Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time30 mins
For the Topping
- 1 cup Almond Flour
- 1 tablespoon Oat Fiber see notes
- 1 Egg beaten
- 1/2 cup Sour Cream
- 1/4 cup baby corn chopped (see notes)
- 1/4 cup Grass-Fed Butter melted
- 1/2 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 1 1/2 teaspoons swerve confectioners or powdered erythritol
- 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of Salt
For the Filling
Cut up the hot dogs into 1 inch pieces and sauté them in a large skillet with the 1 tablespoon of butter. Cook for just a few minutes until slightly browned. If you are pressed for time, you can skip this step, but I recommend it because it gives a grilled flavor to the hot dogs.
Alternatively, you can grill them whole, then cut into small pieces. Mix in the hot dogs with the chili the shredded cheddar cheese. Pour mixture into a greased 9" X 13" glass or ceramic baking dish.
To Make the Topping
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, add the eggs, sour cream, swerve and butter, then mix to combine. Add in the cheddar cheese and baby corn.Mix in the dry ingredients, just until combined.
Drop the batter by the spoonful over the top and bake for 20 minutes or until the top is slightly golden. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Store leftovers in the fridge for a few days or freeze.
If you’re not comfortable adding the baby corn despite it only containing 2 net carbs for the entire recipe, you can certainly omit it and just adjust the macros accordingly.
There is not a ton of cheese in the filling because there is cheese in the topping. If you want more cheese mixed into the chili and hot dog mixture, you can certainly add more and it won't change the cooking time. Just be sure to adjust the macros.
The Oat Fiber is important in this recipe, as it gives a great bread-like texture. I use Lifesource Foods Oat Fiber 500, because it’s ground to a fine powder and has a very mild flavor.
Oat Fiber is not the same as Oat Flour, which is made from grinding oats. Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outer husks of oats and is pure insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and is not broken down in the digestive tract, so it’s Low Carb and Keto friendly.
