4 eggs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
3-4 TBSP sun dried tomato pesto
1 cup shredded cheese, your preference

Taking the 4 ounces of cream cheese and four eggs blend until smooth. Mix in 1 TBSP Italian seasoning and 1 tsp of garlic powder)
Take a 13 x 9 pan and sprinkle Parmesan cheese on the bottom.
Pour the egg and cream cheese mixture on top. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes at 350°. Take it out of the oven and spread 3 to 4 tablespoons of pizza sauce or I used sun-dried tomato pesto.
Sprinkle on the meat mixture. I used a half a pound of ground beef, eight slices of Applewood smoked bacon chopped ,one green bell pepper ,three green onions and  sautéed. Once the meat is put on top of the pesto ,sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese and mozzarella or provolone or whatever you like. I used double cheddar because it's what I had. 
Bake at 3:50 for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is good and melted. Allow to rest for a few moments cut into eight slices serve eat enjoy!

Keto Bread (first attempt)

Well, I made my first loaf of keto bread today...8/12/17
It is short and dense, a little dry and gritty.
Other than that, it is delicious. The consistency is that of baked cornbread. Not light and fluffy but how can it be, it is almond and coconut flour. Still it is tasty enough for toasting, smearing with butter or cream cheese. Definitely not worthy of a sandwich but it is my first attempt. I might play around with the recipe or not. I really do not miss bread enough to go at this more than one or two tries to be honest.

1 stick of butter melted
3 TBSP of coconut oil, melted
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 coconut flour
2/3 almond flour
6 eggs
Mix all the ingredients together and spoon into a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Slide it out of the pan, allow to cool, slice and enjoy. It is really good toasted with cream cheese!
