Eggs on the Go!

I’m constantly looking for recipes for my low carb diet.  I was really excited when I found this idea that is easy to make AND a great time-saver!!

You can make about a week’s worth of eggs at one time using this recipe. I’m eating these for my mid-morning snack, but you can also eat it for breakfast or at some other time.

I worry about leftovers going bad, so I didn’t make all twelve eggs, but I think these should last about a week.  Although, if it smells bad, don’t eat it!! I figure it will be about three days before they’re all eaten.

 

Ingredients:
Eggs
Pre-cooked sausage
Cheese
Jalapenos

**You can add other ingredients that you like, such as spinach, mushrooms, onions, etc.  These are the things I like!

Directions:
Spray pam on a muffin pan.  Add egg, sausage, cheese and jalapeños.  Put in oven at 350 for about 15 minutes.  Pull out of the oven and put them in your belly or in a tupperware for future meals on the go!

Jalapeño Sausage Balls

This is a year of creating new Christmas traditions!! My new German Shepherd puppy, Kaizer, finally has all of his shots and is able to go to places that other dogs go.  First stop on Christmas morning was to take him to the Katy Trail for a walk.  While we were out, we noticed that the Katy Trail Ice House had the fire pits going, so after our walk, we went and warmed up by the fire.  I’m not sure if they were open on Christmas day, but they were nice enough to come build a fire and leave water for all the people who exercise on the trail.  Kaiser absolutely loved being out there and greeting all the other dogs.  We have hereby renamed the Katy Trail to the Kaizer Trail and the Katy Trail Ice House is now the Kaizer Trail Ice House.

After the walk on the Katy Trail, we went home and made Jalapeño Sausage Balls.  They were so delicious and will be how we start off all of our future Christmas mornings!! They are SO easy to make and they are SOOOOO good!! I wasn’t sure I’d like the jalapeño in them, so I made half with peppers and half without. From now on I will make them ALL with the jalapeños!!

2 Cups of Bisquick
1 Cup of Cheese
1 lb of browned sausage (I prefer the Hot)
Diced Jalapeños to taste

Combined the ingredients until all the Bisquick is mixed together and there is no dry flour. Roll the mixture in to small balls and put on a cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for 20 – 25 minutes until brown.

Jalapeño Spinach Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Not only was this a long weekend and Easter Weekend, it was also the first Monday of the month, which means Canton Trade Days was going on this weekend.  I was looking on Facebook and saw a notice reminding me about the events in Canton and decided to take an impromptu trip out there to see what they had.  I was so excited when I found some fun flip flop sandals for myself.  They had a really good deal in one of the booths to buy two and get the third pair for a reduced rate.  Since I really only liked two of the pairs they had, I bought the third pair for my sister.  I think my favorites were the ones that I got her, but they didn’t have that style in my size.  I’ve already worn both pairs I bought two times, and my sister wore hers for Easter brunch, so I’d say the trip to Canton was a success!!

These aren’t the ones I bought my sister, but they are very similar.

I saw a stuffed chicken on pinterest and even though it looked a little fancy for my cooking skills, I decided to give it a try.  It really was an easy recipe and I have to say one of the best things I’ve made. I’m pretty sure it’s all the cheese that is in the stuffing that made it taste so good.  The only advice I have is to remember to take the toothpick out when it’s done cooking.  I learned that one the hard way!!

Ingredients:

Chicken breasts
Block of Cream Cheese
Cheddar Jack Cheese
Spinach
2 Jalapeños
Garlic
Lemon Pepper
Paprika

I didn’t put any amounts because I just put in the amounts I liked. I only used 2 Jalapeños and I just put a spoonful of minced garlic that was already preminced from the grocery store.

Cut the jalapeños in to small pieces.  I cut out all the seeds first.  You can leave a few in if you like it kind of spicy.DSCN0908
Sautee the jalapeños and garlic in olive oil.  This was way too much olive oil and I had to drain it. DSCN0909
Add Spinach to the sauteed jalapeños and garlic.DSCN0911

Put cream cheese, cheese and sautéed spinach jalapeno mix in a bowl and mix it up.

It will look something like this.  This is what you stuff inside the chicken.DSCN0913
Cut the chicken in half like a pocket.  Do not cut all the way through.

DSCN0914
Stuff the chicken and poke a toothpick through it to cook it through.
DSCN0915
Top off the chicken with lemon pepper and paprika

Cook in the oven on 375 for about 45 minutes or until cooked through.

Again, DON’T FORGET to take out the toothpicks!!!!!
