Hi everyone,.

Since I couldn't eat my Chili or Stew anylonger.. Lol.. I have experimented on making a bread from them just like from creamy soups..

Here is my tastiest experiment so far:.


- Medifast Chili or Stew - 1pkg - mix it to a powder in a food processer/mixer. It's OK if there are crunchy pieces left - it will remind you of 7-grain breads!.

- 1/2 tsp baking powder.

- 1/2 tsp Molly McButter.

- 1 tsp shredded FF Mozarella Cheese.

- Mix all the dry increadients well in the cup..

- 3 Tbsp eggbeaters.

- 1 Tbsp Egg Beaters Egg Whites.

- Spray SPAM on small nonstick loaf pan (get few of them - good for meatloaf too)..

- bake in microwave for 2 minutes.

- Let it cool off. Cut on perimeter in 2 slices. Can refrigirate and eat same OR next day!.

- Great toasted (don't overtoast it). I either split it with my L&G OR eat with FF Cream Cheese.. Adding cheese gives it extra taste and texture... yam..

Comment #1

How much of our lean is deducted? also what about condiments?..

Comment #2

I am assuming you use the rubber mini loaf pans if if goes in the microwave?..

Comment #3

I used metal mini loafer! You can get them in any big grocery store (like Pathmark, Stop&Shop, Shoprite, etc) in your baking section. Looks something like - I use those for meatloafs as well..

As for ingridient count:.

- Medifast Chili or Stew - 1pkg = 1 Medifast meal.

- tsp baking powder = 1 Condiment.

- tsp Molly McButter = Condiment.

- 1 tsp shredded FF Mozarella Cheese - considered as Additional Fat (NOT counted as a FAT serving; you are allowed for 1 Tbsp of shredded Cheese).

- 3 Tbsp eggbeaters.

- 1 Tbsp Egg Beaters Egg Whites.

2 cups (32 Tablespoons) of EggBeaters is 1 L&G meal, thus 4 Tbsp = 1/8 of your L&G..

Thanks sooo much... I've got a pile of minestrone and stew I have to deal with...

PS.. And thanks for the links to all the products very clever!!!..

Comment #5

OMG! I just made this with the minestrone and it is SO GOOD!!! Like good whole grain bread, wow! I toasted it with a thin slice of LF cheddar. wow, wow, wow!.

Thank you, I am thrilled!!..

Comment #6

This sounds great and a good way to get rid of the nasty chili! Has anyone tried it with the even nastier Crab soup?..

Comment #7

Yes Sue!.

I did it with Chili, Stew and Crab soup!!.

Even if you don't mix it to a thin powder - with little pieces bread would taste as whole-grain - crunchy.

I also couldn't stand any of the above mentioned soups - so bread is great for me, especially since we are not allowed to eat bread! And either by itself with creemcheese OR splitting it with your L&G - tastes like a home-made fresh bread...

Comment #8

The only thing is I don't have a small blender or bullet just a Big blender if I mixed this ingredients in there most would stick to the bottom of the blender... Hmmm..

Comment #9

Oh.. no!!! You mix only dry ingridients in mixer!!!.

Then put everything in a regular cup, add cheese & eggbeaters. Mix with regular teaspoon! Kind of beat it up. Spray PAM in mini loafer. Place that evenly in mini loafer (tip: wet your finger a little with water and spread it; it doesn't stick to your hands than)...

Comment #10

Wowdolls, what a great idea. I've made breads with the Cream-ofs (tomato is my fave). I look forward to trying it with the chili & beef stew .... clever!.


Comment #11

Yep I made it in a blender just fine... as you say only mix the dry stuff in there... I didn't have a loaf pan so I use a little custard dish sprayed with Pam, worked great!..

Comment #12

What did I do wrong. Followed the recipe, but mine came out hard like a hockey puck. It tasted really good, but sooo hard. Linda..

Comment #13

No idea - it comes up very soft. I really beat up the ingridients well. Maybe your microwave needs less timing? I did it for 2 minutes. Try with 1.5 min? Also let it cool off and then your can put it in fridge for future use. Toast it for 40-60 seconds...

Comment #14

Auntlinda..I find the longer you cook, the harder it gets... so do less time or lower the power a little on your micro....

I just made a great, healthy Egg McMuffin with this!.

Scrambled 1/4 c eggbeaters in butter Pam, toasted the "muffin" with 1 slice low-fat Amercian cheese on it... YUM! All the buttery eggy goodness and NONE of the guilt... This is going to be my new breakfast for a while...

Comment #15

I made the bread lastnight from the chili and I must of done something wrong, it was as hard as a rock, so I tried again and I didint like the smell of it. Soooo sick of chili...

Comment #16

I made bread last night and it was real good. Kinda reminded me of rye bread. Thanks for the reciepe...

Comment #17

Thanks wowdolls and Gatita, Will try again, using less time in microwave. Linda..

Comment #18

Enjoying my bread made from chili right now with a wedge of Laughing Cow cream cheese. Two minutes is definitely too long to microwave (at least in mine). Mine was overdone in 1:30, but still edible. My mini loaf pan wasn't mini enough for this recipe, so I used a shallow, but wide, mug and that worked just fine. It turned out like a hearty English muffin...

Comment #19

I can't thank you enough for this recipe tastes like those grain breads and I just dab a bit of salsa on it Hmmmmmmm.


Comment #20

I am new and confused. How can you guys make stuff out of these packets with all these extra ingredients like cheese? Are you somehow counting the extras as condiments? I am confused about how to make all these recipes and still be on program?..

Comment #21

Hello confused one.

Of course we count!.

Please see post #5 in this thread - - there I explain what counts for what - you will have to just be within of what is allowed..

Believe me - in the beginning everyone is confused, but then you get a hand of it - I don't even think when I cook same dishes - know exactly what I need and how much.

I highly recommend joining one of the teams in our Clubhouse category - and get more team help and/or PM members if you have any questions - we are all helpful here...

Comment #22

All I have to say is THANK YOU FOR THIS FABULOUS RECIPE! I had it yesterday and it was great! A little on the dry side, so next time I might jazz it up a bit more with a little salsa!.

I made one for today out of MBS oatmeal with a little davinci cinnamon syrup in place of 1 T of EB and am anxious to try it later this morning!.

Definitely a do again and again.....!..

Comment #23

Is it possible to use this recepie in the oven? Has anyone tried it in the oven to make a loaf of bread with several packets? Please PM me and let me know if you have. Thanks...

Comment #24

I had to modify the recipe for what I had. I don't use eggbeaters or cheese..

-Chili soup packet, 1/2 t. baking powder, 1/2 t. garlic powder- ground up all in blender.

- Put into bowl.

-Added 1 tablespoon of nonfat cottage cheese, 1 whole egg, plus 1 egg white.

-Sprayed little square pyrex dish with Pam and poured in the dough.

Microwaved on high for 2 minutes (GE Profile with turntable worked perfectly for the time). The size/shape of dish made a perfectly sized 'ciabatta' bun..

I sliced bread in half to make a bun, grilled ground turkey patty, used a bit of fat free sour cream w/shredded basil mixed in it, salt, pepper, added lettuce- was pretty good to break-up the monotony. Half was filling, so I broke-up the meal and will eat the other half tomorrow, plus it made it more OP..

I will try this with the Crab soup next time and salmon- I bet that would be good..

Thanks so much for the bread info- I would have never 'thunk' it!!..
