This is one of our favorite side dishes.

HEAD'S UP. THIS IS A GREAT SIDE DISH

Ricotta Spinach Balls LC
Gnocchi
Pre-heat oven to 350
Butter a 9x13" Pyrex baking dish

1 lb. fresh baby spinach
8 oz. whole ricotta cheese
3 tbs. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg yolk, beaten
4 tbs. butter
Salt and pepper to taste

Place baby spinach in boiling water for one minute.
Remove to an ice bath and shock to stop it cooking.
Drain well, then squeeze it DRY. Chop it.
Place in bowl and add 2 tbs. butter and all the
rest of the ingredients.

Form into balls and lay in buttered dish.
Drizzle with the rest of the butter and sprinkle
with Parmesan cheese lightly

Bake 30 minutes.

Makes about 15 balls that will fill the baking dish without
them touching each other.

This recipe is very basic and much can be done with it.
Sauce, more cheese on top broiled, garlic. I hope that you
will try it, it's so very LC and yummy.
We used it as a side with steak on the BBQ

Chocolate mug cake

1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or 1/4 peppermint extract
1 Tablespoon heavy whipping cream
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3 Tablespoons Splenda
1 tsp baking powder
1 Tablespoon butter (melted or very soft)

Spray mug with Pam. Beat egg in mug. Add all other ingredients and whisk until smooth. Microwave 30 - 60 seconds until it puffs up and no longer looks wet in the middle.
I found this recipe on this forum but it's been so many years ago that I can't find the link.

This is my go to when I'm craving something sweet but don't want to go overboard.

This is simple, with uncomplicated taste, and everyone goes nuts for it. Makes a generous amount. To save time, you may cook and crumble the bacon, and sauté the onion a couple of days in advance. Put each in a ziplock bag and refrigerate until needed.

Cheesy Bacon Dip

12 ounces sliced bacon
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
16 ounces sour cream
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line a large cookie sheet with sides, with foil, shiny side down.

Lay the bacon strips flat on the foil-lined sheet. The slices may be touching, but try not to overlap. If you end up with a couple of slices you can't fit, you can cook them until crispy in the microwave. Allow the bacon to cook 20-25 minutes, or until crispy.

Drain bacon on a sheet lined with paper towels. Boost oven heat to 400 degrees. When cool enough to handle the strips, crumble and set aside.

Pour 1-2 Tb of the bacon fat from the baking sheet into a skillet of medium heat. Add the onions, and cook, stirring occasionally, until they just begin to color, about 10-15 minutes.

Beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Add the sour cream, and beat well to combine.

Stir in the onions, bacon, and cheddar to distribute evenly.

Turn the mixture into a 2 quart ovenproof baking dish, sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until bubbly and the top is just starting to brown.

Serve hot to warm with low carb tortilla chips. (Stack a couple tortillas, cut into 8ths with a pizza cutter, and set on a silicone or foil lined baking sheet. Spray with cooking spray and bake at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes, until crispy.)

*And don't throw out that bacon fat in the foil-lined sheet! Pour it into a sealable container and keep it in the fridge. Use some in your skillet to sauté a steak, chicken breast, or pork chops to make them super tasty, or melt it lightly and brush over your meat of choice on the grill. A Tb In your skillet when you cook pancakes makes them irresistibly tasty. Just add to your bacon fat pot in the fridge each time you make bacon. I'm never without it.

Deb's (dldickins) Ultimate Brownie. It's the absolute best out there. Chewy, fudgy and absolutely decadent. Non-LC'ers can never tell it isn't HC. And, it's a big plus for those of us who can't even look at polyD without getting sick, since most super fudgy brownie recipes get that texture from using that devil dust.

I couldn't figure out how to give a link to only that recipe within the Vitafiber thread, but this one will at least get you to the proper page. It's post #328, so scroll down. Bookmark it. Yeah, it's that good.

In the upper right corner, you'll see a post number - i.e., your post above this is #34. Click on that, which takes you right to the post you want, and then copy the URL and paste it here. Ta Da!!

That bacon dip sounds divine. Must try soon!

Oh, yeah! Another that is a staple in our house is jhoberer's pasta. My husband loves his pasta, and before finding this recipe, it was the biggest sticking point about getting him aboard the LC train. He's now a fervent convert. This recipe has rocked my LC world!

You'll find lots of variations in that thread, most of which I tried, but hers is the first, and is still the best. I sometimes roll it on a silicone sheet, cut it into short strips with a pizza cutter, and make dumplings out of it to serve with chicken fricassée.
