Three Ways To Transform Cauliflower Sandwich Thins Into Mouthwatering Pancake Stacks

With low carb diets on trend right now, folks are looking for new ways to enjoy some of their favorite carb-packed meals. When it comes to pancakes, there’s plenty of options that keep your diet intact but still let you satisfy that craving.

Each of these low-carb pancake recipes, for example, is made with Outer Aisle Gourmet Sandwich Thins. Made from Parmesan, egg, and cauliflower, they can play into both sweet and savory pancake stacks while keeping the carbs down.

These are a few different ways you can transform the sandwich thins into fun, flavorsome pancake breakfasts.

Churro Pancakes 

These pancakes evoke the flavors of churros with their mix of cinnamon and sugar coating each sandwich thin. They’re layered with Nutella and dulce de leche for an added hit of sweetness and flavor.

Ingredients

4 Outer Aisle Gourmet Cauliflower Sandwich Thins

1 tbsp butter

1/4 cup cinnamon

1/4 cup coconut sugar

1/2 cup Dulce de Leche

1/2 cup Nutella

Whipped Cream

Directions

Step 1

On a plate, mix cinnamon and sugar.

Step 2

In a medium frying pan, melt butter over medium heat. Place Cauliflower Sandwich Thin in pan and cook until toasty, about 30 seconds. Do the same with the other side. Continue until all Sandwich Thins are toasted.

Step 3

Place each butter-toasted, Sandwich Thin in cinnamon sugar mixture, coating both sides.

Step 4

Place one pancake on a plate. Spread the top with Nutella. Place another Sandwich Thin on top. Spread the top with dulce de leche. Repeat this for as many cakes as you’d like.

Step 5

Place a dollop of whipped cream on top pancake. Serve!

PB, Bacon, & Banana

Elvis Presley’s iconic sandwich combination is the inspiration for this tower of sandwich thin pancakes. This sweet, savory, and salty combo will hit your mouth with an orchestra of different sensations. While The King always enjoyed it as a sandwich, it’s just as good in pancake form.

Ingredients

3 Outer Aisle Gourmet Cauliflower Sandwich Thins

1/4 cup Peanut butter

1 Banana, sliced

5 slices bacon

Directions

Step 1

In a large frying pan, cook your bacon until done. Chop bacon.

Step 2

Remove most of the grease, leaving a small amount.

Step 3

Place Cauliflower Thins in pan with bacon grease, and lightly toast on each side.

Step 4

Remove Sandwich Thins to a plate. Spread peanut butter on top of a Sandwich Thin. Place sliced banana and bacon on top. Repeat with another layer.

Step 5

Garnish top pancake with more banana and chopped bacon.

Step 6

Melt peanut butter until it gets to a drizzly texture. Drizzle over pancake stack. Serve!

Berries & Cream 

The fresh, sweet, and tart flavors of the berries pair perfectly with the light whipped cream and crispy sandwich thin “pancakes” in this creation.

Ingredients

1 tbsp butter

3 Outer Aisle Gourmet Cauliflower Sandwich Thins

1 cup mixed berries

1/2 cup whipped cream

Maple syrup

Directions

Step 1

In a medium frying pan, melt butter over medium heat. Place Cauliflower Sandwich Thin in pan and cook until toasty, about 30 seconds. Do the same with the other side. Continue until all Sandwich Thins are toasted.

Step 2

Place one Sandwich Thin on a plate. Spread a layer of whipped cream on top of sandwich thin, and add your favorite berries. Repeat this for how many layers you want for your pancake stack.

Step 4

Place a dollop of whipped cream and more berries on the top pancake. Drizzle with syrup. Serve!

Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas Resurrects Elvis With Bacon Banana Peanut Butter Cannoli

bacon_cannoli-9701

Photo by Geoff Kutnick

It’s a shame Mr. Presley didn’t live to see all the culinary creations that were inspired from his infamous “Elvis sandwich,” because today, we’re all shook up about this Elvis-Inspired Fried Bacon Cannoli.

The rock-n-rollin’ cannoli comes from Chef Justin Cooper of Serendipity 3 in Caesars Palace, Las Vegas (speaking of, we are living for the fact that this King-inspired pastry came from a palace). To create such a divine dessert, Cooper strategically combined the flavors of deep-fried double-smoked Baker’s Bacon, banana chocolate cream filling, peanut butter, hot fudge, white and semi-sweet chocolates, and brûlée banana. Talk about a hunk of burnin’ love.

This work of art was created exclusively for Foodbeast by Chef Justin, but you can always request/beg him to throw it on the Serendipity 3 menu! In the meantime, why not go for a Bacon Weave Elvis Sandwich, Bacon Elvis Pop Tarts, Bacon Elvis Donuts, or good ol’ Elvis Bacon?

Quickly Turn Plain Peanut Butter Pop-Tarts into Bacon Elvis Tarts

Elvis-PopTarts

Half the charm of Pop-Tarts comes from the frosted glaze that covers practically every bite. Therein lies the problem with Peanut Butter Pop-Tarts which feature none of that deliciously sugary frosting. Nick from DudeFoods knows this all too well and felt something should be done to remedy the fact.

Not one to take things the way they are, he got to thinking of a way to upgrade his boring Peanut Butter tart into something with a bit more flash. Obviously with DudeFoods, it just has to involve bacon in some form or another.

Enter the Elvis theme of peanut butter, banana and bacon. Combining 1/2 a banana, a tablespoon of butter, 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, Nick whipped up a quick banana glaze. The chef then simply topped it off with strips of bacon.

No more plain looking Pop-Tarts.

Iconic Musicians Recreated Using Corn Flakes

Some might already argue that Drake is as soft as Corn Flakes, but now there’s an elegant visual of him in Corn Flake form, as well as of other music artists.

Artist Sarah Rosado masterfully took bits of cornflakes and recreated the profiles of iconic musicians of the past and present. From Michael Jackson, Elvis and John Lennon to current stars such as Drake, Beyonce and Lady Gaga, they are all carefully crafted to make you feel something beyond appreciation.

The detail put into these portraits is crazy, as Rosado crafts every eyebrow and hairstyle to a “t” and captures the essence of each musician’s noteworthy characteristics.

Elvis Bacon, Because Regular Bacon is Inadequate

elvis

Because regular bacon gets boring, Dude Foods has created Elvis Bacon. A take on the Elvis Sandwich, these are strips of bacon covered in a peanut butter glaze, and sprinkled with freeze-dried bananas.

Nick at Dude Foods has shown us some epic Elvis creations over the years, from the Pop Tart Elvis Burger to the Bacon Weave Elvis Sandwich. This one is a little less complicated, but looks just as Elvisey as the other creations.

For the peanut butter glaze, Nick used sugar, creamy peanut butter, milk, and vanilla. He then applied the glaze immediately after baking the strips of bacon.  Using a bag of pre-packaged freeze-dried bananas, he cut them into pieces and added them to the gloriously glazed bacon strips.

These could make for some next-level bacon cheeseburgers, or breakfast burritos.

This is a French Toast Reuben Nutella Elvis Sandwich, Because Bacon and Nutella, Duh

reubenelvis

Sometimes you need the right level of acidity and the perfect price point to put two and two together. Sometimes you just need a healthy dollop of Nutella and a few choice strips of bacon. Welcome to the Internet.

In a new series called “Don’t Eat That!” John of Neatorama has decided to test one of the internet’s most firmly held dogmas – that Nutella and bacon make everything better – by combining two sandwiches which probably should have never been combined, the Reuben and the Elvis.

He describes his ingredients:

“The Reuben sections, which embraced the Elvis portion like the wings of an angel escorting the King of Rock and Roll to Heaven, consisted of:

2 slices of rye bread dipped in the above mentioned French toast mix
4 slices of corned beef, each 1/4 of an inch thick
1 tablespoon of Thousand Island salad dressing
1/3 cup of sauerkraut
2 slices of Swiss cheese.”

For those of you keeping score at home, that’s a peanut butter, banana, bacon and Nutella sandwich surrounded by corned beef, Swiss cheese, Thousand Island and sauerkraut. Say it with me, all together now. Ewwwwwwww.

Because this is the internet, however, John reports the sandwich turned out to be “surprisingly edible,” and was particularly taken with the combination of bacon and nutella. Now all it needs is a tiny dash of Sriracha salt to be absolutely perfect.

‘Meat America,’ A Photo Series of American Culture [Re]imagined As Meat

In a photographic journey on par with Dorothea Lange’s “Dust Bowl,” Dominic Episcopo has graced us with “Meat America,” an epic chronicling of America’s obsession with meat. If you are what you eat, then America truly is made of meat.

In Dominic’s words, “Meat America is a state of mind, an eye-opening and artery-closing tour of America’s spirit of entrepreneurship, rebellion and positivity.”

1. Elvis: He likes his meat like he likes his love, tender.
