Savory/Salty Snacks

I love savory foods, I can pass on sweets anyday. I am looking for some ideas of snacks that I can eat that are not sweet. Nuts are my favorite but I am going to try and do induction. Am I stuck with just pork rinds (which I love, but you can only eat so many)

There are a zillion options. One of my favorite are these Doritos made from cauliflower.

And mozzarella sticks

Hi scout…
If you are talking about induction, then even nuts are off-limits. I think my 'cut-up-a-low-carb-tortilla-&-fry-it would be too. But I bet you could have my fried cheese tortillas...

I fry shredded sharp cheddar in a small fry pan into 6-8'' tortillas and then put a tsp of salsa on them and smear it around and eat them...I also salt them.

Pepperoni right out of the package - I tried turning these into jerky in my dehydrator, but they were greasy and gross (concerntrated the salt and spices into a far too strong combo). I buy 5# bags and then break them into 5-6 ziplocks and freeze them.

Ham is good too...love it actually sliced, cubed, fried, baked, chopped into eggs etc.

I made some "cheesy bread". Only ingredients are pork rinds, parmesan cheese, egg, italian seasoning, and mozzerella.
Low Carbin' Made Simple: Pork Rind Pizza Crust-Best Yet!

I also like summer sausage. Cut it into thin slices and put cheese on top, nuke in the microwave and it get's crispy. It's sooooo good.

Take either ham or turkey (deli slices), spread cream cheese on them, roll a dill pickle spear in it. Yummy.

Cheese crackers (little piles of cheese and put in the oven for a few minutes until crispy) are good with any kind of dip.

Jerky, just check the carb and sugar content.

Here are some other savory/salty snack ideas from Linda Sue:
Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes
Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes
Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes (These are so much better if you fill with cream cheese and wrap in bacon and bake in the oven) Like this:

Or anything on LS site that has a "*" beside it is induction friendly.

Oooh I have another one that Chantyl told me about, but I can't remember the exact recipe. If I can track her down and make her come in here, I'll get her to spill it.

Basically it's fried cauliflower bites (she used broccoli though). It consisted of cauliflower, egg, cheese, i cant' remember what else. I fried them in the deep fryer and dipped in ketchup. Heavenly.

Per MsWoods Request

Parmesean broccoli balls

20 oz Frozen Chopped Broccoli
2 C. Ground Pork Rinds
1C. Shredded Parmesan Cheese
1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
3/4C. Butter, Softened
6 Eggs, Beaten
1/2 Tbsp Pepper
Dash of Salt
1/2C. Parmesan Cheese, for rolling in (green can)

Cook frozen broccoli according to package directions, drain well. Combine all ingredients, mixing well. Roll mixture into small balls and roll balls in Parmesan cheese. Freeze.

To serve: Put frozen broccoli balls in a preheated 350 oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown


MsWoods Tweaks:
Ok Chantyl, reporting back here. I had to tweak some things, it turns out, I did not have broccoli. I used cauliflower instead. And I used shredded mozzarella instead of shredded parm because that's what I had. I also added some bacon in it. Oh man, they are good.
With LC ketchup, they taste like, I dunno, some fried carby little snack. Keeper for sure!

My tweaks:
I skip the shredded parm and use sharp cheddar in my mix, but still roll in parm. use garlic powder instead of italian seasoning and use real bacon bits.

snack ... or big snack ...

Avocado Induction Wrap

1/4-1/2 ripe Haas avocado
slice onion
1/2 - 1 slice American cheese (full fat)
Large lettuce leaf

Melt the cheese onto the avocado on a plate in the micro (about 20 secs or so). Scoop it up, lay it onto a lettuce leaf, add a slice of onion and wrap it up ...

Half an avocado per day is allowed on induction --
so delicious! and full of good induction fats!

I have not personally tried these, however I have read about doing exactly what you do except using mayo instead of egg to help hold the crust on. I would also like to know how those particular ones were prepared.

I've found that you really have to press the rinds into the cheese to get them to stay, and they've been all right that way, but if you don't really PRESS the rinds into the cheese, they might fall out.

Hi Cleo…
Do you fry them at low temp then?

I fry at a medium temperature. I need to score another thermometer and I could tell you for sure. Usually I feel it's ready when I drop in a blop of pork rind and the oil gives it sweet, sweet love.

I have a "salt tooth" myself... olives and pickles are good to have around. I also have a few jars of more unusual picked vegetables, like pepperoccinis, pickled green beans, pickled asparagus, and pickled brussels sprouts!

My favorite is skillet pizza. It can be really salty though. I top it with pizza sauce after it's cooled a bit.
