I don't like the tomato soup at all and I have a box still left of it. You know what that means... look for a recipe so I can make it edible! I have made a few grilled cheese sandwiches from it that turned out well using the sandwich maker, but I wanted to try a new recipe I found on the Medifast recipe forum. A Medifast member by the name of Valleygirl posted this recipe up for pizza bread. This is now my new fave way to use the tomato soup. I may even decide to order more because of this recipe LOL. There are a variety of ways you can enjoy this bread. One way is below:
They make wonderful pita type breads or a nice soft taco shell for your meats. I can already imagine this stuffed with taco meat! Yum! If you are missing bread, then this a great way to help that craving. My left overs I had for the past couple of days, which was the Spicy Beef and Vegetables, is pictured above. I just used a sundried tomato and mozzarella light laughing cow cheese wedge spread on the bread and stuffed it with the left overs. Pretty tasty!
This is the batter spread on parchment paper.
This is what it looks like when it is flipped over after 5 minutes. If you are adding cheese, then add it right after you flip it.
After 5 more minutes in the oven, it is all done! This is the laughing cow cheese wedge I spread on the bread. Actually, it is good with laughing cow cheese if you do not want to subtract from your lean using regular shredded cheese. I can see how this bread would make an excellent small pizza bread if you are craving pizza. It is soooooo good! I am definitely making this again!
Slightly adapted from Valley Girl at My Medifast
1 Cream of Tomato Soup (1 Meal)
1/4 tsp Baking Powder (1/2 Condiment)
2 tbsp Water
1/8 to 1/4 cup or 0.5 oz to 1 oz shredded cheese (subtract from your lean)
1 Light Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge (1/2 Healthy Fat)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with pam or use parchment paper. Combine soup, baking powder, seasonings and water. Spread the batter on prepared cookie sheet and form a circle. I wet my hands and used them to spread the batter because the batter kept sticking to my spoon. Bake for 5 minutes and then flip using a spatula. If you would like to add cheese, do it now after flipping. Stick the bread back in the oven for 5 more minutes. If using laughing cow cheese, spread it on when the bread is done baking. Enjoy!
1 Meal and 1/2 of a Condiment not including the Cheeses
Also, I just got this in from Etsy.com! It is a framed dry erase weekly menu by MLarsen Designs. It is 12 x 12 inches big and looks beautiful in my kitchen. It does come with a stand, but I decided to hang it instead. This is perfect for planning your weekly menus and hubby will know exactly what we are having each day of that week. No more, "Honey, what's for dinner?" every day LOL. You don't have to get one framed like this. You can always get any type of dry erase board you like and it would still work perfectly. I was always writing my menus down on paper and I always kept changing my mind on what to make so I had to rewrite everything! This is a life saver! I actually got the idea from Gerri (aka fluffyMOgirl) at Less of Me: Medifast Journey. She is a total complete organizer like me ha, ha! I saw that she had a dry erase board on her fridge that she uses to help her know what meats to lay out the night before. It also helps her plan her grocery list each week. Great idea! I love mine! If you haven't already checked out her blog, please do so! She just posted a "Must Try" recipe that I will definitely be trying soon! It is called Chicken Parmesan for Two! It looks so juicy and yummy! Check it out!
