So I'm back hard on the Low Carb eating this week. Thankfully after eating like there was "NO TOMORROW" over the past 2 weekends (I seem to deem weekends for crazy off the chart eating) I haven't gained any weight back.
So far I'm down 13 lbs...that's almost 1 stone for you European peeps. (wink)
This week I looked up some Low Carb stuff and this is what is on the menu for the week.
Tonight is Cheeseburger Casserole...haven't tried it....so I can't comment on taste...
2 pounds ground beef
5 strips bacon, chopped
16 ounces frozen cauliflower
Salt and pepper, to taste
Pinch garlic powder
8 ounce cheddar cheese, shredded
Brown the hamburger and bacon together; drain the fat. Add the salt, pepper, garlic powder, egg and 3/4 of the cheese. Meanwhile, cook the cauliflower until very tender. Mash and season with salt and pepper and a little butter. Put the cauliflower in a greased 2-quart casserole dish. Spread the meat mixture over the cauliflower and top with the remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350º for 35 minutes, until hot and bubbly.
Makes 6 servings

There was a side note from the person who posted the recipe...I think I'll take her advice
**This tasted pretty good, but I think it might be better to put the meat on the bottom and top with the cauliflower and cheese. I wasn't too crazy about it at first, but I grew to like it the more I ate it.
What's on your menu this week? Any Low carb recipes you love? Pass them on.
And as for yesterday's post...You're right! I CAN CAN!!
