This recipe hails from Light & Tasty. The Contributors' name is Margaret Ford from S.D. I did not make changes to her recipe ingredients-only the prep-cook, which worked well for us.
To be aware the Maple syrup taste did not shine through-and I only used 1 tsp. of the smoke additive and to us it was prononouced enough.
My DH really liked this, since regular sausage upsets his stomach
This is my favorite soup. It's a nice balance of sweet and savory, and it freezed beautifully. I like it with grilled cheese.
(I hate to specify a brand name / hard to find ingredient, but I haven't found a good substitute for Thai Kitchen's roasted red chili paste.)

I've often put shredded cooked chicken in my migas or breaksfast tacos, so when I started the South Beach Diet I came up with this recipe. The egg cups can be made ahead of time and refrigerated, then heated just before serving. I like mine topped with Cholula hot sauce!
It's nice to have some refried beans you can pull out of the freezer for a side with your Mexican meals without opening a can with all the extra fat. One side serving is 1/2 cup, which also makes about 4 tacos or burritos These are a great side dish, may also be used for burritos, and can be served as a main dish with plenty of shredded cheddar and salsa on top. Take the time and make these ahead. You won't be sorry!
The theory is you dump this in a bag and freeze to pull out later. There are many variations which I will post separately but it's amazingly easy to make these up and have a different "dump" chicken every week!
I combined different spices to achieve what tastes almost as good, if not better than regular sausage. Be sure to use regular ground turkey (not ground turkey breast, which is too lean so it doesn't have enough moisture). UPDATE: After all the positive reviews, I decided to submit this to Taste of Home's Light & Tasty and they published it in the Dec/Jan 2008 issue. It's also in the Light & Tasty Annual Recipes 2008 Cookbook.
I have a good friend who fixes these for church potluck dinners. He gets up early to make a large pan and he never has any leftover. So easy and cheap! I toss everything in a ziploc bag the night before, and they will fall apart when cooked. These can be placed in a ziploc bag with the dressing marinade and frozen, then simply defrost overnight in the refrigerator and cook as usual.
This main meat dish is so flavorful and delicious; you can serve this to your family or dinner guests who won't guess that they are eating a recipe out of a "diet" cookbook. This recipe can be eaten during Phase 1 of the diet. Recipe courtesy of the South Beach Diet Cookbook.
A little surprise will greet you when you bite into these succulent burgers hot of the grill. You can make each recipe ahead of time and refrigerate the burgers for 24 hours or freeze them, tightly wrapped for 1 month
Well, I made these up using our favorite ingredients. Ground pork is sometimes less expensive than ground beef. We have also had this with ground turkey and ground chicken. Everyone who has had them says that they are moist and flavorful. They are also easy to make! I usually make 4, we eat 2 and I freeze 2 to cook later. Enjoy! Let me know what you think of these :) .
