tofu, mayo, dry mustard, red onion, scallions, parsley, turmeric, S&P. very very delicious. I usually make my own, but wf had it on sale this week--I am doing a more plant-based LC plan, so no eggs for now.

I was never much of a fast food person with the exception of a Chic fil A sandwich. If anyone was ever a Chic Fil A fan, I used this copycat recipe I found online and it was really good. Just sub your Smart buns for HC buns.

For flour I used Jen Eloff's flour mix- but I'm sure any LC flour mix will work as well
For milk, I used Ripple milk


PRINT RECIPE
INGREDIENTS:

4 hamburger buns, split
1 head green leaf lettuce, leaves separated
1 beefsteak tomato, sliced
20 dill pickle slices
FOR THE CHICKEN

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup dill pickle juice
1 1/2 cups milk, divided
1 cup peanut oil
1 large egg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Place a chicken breast on a cutting board. With your hand flat on top of it, carefully slice the chicken in half horizontally. Trim excess fat as needed.
In a large shallow baking dish, combine chicken, pickle juice and 1/2 cup milk; marinate for at least 30 minutes. Drain well.
Heat peanut oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
In another large shallow baking dish, whisk together remaining 1 cup milk and egg. Stir in chicken to coat and drain excess milk mixture.
In a gallon size Ziploc bag or large bowl, combine chicken, flour and confectioners’ sugar; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Working in batches, add chicken to the skillet and cook until evenly golden and crispy, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
Serve chicken immediately on burger buns with green leaf lettuce, tomato and pickles.

Does the pickle juice curdle the milk? I'd have a reaction to that lol.

Not at all. The pickle juice really tenderized the meat and made it flavorful.

I can co-sign the Chick fil A recipe, I've made it a few times and it is wonderful. I think I used either carbalose or carbquik mixed with lupin flour for low carb. I don't remember.

I bought some and I'm impressed. Very much like a commercial hamburger bun in flavor and texture, slightly sweet like Ouiz said, but not obnoxiously sweet. They made it to Texas with the special styro/ice-packaging fee. Thanks so much for posting these, Ouiz. Even my hubs liked the taste and texture. Must grill some burgers this week!

LOL! I was just thinking I need to get a deep freezer. At this moment, I have nothing but a lot of Smart Buns and Halo Top Ice Cream in my freezer. Plus a ton of sugar free ice pops for my 3 yr old niece.

I finally got around to ordering some today. I only ordered 4 packages because I will just use them for burgers. I have lots of low carb bread in the freezer that I need to eat up for toast, etc. I can't wait to get my order.

I got a small one at home depot a few weeks ago. It was regularly like $209 and it was on sale for $149...it was bigger than the small one I donated which I bought 15 years ago at sears for over $200. It was old and the lid didn't shut very well. The new one holds a lot. I always check the deals there and at lowes, looking for bargains. And best of all, it doesn't take up much room. It's not frost free, but I can live with that.

I noticed a lot of food waste when we had the deep freezer, I would just keep buying stuff and tossing it in there! Having one freezer is much more manageable for me now.

I ordered two packages of the smart buns. I have some low cal/low-ish carb hamburger buns that our local grocery store sells, and I only eat maybe one per week, so it lasts me quite a while in the fridge. Two packs of Smart Buns will last me probably 3 months or so.

My wife put a write on board on our freezer and she writes down everything that gets put in there. This is the only way I would ever remember to use stuff up cuz I don't like digging for it. She also put plastic baskets in the bottom for stuff like nuts, etc. Its way easier to pick up the basket and go thru it that way. She likes labeling everything, so that helps me.

A recipe I got from my Hello Fresh box that I thought was fabulous and would really go well with the Smart Buns!

Pork and Apple Burger w/Rosemary Root Vegetables (Makes 2)

8 ounces fresh pork
1/2 shredded apple
1 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped fine
1/4 tsp ground marjoram (this was my addition)
1 tsp sugar free honey (my addition)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Mix all ingredients together and form into two equal size patties. Spray pan with cooking spray, and cook patties over medium high heat for 4-6 minutes per side, until cooked through.

For my husband's burger, I sliced a bit more apple and cooked it until it was just soft, and then put it on the burger along with a slice of white cheddar cheese on a buttered, toasted brioche bun. I ate mine plane, on a low calorie bun with a homemade honey mustard dressing.

1 tablespoon mayo
2 tsp sugar free honey
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tsp balsamic vinegar

I loved this recipe so much, that I went to the local co-op, bought a pound of ground pork and made smaller breakfast size patties, eight total. I used a whole apple for one pound of pork. I love it with a fried egg after an intense workout, a nice change of pace from LC pancakes and bacon.

I just received my order for the Smart Buns. So glad I came back to the thread...that recipe for the pork patties sounds scrumptious EL! Going to have to try that one!

The buns look great, more like a real high carb than the Great LC Bread Co.

I got a batch that was unevenly cut (the bottom half was much bigger than the top) so I have been using them as bread (getting three pieces from each bun by slicing the bottom half into two rounds). Love them.

I bought the sesame seed buns and toasted one for a cheeseburger. I add spicy ketchup, mustard, fresh onion - so I could not detect any sweet taste. It was delicious! Wendy's used to have a spicy crispy chicken guacamole sandwich that I will try to make next. My Lupin flour works great for crispy fried chicken. Thanks for telling us about Smart Buns, Ouis!

just so people aren't scared off, the "sweet" taste is barely there! It just makes it consistent with the flavor of regular HB buns!

So glad you liked Redeemed! Great idea Barbo!

I'm right now eating one of these with a Five Guys burger. This must be witchcraft.

And they're SO filling my goodness. I'm struggling to finish this burger.

I just received my first order of these. They are great. The best low carb low cal bun I've had. I especially liked Quis suggestion of cutting the bottom in half and toasting like a faux English muffin. Very good and very filling.

Just wondering if anyone has tested their blood sugar after eating these? I'd like to try them (I'm in maintainence) but I'm so skeptical of any products after the while Dreamfield's lawsuit.
