    Chef #569938's Note:

    This recipe is an idea I came up with, to satisfy my craving for "the real thing" while on a no salt, no fat, no wheat, low glycemic, healthy eating plan! Of course, though not flakey like the traditional dough made with butter and shortening, these are made similar to an omlette or crepe, and have all the flavor without the fat! If not on salt restriction, you may add salt to taste.

    Meat Filling



    1. 1
      For meat filling, mix all ingredients well. Place meat mixture in a large non-stick frying pan, lightly oiled if necessary. Cook over medium heat, turning until well done, drain if necessary. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Mix ingredients for batter in a blender. Heat a small sautee pan over med-high heat, oiling lightly if necessary. Pour 1/3 C batter into prepared pan, swirling to make even circle,(like an omlette or crepe) if needed. As batter quickly begins to set, while still slightly fluid, add about 1 oz. of the prepared meat on one half of circle, and flip other half of circle over to form a half-moon shape. Press with spatula on round edge to seal. Cook slightly longer on one side, then flip over and brown on other side.("Patty" will look similar to an omlette, only more firm. Slide patty out of pan, and repeat.

      This was absolutely delicious! Actually I don't know the "real thing", so I cannot compare, but this definitely will be a keeper. I used ground turkey and substituted rolled millet for the oats but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. Thanks for posting! Made for Healthy Choices Tag Game.

      No! Sorry, did not like at all.
      Not a substitute for the real thing.
