LOADED Burger -- low carb living at it's BEST!!
Lean ground beef
1 packet of dry onion soup mix
Worcestershire sauce (as much or little to your liking)
Slicing tomato
Romaine lettuce
Spicy chipotle sauce
American or cheese of choice
Sliced mushrooms and onions
1 TBSP garlic oil

Mix ground beef with onion soup mix and worcestershire sauce. Form into patties or sliders (as my little one prefers slider size burgers).
Sauté mushrooms and onions in garlic oil (could use olive oil as well) -- set aside. Slice up avocados, tomatoes and lettuce.
Now build your castle of a monstrous burger with NO bun -- trust me this was MORE than filling!! The chipotle sauce gives it a nice kick and minimal carbs (>1 gm per serving), better than ketchup!

This honey cornbread is tender and moist, while slightly crisp on the exterior, thanks to the cast iron skillet! Simply amazing fresh out of the oven. Perfect with chili, soups, stews, or BBQ!
From: Chew Out Loud
Recipe type: side, bread
Serves: 6-8

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup all purpose flour
1 TB baking powder
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp table salt
1 cup whole milk
2 large eggs, room temp
6 TB salted butter, melted
⅓ cup real honey
2 tsp real vanilla extract
additional butter for drizzling or serving


Preheat oven to 375F, with rack on lower-middle position. Grease your cast iron skillet and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Whisk together well.
In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, butter, honey, and vanilla. Gently fold wet and dry ingredients together until just incorporated; do not over-mix or over work the batter.
Pour batter into greased cast iron skillet and bake 20-30 minutes until golden brown (bake time will depend on size of your skillet.) If top browns too quickly, cover loosely with foil and continue baking. Be sure to start checking for doneness after 20 minutes. Cornbread is done when toothpick inserted in center has a couple of tender crumbs attached to it. Not completely clean, or it might turn out dry.
Drizzle melted butter over the top, allowing it to soak into the cornbread, and serve while warm. Or serve with pats of softened butter on top.
* For muffins, bake 13-15 minutes in lined muffin tins, just until toothpick comes out with tender crumbs attached.
