Deviled Eggs Recipe

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons butter, soft
6 hard boiled eggs
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
1/4 teaspoon prepared horseradish
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions:

Peel and cut eggs lengthwise once they have cooked. Scoop out the yolks. Set whites on a plate and prepare the yolk mix.

Put the yolks in a mixing bowl and combine the other ingredients. Mix well.

For the smoothest filling, press the mixture through a sieve. For the most elegant presentation, you can put yolk mixture in a pastry tube and select an interesting, large nozzle before you fill the whites with the mixture.

Otherwise, fill the eggs with a teaspoon, creating a smooth mound. For a touch of color, dust the eggs with paprika.

Refrigerate until ready to use.

Variation: Deviled Eggs with Ham

Follow the recipe for Deviled Eggs (above). Add 2 ounces finely minced ham to yolk mixture and increase mustard to 1 teaspoon. This adds 2.0 grams of carb.

Variation: Deviled Eggs with Smoked Salmon

Follow the recipe for Deviled Eggs (above). Add 2 ounces finely chopped smoked salmon, lox, or nova. This adds less than 1.0 gram of carb.

Variation: Deviled Eggs with Anchovies

Follow the recipe for Deviled Eggs (above). Add 2 ounces finely chopped, canned anchovies. This adds no carbs.

Sweet Spicy Pecans Snack Recipe

Ingredients:
2 cups pecan halves
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp cayenne or other hot pepper
Stevia equal to about 3 tsp sugar (See Stevia Exchange)
4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

Instructions:

Use a large enough skillet so the pecans are in one layer.

Melt the butter in the skillet and add the hot pepper. If you are using liquid artificial sweetener, add it now.

Add pecans to skillet and cook over medium heat. Stir every 30 seconds. After 2 or 3 minutes, stir them constantly until they just begin to brown. Watch as they can burn easily. (If the butter starts smoking call them done.)

Stir in cinnamon, salt, and powdered sweetener if you’re using it.

Remove from pan and place in bowl so as not to burn.

When they seem cool enough to taste, you can adjust the seasonings.

1 oz. (10 pecans) = 4.7 carbs

Cheese Crisps Recipe

Ingredients:
1 cup grated hard cheese
Seasonings (optional) garlic powder, hot pepper powder, cinnamon, etc.

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Note on type of cheese: Hard cheeses, such as Parmesan, Romano, Asagio, etc, will make a crisp “shell,” whereas cheddar will be more chewy and “lacey” (the fat separates out), though still firm.

Toss cheese with any seasonings if desired.

Pile 1 to 4 tablespoons of cheese (depending on the size you want) on a baking sheet covered with a silicone mat or parchment paper oiled on both sides. Flatten the tops so they are in more or less even. There should be at least two inches between smaller mounds, 4 inches between larger ones.

Bake 5 to 6 minutes until they are a light golden brown (they will be a little darker at the edges). Watch as they get brown fast.

If you want to mold them into a shape, you want to “drape” them while still warm. You can make cups over an upturned glass, or “taco shell” shapes by draping over any cylindrical object that is at hand (rolling pin, side of glass)

Serving Suggestions: Fill with dip, salad. Or spread the flat ones with spread or eat plain.
