FAT HEAD HAM, CREAM CHEESE & NUTS PULL-APART RING – Keto, Low Carb, Gluten Free
Yes! It’s another recipe using Fat Head Dough. It’s versatile and I just love it ❤ (See my other recipes using Fat Head Dough from HERE.)
At a first glance, can you believe it’s actually low carb? And it also tastes amazing! Yes, it does look like a crescent ring, but it’s much easier because you don’t have to cut the dough into triangles 🙂
My Amazon Picks
Fat Head Ham, Cream Cheese & Nuts Pull-Apart Ring / Keto / Low Carb / Gluten Free
- 1 1/2 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (160 g)
- 2 oz Cream Cheese (56 g)
- 1 Egg
- 3/4 cup Almond Flour (85 g) (or 3.5 - 4 tbsp (30 g) Coconut Flour)
- 1/2 tsp Aluminum-Free Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Xanthan Gum (Optional but helps the texture)
- 4 slices Ham
- 4 oz Cream Cheese (115 g)
- 1 oz Chopped Nuts (30 g) (I used walnuts)
- 1/4 tsp or more Black Pepper
To Sprinkle over Dough
- 1/4 tsp Sea Salt (Optional)
In a large saucepan, melt the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese over low heat until it can be stirred together and remove from the heat. (Or microwave 1 - 1.5 minutes.)
Stir until well combined.
Add an egg and stir.
Add the almond flour and baking powder (and xanthan gum) and mix well.
Wet your hand and knead the dough until uniform. *Reheat the dough if it gets crumbly. Add flour little by little (like 1/2 tsp at a time) if the dough is too sticky.
Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350 F.
Place the dough on a parchment paper.
Top the dough with another piece of parchment paper and roll it out into a 15 x 12 inch (40 x 30 cm) rectangle.
Place the ham on the dough.
Spread the cream cheese on the ham.
Sprinkle the chopped nuts and black pepper.
Roll up the dough.
Place the seam side down on the parchment paper and form a ring. Seal the ends together. (* Wetting your hands definitely helps!)
Sprinkle the sea salt over the dough if desired.
With kitchen scissors or a knife, cut from outside edge to two-thirds toward the center of the ring at about 2 inch (5 cm) intervals.
Place the parchment paper with the dough onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 22 - 25 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack for 10 - 15 minutes.
Reheat in the oven / toaster oven before serving for fluffy texture.
