Anyway, I missed my breads, sweats and especially fruits and vegetables. As a result, Atkins never became a lifestyle for me. But not all that came from my experience was negative. In fact, some of it was down right fantastic.
For instance, I created some really fantastic new meals like my Reuben-inspired corned beef skillet. It’s a great comfort food that I modified just a bit to make it even tastier. Here’s the recipe:
Corned Beef Skillet
Layer corned beef luncheon meat on the bottom of a greased 6” skillet (I like to use just a dash of olive oil to grease it). Cover and cook at medium heat for 1 minute.
Drizzle maple syrup over corned beef. Cover and cook for 1 minute.
Cover corned beef with sauerkraut (Silverfloss is my favorite brand, it has a great authentic German taste). Top with two slices of deli cut Swiss cheese. Cover and cook for 1 minute.
