Keto Bacon-Wrapped Pumpkin Slices

Keto Bacon-Wrapped Pumpkin Slices


It’s pumpkin season, and you shouldn’t need an excuse to enjoy this festive and sweet but lowish-carb ingredient. But just in case you need a little enticement, we wrapped this pumpkin in bacon. Slow-roasting accentuates the natural brown-sugar sweetness of the pumpkin, and crispy bacon makes everything better. Enjoy these as a snack, an appetizer, or a kind of thick-cut keto French fry. We suggest a sour cream dipping sauce with smoked paprika, which offers cool richness, an echo of the bacon’s smokiness, and a refreshing tanginess.
