Topless Salad

So I named this meal after a salad at the Pint Room that has a burger with no bun on it. You can leave off the fresh mozzarella if you have a dairy allergy.

  • A head of your favorite lettuce (I like romaine, butter, and kale mixed)
  • Peppers and tomatoes or other veggies like cucumbers for the salad.
  • Dress in olive oil and balsamic vinegar to taste.

1 lb. of ground beef - make into very small patties. Cook on the stovetop until done.

Now add a dollop of good homemade or good quality (with no sugar) store-bought marina (like Rao's) and add 1/2 of a small ball of mozzarella to top each burger.

Serve the salad adorned with the topless burgers and enjoy with a glass of Kombucha!

Use-Your-Leftovers Frittata

I came home from morning classes starving and I was so tired of the same old eggs! So I grabbed some leftover grassfed ground beef and sun-dried tomatoes and whipped this up!  

  1. Turn the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Layer a handlful of sundried tomatoes or add veggies, in a oven-safe dish.
  3. Layer your left-over meat (of any kind - bacon, pork, ham, turkey, etc.) and sprinkle with your favorite seasonings. (I used an Italian Blend).

4. Mix eggs (I used 8) and a little pastured milk if you have it and pour over tomatoes and meat.

5. I sprinkled some black pepper and smoked paprika on top to give it more zing and some color.

6. Bake until is is cooked through (40 minutes for me.) Couldn't wait to eat it, yum!
