Cooler weather means food that sticks to your ribs. Well, I guess you could have good rib-sticking food at any time. But, it just feels like food like this is made for fall. And you know what? I think keto is a perfect vehicle to make this happen. The best thing about this dish (well, besides eating it) is the super cheesy crust. It’s so good…and literally a game changer.
