Crazy Good

Last night while waiting for the spouse to come home I was watching The  Food Network.

I don't typically watch it and I was really enjoying the show The Best Thing I Ever Ate, Crazy Good.  It was really fun to see people describe their absolute favorite food they'd ever eaten all while giving some little shop some major publicity.

Of all the different foods on this particular episode the Matterhorn Cake, from Sweet Surrender Bakery, that Giada spoke of looked to be my favorite by far.  I love me some chocolate cake and that looks like the ultimate cake!!

Since I wasn't looking to completely sabotage myself, I decided to try a different food featured.  For lunch today I made the hamburger spinach egg dish.  It's super simple and is perfect for any Core (or any other low/no carb diet) followers out there and it's gluten free!

Start by caramelizing some onions with salt, pepper and a touch of olive oil.  Then add the hamburger.  I used 93% lean ground beef.

Once the hamburger is cooked through add some fresh spinach.
Stir in the spinach and stir for a few minutes.  Then add  the eggs.
Keep stirring until the eggs are fully cooked.  It's not a pretty dish by any means, but it is tasty!
Once it's done, dish it up and top with some FF mozzarella on top.  It's really good!  Who knew!

I think next time I'll add some garlic.  Not necessarily because it wasn't yummy but more because I add garlic and jalapenos to pretty much everything :)  This would be good over rice and it will still be gluten free.  Let me know if you try it!

We would love this recipe. Do you think I could use a sausage instead of beef?
