Low Carb Recipe: Loaded Hot Dog Bowl

Give me some love!

Since I’ve posted about LCHF a lot lately, I thought now would be a good time to post my new favorite Low Carb Recipe! If you haven’t noticed, I’m trying to get back into the habit of blogging. Lately I’ve felt motivated to post, so I’m going to ride that wave.  One of the main reasons I purchased my DSLR camera was so to improve quality of my recipe/meal prep photos. However, ironically as soon as I bought the camera, I lost interest in blogging about food. HA. Well, no more! Today I’m blogging about food! Low carb food!

I Love Low Carb

The finished product. Doesn’t that look amazing?!?

The Ingredients

(Serves one) Hint, double up and put the rest in the fridge for tomorrow!

1/4 large white onion – sliced

1-2 tablespoons butter (I use two because fats! You can also use olive oil if you’re worried about butter’s low smoke point)

1/4 green bell pepper (optional, I won’t add this next time)

1 cup German style Sauerkraut (because it’s superior)

4 oz. Polska Kielbasa sausage

Pickles for garnish

Salt and Pepper to taste

a healthy squirt of mustard

The Recipe

 

The great thing about this Low Carb Recipe is that it is so quick and easy. I can have dinner on the table in under thirty minutes!

First, slice your kielbasa and onions (and peppers if you use them.) Add your fat to your skillet and preheat. Be careful not to get your skillet too hot or your fat will smoke and you don’t want that! Saute your veggies for about 5 minutes, until they begin to soften. Then, add the meat and cook for about 5 minutes more, until your meat begins to look brown and delicious. In the final few minutes of cooking, add your sauerkraut. You can just warm the kraut or grill it for a few minutes to make it a little more crisp. I like it both ways.

For the final step, add everything into a bowl. Garnish with salt, pepper, pickles, and mustard. Chow down! Let me tell you, I LOVE anything with sauerkraut. Fermented foods are SO good for your gut. This recipe allows me to eat as much kraut as I can stand. I have literally eaten this recipe 2x/week since I came up with it.

The Macros

Here is a screenshot of the macros for this recipe. Not bad!

I try not to eat a ton of processed meat but c’mon…. Kielbasa is just soooooooo good.
