One of my go-to recipes for keto eggplant bites is simply divine! What I love about this recipe is how versatile it is; you can customize the toppings to suit your taste buds. I usually opt for cooked chicken, beef, cheese, mushrooms, and olives, but the possibilities are endless!
For my latest creation, I added some cooked hunter beef on top, which added a delightful savory flavor. As for the base, you can use any sauce you have on hand. I had run out of pizza sauce, so I used a dollop of cream cheese instead. It turned out to be a delicious alternative that perfectly complemented the eggplant bites.
