My Unleavened Bread Meal Plan

Choosing meals during unleavened bread is certainly easier now that we are gluten free. However, there are some things, like muffins and Just Like Grandmas Rolls that I really miss!

To make things simple this week, I came up with this easy plan and I would like to share it with you in case you are also looking for some inspiration!

Warm Chia Porridge (3 times this week) with chicken breakfast sausages
Fat Stripping Frappa (2 times this week)
Oatmeal with Maple Extract and Pecans for my fat (2 times this week)

Loaded Fotato Soup (2 times this week)
Sesame Chicken Noodles (2 times this week)
Salad with Tuna and EVOO/Balsamic dressing

Skinny chocolate

Glorious Glycine pudding
1/2 serving oatmeal (I am trying to add some carbs before bed to see if it will help me sleep better)

Patty Melt, melt my heart Low Carb, THM S, Allergy friendly!

***This post does contain affiliate links, thank you for your support**

You are SO welcome!!
                                                                            Ha ha!

Yes, this is a beautiful little allergy friendly patty melt. My household was in patty melt heaven when I made these ones. Oh yes, I am Rock Star Mom right now. :)

These little babies are egg free (of course), can be nut free with a little tweak on my recipe, wheat free, can be dairy free, gluten free too!

Boy oh boy, I am so thankful to have a diet plan that includes Patty Melts!

I truly hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!

Patty Melts, Melt my heart!

Multiple Servings for family

Ingredients needed:
Just Like Grandmas Rolls
2 Teaspoons Caraway Seeds

1.5-2 pound extra lean ground beef
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper

1-2 Large onions, sliced into strips
butter or coconut oil for sauteeing

Swiss cheese slices for those who can have dairy

For the burger buns, I use my Just Like Grandmas Rolls recipe found HERE.

*To make them nut free, just sub flax meal for the nut flour called for, I do it all the time and it works GREAT!

** To make these have more of a rye type flavor, I added 2 teaspoons of caraway seeds to the dough! That's my only tweak! They are super yummy! I will probably do this for regular sandwich buns now and then as well! Don't skip it, it adds such a fabulous flavor!

For the burgers:
I used 1.5-2 pounds of extra lean ground beef
2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste

Combine burger ingredients, don't over mix, form into slider size burger patties and grill in a fry pan.

I use this scooper to get a uniform size for both my buns and my burgers:


Grill the onions, I used one large onion, although my family had wished there was more. Since we are supposed to watch the amount of onion in an S meal, I used just the one, but next time I will make two large onions and let them load up.

I just sliced my onion into strips, sauteed them in butter, but refined coconut oil would be a great non dairy option. I did overcook mine a bit...so keep an eye on yours!

Last, I used 1/4 slice of swiss cheese on each burger for those who could have dairy. For those that cant, they just enjoyed them without the cheese.

These really are a keeper of a recipe. Satisfying, home cooked goodness.

With Joy ~ Tina :)
