Help, I need some Low Carb Crockpot recipes

I need to feed my daughter and her dad plus myself because her dad and are will be working things out and will be a family again, so I need some recipes where I'm not cooking two separate meals. It was okay when it was just Lea and myself but now it's gonna be two that eat regular meals and one lcer. Any ideals or recipes???

Leasmom, I am so happy to see you back with us again! I have been thinking of you lately and wondering if you were still low-carbing.

That is wonderful news about your family!

I think that I have some meals saved from before. I will take a look for them and post them when I get a minute later today. Have you been to --It's FC's sister site. There are some low carb recipe posted over there too.

What do you think of me starting another low-carb thread again for everyone? I have been putting if off starting back again and again. Have you stayed with it since you started a long time ago? If so, it must be natural for you now.

I'll post more later.......

Yes, never stopped. I get in trouble though trying to be polite at his mothers house. Despite telling her that I can't eat certain things, she considers it an insult not to eat her food. But, other than that, I'm doing fine. I may have to send her something on Low Carb so she understands I can't eat food with gravy, flour, sugar, and cakes and cookies.

I am excited about this but Lea hates the whole thing, but she is afraid he's gonna step in the way of our time together. I think she'll get used to everything. I'll check out that website. THanks.

Lea, I make pork or beef roast in my crockpot all the time. I just put the roast in, add my favorite seasonings, and after a few hours, viola--meat you don't have to cut with a knife. You could add any veggies that you want as well. It goes a far way at my house.

"What a crock!"

I have an enormous library of low-carb recipes (I do a chat on this subject every Thursday night on AOL!). My file of crockpot recipes has around 30 recipes in it, so please narrow this down a bit. Whatcha looking for? Chicken, beef, pork, brunch, other? I'll start you off with two of my favorites and as for the rest, ask and ye shall receive!

Tamara's Crockpot Pepperoni Pizza Meatloaf
1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. ground mild Italian sausage

2 eggs
3 Tb. pizza sauce

Italian Seasoning, to taste
Garlic Salt, to taste

fresh ground pepper, to taste
1/4 cup or so, of crushed pork rinds

cup or so, grated mozzarella cheese
16 or so, slices pepperoni

In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, sausage, eggs, pizza sauce,
seasonings, and crushed pork rinds

(I use my hands, blends all theseasonings and fillers together better... blend the meat, eggs, and pizza sauce together first, then add the seasonings, then add the pork rinds till the texture is right).
Divide the meat mixture into two balls, one a little larger than the other (about 1/3 to 2/3rds).
On a piece of wax paper, form the smaller portion into a big patty about an inch thick and 6ish or so inches across.

Depress a little bit of a well in the center, and add a big
handful of mozzarella cheese on top of the patty.
Next, take the bigger portion and patty out in your hands a big patty as well.

Put it on top of the cheese topped patty, and seal the edges to form a giant, round, cheese-stuffed meatloaf.
Put the meatloaf into your crockpot (on a rack, if you have one for your
Spread a little bit of pizza sauce on top of the meatloaf, then cover the top with the pepperoni slices in a slightly overlapping spiral(like a pizza).

Sprinkle a little more mozzarella on top.
Cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 8.

Just before eating, I took the meatloaf out of the crock, put it on an oven-safe plate, put a little more cheese on top, then placed it under the broiler for a little browned cheese topping.

You could skip that part if you want.
Cut it in 'pie wedges' and serve.
I served it with mashed "potatoes" (cauliflower) and green beans.

*A "meatloaf in a crockpot trick": when your meatloaf is almost as big
around as your crockpot, it can be hard to lower and lift it in and out of
the crock.

Try this: tear off 1-inch to 1-1/2-inch wide pieces of foil.
Arrange them in a 'spoke' fashion.

Place the meatloaf in the center of the'spoke'.
Lift up the edges of the foil to the top of the meatloaf, then use them as a handle to 'lift' the meatloaf into the crock. Works pretty good!

I'm sure you could easily adapt this recipe to a regular meatloaf pan...
just make it oblong instead of round.
And probably cooks at about 350 for an hour or so... consult your cookbook for basic cooking temp and time for a meatloaf.

Southwestern Style Sausage, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Casserole
This is my Xmas Morning recipe, EVERY year. I have family coming over to open gifts and I serve this one-pot brunch. I cook the various ingredients ahead and then before going to bed, toss it all into the crockpot. Add some some low-carb muffins and Diet V-8 Splash for the LCers, a regular coffee cake and OJ for the non-LCers, put up a po of coffee... and Voila!... it is the easiest no-work brunch!
18 eggs
1 small can green Ortega chilis
1 lb. cooked breakfast sausage
2 1/2 C grated Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack cheese
1 med. onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 tsp. butter
Serves 10
Grease crock with butter.
Starting with sausage, layer meat, chilis, onions, peppers and cheese, repeating the layering process until all ingredients are used and ending with a layer of cheese.
Beat eggs, then pour over mixture in the slow cooker.
Cover and turn on low.
Cook for 7-8 hours.
Serve with sour cream and fresh salsa.

<the end>

kasparcat, do you have the carb count on your recipes? The first one sounds really good.

I would love to see more along the lines of the meat and also one pot meals. Desserts too!

Thanks Tami

Im not sure if I deleted my low carb files in a fit of rage or what I did with them. I cant find them. I am planning on starting strong June 1. I will see you there!!!

Something I really like in the crockpot is chicken breast with a bottle of Italian Dressing. it is sooo good. You can eat the chicken like that for dinner or shred it up and make chicken salad. Very yummy
