Here is great meal suggestion from Dana Carpenders 15 Minute Low-Carb Recipes book, which I picked-up this weekend. It’s a great resource for tasty and quick low-carb meals.

Apple Sausage Burgers

  • ½ medium onion, peeled and cut in a few chunks
  • ½ Granny Smith or other crisp, tart apple, cut into a few chunks (no need to peel it)
  • 1 ½ pounds of pork or turkey sausage, hot or mild
  • t teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Preheat your electric grill (i.e., George Foreman grill) or outdoor grill.

Put the onion and apple in a food processor with the s-blade in place, and pulse until they’re chopped to a medium consistency. Add sausage, thyme, sage, and pepper, and pulse until it’s all well-blended.

Form into 4 burgers, and put them on the grill. Cook for 7 minutes or until the juices run clear,

Yield: 4 servings, each with 7 grams of carbohydrates and 1 gram of fiber, for a total of 6 grams of usable carbs and 20 grams of protein.
