Panini Prosciutto and Cheese*

Ingredients:

  • a large loaf of whole grain Italian bread
  • goat cheese – 2 ounces crumbled
  • fresh basil leaves – 1/2 cup
  • two medium tomatoes – sliced
  • thinly sliced prosciutto – 2 ounces
  • 2 cups of arugula leaves
  • 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar

This is a phenomenal recipe that reminds me of something that my great-grandfather  would enjoy. This makes four servings each of them has approximately 250 cal and 30 g of carbohydrates. First you should cut the bread in half lengthwise. I usually like to remove the extra dough from the inside of the bread. This normally leaves about a half-inch thick shell.

After that lightly coat the outside of the breadth with your olive oil nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the goat cheese over the cut side of the bread bottom. Then you can stop this with the basil, tomatoes, prosciutto and arugula. You can even drizzle over top some balsamic vinegar and cover this with the other half of the loaf of bread. Now to a large nonstick skillet with your cooking spray and let this preheat over medium heat. Place in the skillet and use another pan or something like that to apply pressure to flatten the sandwich out a little bit.

Normally it takes about 2 minutes for this to cook on one side and then turn it over and cook it for another 2 minutes or so until both sides are browned evenly. After that remove it from the skillet on a cutting board for at least 7 minutes. After that make sure that you use a serrated knife to cut the entire loaf into four portions. I usually like to serve the sandwiches warm or at least at room temperature.

Remove the membrane from the grapefruit and make large holes in the center for the crab meat. Moisten your crabmeat with the boiled dressing and spoon your crab meat mixture into the grapefruit. You can garnish this with a dash of paprika or even sliced olives or pimentos. You can even sweeten in grapefruit with some Stevia if you like before serving it.

Elyse’s Favorite Burger*

  • one large egg
  • whole wheat bread crumbs – 1/4 cup
  • fresh tarragon – 1 tablespoon
  • salt – 1/4 teaspoon

  • 2 whole wheat sandwich thins
  • fresh spinach leaves – 1 cup
  • four slices of tomato

This is an awesome recipe makes approximately 4 servings each of them having 330 cal and 22 g of carbohydrates.

I prefer to use fresh tuna fillets but if you are using frozen first you have to fall your tuna. Then clean the tuna and then chop it and set it on the side.  Crack open the egg and beat it with a fork. Mix in the tarragon, breadcrumbs,  the salt and 1/8 teaspoon of the pepper. When this is all mixed nicely add the tuna and stir until everything is mixed together nicely. After that use your hands and shaped this into four 1/2 inch thick patties. Now in a shallow dish mixed together the flaxseed meal and the flaxseeds and dip the tuna patties into this mixture. Just be sure that it’s evenly coated on both sides. Then spray a nonstick skillet with your cooking spray and heat over medium heat and add the tuna patties and let this cook for approximately 12 minutes or for as long as it takes to make sure that is totally cooked. While the tune is cooking in another bowl mash your avocado and then add mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon peel, garlic, 1/8 teaspoon of salt and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon of pepper. You should continue to mash this and make sure everything is mixed well. When you are ready to serve this place one sandwich thin in each of your serving plates. And then top with the spinach leaf and tomato slices followed by the cooked tuna patties. Make sure that you spoon on top your avocado mixture evenly onto each sandwich.
