Lasagne would have to be one of my top five comfort foods. Top three, maybe.

I make a delicious variation of this dish, using grilled eggplant, but it’s quite lengthy by the time I salt and drain the eggplant, pat it all dry and grill it in batches. It becomes a special occasion dish. Well, I don’t want my lasagne to be a special occasion dish. I want to eat it on the regular. That’s where these amazing keto crepes come in to the picture.

I like to make a couple of batches and have them stored in the freezer, ready to be whipped out and turned into lasagne at a moments notice. Or served with ricotta and berries.

The cheese and basil sauce is hands down my favourite part of this recipe, the sweetness of the basil cuts through the heavy cheesiness of the sauce, which in turn complements the rich, beefy filling.

Try it. These low-carb crepes are so similar to pasta sheets that you’ll barely notice the difference. Enjoy!

Well - this was amazing!  When we finished, we didn't have that heavy full feeling.  I had to modify with what I had or could eat:  2 lbs instead of 1.5 lbs beef, I didnt use the crepes though because Costco  had these refrigerated Crepinis (pkg. egg wraps that look and taste like crepes).  We used two deep dish glass plates and made 2 with 2 layers in each (4 layers would not have fit in one plate).  They cut and served nicely. Because we are not having night shades, the tomatoes were an issue but you can have Pomi brand of Strained tomatoes (Amazon) - subbed the sauce and tomato paste for 2 500 gm tetra packs (they have no skins or seeds). It was strange serving lasagne in a round pan but it looked pretty. Tasted exactly like lasagne. Sorry - I made a few more changes - 1/2 the amount of cream cheese (husband doesn't like it) and added some grated parmesan to moz.  This took hardly any time to make.  Cooked so fast with the crepes.

Thanks for all the tips! I'd love to try those crepes, I wish we have these in the UK. Glad you enjoyed!

What is the baking temperature? I’m sure I just missed it somewhere. Also, The recipe says almond milk or heavy cream In ingredient s and in the body of the recipe it says coconut milk?
Can’t wait to try this when it gets out of the oven, It looks delicious.

Thank you Kathy, fixed! Coconut milk can be used instead of HWC but I forgot to mention that so it was a bit confusing in the crepes.

Hello Naomi,
As an avid Keto guru myself I went on to try your lasagne recipe and my god is it delicious!
I always loved lasagne (also before being on Keto) but now I can still enjoy it the Keto way.
This proves that food on Keto does not have to be boring at all, it can be so versatile.
Many popular well known dishes can even be adjusted to be Keto compatible so you can keep enjoying them like your recipe has just proven.
There is so much creativity when it comes to Keto and food, many people think Keto still greatly limits what you can eat but recipes like this show how much is still possible on Keto and how much more creative food becomes without the carbs!
Thank you for sharing, I really enjoyed it.
Cheers!
Bryan
