Coffee “drinks” can be carb loads!

8 Jul

Watch those fancy coffee drinks at coffee shops.  I wrote about this last summer but figured good time to remember this.  It is so tempting  to get an ice-cold mocha or  latte.  Remember in the low carb life heavy cream and half and half have less carbs than milk! So what might say “skinny” on the label is a carb load!

Yield: 4 portionsportabella-skins

Serving size: 1 Portabella cap with toppings

Ingredients

1 T Chives, fresh, minced
1 Tomato, small, seeded and chopped
2 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
2 cup Cheddar cheese,  shredded

Preheat oven to 450° F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray; set aside. Brush mushroom caps and edges with oil. Sprinkle stem-side with salt and pepper and place, rounded side down, on baking sheet. Divide cheese among mushroom caps and bake 10 minutes or until cheese begins to melt and edges begin to brown. Remove baking sheet from oven and sprinkle bacon, tomato and chives over mushrooms. Return baking sheet to oven and cook an additional 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and mushrooms are hot. If desired, cut into wedges and serve with toothpicks.

this recipe originally from the Mushroom Council~ low fat cheddar and turkey bacon removed to include regular cheddar cheese and bacon.  LOVE the LOW CARB LIFE! 

Great breakfast idea!
