Broccoli w/Cheese Meringue

Serves: 10,10

CarbsPerServing: no counts provided

Effort: Easy

Ingredients: ..

How to Prepare:

Steam broccoli til nearly done (tender but not mushy). Put it in a baking dish & salt to taste. You may want to put a little butter on it too if you want to.

In a small-to-medium mixing bowl, beat 2 egg whites with a mixer til it forms soft peaks. Fold in about 1/4 to 1/2 cup mayonnaise (depends how much broccoli you’re using) and 1-2 cups grated cheddar and/or swiss cheese. Mix that together gently (don’t w ant those egg whites to break down altogether) & spread it over the cooked broccoli in a baking dish. Bake uncovered in a preheated 400 degree oven until lightly golden brown (depends on how hot your over really is — usually about 5 to 10 minutes).

If you’re fixing this for a lot of broccoli (like for 6 people) you may want to use 3 egg whites.

Tip: room temperature eggs yield the most egg whites when you separate them from the yolks & beat up the highest.

This is also good on steamed asparagus.

 

Spiced Chicken Strips

CarbsPerServing: no counts provided

Effort: Easy Ingredients:

How to Prepare:

Debone chicken, and slice it into pieces no more than two fingers thick. Boil the chicken strips in oil or water, over medium heat, stirring constantly (if pressed for time or patience, fresh precooked or microwaved chicken will work almost as well). Drain the oil–into a can or another pan, not the drains! Melt butter in the pan, enough to cover the bottom thoroughly. Place the chicken strips into the pan, stirring every 2-3 minutes. Add finely chopped onions, parsley, garlic powder, salt and black pepper–or other spices–to taste. Stir every couple of minutes until the chicken is browned; remove from heat and serve. The carbohydrate content will vary depending upon the spices and amounts used. Caution!: Cut several pieces of chicken in half, to be sure it’s cooked all the way through–if it’s cooked, the meat should be white.
