Cheesy bun- I just used the carbquick cheddar biscuits recipe and made 4 flat buns instead 10 of round biscuits.  Here are the ingredients for it:

  • 2 cups Carbquik
  • 2 ounces butter, cold
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 pinch garlic powder
  • 1 pinch salt

Make 4 round, flat 'buns' and bake at 350 degrees for about 12-15 minutes.  Just keep an eye on your buns and take them out when they start to get golden brown on the edges.
Before placing your tuna pattie on your cheesy bun, if you desire, spread mayonnaise on the bun.

Noodles with Ham and Peas
  • Shiritaki noodles
  • or low carb spaghetti noodles (as pictured)
  • 3 tbs butter
  • 1 small onion
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup cubed ham
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Juice and grated zest of 1/4 lemon
  • Salt & pepper
  • Finely Chopped Parsley
  • Grated Parmesan
Instructions:   This is kind of an indepth recipe that I got from Disney Family.com that I adapted to be low carb

-Begin by bringing a large pot of water to a boil and salt it heavily (I use about a quarter of a cup of kosher salt, but you could use half that amount of table salt).
-In a wide pan over medium-low heat, melt two tablespoons of the butter and sauté the onion until it's very soft and starting to turn golden, around ten minutes. Meanwhile melt the other tablespoon of butter in a very small pan, and fry the breadcrumbs over medium heat until they are brown and crisp. Scrape them into a bowl when they're done, so they don't burn in the still-hot pan while you're not looking.
-When the onions are done, dump the noodles into the boiling salted water and give them a stir. Now add the broth, peas, and ham to the onions, turn up the heat, and boil vigorously until the broth is reduced by about half (i.e. there is much less of it left in the pan), then add the half and half and continue to simmer the sauce while you season it with the lemon zest and juice and salt and pepper (taste it first-the ham may add enough salt).
-Turn the heat under the sauce way down low while you drain the pasta, which should be done right about now. Stir the pasta into the sauce, stir in the parsley

Pepperoni Pizza
 10 net carbs for the WHOLE pizza!

  • 1 1/2 cups Carbquik
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup low carb pasta sauce
  • 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese
  • pepperoni

-Heat oven to 450ºF. Grease 12-inch pizza pan (or cook it on parchment paper). Stir together carbquik mix and very hot water; knead until soft dough forms. Knead dough 2-3 minutes till dough is dry and no longer sticky. Be careful not to over-knead it, because carbquik is a fickle friend!  Aka, it will get too hard after cooked
-Press dough in pizza pan (or just a circle). Layer sauce, cheeses and pepperoni
-Bake on the lowest rack in hot oven 12 to 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly.
