I have been so stressed about what to make for dinner every night. It is getting a little easier, but maybe because everything I have made this far has come out of a package. It is so easy to go that route when all the labels are right there for me to look at. There isn't as much thinking about it. Tonight I really wanted to figure it out for real. Meaning actually make a family favorite recipe and figure out the carbs on my own. I picked a recipe and went with it. When I got all the carbs figured out I was totally surprised how low the carb count was.
My dad gave me a copy of a computer program that I can enter recipes and it will tell me what the nutritional facts are so I thought I would double check it. I was right! 8 carbs per serving! Really guys this is super good for me. I actually did it! And picked something that was really low for the Princess to eat! Maybe I can do this!
I wanted to share the recipe just in case anyone would like to try a low carb dinner that is easy and pretty good.
1 lb of ground beef
1 cup of onion chopped
1/2 tea. Salt
1 cup of cheese, grated
1/2 cup Bisquick
1 cup milk
Cook ground beef and onion, then drain. Add salt. Add hamburger mixture to greased pie pan. In another bowl, mix together Bisquick, milk, eggs and cheese. Pour over hamburger in pie plate. Sprinkle top with a little more cheese. Bake at 4oo degrees for 25 minutes.
Makes 8 total serving. 1 serving is 8 total carbs.
We served this with sugar free jell-o and green beans. For an entire dinner it was 12 carbs! (Que the tooting of my own horn)
Just thought it would be fun to share! Have a great day!
