low carb potato pie – the details

To make the Cheesy Potato Pie is so easy that even a novice cook can master! First, you cook the potatoes in salted water. Once the potatoes are tender, add them to a food processor with all the ingredients, reserving some cheese for the topping.

The pie is slowly baked, then topped with remaining cheese and baked until the cheesy topping is bubbling. If you don’t have a food processor, no worries, you can use a mixer.

Potatoes are considered comfort food, but potatoes are usually off limits when following a low carb diet. Starchy vegetables such as potatoes offer ample nutrition and should be included in a well-balanced diet.

Enjoying potatoes without worrying about the extra carbs is always a treat.
