So, one of the favorite dishes in our house is Frikadellen. If you’re not familiar with the dish, it’s basically a German hamburger patty of sorts. Before I started Trim Healthy Mama, I would use traditional store-bought bread crumbs as a filler and to roll the patties in once formed. However, those are now out with THM. I had to find an alternative that would be on plan. After posting my question on the THM Beginners Facebook group (I highly recommend this group if you’re new to THM), I got several suggestions. I decided to toast up a Joseph’s Pita and use a bit of oatmeal. Once the pita was toasted, I put it in the Ninja. I added a bit of oatmeal, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Then I blended it until it was a fine ground powder.
1 pound ground beef
1-2 Joseph’s Pitas toasted and ground (you need about 1/4-1/2 cup)
1/2 small onion diced and sauteed or dried onion flakes (rehydrated)
1/4 cup almond milk (or other plan approved flavorless milk)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and form into small patties…any shape will work. Then, saute the patties on both sides in coconut oil and butter. Once they’re brown on both sides, transfer them into a dish and bake for 20-30 minutes until done.
Traditionally, I would roll the patties into additional bread crumbs before sauteeing them; however, I was a little afraid to do that since I hadn’t ever used a Joseph’s pita as bread crumbs. It didn’t affect the outcome at all.
