The rotel/hamburger/cream cheese saga...

Does this darn thing have a name? If not can we make one up? I'm sick of writing down rotel/hamburger/cream cheese

BTW it did work, lost 2lbs after eating it last night

Seriously....a name?

I wish I could say it worked for me, but it did not. It's the cream cheese, though, for me. I wish I was one of those people that could eat it and still lose weight. I think too much dairy is what does me in. I'm sure if I just put in like hamburger, rotel and some other stuff.. I'd see a loss.

Rotel Ragout?

Which makes me think of Carmine:

The big Ragout?

LOL!

Well, I am very cream cheese intolerant as well. Seriously. I have been so scared to eat any of it or any recipe with it in it because I usually gain on it. I cut the cream cheese part in half and only used 4oz and added a little brie (only soft cheese I had). I'm wondering if you cut the cream cheese in half if it would work? Or maybe use 2oz of cream cheese and 2oz of another soft cheese?

I think even a little bit of cream cheese makes me gain. I would make Sugar Free Sheila's mock pumpkin pie which only called for an ounce of cream cheese per serving and I would sometimes cut it down to 1/2 an ounce and I STILL saw a gain. I'm like, seriously? It's a shame cause I do love cream cheese. I could warm it up and eat it like that if it didn't make me gain. I don't know. Maybe I'll try it again with less cream cheese once I lost a little more weight, cause I'm tired of this up/down nonsense.

Glad you like it, Mrs. Woods. If I cannot come up with a recipe which goes down in LC history, I feel I must at least take a shot at naming one~!

Seriously I'm the exact same way, I promise. Any cream cheese touches my lips, gain of at least 2 lbs the next day. I'm wondering if it might be because we're mixing it with high fat beef?

I only used half a tube of sausage and 4 oz of cream cheese because I was trying to lower the carb count a bit. The Rotel is what really makes it though.

At my house it's "the rotel stuff" or just rotel. I never knew what rotel was till this recipe. But I love it. Just ate it for bkfst. It's the new bkfst. I haven't eaten an egg since I found this stuff.

It could be the calorie total, but the gain showing could just be from retaining water due to the salt. Usually water weight drops in a few days, so this is happenings it's probably just water weight. I more concerned with fat weight not water weight.

I think the sausage does add a little something - although this has been the only time I've made it! - but I can't handle alot of spice. The sausage with the Rotel is almost too much for me, so I think I'm going to try it with just the hamburger.

I picked 5 servings and it has 690 cals/59.2g fat/5.2g carbs/32.8g protein. Calorie counters and lowfat people would have a heart attack!
