Keto Bacon-Wrapped Pumpkin Slices


It’s pumpkin season, and also you shouldn’t want an excuse to take pleasure in this festive and candy however lowish-carb ingredient. But simply in case you want just a little enticement, we wrapped this pumpkin in bacon. Slow-roasting accentuates the pure brown-sugar sweetness of the pumpkin, and crispy bacon makes every thing higher. Enjoy these as a snack, an appetizer, or a form of thick-cut keto French fry. We counsel a bitter cream dipping sauce with smoked paprika, which presents cool richness, an echo of the bacon’s smokiness, and a refreshing tanginess.
