After a scary morning - I received a webpage stating my blog had been deleted - I'm back. Here is Hearth Healthy Monday:
Heart Healthy Web link - Teeth and Heart Disease (same subject different link)
TIP- Make the vegetables and grains the focus of your meal, and use meat as the side dish.
Heart Healthy Recipe:
8 slices turkey bacon cooked until almost done, drain, and cut in half
1 small onion chopped fine (I use dehydrated onion, rehydrated - easier and I actually like the taste of them)
3/4 C (3oz) finely shredded reduced fat sharp Cheddar cheese
1 T prepared horseradish
1 T plain nonfat yogurt
8 slices french bread lightly toasted (3/4" thick)
2 small fresh tomatoes
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
fresh oregano (Opt)
Mix onion, cheese, horseradish, and yogurt. Place toasted bread slices on a baking sheet; spread cheese mixture evenly and all the way to the edges of the bread. Cut each tomato into 4 slices and place one tomato slice and two pieces of bacon on each slice of bread. Broil 5 1/2 inches from heat 2 - 2 1/2 minutes or until cheese melts and bacon is crispy. Watch carefully. Sprinkle with green onions and fresh oregano.
