uh... recipe on my blog!? Stranger things have happened! O.oAnd one for GROUND VEAL?!?! Really? Um... yes, 'fraid so!
Here's the story folks - the low carb way of eating is working wonders for my husband and I - and well, veal is on the list of acceptable things to eat! :D. There was a pound of ground veal on sale a bit ago and I grabbed it -why not? Mix it up a bit with the other meats.
Later on - I'm scratching my head every time I think about that ground pound of veal in the freezer. "What am I gonna do with that?!"
*think, think, think*
Patties? No - might as well just have a burger. Not even sure we're too keen on the taste of veal yet :s.
Brown it? With seasonings?? Uh... okay but what seasonings?? Again, we sure we'll like the taste?
Not knowing a great deal about veal - I put off using that ground pound for a bit.
Funny enough, tonight I wanted to go out and get a meatlovers omelet from a diner but know to spend money right now, just isn't a great idea... so.. internets here I come!
I'm a searchin' and a huntin' for a recipe for ground veal, low carb. Com'n google don't let me down! :D
Up came a few websites and after a good bit of time I found a Veal Loaf recipe. Hrm, hrm, hrm... not low carb.
I can work with this, yes, yes I can. It may call for bread crumbs, but instead I! - have cheddar cheese! It may call for margarine, but no! I have real butter! and oh you non low carb recipe - you may call for ricotta cheese but I have none! I will use cream cheese and you WILL taste yummy! I declare it! SO let it be written, so let it be done ;0) tee hee....
I must share this low carb yummy recipe with you - if only to keep a record of it for myself to refer back to in the future to recreate the tastiness! :D
For YOUR reference ;) HERE is the original recipe.
