Poor Man’s Crab Cakes

Got some canned chicken?

Make these delicious and low carb “crab” cakes tonight!

BRUCE’S POOR MAN’S CRAB CAKES 

16-18 ounces canned chicken
1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
2 tablespoons fresh herbs, such as parsley and chives, chopped
2 tablespoons green onion tops, finely chopped
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 egg
Pinch salt, optional
Pinch pepper
1/4 cup coconut oil

Break the chicken up into very small bits.  Squeeze all of the moisture out of the meat.  Mix all of the ingredients and shape in 4 patties.  I put a sheet of wax paper on a small baking sheet then dropped the chicken mixture into piles. I used my hands to shape each pile into a patty.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 1 hour.

Heat the coconut oil in a skillet  over medium heat. Fry the patties 4-5 minutes per side, flipping carefully, until golden brown on each side.  Drain on a paper towel and serve.

Makes 2-4 servings.

COOK’S NOTE: I like to serve these with a type of tartar sauce made by combining 1/2 cup mayo, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning.  Since we like garlic, I’ll usually add a dash of powdered garlic, too.

Cream Cheese & Bacon Stuffed Peppers aka Poppers!

Previously I posted my recipe for Poppers.  In fact, it was one of my first foodie blog posts!  I’ve posted several recipes since then and hope you’ve enjoyed them.

Here’s another way to make poppers.  They’re delicious and naturally low carb!  Instead of wrapping the stuffed peppers in bacon…add the cooked bacon to the cream cheese stuffing!

Easy-peasy!

 Here’s what you’ll need…

oops!  Forgot to include the bacon.


Soften the cream cheese and add the rest of the ingredients.

Stuff the peppers and place on a baking sheet.  Sprinkle with the

parmesan cheese.

yum-yum!

I’m one of those cooks that rarely ever measures anything so it does make

it hard to pass on the recipe.  But, looking at my

previous Poppers recipe, I’d say I used about

the same amount of ingredients.

Poppers

Jalepeno peppers (cut open and remove all seeds)

8 oz cream cheese

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

seasoning such as Soul Seasoning or Seasoning Salt, garlic, Old Bay, etc

2 green onions, sliced

6 -8 slices bacon, cooked, drained, crumbled

Parmesan cheese

Mix the cheeses.  Add the seasonings, onions and bacon.  Fill the peppers with the mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Place on a foil lined pizza pan or baking sheet.

Bake in a 375º oven for about 20-30 minutes.  Keep a check on them after 20 minutes and bake until the peppers look done and the filling is all melty and gooey.   Cool and enjoy!  I served these with Ranch Dressing.

In case you’re wondering about my readers…here’s the results! Apparently readers from all over enjoy low carb and Southern cooking!  Thanks to all who participated.
