    Sara Lee Giveaway

    Sara Lee Deli has recently taken steps to ensure their sliced-to-order turkey, ham and chicken deli meats are gluten-free.  In addition to being gluten-free, the deli meats do not contain any hormones, MSG, artificial flavors, fillers and have 0 grams of trans fat.

    Below are three recipes that are made using the gluten-free sliced-to-order deli meats.  All of them sound good, but I can’t wait to make the Simple Spicy Peanut & Chicken Stir Fry!

    Country Scrambler*

    (Serves 1)

    Ingredients:

    • 3 egg whites
    • 1 egg
    • 2-3 slices of Sara Lee® Deli Sliced-to-Order Virginia Brand Ham; roughly chopped
    • 1/2 cup low fat or skim cheese; grated
    • 2 Tablespoons 2% milk
    • 1 Tablespoon green onions; chopped
    • 1 Tablespoon butter flavored non-stick cook spray
    • salt
    • pepper

    Directions:

    Whisk eggs, milk, dash of salt and pepper in a small bowl.  Set aside.

    Apply non-stick butter flavored cook spray to frying pan over medium heat. Add eggs and let cook until they begin to set.  Using a heat-resistant spatula, push the set eggs into the center of the pan allowing the uncooked eggs to run underneath.  Continue doing this until they are almost completely cooked.

    Add in ham, onions and cheese and give a quick stir to distribute the ingredients throughout.  Remove from heat and stir until ham is warmed and cheese is melted.  Serve immediately.
