Totally channeling my inner Italian! If I had one, but sadly I only have an inner hillbilly/redneck. I reckon I ain’t never! Short and sweet today… some favorite recipitas from the past few weeks!
This is my new favorite breakfast invention. I’m serious right now! It’s a modified version of a breakfast burrito eaten flat because then it feels like I’m eating more and it makes me convulse with excitement! The recipe:
– An 80-calorie fiber Maya tortilla
– Half of an Ore Ida hashbrown patty, cut up
– Bean mixture (black beans, red peppers, and salsa) cooked in the same pan as the egg
– An egg (must be cooked hard and crusty… sue me… )
– Cheese (optional)
The key is to cook your bean mixture with the salsa and the red peppers (and you can probably add any other veggie-tables you want) in the same pan with the egg. YUM!! I might have to have it again next week! Warning: May become addicting… Costa Vida agrees!
That ain’t a pretty picture (redneck holla, y’all), but it was so gosh durn easy to make this soup, I just had to let y’all in on the secret. This is one of those dump ingredients into a crockpot and fuhgettaboutit recipes I so enjoy. Potato Soup never was easier!
– One 30-ounce bag frozen hashbrowns (I used Ore Ida Country Style)
– Three 14-ounce cans of vegetable broth (reduced sodium) or chicken broth
– 1 can cream of celery soup (or cream of chicken)
– 1/2 cup chopped onion
– 1/4 tsp. black pepper
– 8-ounce package cream cheese (do not use fat free, it won’t melt!)
In a crockpot, combine everything EXCEPT for the cream cheese. Cook for 6-8 hours on low heat. About 1 hour before serving, add cream cheese and keep heated until thoroughly melted. Serve with cheese, sour cream, bacon bits, green onions, or whatever else you think would be good! My recipe was about 250 calories per serving when I broke it up into 7 good-sized servings.
Next time I make this I’m going to throw in some random vegetables and make it potato-vegetable soup!
TASTEE! Possibly a good time to log your food whilst punching me in the face for your cardio session? Why yes… I think I will! I got in my lunch hour walk yesterday… it was a glorious escape into the fresh air because I then spent the rest of the day/night glued to my computer due to work and homework… 88 hours worth… at least (coughcoughgiveortake70hours).
Question of the Day: What is your favorite go-to breakfast? Day 2… what did you do to for points in NO MORE FATMAS yesterday?
PS- News Flash half of the nation that is unhappy today… I just got word from Canada… they don’t want anyone from the US. Stay put and carry on… respectfully.
