Thanks for posting all these new recipes Smile I've always wanted to try Oopsie Rolls, but just never have fixed them. I plan on trying the Mock Danish soon since I have all the ingredients. April, the Chocolate Chips sound really good. Any idea what the carb/calorie count is for it? Darri, your Mediterranean Chicken Bowl looks so good. And I love your idea of a "one bowl recipe" challenge! Very Happy

Angie's Version of Perky Pimiento Cheese

Original recipe (posted by April): http://www.aspicyperspective.com/2012/04/pimento-cheese-recipe.html

My version of the recipe: http://fatsecret.com/recipes/rec-8c0fab4d064046a3bd4cc50f0b8304eb/Default.aspx



I only used half of the amount of cheese that the recipe calls for. I also didn't have any fresh garlic, so I used prepared, chopped garlic, and added more Worcestershire Sauce. If I make it again, I'll add more hot sauce because it didn't turn out spicy enough for my taste.

(As always, I listed the exact brands that I used. If you use different brands than the ones that are listed, be sure to check the nutritional values because all brands are different.)

Ingredients:

1 - 8 oz. package Food Club Original Cream Cheese
6 oz. (12 Tbsp.) Food Club Real Mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. (1/2 oz. or 14 grams) chopped onions
1/2 tsp. Christopher Ranch Chopped Garlic
2 oz. Kraft Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 oz. Food Club Pepper Jack Cheese
2 Tbsp. Food Club Authentic Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 tsp. Food Club Chicken Wing Sauce
4 Tbsp. Diced Pimientos

Directions:

The original recipe says to use a food processor to puree the ingredients together. I don't own a food processor, so I used my electric chopper to puree the onion, and used prepared, chopped garlic. I softened the cream cheese in the microwave (about 30 seconds), then mixed the garlic, onions, and other ingredients into it.

Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Makes 4 one-half cup servings (Each serving is equal to 8 Tbsp.)

Nutritional Values per serving:

Calories: 648
Fat: 63
Cholesterol: 120
Sodium: 690
Carbs: 4.64
Fiber: .3
Sugars: 2.5
Protein: 10 (rounded up)

Angie, I didn't get a chance to run the nutrition info. I planned to see how many Tbsp the recipe made in order to do a serving size of 1-2 Tbsp. Unfortunately, someone's husband kept snackingon the chocolate chips before I could determine how many tbsp it made.
I've already been asked to make it again, to which I agreed if he would keep his hands off of it long enough for me to get the info I need.

I will have to try that mock danish...especially for DH. He is trying so hard to cut his carbs back, and maybe this will help him not feel so deprived.

BBD, with the Mock Danish, if you don't have the lemon don't worry about it, once I put it in and with the cinnamon I didn't. Yesterday I made a chocolate one, oh yum! I did 4 oz of cream cheese, 1 egg, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, 2 tbsp Splenda and about 1/2 tsp of vanilla. I then split it into 2 portions, had one yesterday and have one in the fridge for when I get the urge. I have been using ramkin dishes but I want to try one in a square or bigger tupperware dish and put some sugar free jam in the middle, more like a danish. Maybe that'll be tomorrows experiment.

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have a good stir fry sauce recipe they use? I'm going to do a beef stir fry tonight, probably using soy sauce, garlic, ginger, chilli, sesame oil - anything else I should add?

Leikoa those are the ingredients that I use when I am doing a stirfry. My husband likes me to add oyster sauce but I only add a little and a little does go a long way since it is thick (also it is extra carbs)...I think you could leave it off, and many times I leave it off.

I made the MIM but instead of cinnamon, I added herbs. Once oregano and italian spices. Just the other day I added a tsp of Mrs.Dash tomato and basil. It taste like artisan bread. Yum.

I made it for a snack with seasoned dipping oil. It felt like I was indulging in my favorite italian dish.

Thanks Jaime, I'll check out the carb counts on my oyster sauce and see how close to my 20g carbs I am by dinner time. Thanks for the suggestion. Smile

Rdrunr, the savoury MIM you made sounds delicious!

Dorothy, the Pimiento Cheese was really, really good, and I don't even like Pimiento Cheese lol, but it was almost too good, if you know what I mean lol. I wanted to eat ALL of it! As you know, THAT is my eating disorder. I don't want 1 serving, I want the whole dang thing. And it's really a struggle for me to keep from doing so. That's one reason why this way of eating works for me. There are so many foods that I can have the "whole thing" of, or eat my fill of (especially if I'm not concerned about my calories), and when I cook my meals, I only cook one serving so I can have it all. I did have the willpower to only eat one serving of the Pimiento Cheese a day (spread out over 3 days), and what was left, I gave to my family, but even just eating one serving of it made it difficult to get all of my veggies in for the day. Although I really liked it, it won't be something that I'll make on a regular basis. If you try it, let me know what you think! Smile

Toni thanks for the information on the jerky! I have mine cut and marinating since last night. It smells so good even in the fridge when I shake it around! I also see where I can make onion powder....know what I will do with any left over onions that I have.

I was reading in the manual/recipe suggestions book that came with my dehydrator and it mentioned using left over meats....have you ever tried that. Was just curious.

I cannot wait to get some chives to dry! Oh and garlic!!

I totally missed your post Jaime, no, I haven't used left over meats. I've thought about but, honestly, we don't often have left overs because I try to cook exactly what we'll be having for dinner or my fiance won't be able to stay out of it.

Cheeseburger Casserole

This is one of my favourites. I make this all the time, it's really yum and easy to make if you want something quick. Can't remember where I got the recipe from, I think it was from Linda's Low Carb (I'll double check later and update this post), I just eyeball most of the ingredients so I'm not sure of the exact counts.

1lb ground beef
2 slices middle bacon
1 tomato, diced
1/2 an onion, diced
1/4 cup pickles, diced
4 oz cheese, diced
1 tsp mustard
1/4 cup low carb ketchup
salt & pepper to taste

Chop up the bacon into bite sized pieces and fry in a little butter. Add the beef mince and brown. Add the ketchup and mustard and mix in. Season with salt and pepper. Add the tomato, onion, pickles and cheese and stir to combine. Serve on a bed of lettuce.

I like the raw onion cause it makes it taste more like a real burger, but if you don't like that idea, you can just add the onion when you cook the bacon. Smile Also, the heat of the meat will melt the cheese when you mix it in.

Low carb Biscuits

These turned out well....do spray your foil. The link doesn't suggest it. These were great. I used them with our steak tonight and brushed them with garlic butter. Both DH and DD had seconds.

Crockpot Roast Sticky Chicken (had it last night for dinner, it was gooood)

4 tsp salt
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp white pepper (which I didn't have so used black)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper (so with the white it's 1 1/2 tsp)
1 large roasting chicken

In a small bowl, thoroughly combine all the spices. Remove the giblets from the chicken, clean the cavity well and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the spice mixture into the chicken, both inside and out, making sure it is evenly distributed and down deep into the skin. Place in a resealable plastic bag, seal and refrigerate overnight. When ready to cook, put the bird into the crockpot and do not add any liquid. As the cooking process goes on it will produce it's own juices. (and boy does it ever!) Cook on low 8-10 hours, it will be falling off the bone tender. This seemed extremely long to me, I only did mine 6 hours on low and it fell off the bones.

1 serving ='s 1/4 of the chicken
Per serving, fat 35.04, carbs 1.84, fibre .68, net carbs 1.67, protein 38.04, calories 483.25

Mine wasn't sticky at all so not sure where the name comes from but I'll be making it again. DH commented it was a keeper for sure, I could make that any time.

Chicken Broccoli Casserole

This is one of my favourite casseroles. Not sure where my mum got the recipe from, I'll try to find out. This recipe's a little higher in carbs (about 8.5g per serving, depending on your soup) so is probably not suitable for induction.

Makes about 6 servings.

4 chicken breasts, pounded to approx. 1/2inch thickness
1 pack frozen cauliflower
1 pack frozen broccoli
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
4 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 cup grated cheese
salt & pepper

Spread the cauliflower and broccoli in a baking dish. Season both sides of the pounded chicken breasts and lay on top of the broccoli and cauliflower. In a bowl, combine the mushroom soup and mayonnaise and pour over the chicken, cauliflower and broccoli. Top with the cheese and bake at 180C (356F) for 20-30 mins, or until the chicken is cooked. Switch to grill/broil for the last 10 mins of cooking to crisp up the cheese. Enjoy!

This is yum! I like to serve this with a nice fresh salad.
