Chicken / BACON crusted Chicken breast
« on: December 09, 2020, 08:02:56 PM »
One of my favorite chicken recipes.  Chicken coated with bacon bits.


4 skinless or skinned breast
  mayo or egg wash as a binder
8 oz bacon bits ground fine
S&P to taste

1. Brine chicken for 12 to 24 hrs in a basic brine
2. Dry chicken well the dip in egg wash or slather with mayo
3. Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with Pam or other non stick spray
4. Bake at 450 for 15 mins and ck IT of breast

Other ways to do this is add parmesan chips crushed fine to the bacon bits before coating.

This cook I used egg wash not mayo

Pork / Salisbury Pork Chops
« on: December 09, 2020, 03:18:24 PM »
Kimmie found this recipe so I thought I'd give it a shot.

Really good, similer to salisbury steak yet only 2 carbs per chop.


4 Pork Chops
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1   tsp Italian seasoning
1   tsp onion powder

Butter/Garlic sauce:

3 Tbs Butter
4 Cloves Garlic
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 Tbs lemon juice (optional)

1..Season chops with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and onion powder.

2.. Melt butter in pan and add cloves of garlic till they are translucent

3.. Add the chops and cook till you have a crust on both sides

4.. Pour broth, lemon juice and cream over the chops and move them around to mix up the sauce. REDUCE heat and let the sauce thicken till gravy like and they are ready to serve.   

Beef / Sunday roast beef
« on: November 16, 2020, 02:53:48 PM »
I was at Sam's club Saturday morning and ran across a beautiful roast just begging to be smoked then seared at 600+ temp on the SRG.

I trimed the roast then placed it in a gal size bag with 1 can beef broth, 1/4 can water and 2 tsp's garlic powder

Let it sit over night turning every few hours.  Removed and dried, rubbed with oil & added a little salt, pepper and just a little more garlic powder and a little rosemary. 

Placed in my homebuilt SRG pellet grill and smoked till IT of 135 was reached, then placed on another SRG that had been warming up to a temp of 600+.   

Once the roast has a good sear I placed in a pan with the brine I used to before (after I boiled it and strained it) plus one more can of beef broth so I could make Au Jus.

let it sit on top of the SRG grate for 45 mins then removed to slice up for sammies!   

Chicken / Lower Carb BBQ sauce at WalMart
« on: November 09, 2020, 08:00:46 PM »
Was at WalMart and found this sauce thought I would give it a try.

It's not bad, not real sweet but not sour either so it's a good mix for those looking for lower carb sauce

I cooked these on the SRG with hickory pellets smoking away!!

Appetizers / Low Carb Fritos (SORTA)
« on: November 09, 2020, 02:30:29 PM »
Tailgating is my game said this about my low carb Deritos "Looks good Tommy now if you can do a low carb FRITOS...."

Well I gave it a shot just to see :)

Here is my first try, not bad but not real Fritos either.  BUT, for a crisp chip that can be used to dip cheese or even add to a taco salad they are perfect.

Taste is very close to those chips/fried noodles you use for soups from a chinese resturant   

Baking / Here is another type of hotdog/sausage wrap
« on: November 04, 2020, 03:07:20 PM »
Here is another type of hotdog/sausage wrap

These were hot Conecuh sausage but hotdogs work just fine   You just need to make sure sausage is cooked through before you wrap to make sure they are cooked through 

1 cup almond flour
1 cup mozzarella cheese
2 tsp psyllium husk fiber
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/4 pack of yeast
1/3 warm water (activate yeast)
pinch salt
1/2 Tbs of whole wheat flour (use at second mix)

Mix all together but cheese. Form a dough ball let it rise 1 hr then melt cheese in a bow and combine the dough ball and cheese till you have another dough ball, then dust with wheat flour.  Let rise another hour then cut into strips and wrap hot dogs or precooked sausage.

Bake on a silicone sheet (non stick) at 350 for 15 mins or until golden brown   

Low-Carb Products & Ingredients / Low carb Doritos I DID IT!!!
« on: October 30, 2020, 01:20:09 PM »
Made these from Lavish bread and powdered cheese

Lavish bread can be bought at Wal mart but the powder cheese I found at a local store but sure you can find it on the net

Anyway I cut the lavish bread to shape and lightly fried then drain oil and coated with powder cheese mix with onion powder, garlic powder and salt to taste 

Really close to Doritos

Kimmie has me painting bottles for her to make stuff

Found that a Lazy Susan works best for painting bottles.  Just spin it a little and paint works great!
RG started working with is better half on hobbies and they make some really nice stuff.

NOW Kimmie has me painting bottles for her to make stuff

Appetizers / My take on low carb Doritos
« on: September 09, 2020, 12:14:03 PM »
Made these last night.  I took lavish bread cut to the size I wanted then baked.  After they were crispy i spritz with PAM oil and dropped into a bowl of cheese powder with a little onion and garlic powder.  These were really good, a good sub for high carb corn chips! 

Found the cheese powder at a spice shop    Ranch powder next!

Baking / Sealing lavish bread after stuffing
« on: August 17, 2020, 02:04:59 PM »
I wanted to see if I could "Glue" the edges of the lavish bread down with egg and keep any filling inside and here is the first try at a large cook.   

I did this a few weeks back but it was a small piece and not stuffed as much.

For this cook I used two sheets lavish bread, cheese and meat then sealed it with one egg beaten and brushed on.

Now, the main part to keeping it sealed is to let the egg sit for about 10 mins aftyer you brush it on and lay the two piece together and you may need to press a few times to get it to seal.

I would recomend using foil under it till ready to bake because there will be some egg that comes out and will get on the surface your working on.  If you decide to bake it on foil I recomend you spraying PAM on the new foil so the egg does not stick to the foil and causes a mess. 

Please don't ask why I know this! ;) 

Sorry no cut pictuers of the finished bread stuffed and cut

Desserts / Another try at sopaipillias
« on: August 17, 2020, 01:31:48 PM »
After the first try at something sweet with lavish bread I decided to try something else.
I have had these honey crystals in my stash for sometime and have looking to use them.

This gace it a honey taste without all the carbs!  You can find it at Wal Mart

The carb count is 3 carbs per teaspoon and believe it or not it only took 1 teaspoon to
flavor the sheet of bread along with one packet of Pyure sweetner

Baking times are the same 3 to 4 mins at 350 temp

Desserts / Low carb sopaipillias (sorta)
« on: August 14, 2020, 03:57:38 PM »
After I made the crackers I needed something sweet so I added cinnamon and Cliff's sugar replacement mix to some and baked.  Tasted really good sorta like mexican sopaipillias

Kimmie liked them so win win for me ;)

Mix is 3/4 cup Erythritol (I use NOW brand) and 1/4 teaspoon of Stevia (Better Stevia extract)
use just like sugar.  Good stuff
