Low Carb Vegetable Pig In A Poke

Vegetable Pig In A PokeThis is not much to look at but boy oh boy it sure is tasty.  Of course it is good for breakfast, especially if you have kids to feed, but many times I feel like eating breakfast for dinner.  Vegetable pig in a poke is pretty much a complete meal and so low in carbs you can “Pig” out on it. Last August when I returned to Ohio for my 50th (yes, that’s a big 50 and I am getting old) class reunion my hostess Karen made and served this to about 20 people.  Not being able to eat flour, I fixed myself a steak.  I did take one bite (only to be polite) and it was really good so…I kept it in the back of my mind thinking I might try it with Carbalose flour and heavy cream.  I  have enhanced it with vegetables.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.
