Sundried Tomato Keto Buns is a recipe I created around two years ago, and it turned out fantastic.
I remember making a crockpot of stew and wanting a bun slathered in butter, but we didn’t have any.
The British love bread and butter with their meals, and I can remember my mum making a batch twice a week.
Last week when I made a pot of tomato soup to last me a few days for lunch again, I wanted a bun.
We skip the bread section at the grocery store unless we buy bread to make our son’s favourite grilled cheese.
With many truckers stuck or slowed down across Canada, many products are missing from the grocery shelves.
While grocery shopping, I was shocked to see how lean the store was operating. I could not buy milk or cream because they had no stock.
That got me thinking about what I could make at home if certain grocery items were not in stock.
Of course, I went straight for the sundried tomato buns or my plain keto bun recipe, which are both delicious.
If you’re like me and enjoy fresh cold cuts and cheese on a bun without extra carbs, try my sundried tomato buns.
Any bread we buy goes straight into the freezer; however, you won’t need to do this unless you batch to bake.
These sundried tomato keto buns is a recipe for six, so it’s not in excess and easy to eat for the week.
If you must freeze the buns put them in a freezer bag and take one out to defrost each time you want one.
Let’s make some Sundried Tomato Keto Buns.
Sundried Tomatoes And Where To Find Them
Almost every grocery store will carry a jar of sundried tomatoes in oil or a bag of sundried tomatoes without oil. I find them inexpensive to buy, and they pack a punch when you use them in a recipe.
You can expect to pay around $3-5 a jar or bag, but they will last you a while in the refrigerator. For this recipe, I used the jar of sundried tomatoes in extra virgin olive oil.
A friend of ours who is Italian makes sundried tomatoes every summer. Although I haven’t had the chance to watch him, he posts photos on Facebook for everyone to see.
He keeps the tomatoes on a covered picnic table until they are dehydrated from the sun.
A blog titled The Daring Gourmet has a fantastic detailed step-by-step recipe if you want to try to make sundried tomatoes yourself.
There are three ways to make sundried tomatoes:
- Sun dry them
- Dry them in the oven
- Use a dehydrator
