- Sausage Gravy
1 pound sausage (I used some I had frozen which was All Natural without any MSG or other preservatives)
1/4-1/2 cup flour (I use rice)
4 cups milk
Brown sausage in large skillet. Add flour and stir. Gradually add milk and whisk mixture. Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly.
- Applesauce Blueberry Walnut Oatmeal Muffins
1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour (I use Rice)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup fat-free milk
3 tablespoons olive or coconut oil
1 egg white
1 cup blueberries
1 cup chopped walnuts, pecans, or other nut
1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter, melted
In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In another bowl, combine the applesauce, milk, oil and egg white. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Gently fold in blueberries and walnuts. Fill muffin cup liners coated three-fourths full.
Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over batter. Bake at 400° for 16-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Yield: 10 muffins.
- Mashed Cauliflower
Cook cauliflower until very tender. Drain. Mash with mixer. Add butter, salt, and pepper to taste. Great low carb alternative to Mashed Potatoes!
- White Chili (I invented this recipe today because I did not like the ones in my cookbook)
2 pounds chicken, cubed
2 15 oz. cans Cannellini beans, navy beans, or great northern beans
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green chili peppers
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 tbs. salt
1 tsp. oregano
2 quarts water (may need more)
Place all ingredients in a crockpot. Make sure there is enough water to adequately cover the chicken and other ingredients.)
Equal part dates and equal part nuts (pecans, walnuts, and almonds work great!). Combine in a food processor until ball forms. Flatten into bars. Eat raw or cook at 400 until desired crispness. Store extras individually wrapped in wax paper in freezer.
- Corndog muffins- Use regular cornmeal muffin recipe. Add chopped hotdogs into batter before pouring into muffin liners! Children will love these!
- Fried Oatmeal Patties- Take left over oatmeal and stir in raisins, chopped apples, chopped nuts, etc. Fry in a little bit of oil or butter and pour maple syrup over the top! Delicious! They are also great with homemade jelly!
