He was SO shocked and got right to work making some.
5.5 pounds Extra Lean Ground Beef
1 large onion, finely diced
2 Cups of crushed whole wheat crackers or bread crumbs
8 Egg Whites
2 Cups of Clean Marinara
1 1/2 cup Clean marinara or ketchup
1/2 cup Xylitol brown sugar substitute OR 1/4 cup Agave Nectar
Mix all ingredients except the sauce. Form into loaves or burgers (I often do burger sized because then they cook a lot faster:) and cover with foil. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes for burgers, 30 minutes for larger loaves. Uncover, top with sauce and bake an additional 8-15 minutes until the sauce looks almost caramelized.
I usually bake my loaves on a broiler pan so that any grease can drip off.
Serve with a big green salad to offset the meat:) Enjoy!
