Ingredients for Luscious Ricotta Pancakes
1 cup cottage or ricotta cheese
1/4 cup soy protein isolate
Beat eggs well. Add cottage cheese and beat. Add soy powder and salt. Mix well. Stir in a little water, so the batter is not quite so thick. Heat oil in a frying pan, and when hot, spoon pancake batter in. Spread it around a little so pancakes are not too thick. When bubbly on top, turn, and cook until bottoms are done.
Serves 2 @ 5 carb each
Sausage and Egg “Muffins”
6 oz Ital. sausage
1/8 cup heavy cream
3 oz cheese
OPTIONAL: salsa, bacon, onion

Pour remaining egg mixture in and sprinkle with rest of cheese. Bake about 20 min.(time may vary) until eggs are done and golden. Remove from oven and let sit few minutes. Use spoon to remove "muffins".
Serves 3 @ 2.3 carbs

These puffed up about 2" and were really tasty
Fake French Toast II
dash cream, dash water
1 pkt Splenda
1 oz pork rinds (about 1/2 2.25 oz pkg)
Beat all ingredients except rinds. Crumble rinds and let soak in egg mixture until thick gloppy batter. Heat butter in frying pan, and pour in batter, spreading around pan. Fry until brown on one side, flip and brown other side. Serve with maple syrup.
Serves 1 @ 2.3 carbs
This was pretty good, but if you hate pork rinds, don't try it. The flavor is not real strong, but it's there.
Almond Vanilla Pancakes
5 Tbsp. almond flour (you could also use other nut flours or even soy flour
1 Tbsp. sour cream
1/2 tsp. baking powder
couple of pinches Splenda
1 Tbsp of Vanilla Syrup
2 Tbsp. Oil
Mix all the above together. If the consistency is too thick for your personal taste, splash on a bit more Vanilla Syrup. Pour on nonstick griddle surface (spray spatula with Pam, because they can be a bit difficult to turn). Recipe makes 2 large pancakes. You can use butter or maple syrup on them.
6 Carb Heavenly Breakfast “Soufflé”
Makes 1 Serving
1/2 cup egg whites
3 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1/2 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
1/2 medium tomato, thinly sliced
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup crumbled fresh goat’s cheese, or grated cheese of your choice
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Whip the egg whites to soft peaks adding salt and pepper to taste.
In a heavy 9-inch frying pan that can go into the oven, melt the butter over high heat. Add the mushrooms, season lightly and cook until the mushrooms become soft but not brown. Arrange the tomato over the mushrooms. Quickly fold the cheese into the whites and spread out evenly over the mushroom mixture. Place in the oven and bake for 8 minutes until golden on top.
Remove from the oven and run a spatula around the sides to loosen. Flip over onto a plate and serve immediately and only 6 carbs per serving.
