The recipe is very simple:
1 package Gluten-Free low fat Hot Dogs, sliced
(which came recommended by two guys working the meat counter
because I don't buy hot dogs lol)
1 can of kraut, drained well
1 large can of Vegetarian Baked Beans, drained
1 large sweet onion, diced
1 Jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 teaspoon brown sugar blend
1/2 teaspoon of the following:
cilantro, black pepper, garlic powder, oregano, parsley, ground mustard
3 Tablespoons Honey Mustard
Saute onions in iron skillet on high until brown.
Add hot dogs and slightly brown them.
Mix together kraut, brown sugar and spices.
Pour beans over the onions, hot dogs.
Spread the mustard evenly over the bake beans.
Spread the kraut mixture on top.
Bake at 450 degrees for 1 hour.
The meal is complete with Gluten-free Sweet Yellow Cornbread...
To make this a bit healthier, I use applesauce instead of oil!
You can do this in any dessert recipe as well. I never use oil in my baking.
Another Tid-Bit-Tip: The key to weight loss and living healthy is portions. Trade your plates and bowls in for smaller ones. Go from 10" to 8" plates. Then look at your bowls, go smaller. Do things gradually for your family so you don't create stress for them...or maybe they won't even notice the change. A friend of mine even uses smaller silverware so that she takes smaller bites. Whatever works best for you.
