My mother is a meatloaf fan. She recently found this recipe for a "Pizza Meatloaf" that is diabetes friendly. Pizza Meat Loaf 1 lb ground 90% lean turkey or beef 6 Tablespoons dried fine bread crumbs (she uses whole grain bread crumbs or crushed bran flakes) ½ cup finely chopped onion ½ cup finely chopped green bell pepper ½ cup sliced mushrooms, drained 1 ¾ cup (one 15oz can) tomato sauce (low sodium, no sugar added) 2 tsp Italian seasoning 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp pepper ¾ cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese Spray loaf pan with nonstick spray. In a large bowl, combine meat, bread crumbs, onion, green pepper, mushrooms,salt, pepper, ½ cup tomato sauce, & 1 tsp Italian seasoning. Mix well to combine. Form loaf in pan. Stir remaining 1 tsp Italian seasoning into remaining tomato sauce. Spread sauce mixture evenly over meat mixture. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese evenly over top. Bake 10 more minutes or until cheese is melted and loaf is fully cooked. Each serving equals: 240 calories 9 g fat 29 g protein 11g carbohydrate Diabetic exchanges: 2½ meat 2 vegetable

The following website will show you my BBQ Blog that includes some great BBQ recipes. They were not intended to be "diabetic friendly", but most can be done in a diabetic friendly manner by using Splenda products (sugar, baking blend, or brown sugar). Enjoy.

Here,s one for those who like a spicy appetizer or for partys or just snack.They are called my Stuffed greenie jalopeenie.You will need 1 Large bag pork rinds and 1 large can pickeled jalepenos drained and rinsed slice in half and seeded drain upside down on paper towels also you will need two eggs beaten with a whisk or you can use 4 egg whites beaten stiff like for merangie. Now you will also need 2cups milk 2% will work and a block of cream cheese any %fat I use light.and 1 cup chedder cheese lite now get eggs ready which ever way you want to fix them do not mix egg whites in to the milk only the whole ones if that is what you have chosen.whipped go to their selfe now you will need a food processor or some way to crumble the pork rinds put them in a bowl to the side now mix soften cheeses.Now set up assembly line stuff pepper with cheese mix dip in egg mix roll in crumbs. lay on tray you really need to freeze and double dip than freeze again when frozen put in containers until use deep fry quickly in hot canolla oil drain on paper towels .These fry in about 1-2 min. when you use whipped egg whites just dip in whites and roll in crumbs no egg and milk mix.These are so delicious the pork rinds have no carbs peppers a trace the cheese and eggs none or a few I serve these with quacamole and sour cream for dipping.Enjoy. " align="top" border="0">.S you can adjust this to your amounts according to how many you will make or add something else to the filling just remember stuff than dip than roll freeze than again dip roll and freeze than put in containers. from slippershoe:

Chicken Salad 2 cups of cold cooked chicken(white meat is best).You can also used canned chicken breast. 2 tablespoons of sweet relish. Kroger brand has a no sugar one.Or chopped gerkins 1/4 cup each finely chopped red onion and celery. 1/2 cup lite mayo or miricle whip lite. 1 tablespoon white vinegar & 2 teaspoons splenda mixed into mayo.
