keto spiced pork patties dinner recipe

When I cook keto dinners for my family, half the time I make my kids something else. They are 6 and 8 years old and can be picky eaters. Especially when it comes to things without carbs. So this meal is something I made for my husband and myself — but then they shocked me when they asked to try it. And then they DEVOURED their portions. And followed up with asking when I was going to be making it again.
