Nice and colorful breakfast this Easter morning!  AND, the nesting blue jay’s eggs are gorgeous.

Poached Egg, Sweet Potato, and Veggie Breakfast

1 slice turkey bacon, cooked
1 egg
1/2 cup fresh spinach
1/4 cup diced sweet red peppers
2 scallions, diced
1/2 cup leftover roasted sweet potato

Start the poaching water.  Directions for poaching the egg can be found here:

Sweet potato recipe is here:
https://locarbjabberwockey.wordpress.com/2013/06/22/roasted-chicken-thighs-with-sweet-potatoes/

Get the egg into the poaching water…

Add potatoes, scallions, and sweet red peppers to a non stick pan that has been lightly sprayed with olive oil (I have a Misto) over medium high heat.  Saute until potatoes are warm all the way through. At the same time you can toss the turkey bacon into the pan, it just needs to be browned.

By the time the egg is done poaching the potatoes, veggies and bacon should be done.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Low Carb Mini Pizzas ! July 14, 2013

Low Carb Pizza

We have an abundance of squash coming from the garden right now, what to do !  I started digging through Pinterest to see if anything looked good (honestly I am not a fan of squash, but my gardening hubby is).

So, I stumbled across a few promising recipes.  This one comes from Kalyn’s Kitchen.

The end product is pretty darned tasty….and for those of you missing pizza while low carbing, this might hit the spot.  I grilled my zucchinis, and had to store in the fridge while I waited for my cheese to defrost (you can buy mozzarella on sale and freeze – it does fairly well).

.

Low Carb Mini Pizzas

1 large squash, cut into 1/4″ thick rounds
Pizza Sauce (I used Ragu)
1 oz mushrooms, sliced into thin strips
1.5 oz shredded mozzarella
8 slices turky pepperoni
Kosher salt

Lay the zuke rounds on a baking pan, and sprinkle both sides with Kosher salt.  Let sit for about 30 minutes.  It’s amazing how much moisture you will extract.  Pat dry with a towel.

Light Barbeque, and set to high.  BBQ the zukes until you get nice grill marks, turn, do the same for the other side.  If your BBQ is super hot/dry, you can spritz the zukes with a little olive oil before placing on the grill.

Lay your grilled zukes out on a baking sheet, add the pizza sauce, mushrooms, pepperoni, and cheese to each mini round.  Broil for about 2 minutes – they are done when the cheese is bubbly and slightly brown.

Makes one serving, but can easily be adapted to make two entire sheet pans, AND, you can add YOUR favorite toppings.

Low Carb Shrimp Salad

I had this lunch three times this week.  It’s very quick (5 minutes to prep/cook), satisfying, and held me from 11:30 am to about 6:30 pm — No need for a mid-afternoon snack to tide me over to dinner with this one…

Super Easy Shrimp Salad

20 medium shrimp (mine were pre cooked/frozen)
1/2 an avocado, sliced
1 medium tomato, diced large
1 Tbsp. butter
Salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste

Defrost the shrimp in the microwave for about 45 seconds.  Meanwhile melt the butter over medium-high heat.

Drain off water from shrimp and sautee for about 3 minutes (adding salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste).

Shrimp are ready once the butter forms a nice crust on them.  Serve over tomato and avocado.

The Jabberwock has been off vacationing for the last 11 days, and is finally back home!  Four days of boat camping plus 7 days of houseboating did take a toll on my way of eating.  Read S’mores, chips, bagels, sandwiches ….the list goes on.  The good news is that the garden didn’t die off while we were gone, and the better half harvested some cute purple potatoes today and stunted red onions.

Skillet Potatoes.

Recipe is very simple…thinly slice the potatoes – I used a mandolin slicer.  Over medium heat melt 3 Tbsp. butter, add potatoes and thinly sliced onion.  Sprinkle with garlic powder, thyme leaves, and paprika.  Cover and cook for about 10 minutes.  Remove cover and turn potatoes.  Cook for another 10 minutes, sprinkle with a bit of Kosher salt and serve.
