One of these was actually my lunch today! I absolutely love ricotta, so I gave this a shot. You really could play with the ingredients, but I went for a lemon basil savory recipe. I really wouldn’t change much at this point. I’m tempted to use a bacon spoon with these in order to up the protein a bit.
- 15 oz ricotta cheese (choose whatever kind has the lowest net carb count)
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 2 eggs
- zest of one small lemon
- 1 Tbsp fresh finely chopped basil
- salt and pepper to taste
- 4 lemon slices (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease 4 1/2 cup ramekins.
Beat all ingredients together either with a fork or a mixer. Using a half cup measure, portion out the mixture equally into the ramekins. Sprinkle with additional parmesan cheese. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Top with lemon slices (optional).

Great idea. Just bought fresh ricotta and will be making this tomorrow. Thanks. Tara
Made this today. Tastes like it’s missing something. I might sub out the basil with chives and add more parm.
