WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD

I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected.

AMISH BREAKFAST CASSEROLE

8 slices of whole-wheat bread, cubed
1 lb bulk pork sausage, fried, crumbled, and drained
6 eggs
2 cups fat-free milk
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp dried mustard
1 lb of grated cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper, optional

Put bread in the bottom of a casserole dish. In a separate bowl, beat eggs and add milk, onion, salt, pepper (if using) and mustard. Sprinkle sausage and cheese over the bread. Slice butter over the cheese and pour the egg mixture over all. Bake in a medium heat oven (325 degrees) for about 45 minutes.
