Today Jimmy and Mindy are joined by Scott Milford and Jerome Biggars as they discuss getting cheesed off by cheese, pizza as a vegetable and much more! So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and sit a spell on our Virtual Porch as we chew the fat on another great episode of Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore and Friends!
LINKS MENTIONED IN EPISODE 32
1 pound ground beef
2 tablespoons onion, chopped
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup spaghetti sauce
8 ounces cream cheese
1/8 teaspoon pepper
10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese (I used the kind in a can)
Brown the hamburger with the onion; drain off the fat. Mix in the
garlic powder and spaghetti sauce; season to taste and heat until
bubbly. Meanwhile, soften the cream cheese in a medium-size
microwaveable bowl for about 40-60 seconds. Stir until creamy; beat in
the egg and pepper with a spoon until well mixed. Blend in the
spinach. Spread half of the meat mixture evenly in the bottom of a
greased, 8 x 8″ glass baking pan. Spread the spinach mixture over the
meat; top with the mozzarella, then the rest of the meat. It may not
completely cover the top, but that’s ok. Sprinkle with the parmesan
cheese. Bake at 350º about 30 minutes until hot and bubbly. Or, cover
with plastic wrap and vent one corner then microwave on HIGH for 3
minutes; then reduce to MEDIUM and cook for another 7-10 minutes until
hot and bubbly. Let stand 3 minutes before serving.
