FIRECRACKER SHRIMP

Notes:
This is a delicious way to make up shrimp. The hot flavor adds a special taste to this dish.

Ingredients:
1 lb. Med. or Large Fresh Shrimp (peeled,divined, and butterfly, leave tail attached)
Jalapeno Peppers (stemmed, seeded, and sliced length ways to taste)
Jack Cheese sliced about the size of each jalapeno pepper
12 oz. Bacon , cooked half way through, but NOT crispy!(cut in half)
Creole Seasoning


Preparation:
Place slice of jalapeno pepper and jack cheese inside of shrimp and wrap with bacon. Shrimp may be held secure with toothpick or place several on skewer. Sprinkle with Creole seasoning to taste. Place on grill or baking sheet at 375 degrees until bacon is lightly crisp. Remove shrimp and place on serving try with orange marmalade dipping sauce. We have found this dip is a wonderful compliment with fire cracker shrimp or any fried shrimp.

1 Jar Orange Marmalade (sugar free of course..or make with sugar free honey and orange divinci's)
1/4 C. Creole Mustard (or to taste)

Mix Creole mustard with orange marmalade. Some like it mild and others prefer spicy.

CHIPS of Cheese

Any good cheese. (I like the 8 oz rectanglular bars of KRAFT in different flavors). (Or you can use pre-sliced cheese like KRAFT DELI DELUX).

Put SMALL (3/4" squares), THIN (as thin as you can cut them with a small paring knife) squares of cheese on PARCHMENT paper on a flat plate. Microwave until barely browned.

These make great chips for any kind of dip. My favorite way to eat them is to make BRIE sandwiches out of them. YUM!

ENJOY!

Those are black olives!

What do you do if you don't have parchment paper. Can you use paper towel or wax paper

Almond Thins

I tried this recipe this weekend and it was AWESOME! SOOOOOO EASY!

Great to use for "dippy things"



Almond Thins

1 cup almond flour
1 packet of Splenda
1 egg white
pinch of salt, garlic powder, & onion powder

Preheat oven 325. Mix ingredients well. Place mixture onto a well greased piece of tin foil. Spray a piece of wax paper with cooking spray and lay over top of mixture. Use a rolling pin to roll out to a cracker thickness. Gently remove wax paper. Sprinkle more salt on top if desired and press lightly into dough. Score with knife or pizza cutter into squares. Lay tin foil on rack in oven. Bake until golden brown about 10 minutes. Makes around 50 crackers.

Carb count is about 13 for the whole batch. You can also vary the flavor-use ranch powder, ground bacon bits, season salt...

Meatballs

Ground Beef, ground italian sausage, garlic powder, onion powder, egg and parmesan cheese. Mix well and make your meatballs whatever size. You can pan fry or bake. They're really good! You can add cheddar cheese instead of parmesan too!

Tortilla Pin Wheels

Low Carb Tortillas
Spinach Dip or Artichoke Dip (recipes on this thread!)
Ham or Prosciutto Slices (thin)
Optional ( or you can alternate for different colors): Cheddar Cheese, Dill Pickle slices, black olives - all sliced thin

OR

Salmon or tuna salad

Spread the tortilla shells with the Dip - to within about 1/2 inch from the edges. Add a layer of the thinly sliced ham or prosciutto, followed by a layer of cheddar and black olives, or cheddar and pickles. Or, spread with the salmon or tuna salad.

Roll up and secure with toothpicks. Refrigerate overnight. Slice in 1 inch rounds, or diagonally. Delicious and pretty. Arrange in rows on a tray, and garnish with sprigs of parsley.


Sweet Tortilla Pin Wheels

Low Carb Tortilla Shells
Cream cheese, whipped and sweetened with Splenda and cinnamon, or with Sugar Free KoolAid (to taste), or Jello powder (to taste)
Strawberry slices
Chocolate syrup

Spread the shells with the sweetened and flavored cream cheese. Add strawberry slices, drizzle with chocolate syrup. Roll up and secure with toothpicks. Refrigerate overnight. Slice in 1 inch rounds or diagonally. Serve cold as an appetizer, or for dessert. Arrange in rows on a tray, and garnish with low carb "sugared" mint leaves.

To make "sugared mint leaves: Brush mint leaves sparingly with egg white, then dip in granular Splenda, or for a more authentic look, maltitol, or other polyol (sugar alcohol in crystal form.

sliced fruit platter & fruit dip

suggestions needed for brunch.

I KNOW fruits aren't on the menu, but that's what I've been asked to bring.

There must be something that's better than other fruits.

Please help!

Try this one.....

Taco dip:

Brown 1-2 pounds of hamburger. Drain fat. Mix in 1 package of Taco seasoning(homade is less carbs) and 3/4 cup water. Simmer for 5-10 mins. Remove from heat and add 1 small jar of Salsa (Tostitos size) Mix together. Place in rectangle baking pan/ casserole dish. Press down.

For second layer, In a bowl blend 4-6 oz of cream cheese and 1 cup of sour cream. Layer on top of hamburger layer.

Top with green onion and tomatoes(optional) And grated cheese.

Bake for 5-10 minutes.. until middle is warm.
Some people may rather it not cooked.

*********I wait until I take it out of the oven to put the cheese on.. That way it's much easier to get through as the cheese doesn't harden.

Serve this with Nacho chips for the non low carbers and cheese chips for the low carber.

SOOOOOOOOOOOO YUMMY!!!

Smoked Oyster "Rumaki" Football Snacks

Take a can of large smoked oysters. Cut long strips of bacon in three sections, and secure each section around an oyster with a toothpick. Fry in a skillet in one inch of hot vegetable oil, turning until bacon is brown and slightly crisp. Guys love this. Some of us girls do, too.

Hot Mexican Cheese Squares

One more...and these are far tastier than they sound!

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar
2 cups shredded monterey jack
5 eggs
1 can chopped jalapenos
6 oz. whipping cream
How to Prepare:


Combine the four cups of shredded cheeses and blend well. Spray an 8 inch square pan with cooking spray or olive oil. Place half of the shredded cheese in the pan. Sprinkle first layer of cheese with chopped jalapenos to taste. Canned
chopped green chiles could be substituted if you are faint of heart or wimpy of tongue. Top with the remaining 2 cups of cheese. Wisk the eggs and whipping cream together until smooth (I like to pour in a little of the juice from the jalapenos). Pour egg mixture over the cheese, and sprinkle with additional jalapenos if desired. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes, turning on broiler for the last 2-3 minutes to brown. Let cool for 15 minutes, and cut into 2" squares. Best consumed with a frosty cold Michelob Ultra.

Really easy and everyone seems to like them. Got them out of a 60's era cookbook put out by America's Newspaper Food Editors.

Stuffed Pecans

pecan halves
equal parts blue cheese and butter

Soften the blue cheese and butter and mix thoroughly together. It only takes about an ounce of each and you can make lots.

Spread the mixture on a pecan half. Top with another. Press slightly together and set on your serving plate. Repeat til you have all you want. Cover the plate with plastic wrap and about 20 minutes before serving remove from the fridge.

Hooters style hot wings - I use Atkins bake mix in place of flour.

Season the bake mix with paprika, garlic powder, red (ceyene) pepper, salt, & pepper.
Wash the wings, cut into sections if desired, and dry them with paper towels.
Coat the wings in the "breading", put them in a bowl, cover and put them in the fridge for 2 hours - this will cause the breading to stick to the wings. If you don't do this, the breading will just fall off once you put the wings into the oil.

Heat the oil in deep fryer to 370 degrees. Put in wings in single layer and cook for 10 minutes. While they are cooking, prepare the wing sauce...

Wing sauce:
1 cup (2 sticks) of butter
1 cup of hot sauce - I prefer Frank's Red Hot

Wing sauce:
1 cup (2 sticks) of butter
1 cup of hot sauce - I prefer Frank's Red Hot
1 tsp crushed garlic

Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. When melted, add the hot sauce & garlic - whisk it all together.

When wings are done, drain them on paper towels. Then put the wings in a bowl, pour in hot sauce "toss" the wings in the bowl until completely covered. Serve immediately with ranch, blue cheese, celery, or by themselves. Orange hot pants are optional.

Nutty Buddies


Cream cheese
ham or turkey slices
accent or other seasoning or none at all
shelled sunflower seeds
bean sprouts

spead cream cheese on meat slices top with a small amt of seasoning (opt), sprinkle with sprouts and sunflower seeds and roll up. Very good. If you can have the extra carbs this is good on tortilllas(low carb ones), just layer everything on the tortillas.

Everything sounds wonderful on here. Dottie those mushrooms really sound good too, I'll have to try them.
