For me, I think the most helpful thing was to get over the "you can't have THAT for breakfast syndrome".

After that, the sky is the limit.

Great make ahead breakfast:

Breakfast casserole

1 lb bulk sausage, scrambled and drained
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp mustard
salt and pepper
shredded cheese (any kind, I like colby jack and pepper jack)
pepperoni slices (optional)

Spray 9x13 pan. Spread sausage into bottom of pan, sprinkle cheese over top then top with pepperoni slices. (I usually use 12 pepperoni slices - 1 for each slice of casserole) Mix eggs, cream, mustard, salt and pepper. Pour evenly into pan. Bake at 350* until cheese is melted and browned to your liking. 12 servings

To go along with this, I make the burger bun recipe (sticky on this board) leaving out the Splenda, adding cayenne pepper (not much!) and shredded cheese. The recipe usually makes 3 good sized belgian waffles that are separated into 4 sections --- 12 servings! I eat one serving of casserole with one section of burger bun. It's great!!!!!!! And sometimes, I also eat a couple slices of bacon... depends on how hungry I am that day!

Eggs and cabbage!
Really. Sounds gross, tastes good.
Fry up about a cup of shredded cabbage with butter. When it's nearly done, make a hole in the middle of the pile of cabbage and crack in two eggs. When they're nearly done, stir the whole mess together. Salt liberally.

If you are up for giving eggs another try, you might try a sufle... you can use a little soy or whole wheat flour for the vary modest amount required and flavor with a variety of things... my favorite is ranch.... it's easy and feels like a luxory!

this is a pretty common chinese dish (except they use soy sauce instead of butter, and scramble the eggs first)

Start Date: August 2002
I have been notorious in my family since I was a child for not being able to stand even the tiniest little taste of egg -- I'd pick all the egg out of potato salad and then I still wouldn't be able to eat it. Anyway, it's too expensive to have meat every morning for breakfast, so when I started low-carbing I decided to teach myself to like eggs. It took some doing, but now sometimes I crave eggs for breakfast! Here's my recipe for scrambled eggs which will practically melt in your mouth and may turn you into an egg lover again!

1 Tbs butter or bacon grease
2 large eggs
1 Tbs cream
salt & pepper

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. It is very, very important to keep the heat low (4-5 on an electric range). When the butter is melted, stir in the eggs and cream. Cook slowly, stirring every once in a while, till the eggs are set to your liking. Do not overcook! It's a good idea to turn off the stove before the eggs are completely set and let the heat from the saucepan finish cooking the eggs. Add salt and pepper after the eggs are cooked. (Adding salt before you cook the eggs toughens them). Serve with bacon!

Everytime that I think i've found the perfect brand it always turns out to have some type of sugar or syrup in it.
Any ideas?
Thank ya much

I'm like that too, love the flavor of sausage, but don't buy real sausage. The easiest way to make your own sausage is to use hamburger meat and add sausage seasoning to it. If you don't have the seasoning, you can add some sage and chili powder, comino, black pepper, and even thyme until you get the seasoning the way you like it. If you like it hot, then add crushed red pepper to it. Then make it into small patties like Jimmy Dean sausage looks and cook. If you use regular hamburger meat, not the lean, it works out pretty good as sausage.

Another item they have is the Boca sausage. It comes 4 in a package and they are like wieners/links and not bad. They are vegetarian, but one of the sausages is quite filling. They are in the frozen food section right next to the garden burgers and boca burgers. (boca burgers are good too, but you have to spice them up a bit)

Also for bacon, I use butterball turkey bacon and like it better cooked in a skillet with a little oil. You can microwave it, but it seems to taste better when done in the skillet.

This one perhaps?

KIM'S FLAXMEAL CINNAMON MUFFINS
3 eggs
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons oil
1/4 cup sugar free syrup, such as Da Vinci
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup flax meal
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons cinnamon (the amount is correct)

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with a fork. With a fork or spoon, beat in oil, syrup, water and vanilla. In small bowl, combine remaining dry ingredients, then stir into egg mixture. Let stand 5 minutes. Spoon into 12 well-greased muffin cups (without papers). Bake at 350║ 12-15 minutes, or until they are lightly browned and seem set to the touch. Remove from tin at once to cooling rack. Store in refrigerator.

Makes 12 muffins
Can be frozen

Ditto on the egg/meat casseroles on the order of Impossible Pies with Carbquik.

Lately DH and I have enjoyed Chocolate Shakes with Hood's Chocolate Milk, a packet of low carb no sugar Dutch Cocoa and Designer's protein chocolate flavoring and a dash of DaVinci's with crushed ice in the blender, with a splash of malt flavoring.

One of my fave breakfast foods is a protein smoothie.

1 cup water
1 cup frozen berries
1 scoop whey protein (Jay Robb's & FF are YUMMY brands!)
1 Tbsp flaxseed oil (you Atkins types can skip this - but adding some fat in the smoothie helps you feel full longer)
dash of cinnamon
dash of stevia

Blend until smooth and drink.

??? I don't get your reference here? As an "Atkins Type" I eat plenty of good fats, including flax oil or flax seed, coconut oil, three kinds of olive oil, organic lard....

Am I missing something?

In your earlier Post, you mentioned the the world's best flavor enhancer: BACON GREASE ! (IMO)

A tad of it makes the difference between "ho-hum" and "YUM"......

ah, well, in another thread here there was a lot of discussion on how yucky flaxseed oil tastes (an acquired taste, for most) so I thought I'd make it clear that flaxseed oil is optional. Clear as mud, huh? I get that alot.

I actually take a flaxseed oil capsule daily, and with my Dr. approval. I also take a similar amount of fish oil (capsule) daily, again with my Dr approval.
Oh, yeah, I also take 2 garlic oil caps daily.
None of them repeat or upset me in any way. I would not take anything without my Drs approval.

Faux French toast from pork rinds?

I remember seeing a recipe somewhere for Faux french toast made out of pork rinds and I'm bummed as I can't seem to find it now...Does anyone have it and would you please post it for me? I need a change up midweek from omelets.

Thanks!

French Toast

Ingredients:
1/2 of a 3-oz bag of unflavored pork rinds
2 eggs
1/4 cup heavy cream
3 pkts. Splenda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon egg nog extract (optional) ( I used vanilla)




How to Prepare:

Crumble pork rinds until they resemble bread crumbs.( I used my food processor) Set aside


Beat eggs well and then mix with the remaining ingredients and beat again. Add crushed pork rinds to the egg/cream mixture and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Mixture will thicken to a "gloppy" phase.

Meanwhile, heat skillet or griddle with butter or oil, and when hot, fry pancake style until golden brown on both sides.Serve with your favorite low-carb syrup.


HOWEVER - this is the best "French Toast" recipe I've tried.

"Fried" Breakfast Thingy (Low Carb)

I also found the batter a bit thin so I add 1 more TBS Flax meal and a little less cream.

2T flax seed meal 4gm minus 4gm fiber
1/2 tsp baking powder .5gm
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs 2gm
1/4C cream 1.5gm
2T vanilla whey mix[1/2 scoop] 1gm
cinnamon or whatever .5gm

Let sit 10 min to soften flax and thicken
Fry in small 2-3" circles....easier to turn over.
Makes enough for 2 as a side dish or 1 hungry person.
Whole thing has 5.5gm after subtracting the fiber.

(neither of these are MY recipes)

Thanks Phoebe!

You're a doll for putting this on there for me. Need to go get flax meal, I think, since I've also looked at Spongebob's bread. Or I'll order it from Netrition, since I live in an area that doesn't have a lot of "good" foods. the health food stores around here have a lot to be desired.

Appreciate it!

Beachlvr58...

I'm not a fan of sweets at breakfast usually either, but I wanted this recipe for "brunch" on Sundays (like today) since I don't get to eat usually until around Noon -too busy since it's my "domestic day".

So gotta ask you...since you like savory...what is "men's bread"?
