Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Low Carb Patty Melt

I've been on a low carb kick again for the past 10 days.  I'm 8.5 pounds down as of this morning.  The first couple of days I felt pretty grumpy.  haha  But the last couple of days I have gotten past that.  Feeling pretty good and excited about the weight loss.  I've posted about this bread before, but it's been awhile, so I thought I'd post this simple and humble meal tonight.  HERE IS THE ORIGINAL POST AND RECIPE for the low carb bread.

And now for the patty melts...  I used ground venison for these burgers, seasoned with Worcestershire Sauce and S&P.  Grilled up on the Mini BGE, with one of the patties elongated for my burger.  :)

I elongated my burger to fit my low carb bread.  My wife used regular John Herst bread for her patty melt, so her burger was round (as was the leftover burger).  The burgers were topped with homemade Chipotle Mayo and Chopped Onions.  Would have put some other stuff in there, like pickles, but we didn't have too much in the fridge.  Still pretty good though.  :)  Especially for low carb.  The salad did have some yellow and red grape tomatoes from our garden, but I figured that was pretty minimal.

The patty melts were simply fried up on the stove top in butter, like an ordinary grilled cheese sandwich.  The low carb bread definitely makes this lifestyle a little bit easier.
