Leftover diced ham (about 2 cups), 1lb frozen cauliflower(thawed) or broccoli(also thawed), 1/2 jar Ragu light parmesan alfredo sauce.

Roughly chop thawed veggies and toss in a pan with 1/2 cup water. Simmer until tender and drain.
In the same pan, toss the ham in and warm through, then add the alfredo sauce and heat, then add the veggies and toss together. Salt and pepper to taste.
If you want, top with 1 cup shredded mild cheddar or (better yet)1/2 cup shredded smoked gouda and let melt on top before serving.

Makes 4 servings at 8g carbs each.

(In the pre-low-carb-days, I'd have made this with leftover potatoes and added peas to it!).

Just put a little vegetable oil in a pan, add chicken till its brown, add sauce, stir, add broccoli and stir until chicken and broccoli is done.

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

Making this tonight! Can't wait.

Also bumping so we can add more 3 ingredient recipes

Quick Hamsalad

This is so easy and yummy
-ham
-mayo
-SF sweet relish
I just cut up a few peices of cooked ham(approx. 1/2 cup?), put them in my bullet until small pieces, then add about a Tbs mayo and Tbs SF sweet relish and blend again for a few seconds. I'm sure this would work using another appliance if you don't have a bullet.
So delish!

i made my own fishsticks a couple years ago- buy a 3 pound bag of frozen whiting fillets- around 4 bucks at walmart. Poach fish in vegetable broth or salted water. Let cool. Remove all the skin and bones till all you have left is small chunks of white fish. Add one egg and hand mix- you dont want the fish pureed. I suppose you could do it in a food processor but the texture might turn out spongy because of the egg. Add another egg white if the fish mixture doesnt stay together. Take a small amount, about 1/3 a cup in your hand and roll into a little log. Repeat and place on cookie sheets and stick in the freezer until you can pick up the little logs easily. Then roll each one in egg then lowcarb breadcrumbs (i forget which brand i had at the time). I recommend putting them back on the sheets and freezing completely before frying or baking them. I think i only baked mine and they were good! You can make a low carb tartar sauce with mayo, lemon juice and sugar free pickle relish, or cocktail sauce with low carb ketchup, lemon juice and fresh horseradish, and you are set! I remember these being very filling- i could only eat 4 at a time, so they lasted me a while. These are meant to be kept in the freezer. Time consuming yes, but so worth it when you have the time

This is a great thread! With so much cooking to do it is nice to have some quick and easy things to rely on.

I have a rotisserie but have never tried the Lawry's Season Salt so I think I may pick some up and give that a try. Chicken doesn't take any time at all in the rotisserie!

Lunch today- minute steak topped with sauteed peppers and mozarella. I put some of the chili sauce on top to kick it up a notch.

Oh Wow!!! This is one of the best things I've tasted, ever! It was very easy, and I'm glad I portioned it out before I tried it because it was amazing and I would have eaten the whole thing!
Thanks for the great recipe... I love this thread!!!

I think this is the kind you're talking about:



It's called Sriracha. The problem with that kind is that it has sugar in it. The kind in a jar doesn't. I found the ingredient list online:

Ingredients: Chili, sugar, garlic, salt, distilled vinegar, potassium sorbate and sodium disulfite as preservaties, and xanthan gum.

What I bought looks like what LindaSue posted but its just chili sauce doesn't have garlic. It does have like 3 carbs per serving but its so hot I don't use much. Still looking for the real deal but no luck at 4 different stores so far and I don't like to order off the internet.

Creamy cabbage

I did this in my pressure cooker but I am sure you can slow cook it or put it on the stove.

1 Large head of cabbage
1 can cream of chix mushroom soup
1/2c chix broth


I cut up the cabbage and put in the PC. Topped with soup and broth. The pressure cooker only took 3mins to finish.

I also added a little onion, pepper and minced garlic before closing.

This is the first time I did this, but it came out YUMMY!!

Ham Salad

Ham (you can use the bone in kind that you have to cook, or get the stuff in the chub)
Cream Cheese
Sour Cream
Seasonings to taste


I don't have exact measurements for this one - I basically shred the ham in my little food processor (12 bucks at Wally World and it does just fine) until I get tired of shredding ham. Then I add at least two bricks of cream cheese (softened) and then add sour cream until I get a pleasant consistency. Sometimes, I don't add any seasoning, sometimes salt and pepper to taste, and occasionally old bay. This ham salad is always a hit at potlucks, and works great for sandwiches, wraps, or just on crackers.
