Baked Omelette with Ham and Gruyere
« on: 02 May 2013, 01:11:34 PM »
Might try this for brekkie or lunch at the weekend.

http://www.againstallgrain.com/2012/12/28/baked-omelette-with-ham-and-gruyere/

There are quite a few recipes on the website. I have had a skim through and most of them look to be lowish carb-wise.

Oh my goodness, does this ever look delicious.  You have an advantage over me however as I've never had Gruyere.  Is this considered one of the 'specialty' cheeses?

I see a lot of use made of almond milk & almond flour but noticed that my B half's BG goes up when he has ALMONDS, Would the milk or flour do the same. Only a learner at the lower carb game but already know that almonds are out for my husband.
By the way, gruyere has a sweetish, nutty flavour and is delish!

Gruyere melts beautifully and is really luxurious tasting in any cooked dish such as Dauphinoise potatoes.  It's Swiss so it may be considered a speciality cheese in the US, though not particularly in the UK.

Kat, I find that if I eat a handful of whole almonds they will raise my BG, but curiously if I eat a slice of cake or a bun made out of ground almonds it has very minimal effect.    I've never seen any reason to use Almond milk.

I use the unsweetened almond milk since my stomach dislikes cow milk. It's pretty much carb free,doesn't affect bgs and i'd need to drink a huge amount to take any insulin for it.

It's available in all supermarkets this side of the pond. You can substitute Emmental, Jarlsberg, Comte, Beaufort etc.

Raw almonds are about 11% carbs so much better to have walnuts or brazils for snacking. The Alpro brand almond or hazelnut milks are both 3% carbs so a bit less than full fat or semi skimmed cow's milk.

Remember that if you are cooking with a mixture of carbs and additional fat rather than eating just raw nuts, the fat content will slow down the effect of the carbs.

By the way, anyone shop in Asda. Have a look at their Smart Price gammon joints. I bought one out of curiosity and now buy it all the time! Not at all salty, roast it, gas 6, (don't know what that is in elec without getting my little book out) About 1.5 hours and it is delicious, and economical.

Once again, thank you all for your advice, will not be afraid to try almond flour now but perhaps give the milk a miss unless I am making a milk based dish, whatever that might be! Not gone looking for any yet!

Make your own cheese sauce for cauliflower cheese, broccoli cheese or my favourite celeriac cheese.

I buy Lidl gammon joints when they are on offer (1kg for £3.99) and boil them in cider with bay leaves, peppercorns, cloves, a small onion and a carrot.  Does us two meals + leftovers for sandwiches. 

If you want to try cooking with almonds a cake is a good start.  We have a pound cake recipe on our archive forum here http://www.diabetes-support.org.uk/forum/Blah.pl?m-1281534443/  If you look in the dessert section of the recipe section over there then you will find lots of variations on it http://www.diabetes-support.org.uk/forum/Blah.pl?b-805/
I've made ginger, chocolate, lemon and banana versions of it (Banana version is here in this forum http://diabetes-support.org.uk/diabetesforum/index.php/board,15.0.html).  Remember when baking with Splenda you need more moisture in the mix because you don't get heated sugar turning to moisture.  Hence the yoghurt in the recipe.  I tend to use the Lidl full fat greek yoghurt which comes in big tubs cos hubby eats tons of it we always have some in.

Just has this for lunch and very nice it was too. Made do with what I already had so I made a one person portion this way -

2 eggs
30g cheddar cheese, finely cubed (saves getting the grater dirty !)
30g chopped up garlic sausage
30ml hazelnut milk
pinch of salt
good shake of white pepper
tiny pinch of nutmeg

Baked at 350/Mark 4 for 40min.

I'll try it in a pan next time as I like my omelettes to be well browned.

It looks jolly tasty!  If you did it in a frying pan you could finish it off under the grill.

That's what I normally do.
I also add a few bigger bits of cheese so that they get fried until brown and a bit crispy.
