I’ve decided to ask my readers to submit ideas for names for this recipe.  The original recipe that inspired me was from the Joy of Cooking: 75th Anniversary Edition – 2006 and was titled “Eggs Baked in Bacon Rings” –  a descriptive, but very boring title! I’ve tweaked the original recipe a bit, but feel it needs a more interesting name.  That’s where you come in – please submit your recipe title suggestions to me (via the Comments section below), by midnight on May 8, 2012. Then, I’ll have my son and husband vote on the best title and announce the winner in a post on Wednesday, May 9th! You may wish to make the recipe first to give you even greater inspiration in creating a title for it.

When we learned that my son could not eat garlic, we found that we needed to clean out the spice cabinet of quite a few items.  This also meant that I had to create my own spice mixes for certain common items we like to eat, like taco seasoning.  I adapted a recipe I found in a diabetic cookbook and came up with the following mix.  It doesn’t produce the dark red-colored meat like store-bought taco seasonings do, but it does taste really good.  This amount of mix will season up to 1 1/2 lbs. of ground beef.

Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix (Nick Rating = 2 Thumbs Up!)

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp granulated onion

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp cornstarch

Stir dry ingredients together in small bowl.  Add to browned beef along with 3/4 c. of water.  Simmer until most of water has evaporated.

In addition to being unable to eat casein or gluten, my son cannot eat garlic either! This makes certain recipes a bit tricky, especially pasta which is a staple in our household. I experimented with a marinara sauce recipe and came up with the following, which we serve over either brown rice noodles or corn noodles. (Our favorite noodles are from Trader Joe’s!)
