Does it matter if I use pre-shredded mozzarella, or shred it myself? I know the pre-shredded has cellulose and I wasn’t sure if that would change the texture. Can’t wait to try this!

You can use either, really. Whichever one you prefer will work.

I loved it. The gnocchi were chewy soft n couldn’t even make out it was keto!

I found a chicken recipe that calls for gnocchi. I wanted to make it keto, which is how I came across your recipe here. But the chicken recipe calls for putting the gnocchi in a pan of oil to saute and slightly brown them. Do you think these would brown well, or just melt since they are cheese based?

@Antonietta Lazzarato, Once you boil them and set the egg, I think you should be able to brown them in butter. As mentioned elsewhere, definitely start the butter browning before you add the gnocchi.

@Kati, When I have made regular browned gnocchi, I brown the butter in a frying pan and just add the gnocchi and stir, or pour the browned butter over the gnocchi on your dish as if it were sauce, it's then ready to mangia (eat). This is good for a vegan dish (if dairy is allowed and but no meat). I will have to try is recipe since my husband and I have gone keto.

I think it could be doable to fry them slightly, but definitely don't think they would brown without a total meltdown.

Any pasta substitutions?

Are you asking for pasta substitutions in place of making the gnocchi?

Great recipe! However, I didn't use Himalayan salt, instead I just used garlic salt. I made these to go in chicken and gnocchi soup and they held their shape very nicely!

Glad you enjoyed them! Garlic salt idea is a good one!
