Sausage and Bacon “Cannelloni”

Sausage and bacon, what a made in heaven combination.

I combined it with eggplant, marinara sauce and mozzarella to create a keto version of Cannelloni.

Cannelloni was a very present dish during my childhood. Generally with ground meat, or chicken, lots of Béchamel sauce, lots of tomato sauce.

However, finding a good keto pasta recipe for cannellonis is an impossible task.

So, should we never eat it again? Well in the traditional version, there is no way it is keto or even low carb.

But, adapting the recipe to a keto dish is as you can see doable and makes a fantastic dish, trust me. I never post a recipe that I did not try myself first and found it good.

This keto cannelloni recipe is comfort food and so so delicious. And it is easy and freezable, so you can prepare it in advance, freeze and bake it later when you’re ready to eat, or even bake it and freeze.

Nutrition per portion

Ingredients
  • 1 medium eggplant
  • 2 medium size sausages (check for ingredients, no starches or sugar added, as natural as possible)
  • 3 slices of streaky bacon
  • 1/2 cup of home made marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup grated mozzarella
  • salt, black pepper and oregano to taste
  • For the marinara sauce
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes (I used an Italian brand)
  • 2 tbsp chopped onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt, black pepper and oregano to taste
Method
The Marinara sauce
  • Add the olive oil, garlic and onion to a pan and fry until the onion is translucent
  • Add the crushed tomatoes and simmer on low heat for 20 to 30 minutes, adding water as, and if, needed
  • Season with salt, oregano and black pepper to taste
  • Blend in a food processor if you like it smooth
The Cannelloni
  • Cut the eggplant into slices - you will use six slices, the rest can be used in another recipe
  • Grill the eggplant on high heat and reserve
  • Cut the sausages in half
  • Cut the bacon in half
  • Roll the bacon over the sausages, covering it as much as possible
  • Fry the sausage rolls on high heat until the bacon is fairly crispy
  • Involve the sausage rolls in the eggplant slices
  • Put them arranged side by side on an oiled oven proof dish
  • Season to taste
  • Add the marinara sauce in a thick layer
  • Add the grated cheese
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 200ºC until cheese melts and turns crispy on the edges
