  1. To make the recipe actually low carb, thicken the sauce with xanthan gum instead of flour and replace the breadcrumbs in the topping with crushed pork rinds.

  2. This is not a low carb recipe. Honey ham, breadcrumbs and flour are NOT low carb ingredients. Ditch those and you might be onto something.

    1. Have you checked without the bread crumbs. I think finely chopped cauliflower would be a good substitute.

  5. I still don't understand why anyone would consider xanthan gum or pork rinds to be a viable option in any sort of nutrition. Sorry.

    Please consider making the white sauce from cauliflower--there is less butter and milk in it as well as no flour at all. (see below). Once you have the basic white sauce, you can make it more like a traditional cordon bleu sauce with the Dijon mustard and maybe some white wine. My grandmother used to eliminate the Dijon altogether and make a basic white sauce that had white wine and gruyere cheese in it. If you want a crunchy topping, use some crushed pecans mixed with some shredded gruyere cheese. As for the ham, I think black forest is better--if you really want to get fancy, use prosciutto.

    •8 large cloves garlic, minced
    •2 tablespoons butter
    •5-6 cups cauliflower florets
    •6-7 cups vegetable broth or water
    •1 teaspoon salt (more to taste)
    •½ teaspoon pepper (more to taste)
    •½ cup milk (more to taste)
