Two more Atkins Diet Recipe Goodness

First a better bread recipe:

In a search for a good low carb bread alternative that I can make easily without a bread machine, I found this great recipe by Jennifer Eloff (http://www.sweety.com/). It’s best toasted, but also makes a mean french toast as well. It holds up well to being dunked as well as holding your sandwich together.

Fast Cheesebread (http://low-carb-news.blogspot.com/2010/01/fast-cheesebread.html)
1 cup ground almonds
2/3 cup gold flax meal
1/3 cup vital wheat gluten
1/3 cup vanilla whey protein
4 tsp baking powder
1 cup Shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup butter
2 eggs
1/2 cup heavy cream/water mixture

Mix Dry ingredients together in large bowl. Cut in the butter. In a separate dish, beat eggs and then add the heavy cream mixture. Stir egg/cream mixture into the dry ingredients just until mixed. Scrape into 8×8 well-greased baking pan.  Cook at 350 for 35-45 minutes until inserted knife comes out clean. Once done, let cool, and cut the bread into quarters. Each quarter is further cut into 3 slices.

Yield: 12 slices, 1 slice:

The second recipe is one of my kids’ fvorites – Low Carb Pot Sticker Patties

It was developed originally from a recipe on Linda’s Low Carb recipe site (http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/pot_sticke r_patties.html), which if you haven’t heard me brag up enough, let me do it again. The annotated recipes are simply the best! Without any further adieu, here’s the recipe:

HEATHER’S POTSTICKER PATTIES
Cabbage Mixture:
1.5 pounds green cabbage
1 small-medium onion, chopped,
2 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon granular Splenda
2 tablespoons oil

Meat Mixture:
2 pound ground pork
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs
5 green onions, minced optional
Dash hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Shred the cabbage in your food processor. To get really fine shreds, you can add the chopping blade as well. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large wok or skillet over medium heat. Add cabbage mixture ingredients to the skillet and fry until the cabbage is wilted, and begins to stick to the bottom of the pan. Remove the mixture from the heat.

Add the meat mixture ingredients in a large bowl. Mix with with the cabbage mixture until well-incorporated. Take 4-5 oz scoops of the mixture, and form rough patties with them. This should make roughly 14 patties. Cook in skillet or George Foreman Grill for about 3-4 minutes per side.
