This low carb baked ricotta with bacon recipe also includes sun dried tomatoes for a flavorful experience!
I love all cheese, but ricotta can be tricky to work with. It is a great vehicle for other flavors, but on its own can be terrifyingly bland. I’ve been trying several baked ricotta recipes recently – some with egg that (almost) set the ricotta into slices. But my favorite way of baking it is to add bacon and sun dried tomatoes, and eating it as a dip. It is wonderful as an appetizer or as a dish at a party – although you may have to double the recipe if you have more than a few people coming!
This recipe is SO easy to prepare – last time I made it the guests had already arrived and were standing around the kitchen. Mix together ricotta, shredded Parmesan, chopped sun dried tomatoes and chopped cooked bacon. Add some black pepper.
Serve the baked ricotta hot with low carb dippy things (that’s a technical term) like slices of cucumber, celery, or Romaine lettuce leaves.
