Product Of The Month
Our product review team features two (2) "Products Of The Month" one in each issue of
our magazine. These products will be the group consensus of those we find to be the
most innovative, healthy, tasty, and/or helpful to the low-carber's daily dietary regime.

Keto Ketato Varieties

Keto Ketato Varieties
We first reviewed Keto Ketatoes back in November of 1999. (Seems like a long time ago, doesn't it?) And we've been creatively using them ever since... as time's gone by, they've changed the label (a few times) and changed the formula. They just keep improving. And in September of 2000, they introduced the first new flavor variety of Ketatoes — Bacon and Chive.

Now, they've improved them once again and added three new flavors! Keto now brings us potato mixes in
Sour Cream and Cheddar, Garlic Parmesan, and Sweet Ketato. The label instructions now offer water and butter mixing instructions, but include a way to make them even creamier.

They make very nice side dishes on their own, but when you get a little creative, they really shine. First off, we still like the idea of mixing the Garlic Parmesan variety with well-whipped cooked cauliflower. Then add additional parmesan or even a little shredded Swiss cheese to melt down through.

For the Sour Cream and Cheddar, don't be afraid to add extra cheese... and it doesn't have to be cheddar. Adding Monterey Jack and some diced scallions made these a real winner. And make them with 4 Tablespoons of cream cheese per each 2-serving batch. They'll be super creamy and scrumptious.

Keto Ketatoes But the real shining star here is the Sweet Ketato flavor. They are very close to real whipped sweet potatoes (not yams) and will benefit from a spritz of extra sweetener and perhaps a little ginger or nutmeg. Melt plenty of extra butter on these as well. You can also mix prepared Sweet Ketatoes 1-to-1 with pureed pumpkin for a Pumpkin/Sweet Potato Pie that's terrific. Add lots of pumpkin pie spice, plenty of rich cream, a beaten egg, and enough sweetener (some can be sugar free maple syrup!) to taste. It's a great Autumn dessert to serve before and during Thanksgiving!

And don't forget the original flavors — Plain and Bacon & Chive. If you haven't tried Ketatoes lately, you haven't tried Ketatoes!  They're available from The Low Carb Connoisseur.
