Mini Crab Cakes (Another mini muffin tin recipe)
3 cans of crab meat
3 TB mayo
2 TB brown mustard
3 TB parmesan cheese
4 tsp ground flaxmeal
3 TB shredded cheese
3 egg whites
Old Bay, as much or as little as you like
Powdered Ranch Mix, as much or as little as you like
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl, scoop into your mini muffin tins. Broil LOW for 10-15 minutes, keep an eye on them and take out when golden brown
This batch made 26, results will vary, don't have nutrition breakdown, since your ingredients may vary from mine, I use Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil, WalMart brand crab meat, French's spicy brown mustard, I ground the flax seeds myself in a coffee grinder that has never nor will ever see a coffee bean, and used mexican blend cheese
Ranch Mashed Faux-tatoes
1 bag frozen cauliflower (fresh is fine too)
4 TB cream cheese
4 TB heavy whipping cream
4 TB shredded cheese
2 tsp powdered ranch mix
2 TB butter, margarine etc
Cook cauliflower until tender, dump in a colander and press a small plate or bowl against it to drain all moisture. Toss them and repeat.
Place cauliflower in food processor with whipping cream and puree until smooth, return to pot.
When ready to serve, heat in the pot on low, slowly add in all other ingredients and stir. You'll know it's ready when your cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
You can hand mash if you don't have a food processor or if you prefer yours to be chunkier
They were so good you'd think I shouldn't eat them... YOM!
Again, nutritional info will vary with your ingredients, didn't work these out yet.
I used frozen cauliflower, low fat cream cheese, mexican blend shredded cheese, and smart balance light spread and it was amazing.
yep, lots of powder ranch added to my recipes these days, bought it in a plastic jar and it makes everything a little kickier. I love ranch, now I can have it without the added fat and calories. Feel free to leave it out if you aren't a fan, but these are my experiments so I can put it in if i want to :P
