in re: the cabbage & Hamburger.

I use enchilada sauce (linda sue has a good recipe) or Taco Bell Taco sauce (I get it at walmart, in a tall thin bottle, has zero carbs) with this recipe. I, also add onions sometimes. Also I add cheese sometimes too..

There are so many variations I do with the shredded cabbage and HB meat. Haven't found a one that everyone doesn't LOVE! hehehe.

Here's another favorite take on it.

Brown HB meat. I season it with pepper and garlic, mmmmmmmmmmmmm
Heat cabbage in bacon grease. (I, sometimes add onions with the cabbage)
When cabbage and/or onions get wilty (is that a word, lol) mix into browned hb meat.

At this point, I nearly always add grated cheese, but that it optional.

Once cheese melts, serve hot..

Would probably freeze well, but there is never any left at my house!

**See notes below for interesting variations**


** Ok, here is where the cheese chip sloughs off the bah humbug and gets revamped. There are a plethora of spices and flavors out there that you should NEVER have a problem duplicating a flavor of chip.

Want Hidden Valley Ranch Lays?- Hidden Valley Ranch dressing powder put into a spice container and sprinkled lightly over chips while first side is cooking.

Want Cheddar and Sour Cream? - Cheddar powder and sour cream mixed to a thick paste and added while first side is cooking. Simpler yet, would be if they have a sour cream powder, and they might... I have no clue.

**See where this can go? I love the cheese chip because for 1/2 the price of lays I can get a whole heck of a lot of whole chips (BIG ones at that) vs 1/2 bag of broken sad little chips with a few whole ones thrown in for the "gee my money wasn't TOTALLY wasted" factor.
I just made this with a sprinkle of hidden valley ranch powder...mmmmm GOOD!

Funny, I made it and did not like it either. I ate it though, but will never make it again.

not sure if you can freeze it but its simple and quick to make.

Just made this, and it is GREAT! Thanks, Epix!

Lovin' this thread! Can't wait to try more of these awesome-sounding recipes!

I absolutely love this thread and am finally finished reading over it all. I found several recipes I want to try but am sure I missed a few good ones.

For those who didn't like the orange chicken, what was it you didn't like? I make orange chicken but I use garlic, pepper, salt, pure orange extract and a little sweetener. It tastes like the good stuff without the breading.

Asian Chicken & Broccoli (i.e. Chinese Take-Out Brown Sauce)

Not sure if this one is on the thread yet, but I just made it and it's almost like the Chicken & Broccoli I get at America Chinese take-out restaurants. (My favorite!)

It has 4 ingredients instead of 3, so it's a bit harder to make!

Chinese Take-Out Brown Sauce

3 T. Soy Sauce
2 T. Oyster Sauce
3 T. Cooking Oil
1/2 cup chicken broth (or beef broth if making a beef dish)

Put first 3 ingredients in skillet or wok and heat on medium high. Add your protein and cook til mostly done. Add veggies. Add broth slowly and only add entire amount if it's ok for the sauce to be thin or unless you want to add a thickener like ThickNthin.

I use this sauce for Asian Chicken & Broccoli:
Chicken breast meat - cooked & cut into chunks or thin slices
Broccoli spears (fresh or frozen - I use frozen & buy at Sam's in the huge bag)

This could be a Low Carb Bubble & Squeak Recipe (since we can't do potatoes)! I always LOVED the name of that dish (tasted good too).

LOW CARB PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

1 c. peanut butter
1 c. splenda
1 egg

Mix ingredients together, press with fork, and bake at 350 degrees until cooked through. This recipes has been used by my family for years just with regular sugar instead of the splenda. It makes for a really flavorful peanut butter cookie!

Have you made it with Splenda, or just thinking the sub would work?

Don't know about the poster above, but many people have made it with Splenda. Personally I found I prefer it with some additions. The above recipe tastes good, but is VERY fragile!!!!

Yeah I've made this with splenda. I found it works just find with the splenda and I also use a natural peanut butter to cut the carbs a little more.

I've spent a couple of hours going through this thread, saving recipes I want to try. This thread is awesome. Here is my contribution (although it's four ingredients):

Tex-Mex Chicken
Chicken breasts (I like to season it with Konriko Greek Seasoning - no MSG)
Top with diced bell pepper & onion
Bake @ 350 for 30 minutes.
Top with shredded cheddar cheese. Place back in oven until the cheese is melted (about 5 minutes).

Thanks for the great recipes! I can't wait to try many of them!

The only one I can add right now is Buffalo Chicken wings. Marinate in Frank's Red Hot sauce. (1/3 cup butter optional) bake for 1 hour 425. Serve w/celery and blue cheese or ranch dressing.

All of these recipes sound good to me! Great ideas.

I'm not much of a cook though. How do you stuff a chicken breast?

These are so easy and so yummy. (i did a quick search to see if they were already posted, we can delete this if they are.)

Jalapeno Poppers

Ingredients:
Jalapeno Peppers
Cream Cheese
Bacon

Steps:

1) slice jalapeno's in half and deseed
2) fill with cream cheese
3) wrap with 1/3 or half (depends on ur size peppers) a strip of bacon (secure with toothpicks... i didn't do that and they came out fine)


Bake in over 350 degrees to desired crispiness. (i like my bacon crisp so i baked em for 45 min...)

I make the stuffed jalapenos another way. I toast bacon bits. The kind you get in a bag that are soft, not Bac-O's. Then I add them to the cream cheese and mix it all up. Then I stuff fresh jalapenos that are cleaned and deseeded. No baking. Just eat 'em up. They never last long at a party and I'm always asked to bring them. You can't get much easier than this.
