    bacon, onions and mushrooms sauted over a burger or a pork chop with some sauerkraut and homemade dairy free1000 island dressing on top, chili made with chorizo and beef with an egg and avocado on top, these are pretty much my staples and favorite meals.

    Today I made the bacon Brussels sprout au gratin from 12tomatoes.com. Delicious and a definite for our Thanksgiving table. Next in trying the lasagna from dietdoctor.com. We always have that around then too. Oh and I just found a recipe on Reddit for carrot cupcakes and cream cheese frosting.

    Yum - I made them in in muffin tins and froze for easy grab and go breakfasts. Use a paper liner tho - muffin tins are hard to scrub egg out of!

    BTW, this site link has a bunch of other recipes that sound great too.

    I like fajitas. Chicken or shrimp with bell peppers, onions, and spices.

    I just made a Homemade Meatloaf yesterday which, according to MFP, is only 4g (net carbs) per serving. I used about 2 lbs. ground beef, 1 medium onion (chopped small), 3 slices of Schmidts Whole Wheat 647 bread (a low carb bread, made by Schmidt's, which is only 6g (net) carbs per slice), 2 eggs, 3 tblsp. Parmesan cheese, 1/2 tsp. minced garlic, and about 2 tblsp. parsley flakes. I just run the bread under cold water, squeeze excess water out, and throw all the ingredients in a bowl, mix all the ingredients together by hand, and then form a loaf on a baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven. I actually made two smaller meatloaves yesterday and cooked it for about 11/4 hours. If you're going to do one large meatloaf, I would probably cook it for a little longer. I got a good 3 servings out of the 2 loaves I made yesterday (about 3 slices cut about a 3/4 inch thick) or 6 servings for a whole loaf.

    P.S. If you don't feel like waiting for it to bake, you can easily make 6 patties and fry them in a pan with a little olive or coconut oil instead. I've done it before but, being as I use 80/20 ground beef, I don't usually add any kind of oil to the pan, at all, because the burgers make their own oil.

    You can grind up mushrooms in place of the bread to hold it together and it tastes amazing.

    Hope you know he/she meant dried mushrooms right? Otherwise you are just adding more moisture :)
