Sausage oatmeal pancakes Simply Filling +2pp

For some reason I just think sausage and pancakes go together :)

So I came up with this recipe.

Sausage pancakes with sugar free syrup Simply Filling +2pp

2 lilydale turkey breakfast sausages cut into half length wise
1/2c quick oats uncooked
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4c 0% plain Greek yogurt
1 large egg or 2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp splenda baking granular or whatever sweetener you use
sugar free pancake syrup

I had previously cooked the sausage so I just cut them length wise in half.

I put all ingredients except the sausage and the syrup in my bullet.

Made 4 long shaped pancakes in pan then put a sausage on top of each one.
Cook until bottom is browned then flip over.
Top with sugar free syrup

Cheesy bacon chips simply filling + 3pp

I was excited when I saw this recipe from Weight Watcher Girl for bacon cheese fries. Since I'm in Canada and don't often have the same food options I usually end up tweaking recipes I see. Also I do Simply Filling so I change things for that reason as well :)

This is not Simply Filling recipe but potatoes are Simply Filling and the oil is out of my daily oils so it just ends up costing me 3pp which I think is a bargain. Also I don't use bacon bits so I used pre-cooked low sodium bacon and light cheese.

1 medium sized potato I cut it into a chip shape with a mandoline but you can cut it into fries
1 oz/30g light cheese 2pp
2 slices of president's choice low sodium pre-cooked bacon chopped 1pp
1 tsp olive oil
salt/garlic powder/pepper
non stick spray

I put the cut potato and rinsed them off with water. Dry them and then put them in a bag with the olive oil and shook the bag so the olive oil was on all the potato.
Put the potato slices on a baking sheet you've sprayed with non stick spray
Sprinkle with the salt/garlic powder/pepper
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 12 minutes then turn over and cook another 12 minutes now the time depends on the temperature of your oven and how thinly you cut your potato. Keep your eye on them.
Take out of the oven, arrange the potato on top of each other and sprinkle the cheese and the chopped bacon on
Put back in oven just to melt everything

Apple berry cobbler Simply Filling

Loved this! The husband said it was amazing :)

Apple berry cobbler simply filling
This made 2 ramekins each was 1 portion

I took the blueberry scone recipe and omitted the blueberries and put it on top of apple/berries :)

1 small apple chopped smallish so they'd cook faster
8 frozen strawberries
1/3c leftover sugar free cranberry sauce

I put them all in a small pan. Of course you could use any berries you have on hand. Heated them until the strawberries were thawed and the apple starting to cook.

Divide between to ramekin dishes mine are the 1 cup size.

I then made this blueberry scone recipe but left out the blueberries. I took 1/3 of the recipe out and divided it between the ramekins and baked in a 350 oven for 25 minutes.

Then I added a few frozen blueberries to the rest of the recipe and poured it into a small glass baking dish to make 4 blueberry scones for later :)
