OK, this is completely different, but here it goes...This is not a Trick, it is a Treat!
My husband and I are on a low carb diet, so that means no bread. Which, when making casseroles, means no bread crumbs to grace the top...until now.
I love these Mission Carb Balance Tortillas. They are only 6 net carbs per tortilla, and are delicious. We use them for wraps, enchiladas, anything you can do with a tortilla. I have made tortilla chips and shells for taco salads also.
I decided to try an experiment. It worked beautifully!
I took one tortilla, cut it up, and dried it. I just left it to sit out overnight, but you could do it in the oven also.
I broke up the pieces, and ground them in my food processor.
One tortilla made about 1/2 c of crumbs. Regular bread crumbs are about 20 carbs per 1/3 c, these are 6 carbs per 1/2 cup. It doesn't sound like much, but those nasty little carbs add up.
I added the crumbs to some butter, and some Italian Seasoning.
I made Baked Sour Cream Chicken and topped them with my crumb mixture. It was awesome!!!! The crumbs provided the crunch that we love on a casserole! (PS: How do you like my Halloween kitchen in the background?)
Stay hungry, my friends!
And, for the kiddies...Have a SAFE AND FUN HALLOWEEN!!!
