With Mardi Gras in the air..why not try and celebrate ..low carb style? When I was trying these out..I admit..I was skeptical. I didn't think I had enough sauce mixture to hold them together. But..no worries..they worked out great.

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 tablespoons heavy cream
1/3 cup Erythritol..or whatever sweetener you have on hand
1/4 tsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup Pecans
First you need to toast your pecans. I did my in the oven on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees..about 8-10 minutes. You will be able to smell them slightly. Watch them. Just enough to bring out the oils.
Once you have those going..
In a medium sauce pan combine 4 of  the tablespoons butter, the sweetener, and the cream over medium heat. Stir and once the sweetener has dissolved and the vanilla and salt and  cook until a nice golden color. Remove from heat add the last tablespoon butter and pecans. Stir and make little piles in a wax paper covered sheet. Pop them in the fridge and wait until they hardened up. And...

Before I tell you all the layers...lets all say..MEAT LOVERS DREAM and FOOD COMA! Now that being said..there really isn't a recipe for this..just layer what ever your inner breakfast soul is recommending..or whatever you have in the fridge 

I first started by cooking my burger patty..in butter..seasoned with s&p and garlic powder. Then while that was cooking I sliced up a brat and put that in the same pan to cook beside it. In the meantime I got out a seperate pan and started to cook my egg slowly. I just want it over easy..I LOVE the runny yoke oozing down my burger. When everything is almost cooked I added a small amount if crumbled up sausage in the main pan to cook up. Now..to assemble. Keep the burger cooking on low...add a slice of cheese..I used Colby jack. Then I added the egg..then topped it with a slice of American cheese then topped it with the sausage pieces. Then....I mixed a little mayo with sugar free syrup...and put a dollop of that on top. Salty, sweet and savory. Yumm!!!

Enjoy ..I know you will

Baked Feta Eggs in Tomato Sauce

This is one of the easiest and most delicious dishes. I made it as a dinner with a small salad. Of course you can make this for breakfast and add some bacon or sausage. Plus very easy to double. So tasty!

8 oz can of tomato sauce
5 -6 eggs
Feta cheese
Fresh clipped parsley
Salt and pepper

I used a small baking dish and sprayed with cooking spray. Add the sauce all around the dish. Crack each egg in dish carefully going around the casserole dish so they don't break. It's ok if they touch.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sprinkle cheese over top evenly to your liking. Sprinkle chopped parsley over top. Cook at 400 degrees for about 17 min.

Well it's been some time since I have posted recipe. Sorry...but summer takes over our lives here in the Connelly household. Now fall is my favorite time of year...so I will be back with lots of yummy recipes to share with you.
So anyway, we know that we can make sloppy joes fast in a pan..but it tastes sooo much better when it has had time to simmer and all the flavors blend..hence why I LOVE my crockpot. I made this batch up while I was making breakfast. It's cold and very windy here today and my husband and I went out to a couple of late in the season garage sales after breakfast. When we came home it was a blessing to have this warm and tasty crockpot lunch waiting on us.

Crockpot Sloppy Joes

2 pounds of ground beef (I did use some lean ground beef I got on "clearance" at the store..so I didn't have to drain it)
1 small onion
2 garlic cloves-minced
1 tablespoon butter
1 8oz Rotel tomato sauce(it's a hint spicy..but you can use the "norm" and just add a dash of hot sauce)
1/2 cup of ketchup
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons Splenda (or whatever sweetener you like)

Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the onion and garlic until softened.
Turn heat up to medium high and add the ground beef, salt, pepper, cumin and chili powder. Cook until beef is no longer pink.
Transfer the mixture to your crock pot. Stir in the Splenda, tomato sauce and ketchup.
Cover. Cook on Low for 3-4 hours
Serve over a slice of low carb bread...and we topped it with a  little shredded cheese -yum
