This week, I tried a couple of new recipes. Here, for your perusing pleasure, are my peramulations, which hopefully won't provoke pain, on these palatable potlaches!
Rachel Ray's Stuffed Steak with Prosciutto and Spinach
I actually got this out of a cookbook with some of her lower carb recipes in which she didn't have the bread in the stuffing. It. Is. Outstanding. In the interests of not being a blogging jerk, I'm not copying the whole recipe over here, but you should click on the link. The whole bagging thing for inserting the stuffing didn't work for me, but I just used my hands and the wooden spoon and it worked fine. The ends come out looking a little messy, but I don't really care about that stuff. If I were serving to company, I'd be more careful I suppose. Though if you are eating at my house, you should just expect that presentation isn't much of a "thing". I'd recommend sharpening you knife before cutting to preserve the cool "look" and focusing on making sure the hole is large enough in the middle pieces of the roast....but overall, the flavor is OUTSTANDING. Huge huge win here.
I tried to make a version of lasagna without the noodles, using thin cut and roasted zucchini instead. I followed a recommendation for how to make one of these types of lasagna from SP...and it didn't have ricotta and it used premade tomato sauce. I thought it would be worth a try...and now I can say: Don't Bother. It's not that it's not fine, but that's all it is: fine. It's actually hard to make myself eat it all at lunch or dinner. I'll go back to my eggplant and ricotta version next time for sure.
Hearty Sausage Breakfast Casserole (Modified by me)
I will make this over and over and over and over. I've been making lots of these types of casseroles, but this one has hash browns and greek yogurt and somehow this makes it the greatest casserole ever. I love mushrooms and had bunch to use up, so I added quite a few. Pick whatever you lurrrrrve and add it, just don't forget the yogurt and the potatoes. EXCELLENT protein numbers (THIRTY ONE grams!!) and purty good on carbs (only 7.6g!). Love this.
That's the summary for this week's new recipes. Two big hits, one miss. Let me know if you try any modifications of any of these and find something YOU love too!
