calories, six grams of carbs, one gram of fiber and 10 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Italian Sausage-Stuffed Zucchini


We love any dish that helps us trick ourselves into eating more vegetables. This recipe puts all the flavors of sausage pizza into a zucchini. If you want to make it pepperoni, you can, but that will increase the fat. This recipe isn’t written to be low-carb; it’s just a happy coincidence that it is. You can cut out more carbs by using almond flour instead of panko if you have it. But it’s already pretty great as it is! A serving has 206 calories, 16 grams of carbs, three grams of fiber and nine grams of fat. Get the recipe.  

We don’t want to sound cheesy, but we love these recipes. And we think you will, too!
