Bacon Wrapped Roasted Pumpkin

Crispy bacon and golden, caramelized pumpkin make a colorful keto veggie side. Paprika and chili powder add a hint of heat, balancing out the richness.

Toss over a fresh salad (try spinach, red onion, feta and walnuts), serve as a side dish, or cut smaller bites for appetizers.

Toothpicks hold the bacon in place while cooking, and act as a built-in “handle,” avoiding any mess when eating.

For a small meal, pair a few bacon-wrapped pumpkin slices with a creamy keto soup.
