Low Carb Au Gratin Casserole Topping

Au Gratin Casserole ToppingThis au gratin casserole topping is a good alternative to fried onions on a green bean casserole or just about any other casserole or vegetable dish.

You will need Carbalose Flour Bread to make the crumbs and the uses are nearly infinite. You will find this in several recipes on the site.

What I do is make a recipe of the bread, grind the whole loaf, keep it frozen for use later and then every time I cut ends off a loaf, I throw them in with the crumbs and when I have enough I grind them into crumbs so…I always have them on hand. Your first loaf of bread will yield about 8 cups of crumbs.

Low Carb Carbalose Bread Stuffing

Carbalose Bread StuffingWhat to say.  This Carbalose Bread Stuffing is another way I use Carbalose Flour.  Not all that often, but the problem is that I know way too many recipes and it takes me a while to cycle through a lot of them, and I have to say, I should make it more often because it is so good and a great accompaniment to many meals. Please see Carbalose Flour Bread.

Carbalose Bread Stuffing
Print
Ingredients
  1. 8 oz. Dried Carbalose Bread Cubes (5½ -6 Cups)
  2. ¾ C Small Diced Celery
  3. ¾ C Small Diced Onion
  4. 1 C Water
  5. ½ C Butter
  6. 2 Beaten Eggs
  7. ¾ t Dried Sage
  8. ¾ t Poultry Seasoning
  9. ¾ t Chicken Base
  10. ¼ t Pepper
  11. More Water To Moisten
Instructions
  1. Put cup water and butter in skillet, heat, and add celery & onions. Cook on low until very soft then add seasonings.
  2. Cool slightly and add beaten eggs.
  3. Add 1-1½ cups warm water to celery onion mixture and pour all into dried bread cubes. Mix, let sit, and add water as needed until stuffing is moist.
  4. Butter glass baking pan and bake at 350 degrees until beginning to brown on top.
  5. 8 Servings
  6. 190 Calories, 6.5g Protein, 8.3g Carbs, 4.4g Fiber, 3.9g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. Low Carb Additions: sautéed mushrooms, oysters, spinach, sausage, pine nuts, almonds, sugar-free cranberries, and small diced Granny Smith apples.
  2. Your bread cubes do not need to be dried, but if they are, they soak up lots more flavor.
  3. How we eat this: I cut out the backbone of a chicken, butterfly it, butter a piece of foil, put the stuffing roughly in the shape of a heart, put the chicken on top of the stuffing, and bake it at 350 degrees for about 1½ hours and wahoo it’s so good. As the chicken cooks the juices and fat go into the stuffing.
  4. Needless to say this goes well under/with Cornish game hen.

Notes
  1. Nutritionals include bread crumbs and if you don't want or have the bread crumbs crushed pork skins are a great substitute.
  2. Any good shaved deli ham will serve in place of the proscuitto and it will of course alter the taste a bit.
  3. Any leftovers can be used for fabulous meatloaf sandwiches or portioned & frozen for further dinners.
  4. You can also opt to wrap the meatloaf in bacon cause bacon never hurts anything.

Low Carb Cherry Almond Bread Pudding

Cherry Almond Bread PuddingSomewhere long ago and far away I was dabbling in the kitchen (better dabbling than babbling) and just kind of came up with this recipe.  Cherries and almonds are one of those food marriages made in heaven so I thought I would run a Cherry Almond Bread Pudding it as a special dessert item in the restaurant and it was a hit.  People would come back in to have a cup of coffee and bread pudding and I didn’t have it.  So…I decided to put it on the menu permanently and it stayed as a customer favorite.  Here it is in its low carb form and I absolutely cannot tell any difference and since you never had my restaurant version you definitely won’t know either.

Bread pudding begs for a sauce…any sauce…please, just give me a sauce and this is the way I served it in the restaurant.  So simple…so good…just warm & drizzled with a little heavy cream or better yet Sweetened Condensed Milk

I don’t care how you cut it traditional bread pudding has never been low carb but just a half cup with Carbalose Flour Bread is terrific and even a cup is only 6.8g net carbs and after a filling dinner?…I doubt you could begin to eat a full cup of this.

This is one of my easier recipes to make and you will need Carbalose Flour Bread cubes for it.

All Things Carbalose

All Things CarbaloseWhen I started posting recipes I thought I would just put the recipe for Carbalose Flour Bread up and then realized I use the flour and the bread for so many things that I would just make the whole category All Things Carbalose and that use Carbalose Flour in one way or another.  I hadn’t realized there were so many until I started posting recipes.  This flour may be purchased at Netrition.com There are about 14 cups per 3 lb. bag so order accordingly.

I have found Carbalose to be a godsend for low carbers and diabetics like myself.  The problems with the flour as I see them are:  1.) that there have not been many recipes for it and you cannot get them from Tova Industries, 2.) for many people including myself, it tastes very bitter, (this bitterness is corrected for in the bread-hence for all its uses) and lastly 3.) it is relatively expensive. There are tons of recipes for CarbQuik but not for the flour itself and because of its cost, a legitimate low carb bakery would have a tough time selling bread for around 10.00 a loaf.  I know Heath Squier and the Julian Bakery used to get almost that much for a tiny loaf of high carb bread but those days are thankfully long gone.

So, the recipes listed below are still in the various and appropriate sections of all the low carb recipes but for convenience sake they are all listed here too.  All nutritionals are listed below the bread recipe as well as with all respective recipes.

I do not use Carbquik so please do not confuse the two products.

Once you start making at least the bread for sandwiches or french toast, you will probably keep it on hand for crumbs & cubes because as you have these in your freezer it is so easy to make some of the recipes on this site and you will probably easily come up with recipes of your own.

Of the many reasons people come to my site via Google search  1.) is for Julian Bakery and 2.) is for Carbalose Flour Bread and I have to say, with some pretty comical search terms.

Low Carb Carbalose Flour Cinnamon Walnut Rolls

Carbalose Flour Cinnamon Walnut RollsThere are thousands of recipes for cinnamon rolls on the internet and maybe only one or two made with Carbalose Flour.  I hope by the time you make these you find these Carbalose Flour Cinnamon Walnut Rolls are the best.

My all-time favorites from long ago and far away were the rich rum sticky buns from The New Basics cookbook by Julee Rosso & Sheila Lukins but alas…I can eat them no more.  To look at my copy of the book you would think it was 60 years old but really-I have only had it 25.

Carbalose Flour Cinnamon Walnut Rolls

Dough
  1. 1½ C Carbalose Flour
  2. 2 T Coconut Flour
  3. 2 T Golden Flaxseed Meal
  4. 2 T Refined Coconut Oil (plus 1 T For Oiling Pan)
  5. 2 T Gluten
  6. ½ t Salt
  7. ⅛ t Guar Gum
  8. ⅛ t Xanthan Gum
  9. 1 Large Beaten Egg (Reserve 1 T)
  10. ¼ C Warm Heavy Cream
  11. 12 Drops Liquid Sucralose
  12. ½ C Warm Water
  13. 1½ T Yeast
  14. 1 t Sugar
Filling
  1. 2 C Ground Walnuts (Reserve ¼ C)
  2. 2 t Cinnamon
  3. ½ C Sweetener Of Choice (I Use Just Like Sugar Baking)
  4. ½ C Soft Butter
Drizzle
  1. 1 ½ oz Cream Cheese
  2. 3 T Warm Heavy Cream
  3. 1½ t Vanilla Extract
  4. ¼ C Melted Butter
  5. 6 Drops Liquid Sucralose
Directions
  1. Put first 8 ingredients in processor.
  2. Bloom yeast with sugar in warm water for 10 minutes.
  3. Add Sucralose to top of bloomed yeast.
  4. Mix egg, reserve 1 T and then add cream.
  5. Start processor and add water & yeast and cream & egg mixtures and process for a minute or so.
  6. Carbalose flour is not sticky but eggs are so this time your dough might be a little sticky and as you are forming the rectangle to put into your pan it will then end up pretty much non-sticky.
  7. Since you will be rolling this into a rectangle, place dough in a small bread pan, cover with film and let rise about 30 minutes.
  8. Invert dough onto bench floured countertop (or your trusty Silpat) and roll out rectangle to about 12”x16”.
  9. Brush 2” egg wash around the perimeter of the dough.
  10. Mix nuts, cinnamon, & sweetener.
  11. Spread butter on dough, (if you have a small off-set spatula this works perfectly) this time leaving it about ½” around perimeter. Don’t cover all your egg wash as this is your “glue”.
  12. Sprinkle nut filling evenly on butter and roll making sure the bottom is tightly glued.
  13. If, after you roll your dough it is not 16” it will easily stretch and if you have any butter-sugar mixture get on the counter just sop you roll log in it and proceed. With seam down-cut log into 16 rolls about 1” wide.
  14. In an oiled 10x10 pan make 4 rows of four-making sure the tails are turned inward so they won’t unroll.
  15. Cover and rise 30-45 minutes. They will not rise too much.
  16. Put Rolls in 340 degree preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly.
  17. Put cream cheese in small bowl and beat. Add melted butter & vanilla and start adding the warm heavy cream a little at a time until it will “drizzle”.
  18. Pour drizzle all over top and sprinkle with remaining walnuts.
  19. Best served warm and if not warm then best just served. These rolls freeze well.
  20. 16 Servings
  21. 250 Calories, 5.6g Protein, 7.4g Carbs, 3.1g Fiber, 4.3g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. Although to my mind walnuts are traditional, pecans or a combination may be substituted for walnuts.

Low Carb Carbalose Flour Almond Raspberry Braid

  4. 2 T Refined Coconut Oil
  5. 1 T Gluten
  6. ½ t Salt

  9. 1 Large Egg Beaten (Reserve 2 T For Brushing)
  10. ¼ C Heavy Cream

  12. ½ C Warm Water
  13. 1 T Yeast
  14. 1 t Sugar

Drizzle
  1. 1 ½ oz Cream Cheese
  2. 3 T Warm Heavy Cream
  3. ½ t Vanilla Extract
  4. ¼ t Almond Extract
  5. 1 T Melted Butter
  6. 6-7 Drops Liquid Sucralose
  7. ¼ C Toasted Sliced Almonds
Directions
  1. Put first 8 ingredients in processor.
  2. Bloom yeast with sugar in warm water for 10 minutes.
  3. Add Sucralose to top of bloomed yeast.
  4. Add beaten egg and heavy cream to processor, start, add water & yeast and process at least one minute.
  5. Carbalose flour is not sticky but eggs are so this time your dough might be a little sticky and as you are forming the rectangle to put into your pan it will then end up pretty much non-sticky.
  6. Since you will be rolling this into a rectangle place dough in your bread pan, cover with film and let rise about 30 minutes.
  7. Invert dough onto bench floured countertop and roll out rectangle to about 10”x16”.
  8. Now, leaving center 4” uncut and beginning at the top, cut every ¾” down one side and correspondingly down the other side at about a 60 degree angle. I use a bench scraper for this because it is blunt but it will cut completely through the dough and if you have to use a knife be very careful not to cut your counter.
  9. Spread center 2 ½” with raspberry filling.
  10. Brush about 1” of the inside braid tips with your reserved beaten egg.
  11. Starting, again at the top, bring one braid across filling and cross it with one from the other side all the way down.
  12. OK, here comes the tricky part. If you have help great and most of the time we don’t so…you have to kind of scrunch it up and quickly transfer braid to parchment lined sheet pan. (Or better yet your Silpat) Once you have made the transfer you can re-position and stretch it.
  13. Brush the entire braid with egg wash, cover with film and let rise 15-20 minutes. It may not rise much and it will a little in the oven. You want pastry a bit denser and not bread-like.
  14. Put Braid in 340 degree preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely.
  15. Put cream cheese in small bowl and beat. Add melted butter & both extracts and start adding the warm heavy cream a little at a time until it will “drizzle” and then drizzle the top of your braid and sprinkle with toasted almonds. Voila-finished.
  16. 12 Servings
  17. 143 Calories, 5.7g Protein, 11.7g Carbs, 3.2g Fiber, 8.5g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. There are certainly other options for your filling. Any sugar free jam would work and any butter, sugar, and ground nut combo would work. So experiment and have fun. An orange glaze on a strawberry filled pastry comes to mind.
  2. If it’s summer and you have access to fresh raspberries the drizzle is wonderful on them too.
  3. **If you decide to use this braid recipe with a savory filling reduce Sucralose to 4 drops.

Low Carb Carbalose Flour Tortillas

Low Carb Carbalose Flour TortillasI don’t really have much to say about these tortillas except they are beyond delicious and terribly functional.  I have to say, because I am diabetic and know how to cook, that Carbalose flour has been a gift.  I am extremely carb sensitlve and this flour does virtually nothing to my blood sugar.  Since we are all different and especiallly if you are diabetic, then you need to check all the Carbalose recipes for yourself. Carbalose Flour may be purchased in 3 lb. bags from www.netrition.com

All my other Carbalose Recipes are listed at the bottom of the Carbalose Informational Page.

Carbalose Flour Tortillas
Print
Ingredients
  1. 4 Cups Carbalose Flour + More For Bench Flour
  2. ¼ t Guar Gum
  3. ¼ t Xanthan Gum
  4. 1½ t Salt
  5. ½ t Baking Powder (Not Really Needed)
  6. ½ C Lard (Or 1 Stick Butter If You Have To)
  7. 2 C Boiling Water
  8. 9 Drops Liquid *Sucralose
Instructions
  1. Place the flour in processor.
  2. Add dry ingredients and fat.
  3. Add Sucralose to water.
  4. Start processor and pour boiling water over the ingredients. Process for about a 1 minute. Dough should be very moist, very soft, and will not be sticky.
  5. Cut the dough into 14-2½ oz. pieces and form into little balls and flatten to a four inch disk with your fingers tips.
  6. Cover your flattened disks and let rest for 20 minutes.
  7. Apply bench flour and starting from the center roll out and then in until you form an oval. Lift up the oval and turn it 45 degrees, and roll it out again. Turn it 45 degrees again to the right until you have an 8” circle (or something resembling one. You want your tortillas as thin as you can get without them tearing.
  8. Place the tortilla on a hot (375-400 degree) griddle pan, or cast-iron skillet. It may or may not forms small bubbles on the upside of the tortilla. When they are just turning brown flip over the tortilla, and if it bubbles or inflates a bit-stick the tip of a knife in them.
  9. I just stack all 14 of these babies one on top of another as they come off the griddle and when I'm finished I wrap the whole stack with film, stick them in a 1 gallon freezer bag and freeze them. Unlike traditional tortillas they do NOT STICK TOGETHER and you can get them straight from the freezer one by one.
  10. 14 Servings
  11. 152 Calories, 9g Protein, 13.7g Carbs, 8.3g Fiber, 5.4g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. Please note the use of *Sucralose in each of the recipes using Carbalose is only to negate the bitter taste of the flour and DOES NOT make the recipe “sweet”.
  2. If you have a Silpat these can be rolled on it and you will not need the additional bench flour.
  3. Lard is the true secret to real tortillas. Not Crisco and definitely not the hydrogenated crap you can buy in you local grocery store-I’m talking about your own rendered lard which is actually quite easy to do yourself and if not it can be purchased on the internet. In your dreams you cannot imagine how good lard makes a tortilla. It is much better to use butter than either of the other two alternatives.
  4. Don’t forget, you can make your own low carb chips with these. Cut each tortilla into eight wedges, brush lightly with oil, sprinkle with a bit of salt and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. You of course can also fry them in oil and…yes this is what I do…in tallow. Oh my goodness.
  5. If you tear a tortilla when you are rolling it, just ball it up and start over.

Low Carb Stuffed Shrimp

Stuffed ShrimpI have had a lot of really good food in my life and this Stuffed Shrimp is in my top 5.  I was unable to eat it for several years until I came up with the Carbalose Flour Bread recipe and now I can finally have it again-YeeHaw.

You will need Carbalose Flour Bread  breadcrumbs and the recipe for Sauce Béarnaise.

Stuffed Shrimp
Print
Ingredients
  1. 1 Lb. Very Large Shrimp (Hopefully 16 Per Pound)
  2. 3 C Carbalose Flour Breadcrumbs
  3. ¼ C Grated Onions (I put mine is a small processor which will get them very small)
  4. ½ C Sour Cream
  5. ¼ C Melted Butter
  6. ½ t Tarragon
  7. ¼ t Thyme
  8. ¼ t Pepper
  9. ¼ t Salt
  10. 2 T Melted Butter
Directions
  1. Carefully peel shrimp trying not to lose the tail meat.
  2. Put bread crumbs in a bowl.
  3. Mix next 8 ingredients together and then mix well into bread crumbs.
  4. Count your shrimp making sure you have that many little flattened stuffing balls. Use about a tablespoon for each which will sit atop your shrimp.
  5. Foil line a pan and smear last 2 T of butter. I like to sprinkle a little salt, pepper, and garlic salt on the butter but it is not necessary. The garlic salt just adds a little something extra-a lagniappe if you will.
  6. Take the shrimp and make a circle tucking the tail inside if possible.
  7. Top each shrimp with a round puck of stuffing.
  8. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes and finish by browning the stuffing under the broiler.
  9. Serve topped with Sauce Béarnaise.

  3. ¼ C Coconut Flour
  4. ¼ C Golden Flaxseed Meal
  5. 1 t Salt
  6. ¼ t Guar Gum
  7. ¼ t Xanthan Gum
  8. 1¼ C Warm Water
  9. 1½ T Yeast
  10. 1 t Sugar
  11. 7 Drops Liquid Sucralose*
  12. ½ C Olive Oil
  13. 2 t Minced Garlic
  14. 1 t Dried Basil
  15. 1 t Dried Rosemary
  16. ½ t Dried Thyme
  17. ½ t Dried Oregano
  18. ¼ t Salt
  19. ¼ t Pepper
Instructions
  1. Bloom yeast with sugar in 1 cup warm water for 10 minutes.
  2. Put first 7 ingredients in processor and turn on just to blend.
  3. Mix olive oil, spices, garlic, salt & pepper and heat on low 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add ½ olive oil mixture to dry ingredients and pulse machine several times.
  5. Add liquid Sucralose to bloomed yeast and with machine running add to dry ingredients.
  6. Run processor for at least a minute and probably a little longer adding any additional water as needed-this should be about ¼ C more. You want to make sure there is enough water. Dough should have a loose consistency and will not be sticky on your hands. At this point the dough should have the same look and feel of regular bread.
  7. Form into 2 balls, put in un-greased bowls and cover with film for about 30 minutes until doubled.
  8. Turn out dough onto lightly floured counter and keeping their shapes, roll into big 1 ½” thick circles and put onto sheet pan lined with parchment paper, or better yet your Silpat.
  9. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  10. Drizzle and brush rest of olive oil mixture all over both tops.
  11. Let rise 15-20 minutes. Do not over proof as it will raise more in the oven and Focaccia is a relatively flat bread. Using your finger tips make “dimples” all over dough.
  12. Bake 15-20 minutes or until light golden brown.
  13. Cut each round into 8 traditional “pie wedges”.

Notes
  1. Please note the use *Sucralose in each of the recipes using Carbalose is only to negate the bitter taste of the flour and DOES NOT make the recipe “sweet”.
  2. You may also add black, green, or kalamata olives, thin slices of fresh tomato, slivered onions, & maybe a little parmesan or mozzarella cheese and...this already seems suspiciously like pizza. Um Yum-Oh Boy.
  3. You do not necessarily need to make this into rounds as it can be formed into any shape you wish and no matter the shape, it is terrific dipped in olive oil.

Low Carb Carbalose Flour Bread

Carbalose Flour BreadAs I said at the beginning of the Julian Bakery Page, like all true diabetics I went on the internet trying to find a “recipe” for low carb bread.  I never did find that recipe but the quest led me to do this website and is the culmination of this Carbalose Flour Bread.  Who’d have guessed that looking for a silly bread recipe would also catch a crook.

DO NOT USE CARBQUIK-IT WILL NOT WORK.

Carbalose Flour BreadCarbalose Flour BreadCarbalose Flour BreadIt took me many, many tries to get this recipe just right and I paid nearly $700.00 to have it tested through Exova Laboratories so I know all the figures are correct.

If you think you can’t live without bread then here you go. This bread is good, good, good.

  • Equipment Needed:
  • Large Cuisinart or other Large Food Processor
  • Electric Knife
  • Small Cutting Board
  • 4½” x 8½” x 3″ Small Glass Loaf Pan
  • If you are use a larger loaf pan then your bread will be longer, not rise as high, and will be wider that the picture above.
  • Use this recipe if you have a Standard 4″x8″ Loaf Pan

Martha’s Picture

If you do not have an electric knife you will probably not get the slice counts.  This of course is OK but your nutritionals would vary slightly and accordingly.

This recipe may or may not work in a bread machine.  I personally do not have one so I am unable to test it.

 

Use for Stuffed Strawberry Cream Cheese French Toast and the dough may also be used for rolls, buns, individual baguettes, and whatever else you might imagine.  Also makes great bread crumbs and yes, even Basic Pizza Crust.  A roll, hot out of the oven?  Slathered with butter?  Heavenly.

For many other Carbalose Flour recipes please see All Things Carbalose informational page.

If you will just make 3 loaves of this, one for bread, one for croutons, and one for crumbs, I doubt you will ever want to be without them.

  • Carbalose Flour may be purchased in 3 lb. bags from www.netrition.com
  • Complete Nutritionals for rolls, buns, baguettes, cubes and crumbs are below recipe.

The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread
Print
Ingredients
  1. 2¼ C Carbalose Flour
  2. ¼ C Wheat Gluten
  3. ¼ C Coconut Flour
  4. 1 t Salt
  5. ¼ t Guar Gum
  6. ¼ t Xanthan Gum
  7. ¼ C Golden Flaxseed Meal***
  8. ¼ C Warm Water***
  9. 3 T+1 t Coconut Oil
  10. 1 C Water + (Only If Needed)
  11. 1½ T Yeast
  12. 1 t Sugar
  13. 7 Drops Liquid Sucralose*
Instructions
  1. Bloom yeast & sugar in 1 cup warm water for 10 minutes or until foamy.
  2. Add flaxseed to ¼ C warm water for 10 minutes. (It will become quite gelatinous)
  3. Put first 6 ingredients in processor and pulse to blend.
  4. Add 3 T melted coconut oil and pulse to blend.
  5. Add flaxseed mixture to dry ingredients and pulse to blend.
  6. Add liquid Sucralose to top of bloomed yeast and with machine running add to dry ingredients.
  7. Run processor for at least a minute and probably a little longer adding any additional water as needed 1 T at a time.
  8. You want to make sure there is enough water. Dough should hold together, have a loose consistency and should not be sticky on your hands. At this point the dough should have the same look and feel of regular bread.
  9. Form into a ball and put into un-greased bowl and cover with film for about 20-25-30 minutes or until slightly less than doubled. If over-proofed it will not rise well the second time and will more than likely "fall", leaving a less that desirable looking loaf.
  10. Preheat oven to 340 degrees.
  11. Take dough out of bowl and knead (very gently) until you are sure ALL air pockets are out.
  12. Form gently into loaf, put into greased (remaining 1 t coconut oil) pan, very loosely cover with film and let rise for 25-30 minutes. Do not over proof as it will raise a little more in the oven.
  13. Bake 45 minutes.
  14. Rest the bread in the pan at least 10 minutes.
  15. Make sure bread sides are not sticking to pan, remove gently, put on wire rack, and cool completely.
  16. Slice bread with an electric knife.

Notes
  1. Please note the use of *Sucralose in each of the recipes using Carbalose is only to negate the bitter taste of the flour and DOES NOT make the recipe “sweet”.
  2. Slice size is equivalent to a normal slice of pretty much any other normal bread.
  3. ** I plugged all the ingredients (except the Carbalose Flour) into a food database to get the figures below and added them to the Carbalose figures to get my Totals Per Loaf.
  4. ***The only difference between this recipe and the first one is soaking the flaxseed in warm water. It turns into a gelatinous mixture that seems, for some reason, to give the bread better structure, consistency & with less chance of “holes” in the bread. I have now tried this several times and it absolutely does work.
  5. If at any time after the loaf is form and touched, the indentation will remain even after baking and the same thing when taking out of the pan until the loaf in completely cooled. This is the reason I keep using the word gently.
  6. Flaxseed in warm water was suggested by Jeff L and my hat goes off to him.

Low Carb Creamed Spinach

Low Carb Creamed SpinachMy husband and I, his brothers, their wives, and sister all got together for a week and rented a house on the spectacular Oregon Coast a couple of years ago. As part of “our night to fix dinner” for everyone, this Creamed Spinach one of the vegetables I prepared.  The comment I remember Kent making was “I think this may be the best use of spinach I have ever tasted”.  Who could ask for anything more?  They knew I was diabetic and probably expected “whatever”  but we wowed ’em good.

I have given the recipe below using Au Gratin Casserole Topping but it is super with the crumbled bacon as shown.

Creamed Spinach
Print
Ingredients
  1. 16 Oz Defrosted Frozen Spinach
  2. ½ C Small Diced Onions
  3. 1 T Butter
  4. ½ C Heavy Cream
  5. 2 Oz. Grated Gruyere Cheese
  6. ¼ t Salt
  7. ⅛ t Pepper
  8. ¾ C Carbalose Flour Bread Crumbs
  9. 2 T Parmesan Cheese
  10. 1 T Melted Butter
Instructions
  1. Lightly squeeze spinach to release a little water but do not squeeze dry and put in mixing bowl.
  2. Saute onions in 1 T butter, add to spinach and mix in grated cheese, salt & pepper.
  3. Heat heavy cream and blend into spinach mixture.
  4. Mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, with melted butter and top spinach.
  5. Put into 325 degree oven until crumbs are nicely browned.
  6. Serves 6
  7. 199 Calories, 7 Protein, 6 Carbs, 3.9g Fiber, 2.1g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. Another way (the way I do it) is to heat spinach mixture in the microwave, top it with the crumbs and put it into a 375 degree oven until browned. It saves a lot of time & electricity.
  2. You could also use shallots in place of the onions.
  3. As a variation for breakfast, omit the bread crumbs, add the Parmesan cheese directly to the spinach and put a fried egg on top. If you have leftovers so what if the crumbs are there-top with an egg and chow down baby.
  4. Another use: Put oysters under crumbs and top with hollandaise sauce for Oysters Rockefeller.
  5. Sprinkle with bacon as shown.
  6. Mix bacon into spinach mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
