Egg and Bacon Brunch Wraps
Canadian bacon, hot pepper sauce, and baby spinach make for a winning way to start the day!

Ingredients
1 cup cholesterol-free egg substitute
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 slices Canadian bacon, diced
1/2 teaspoon hot red pepper sauce
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 (7-inch) red chile tortillas or whole wheat tortillas
1 cup baby spinach leaves

Directions
Yield: 4 servings

1 – Preheat oven to 325°F. Combine egg substitute, cheese, bacon, red pepper sauce, and pepper in bowl. Pour into 9-inch glass baking dish sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray. Bake 15 minutes, or until egg substitute is set. Remove from oven.

2 – Place tortillas in oven 1 minute or until soft and pliable. Cut egg substitute into quarters. Place 1 wedge in center of each tortilla. Top with 1/4 cup spinach leaves. Fold bottom of tortilla to center; fold sides to center to enclose filling and serve immediately.

Note: Canadian bacon comes from the loin of the pig. It is much more meaty and has less fat than traditional bacon. As a result, it tastes more like ham in flavor. In order to reduce the sodium in this recipe, try meatless bacon which is usually made with soy products.

Salmon Sandwiches with Spicy Apricot Sauce
If you’re ready for something a little more exciting than hamburgers and hotdogs, you’ll want to try these fresh seafood sandwiches…

Preparation time: 5–10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes.

Nonstick cooking spray
Aluminum foil
1 pound skinless Atlantic salmon, cut into 4 square fillets

4 lettuce leaves (leaf lettuce)
4 tablespoons low-sugar apricot preserves
2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce (Asian style)

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1 sandwich

1 – Heat indoor or outdoor grill. Spray nonstick cooking spray on a piece of aluminum foil large enough to hold the four fillets.

In a small bowl, stir together apricot preserves and sweet chili sauce, then spoon approximately 1 heaping tablespoon onto each salmon fillet; add the top half of each bun to complete.

Low-Carb Cauliflower “Potato” Salad for Diabetics

Ingredients
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes.
Chilling time: 2 hours

1 tablespoon pickle relish
1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions
Yield: 8 servings

* Remove leaves and core of cauliflower. Break florets into bite-size pieces, and cut stem into bite-size pieces as well, if desired. Total yield should be 4 cups of cauliflower pieces. Fill a medium saucepan 2/3 full of water and bring to a boil. Add cauliflower and cook 8–10 minutes until soft but not mushy. Drain cauliflower in a colander and rinse under cold water for 1–2 minutes to stop the cooking process. Drain well. Blot pieces with paper towel to remove excess moisture.
