Baked Sandwiches 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
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Food labels can be misleading
Don't trust food labeling that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. Quite a few are only slightly less and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are just the same.
* Use soya flour or soy baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baking, substitute soya flour or a bake mix like Atkins baking mix. In many cases, you can change your most popular recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these low carbohydrate alternatives.
Superfoods rich in flavonoids
(inlcudes lettuce, broccoli, yams & basil)
The compounds known as flavonoids discovered in these natural foods are thought by nutritionalists to have properties as cancer fighters.
Specialists looking into the nutritional effects of flavonoids believe that they might also have many other health giving properties, amongst them, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory activities..
The majority of these are also good for weight loss, so should be a part of every diet.
