Well believe it or not it is that time of the year again and we are working on our keto Christmas menu for our family lunch celebration. This year we are hosting, which is a first! We are excited to be able to serve a keto-friendly and delicious celebration meal to our family and I hope they enjoy it as much as we will.
Grazing platter & Devilled Eggs
A grazing platter is always a great option when you have a family gathering or celebration and can easily be made keto-friendly. Some of our favourite inclusions for our keto Christmas menu are;
- Ranch Dip
- Pesto Dip
- Pimento Cheese
- Romesco Dip
- Salami Crackers
- Everything But The Bagel Cheese Crackers
- Pork Rinds
- Cold Meats
We don’t have a devilled egg recipe, but I like to add some mustard, mayonnaise & sour cream with plenty of salt and pepper to the egg yolk filling. Last year these were the first things to disappear from the table.
We are going to serve ham, turkey and pork on our keto Christmas table this year and we will be very happy if there are lots of leftovers. We can eat the leftover meat over the days following Christmas and pop any excess into the freezer.
We will be making our keto maple-glazed ham, roasting a fresh turkey buffet (breast on the bone) we have ordered from the butcher and also cooking a small porchetta that is already seasoned that we found at Coles.
Normally my family would have a potato bake on the table at celebrations, but not on my watch! We will be making our cauliflower bake which is cheesy and delicious! It is so rich and decadent and flavoured with leek and bacon so I am hoping no one will miss the potatoes.
We will also have a few salads. My Mum will make a garden salad chock full of veggies, avocado and seeds which is always delicious and I will make a caesar salad. I might substitute these Always Fresh cheese crisps for the croutons so we still have some crunch.
Also I will make the Diet Doctor bread rolls which are very easy to make and use up the left over egg whites from my custard so a win win! We have served these to our non-keto friends before and they said if we hadn’t of told them they were keto they wouldn’t have guessed.

We ordered a keto friendly Christmas pudding from Low Carb Emporium this year that is made with hemp flour and sweetened with xylitol. We are very excited to share the pudding with our family and friends and of course will serve it with our famous keto vanilla custard.
We will also be serving a blueberry and custard tart (recipe coming soon!) for the kids or people who aren’t a fan of Christmas pudding. We won’t be making a trifle this year but in case you are interested we do have three delicious keto friendly trifle recipes to choose from; Black Forest, Raspberry & Cream and Tropical.
Last, but by no means least, we will also be serving some rum balls! These are delicious little bites that will be perfect with a tea or coffee right before our obligatory afternoon nap.
So this is what will be on our table this Christmas! I hope it helps you work out your own Christmas menu with some easy and delicious keto friendly options. Let us know in the comments your favourite keto-friendly Christmas dish.
Merry Christmas and looking forward to a great 2019 with you!
