Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Salisbury Steak

Soooo......what do you do with a pound of ground beef? Burgers? Meat loaf? Nah. Not this time! I really hate to admit this, but one of my favorite TV Dinners is Salisbury Steak. I just can't feed my husband a TV Dinner before going to work so after looking at a bunch of recipes, I came up with this one. Hope you like it. We did!

Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 6 PointsPlus™

1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
1/2 cup fat-free milk
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 tsp minced onion
1 (.75 oz.) envelope mushroom or brown gravy mix
1 lb 93/7 lean ground beef

In a large bowl, whisk together the egg substitute and milk. Add bread crumbs, gravy mix and minced onion. Mix in the ground beef until well combined.

Shape into 4 patties @ 3/4” thick.

Broil 3 – 4” from heat for 6-7 minutes on each side.

That's it!

MY SPIN: We both love garlic, so the next time I make this I'm going to add some garlic......and perhaps even a little Worcestershire Sauce. I plated this with some brown gravy and fresh sauteed mushrooms which added 1 PointsPlus™.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Loving Life(time)!
