Savory Keto Cheesecake with Spinach, Bacon and Caramelized Onion


Step 1Preheat the oven to 190 °C/ 375 °F (fan assisted), or 210 °C/ 410 °F (conventional). Place ricotta cheese in a large bowl. Add 5 of the eggs. Crumble in the feta cheese. Add 1/2 tsp salt.

Step 2Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.

Step 3In a large skillet, fry the bacon until brown and crispy. Remove bacon to paper towel.

Step 4Place onion in a skillet with fat from the bacon. Cook until lightly brown completely soft. Cut the bacon into small pieces and add to cooked onion.

Step 5Squeeze as much moisture out of the spinach as possible and add to the bacon.

Step 6Add the and onion.

Step 7Add the remaining raw egg and 6 tbsp of the ricotta-feta mixture. Mix ingredients until well combined.

Step 8Line the bottom and sides of an 8-inch springform pan with parchment paper or wax paper. Pour half of the ricotta-feta mixture into the springform pan. Gently spoon the spinach-bacon mixture over the ricotta-feta mixture. (Note: I used a silicon baking pan instead. It helps to prevent sticking but I would still recommend using a parchment paper or a wax paper. It will be easier when you need to remove the cheesecake from the pan.)

Step 9Pour the remaining ricotta-feta mixture into the pan.

Step 10Bake for bout one hour, until golden brown but centre still jiggles. Let cool for at least 1 hour before serving or refrigerating. Can be served warm or cold. Optionally, add crisped up bacon slices and caramelised onion rings on top.
