    Like one of the other ladies, I find that my Hubs who doesn't low carb loves this served with a salad and wraps.

          I made it and halved the recipe for my husband and me. It was great! My husband is not on keto and had a slice of garlic bread with it. I thought it tasted really good.

              What type of ground beef did you use or could it be substituted with ground turkey?

            How do you keep from totally overlooking the meat base?

              Sounds tasty, but I'd have to get way more slices out of it considering my daily protein is supposed to be 50 g

                Not really, ONE slice is almost 40 grams of protein, so have 2 :) and you'll exceed your goal. I have to have much more protein than 50 grams. Also Fage Greek yogurt (zero fat) has almost the same amount of protein and it comes in 5oz single serve cups.

                My settings might make my macros different from yours (2 meals a day in a 6 hour window). But I’m seeing 39.5 g of protein in one slice, for one meal. Are you eating only one meal a day? If I eat the cucumber salad with it for this meal, and add the breakfast, I get over 80 grams of protein for the day, way over recommendations. Just add a deviled egg appetizer and you’d be good if you are one OMAD. If you set carb manager to fix the recipes to YOUR macros, it tries to adjust the recipe to provide what you need for that meal and makes a suggestion if it can.
