or someone that doesn't want to have to cook every meal three times a day to get the right calories! heehee I meant to use turkey but the pork butt roast was on sale this week! I wanted to make enough to freeze so I could have a cup or two a day for a couple weeks, just pull out and heat up! SO GOOD! Cut even more calories by doing it with the original turkey and instead of some of the sauces add some more veggies and maybe some low fat no broth salt! the peppers and onions carry it a long way!!!Submitted by ARIESSPARROW
These are all my kids favorites and every time I have taken them to an event or given them away, I have been hounded for the recipe. Even people that HATE pumpkin EVERYTHING have told me that they couldn't believe how awesomely yummy and cakey and perfect these are! Many think they are a lot better the second day after sitting in the fridge! I love them even without the frosting, which cuts about 50 calories from them, or with low fat cream cheese frosting!Submitted by ARIESSPARROW
This is my take on an old, normally fried naughty no no! lol i crave these all the time, and after falling off the diet wagon, i have been on a mission to find some yummier diet alternatives to fish filets and chicken with broccolli and a side salad! heehee I think these really deliver on flavor and I have added as many veggies I have found it hard to eat a ton of in other ways! these are only about 150calories each, and i really over stuffed most of them, sloppy with juice coming out! hahaha i probably could have made another twenty and done them all nice and tiny like restauraunt egg rolls but since the wrapper is the most calorie prone thing in these, i like the idea of more filling to less wrapper a lot better!
You can have one for a snack, or a couple with a salad, to three for a whole, filling meal! They really are quite dense and delectable, I also encourage experimenting...you can add any vegi to these, i didn't taste any one of them seperately, it was so seasoned and delcious, i didn't add any salt because i used full flavor soy sauce which already has a ton of sodium, but you can always use low sodium soy sauce to cut that down, tho it doesn't taste as good to me. Thier ares some decent salt substitutes out there!
some other great hints....
Add only one or the other, fish or chicken to cut the calories per by just a bit!
Make them vegitarian but omitting the meat all together because their isn't even any broth or oyster sauce in my recipe!
use other kinds of fish and meat! Ground turkey would have been a decent alternative, just remember to cook the meat in the soy sauce and use a ton of black pepper because it tends to be bland otherwise.
when heating these up, they will get a bit soggy in the microwave, but baking them again to reheat in the toaster oven or regular oven on 375 for about 10 or 15 makes them so crispy and they taste even better after a day when the flavors have had longer to mix!
Try these with a little soy sauce or your favorite low fat dipping sauce!
If you don't have time, or you are taking them with to work so you can't bake them over for the crispyness, they taste good microwaved, cut up and added to a salad plend with some duck sauce, sweet n sour, or your favorite low fat dressing! or with brown rice! THat makes it equally easy to cook on the weekend and take a long all week to work, so you can stay on track!
TO SAVE IN PREP TIME- you can use a bag of coleslaw mix and also buy your other veggies you would like pre grated or sliced! same with your meat!Submitted by ARIESSPARROW
