psi, i think that recipe is one of the best i've heard about in a long time. i have the flu and you even got my belly growling away and away, .
i'm printing this right now. i think my Dad, who is in a perpetual contest with me over who is the better cook, will even luv this.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-

Seriously, I have no idea what your idea of a low carb recipe is. Personally I believe in a 40% carb, 30% protein, and 30% fat balance, but I have some recipes that are even lower in carbs than that.

Here is one of my favorites that I developed for a lady friend who was on South Beach:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • onion, diced
  • bell pepper, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1/2 cup Eggbeaters
  • 1 Tbs oregano
  • cup tomato sauce
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
Saute onion, bell pepper, and celery in 1 Tbs olive oil until soft. Add garlic and continue to saute until onions are transparent. Add tomato sauce and simmer on low heat for 30 minutes, then allow to cool. Combine Eggbeaters, ground beef, ground turkey breast, oatmeal, and oregano in a bowl, then add cooled sauce and combine. Pat tightly into pyrex loaf pan with a paper towel in bottom. Bake in 375F oven for 1 hour. Makes 6 servings.
Total protein per serving 17.0g
Total carbs per serving 3.5g
Total fat per serving 9.0g
