A Classic Bloke Meal

I don’t know about the rest of the world but in Australia a classic ‘bloke’ meal is Chicken Parmigiana (aka Parmi) and is regularly served in pubs across our great nation.

Tonight I arrived home to an LCHF Chicken Parmi and baked veg meal. The organic chicken breast had been flattened, egg washed, and then ‘breaded’ in a mix of almond meal, coconut flour, mixed herbs, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder and salt and pepper. The schnitzels were then pan fried in oil before being topped with a rich tomato sauce, crispy streaky bacon and grated cheese. Finished in a hot oven these low carb Parmies were to die for! Served with roasted onion & pumpkin, grilled capsicum, baked cauliflower and broccoli in a honey butter glaze I am definitely a fan of this dish!

A Cracking Dish… Day or Night!

After a big day at work yesterday I decided a quick, easy and delicious dinner was in order. Solution… Cheesy topped omelet! Yum!

I diced and cooked off some bacon, a small brown onion and green capsicum in a generous amount of butter. Once that was smelling irresistible I whisked 6 eggs, with a splash of heavy whipping cream and a good screw of black pepper. I added the eggs into my nonstick frypan (on high heat) and gave it a couple of gentle stirs/folds to incorporate all the ingredients and get some extra air into the omelet. Before the eggy mix was cooked all the way through I sprinkled the top with some cheese and transferred the pan under my pre-heated grill to brown the top. It only took a minute or two and the perfect fluffy, cheesy omelet was good-to-go.

This way of eating doesn’t have to be tricky or complicated. Gotta love LCHF! 🙂

Meatloaf and Mash

Dinner last night was delicious. I made Meatloaf with Creamy Roast Pumpkin / Cauliflower Mash and Steamed Broccoli Florets.

I began by browning 100g diced streaky bacon in loads of grass fed butter. Next I added one finely chopped large brown onion and sautéed until translucent. One large grated carrot went in next along with 1 tablespoon of whole grain mustard, mixed herbs, and a good screw of black pepper.

Once all that had cooked down nice I set it aside to cool while I prepared my pumpkin.

One quarter of organic kent pumpkin peeled, chopped & sprinkled with salt, pepper & smoked paprika and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.

I placed it on a lined tray and into a 200°C oven to roast.

I then took my cooled ingredients for the meat loaf and combined them with 1 egg, 1kg organic beef mince and 1/2 cup of almond meal. Once combined this went into a loaf tin and in the oven with the pumpkin.

When the meat loaf was nearly finished I removed the pumpkin from the oven, boiled a full head of cauliflower until tender, drained and then mashed the two together with my stick blender and loads more butter.

The mash was so super creamy no sauce was required. Yummy!!!
