Baked Sandwiches #1 Recipe
1 1/4 cup water at 110 to 115 f
2 1/4 tsp quick-rise yeast (1 pkg)
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 1/2 cup graham flour
1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup catsup
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp leaf oregano
1 pinch pepper
May be frozen. Defrost in the fridge, on the way to a picnic or in
the microwave if you want them in a hurry.
Combine water and yeast in mixer bowl and let stand 5 minutes. Add all
purpose flour and mix at medium speed for another 4 minutes. Turn the
dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead a few times, form
into a ball and place in a well-greased mixing bowl. Turn the ball
over to grease the top, cover with a cloth and let stand at room
temperature to rise until doubled in volume.
While the dough is rising, cook the meat and onions over medium heat,
stirring frequently, until the onions are soft and the meat is
browned. Drain. Discard fat and juice, return meat and onions to the
pan. Add tomato sauce, catsup, seasoning and cook over medium heat
until the meat is dry with no noticeable liquid. Set meat mixture
aside to cool until dough is ready.
After the dough has doubled in volume, transfer it to a lightly
floured working surface. Knead lightly. Form into a roll and cut
into 12 equal portions. Form each portion into a little ball, cover
with a cloth and let rest for 10 minutes.
Roll each ball out to form a circle 5 to 6 inches across. Put about
1/4 cup of the meat mixture in the center of the circle. Pull the
dough up around the filling and press together at the top. Place on a
well greased cookie sheet, cover with a cloth and let stand about 30
to 40 minutes at room temperature or until doubled in volume. Bake at
350 F for 40 to 45 minutes or until lightly browned and firm. Serve
hot, using 1 sandwich per serving, or refrigerate or freeze to be

Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is essential to also make sure you cut down your ingestion of refined carbohydrate, fat and salt.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* You can make really good smoothies by using reduced carbohydrate yogurt.
Ok, well, itís not technically cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can make them with low carbohydrate yogurt and your favorite fruit. Clearly, you will need to make sure you use only fruit that is low in carbohydrates and make use of the whole fruit as the fiber is beneficial.
* Make reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs for breaded foods.
Although you can possibly buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can also make them by using low carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the low carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a sheet of cookie paper. When it is well toasted, whizz it in the food processor using a coarse blade. Keep in an airtight jar.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, onions and welsh onion)
The onion family is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is very little scientific evidence obtainable, allyl sulphides are also thought to help with antiinflammatory effect, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also low in calories, so should be a part of every diet system.
