The “ketoest” pie
Whether you believe in egg fasting or not, the truth is that eggs are simply awesome and there’s just so much you can make with them! Namely, you can prepare desserts like Egg Fast Pie, which consists almost solely of eggs, cream cheese, and butter. Admittedly, I love eggs so much, an egg fast day happens to me spontaneously from time to time. This pie has a perfect macronutrient ratio for the keto diet. That is if you ignore the few carbs from cream cheese and fiber from a bit of psyllium.
Since the posts about my egg fasting experiment have been so popular lately, I’ve decided to come up with more egg fasting recipes for those of you (us) with unmerciful sweet teeth. Such recipes are usually simple because of the low ingredient count, but they do take a bit longer than just making scrambled eggs. Well, the extra few minutes are worth it with this one. Serve a slice to a non-keto, non-egg fasting buddy, and they will compliment on it. Unless they hate eggs.
Besides the three basic ingredients, I used a tablespoon of psyllium husks powder for the crust and decoration strips. I think the amount is allowed on the egg fast even if you are being strict about it. On the other hand, you can avoid the psyllium, but it does help make the crust somewhat firmer.
Egg fasters: You will notice that the amount of fat is lower than the egg count. Solve this “problem” by pouring a tablespoon or two of melted organic coconut oil over a slice before serving it. The pie soaks so nicely in it!
You can even simplify the pie by not decorating it with the strips. Bake only the crust if you wish. Moreover, before I let you go, here’s another suggestion for a shortcut you can take when applying the topping: You can microwave the topping for a few seconds, so it gets runnier. That way you can simply pour it over the top of the pie. That is what I will do the next time.
Enjoy, and please, do let me know how your egg fasting days are going for you.
