Waffle Quesadilla

I have been craving a quality quesadilla, but honestly, too much milk fat RIPS my stomach apart. So I walked my booty to Whole Paycheck today and bought Lisanatti Almond Cheese and some new flour tortillas. Just so I could make this baby!

Ingredients:

  • 2 flour tortillas (I used the smaller Whole Foods 365 Organic brand)
  • 54g Lisanatti Foods Mozzarella Style Almond Cheese

Super simple. Grate the cheese with a cheese grated. Lay one tortilla down and spread the cheese all over it. Place the other tortilla on top. Transfer the quesadilla into a waffle maker (Belgian waffle maker works best because it’s round!) that’s sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Close the waffle maker, and let it cook until it’s crispy! The cheese may start melting out of the quesadilla, so just take it out when that happens- hehe!

Cheddar Chicken Burger

I love burgers. And I love cheese. I figured…why not combine ’em both?! Decided to go with ground chicken because that’s what I had in my fridge

Ingredients:

  • 112g (4oz) extra lean ground chicken breast
  • 15g fat free mild cheddar cheese
  • Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute

I mixed all of the ingredients in a bowl (I just used pinches of each seasoning), then formed my patty. I cooked on the stove in a covered pan, flipped halfway through, then took it off when it was at my desired done-ness. I sandwiched my patty between 2 sliced of Butternut Ultra-Soft Whole Grain White Bread with Trader Joe’s Bold & Smoky Kansas City Style Barbecue Sauce.

Chicken Meatballs

I have been wanting to make some kind of meatball. When I went to the store yesterday, I spotted ground chicken at the last minute and knew that’s what I wanted to experiment with! So the experimenting began…

Ingredients:

  • 4oz ground chicken (I used extra lean)
  • Diced raw onion (43g)
  • 20-30g liquid egg whites
  • 8g oat bran
  • Salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder
  • Sambal Oelek

Preheat oven to 350F. Combine all of the ingredients above in a bowl. You can use a spoon or fork to combine or get down and dirty with your hands! Grease a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray then put the mixture in the pan– mine made 3. Cook for approximately 25 minutes or until cooked through.
