Missing milk? It can be made if you take a quart of half-n-half; mix it with equal parts of cold water plus an extra 1/4 cup (use a good bottled water); add a teaspoon of Splenda (it takes the place of the lactose), mix well and chill overnight. It will stay fresh for 3–5 days and I bet you find it great in a glass with that plate of cookies, or in your cereal bowl in the morning. If you liked your milk "skim" before the diet, you may want to add more water. If you liked "whole" milk, try making it with 1/2 cream and 1/2 half-n-half. The mix as I make it appoximates 2% milk.

So, how many carbs are we talking about? Well, it depends on how you make it. If you make it according to these primary directions and have a 6–8 oz glass, it will run you 4 to 5.5 carbs. If you make it with half cream you can get the carbs down to about 3 grams per glass. Ditto for making it in the "skim" version.

Cheesy Breakfast Bake ****
2 cups Bisquick (or 2 cups Atkins Bake Mix)
1 cup Half & Half
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
Mix together and spread in greased 9X13 pan

2 packages of Jimmy Dean sausage (any flavor - but hot is best)
Brown, drain grease and put on top of first mixture

3 cups shredded cheese (I use cheddar or a "Mexican/taco" mix)
1 4-oz can of Chopped Green Chiles
1 egg
2 Tbsp Mayonnaise
Mix together and spread on top of sausage.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes, let cool for a couple minutes then cut into 16 servings - YUM!
If you use Bisquick: 13.5 Protein and 11 carbs per Serving
If you use Atkins Bake Mix: 20 Protein and 2.6 Carbs per serving
I've tried it both ways; I personally like the taste of the Bisquick better (who wouldn't?) But I have a co-worker who cut the "breading part" in half and left the other layers the same. It tasted just as good. (Protein: 13.5 grams; Carbs: 6.3 grams)

Eggs Benny Crepes

I make this every other Christmas breakfast & it is a real big hit.
Make hollandaise or a cheese sauce...keep warm. Scramble eggs according to how many you will be serving. Warm slices of black forest ham {or your choice} or slices of Canadian back bacon. In the center of each thin pancake, lay the warm ham or bacon, spoon the scrambled eggs on top of that. Fold over or roll then spoon on the hollandaise.

TSD's Best Ever Muffins

3 lg eggs
1 1/2 sticks of butter, melted
2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup Vital Wheat Gluten Flour (Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 cup Splenda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
dash of salt
ground cinnamon, 3 big dashes
1/2 cup Davinci Vanilla Syrup
1/2 cup water
1 cup Flax seed meal(Bob's Red Mill)
1/2-1 cup blueberries,(omit if on induction)

Preheat Oven to 350

Beat eggs, add melted butter and vanilla and continue to beat well. With an electric mixer or whisk, add ONE BY ONE: Vital Wheat Gluten Flour, Splenda, baking powder, salt and ground cinnamon. Beat well. STIR in the syrup, water and flax seed meal. Gently fold in blueberries.

Put Reynolds FOIL bake cups in your muffin tin(discard the paper and just use foil part). Makes 12 muffins. Put batter in the tins and top each muffin with one blueberry (optional--this just makes them look real nice). Bake for 35 minutes.

They can be individually wrapped and stored in the fridge. Just toast twice and you have a quick, easy and delicious breakfast! 2.75 per muffin(no berries)

If you add the berries make sure you add the carbs(depending on how many berries you use). Also, I use Vanilla without any sugar/corn syrup. If your Vanilla has sugar/corn syrup in it, you need to add 3g per tsp.

German Pancakes
6 eggs, separated
1/4 cup almond meal/flour
1/4 cup half & half
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 t salt

1. Beat egg whites until stiff.
2. Beat egg yolks until thick. Beat in almond meal, melted butter, half & half, and salt.
3. Fold in egg whites.
4. Using a heavily buttered crepe pan, fry about 1 cup batter at a time. When the edges begin to curl and the batter is totally set, flip over and brown the other side.
Note that when frying these, the batter tends to settle -- mix it each time before getting a new ladleful. This recipe makes 5 crepe-size pancakes.

Ricotta Pancakes
4 large eggs
1 c ricotta (if you can't find a good ricotta you may use Philadelphia Soft cream cheese)

1 packet of Splenda.
Delicious and better than the real thing. Try putting in a 1/4 c of pecans or a 1/4 c of blueberries...use cinnamon and nutmeg about some crisp crumbled bacon...put in some chocolate with some real whip cream...have fun, this is just the starter!
