BBQ "Dogs"
Yet another use for my gluten-free-grain-free focaccia bread batter.
If you're like us, when you BBQ a big piece of brisket, like we did a few days ago, there’s always a lot leftover (there are just two of us). This time, I chopped about 1# of the leftover meat and added a few tablespoons of my low-carb BBQ sauce, with the intention of having convenient meat in the fridge for some sandwiches throughout the week. I knew I needed to bake some low-carb bread today as I was down to my last piece. Then when I started stirring all those ingredients up in my mixing bowl this finger-food idea just popped into my head. Using my protein bar silicone baking pan (but you could use a regular muffin pan), I formed the tastiest little treats! These would be great for parties, great snacks or even several for a grab-and-go lunch! They’re low in carbs, too! I have started adding 1 tsp. yeast dissolved in 1 T. warm water to my bread batter, not for rise, but for flavor. You can omit that, but it will only lower net carbs by .13 g, so why not go ahead and add it for that touch of yeast flavor? These are suitable once you get to the nuts level of Atkins Phase 2 (OWL).


1 recipe my gluten-free grain-free focaccia bread: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...cia-bread.html
12 oz. leftover chopped BBQ beef (I used grass-fed brisket)
c. low-carb BBQ sauce (Mine has 1.5 net carbs per tablespoon)

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350. Make up the bread recipe per that recipe’s instructions. Add in 1 tsp. yeast dissolved in 1 T. warm water. If you like, you could add a little onion powder to the batter, or finely minced green onion, but be sure to add in those carbs if you do! In another bowl, toss the chopped beef with the c. BBQ sauce. If not using silicone pans, grease them well to prevent sticking. Dip up about 2 tsp. batter into each of your pan’s 12 slots. This should take about half the batter. Using a spoon or fork, spread it evenly on the bottom of the form. Next dip 1 oz (about 1 Tbsp.) chopped beef mixture onto the batter. Gently spread the meat evenly. Finally, spoon the remaining batter on top of the meat in each slot (about 2 tsp.). Again, with the back of a spoon, spread that batter carefully and as evenly as possible. You want to completely cover the meat as best you can. There will barely be enough batter to complete the job, so it is important you measure the bottom and top batter as suggested to avoid running out before all 12 “dogs” are “constructed”. Place silicone pan on a sheet for support and pop into 350 oven for 25 minutes or until lightly browned as shown. ENJOY! Below is a pic of the silicone pan I used:

NUTRITIONAL INFO: Makes 12 “dogs”, each contains: (calculated with yeast added to the bread)

You could add some grated cheddar on top of the meat before topping with the final layer of batter, if you like. Again, be sure to add in carbs if you do that.

Oh, my. That looks delicious. They remind me a bit of the Cornish pasties my neighbor makes (she uses Emeril's recipe). The carb count on your beauties is just amazing!

Those look so good! Im really going to have to mix up some of that bread mix.

They're real good ladies. I'm going to try this pan to make some corn dogs with this batter next. Going to try to add some corn flavoring to this bread or one of my cornbread recipes maybe. I will have to cut the hotdogs into halves lengthwise to fit this pan nicely (I think). The slots are only 1" wide, but I think it's doable to use that way now.

Hey, I love the new pic, Ginaaaa. :)

What a brilliant idea! You could do this around hot dogs too, a perfect picnic lunch. Gosh, I mean, you could fill these with anything! I am a huge fan of the original bread recipe, it is more like bread than most other recipes. Thanks for sharing, Peggy:jumpjoy:

Yes, Gina, hot dogs strips and smoked sausage strips were going to be my next test for this recipe using this pan. I'm so glad you like the basic bread recipe.
