This recipe is for you! It’s packed with that burger flavor we all love minus the carbs!!

You can switch out the ground turkey for beef or even pork and feel free to add a drizzle of ketchup if you are not too worried about the carbs!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground turkey 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 bag coleslaw salad bag 
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced 
  • ½ cup diced dill pickles
  • ¼ cup diced pickled jalapeños 
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard or your favorite mustard 
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt & pepper

Instructions

In a large skillet, heat the oil on medium heat.

Once hot, add the ground turkey and break it up to cook.

When turkey is no longer pink, add the garlic and onions, salt and pepper, and saute for 2 minutes.

Add the coleslaw bag, jalapeños and pickles. Put a lid on the skillet and let the coleslaw cook down for about 3 minutes – until cabbage is tender.

Once cooked down, stir in the mustard and water. Allow excess water to cook down, and if your mixture is really dry, add a tablespoon of water in.

Stir in the shredded cheese.

Zucchini Quiche Minis

While these crustless low carb quiches are small, they offer big flavor, and they are a cinch to make.

I just started doing Weight Watchers so I’ve been trying to create low carb and low point meals. I was pleasantly surprised how delicious these turned out and they’re only one point each!

Ingredients 

  • 2 small zucchini, finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 6 large eggs or substitute with egg beaters
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Salt and pepper 

Instructions 

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Coat two 24-hole nonstick mini muffin pans with cooking spray.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; spoon about 1 heaping tablespoon egg mixture into each prepared hole, making sure to stir mixture in bowl after filling each one.

Bake until bottoms are golden brown and quiche is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove pan from the oven and let quiche cool for a few minutes in pan; remove quiche to a wire rack to cool more (and repeat with remaining ingredients if necessary).
