Sounds tasty! I've been meaning to try something like this but haven't yet. Be sure to tell us how it turns out...
I used them in ground beef in place of breadcrumbs to make meatballs! I added some egg beaters and a tad of diced onion with red peppers. they were good...
I need to order some puffs! Some meatballs and speghetti squash would really hit the spot!..
They make great breadcrumbs.
I shredd zucchini, salt and then drain. Place in a meatloaf pan and top with crushed parm puffs and LC herb garlic light cheese - bake until the cheese is melted and the zucchini is done. Yummy!..
I love to crush a packet of Medifast crackers and parm puffs and mix them together to sprinkle on top of halibut. So good!!!!!..
I tried the crushed cheese puffs on haddock for lunch today and it was really very good!..
I know I've seen several recipes that suggest how to use the Medifast meals as part of your L&G, but here's my question: if you use a Medifast meal as part of your L&G, how are you getting in your eating every 2 - 3 hours?.
Do you just split your L&G into two meals when you incorporate a Medifast meal into it?.
Thats my question! I would love to know the answer to this!!!!..
The only times I would use a Medifast meal with my L&G are 1.- if I needed to add more calories to meet my daily allowance, or 2.- sometimes on the weekends I actually get to sleep in and do not have time in the day to get the last meal in, then I combine the last meal with my L&G so I get all my calories/nutrients for the day. 3- using a Medifast meal to enhance a meal because an altrnative ingrediant is too high in carbs/calories or is not on plan. The Medifast ingrediant might be pricier than the alternative, but we are worth it! ;-).
Thanks to all those that responded about the cheese puffs as bread crumbs! I was going to try it toight, but I am torn between that and the cauli pizza which we made Friday and it was out of this world! I felt like I was cheating!..
Either the parm or chili puffs crushed and mixed with garlic powder and cayenne make a great item to crust chicken or turkey breast strips with. cook in a non stick pan, top with a little hot sauce and you have "buffalo" wings...
I usually only use 1/2 of a bag of the puffs for a "breading" for fish so I still have the other half for snack!..
