Flatout Barbeque Chicken Pizza

Last night I decided at the last minute I wanted to cook something but I did not know what. I did know that I needed to already have the ingriedients at home because I didn't feel like dealing with the madhouse errrr I mean grocery store. So I came to the conclusion to make a Flat Out pizza!! 
Here is my recipe and I hope you enjoy!! 
  • One Light Original Flatout
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite barbeque sauce
  • 4 ounces cooked chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup thawed & sliced frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1/4 cup fat free shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Spray a non-stick cookie sheet with an olive oil spray
  • Lay the Flatout on the cookie sheet and spread with barbecue sauce
  • Top with chicken, pineapple, and cheese
  • Bake 10-12 minutes or until cheese melts
  • Slice and enjoy!!!

Taco Muffins

I came across this recipe on Danica's Daily and the original recipe is from The Biggest Loser. I decided to give this a go and try something new. I was concerned that two muffins would keep me full in the mornings. I paired this with some turkey bacon and fruit and it keeps me going until lunch.
Here is my version of the Taco Muffins!

  • 3 small corn tortillas 
  • 12 Jennie-O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, cooked according to package directions
  • 2-1/4 cups liquid eqq white
  • 1/4 cup shredded fat free mozzarella cheese 
  • 12 tablespoons of your favorite salsa
  • 1 non stick muffin pan
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Stack tortillas and cut into quarters. Cut quarters in half so you will have 8 wedges for each tortilla (and a total of 24 wedges). 
  • Spray each muffin cup with olive oil cooking spray. 
  • To assemble: Place one tortilla wedge in each muffin cup, with the widest side at the bottom of the cup. 
  • Place a second tortilla wedge on the opposite side of the muffin cup so that the wide edges will be overlapping in the bottom of the cup, by about ½ inch. The tortilla wedge points will extend outside of the cup, about ½ inch straight up. Repeat for the other muffin cups. 
  • Place two sausage halves (from one whole link) in each muffin cup, on top of the tortilla wedges. 
  • Place a tablespoon of salsa on top of the sausage. 
  • Measure 2 tablespoons (the original recipe calls for 3 tablespoons) of egg white into each muffin cup. 
  • Bake 15 minutes or until eggs are just set and no longer wiggle. They will be slightly puffed. 
  • Distribute 1/4 cup cheese on each muffin and bake in oven for an additional minute or until the cheese is melted. 
  • Carefully remove "muffins" from pan and place two on each serving plate. 
  • Optional: serve with low-fat or fat free refried beans, extra salsa, or fresh melon slices.

Turkey Sausage Tomato Sauce & Rotini Pasta

I decided at the last minute to cook dinner last night instead of relying on a frozen dinner or a pbj sandwich. I had the ingredients to make Jennie-O's turkey sausage spirals so I figured I would go ahead and make this. I started out making the recipe and it was going good but then I got to part 3 and it says the sauce needs to cook for at least an HOUR. Excuse me...I do not have that kind of time. So I quickly had to improvise and move to plan b. Plan b consisted of incorporating similar recipes from Skinny Taste and Weight Watchers. In the end I came out with a good dinner! More importantly I have lunch for today!! I love leftovers!!

  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. 
  • Add chopped onion, sliced bell pepper, garlic, oregano, basil, and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring frequently, until onion is translucent. 
  • Remove the casings from the sausage and add to skillet. Cook sausage until browned. 
  • When the sausage is browned and cooked through, add crushed tomatoes and bring to a boil. 
  • Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 5 minutes. 
  • Serve 1/2 cup sauce over 1 cup cooked rotini pasta or your favorite whole wheat pasta
  • Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of reduced-fat grated Parmesan cheese over each serving and enjoy!

Happy Friday the 13th

Today was a good day. Blogger was down this morning so this isn't the post I originally wanted to do. And I am doing this post by email so cut me some slack. :-)
This is my happy this Friday.
I went to a new restaurant today called In the Buns Burger Joint. It is very new and located in North Austin. You may be wondering why I am at a burger place when I don't eat red meat. Well they have a turkey burger!!! So that it what I ate along with curly fries. I recommend you go to this place if you are ever in the north Austin area!! Also, try the chipotle ranch!! It is good and has just the right amount of spiciness to it.
