Juicy burger idea from Winter Park, CO

5 Oct

Just got a yummy dinner idea from Sarah & Chris of creme brulee fame!  

(80/20) organic beef

Neiman ranch bacon

egg

sautéed onion slice

slice of cheddar cheese

low carb bread

Grill burger.  While burger grilling, cook bacon, remove bacon from pan when done. In the bacon grease fry one egg.  Slice cheddar cheese and toast one slice low carb  bread.

Butter bread, top with burger, cheese, bacon, sautéed onions and top off with fried egg!

This recipe alone is a great reason to live the low carb life! 

Make your own “bread”

I found this recipe for Oopsies while searching online for low carb bread. They remind me of a Gougère.  But much quicker to do and no flour or cheese.  I suppose with a little fiddling cheese could be added. They are very eggy and nothing like bread but it makes a great base for a ham and cheese melt. I think a sweetened version would be easy, add a little splenda to the batter and make one large Oopsie.  Spread with whipped cream and berries.

Oopsie Bread (makes 6 medium)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees and prepare baking sheet with parchment paper.

3 large eggs, separated (whites in one bowl, yolks in another)

3 ounces of cream cheese

pinch of salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

Beat yolks with cream cheese and baking powder until creamy. Whip egg whites with pinch of salt until very stiff peaks form. 

Gently add egg whites into the yolk mixture, taking care not to break down egg whites.

Mound 6 separate oopsies on prepared baking sheet spread a little to create a circle. Option-make one large oopsie for a dessert.

Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown on top.

I have been on the lookout for low carb bread that tastes good. I had heard about Julian Bakery bread but until recently it was not available in our area. This week I found it frozen in the health food section of our local grocery store. I bought the cinnamon raisin loaf.  It is so good! I am not just saying that because it has been 4 months since I had a piece of bread, at least I don’t think I am. The protein count of 14g/slice and fiber count of 13g/slice and net carbs of 2g/slice is so impressive. 

This fits perfectly in my low carb life.  In my short experience with this bread, I am so full after eating one slice that I don’t feel hungry for hours.  Look there are even raisins in it!

This bread is only available frozen in my area, which works out great.  It will keep for a long time and is easy to grab a slice to toast and add lots of butter! This would be a great snack with low carb natural peanut  butter.
