The Soft Pretzel:  My Personal Favorite!

 My Size: Yes I made those pretzels in my kitchen.  

The EBQ Scramble:

Just mix some EBQ into your scrambled eggs and throw whatever else you want in there. 

EBQ Mac n Cheese

Boil 16 oz of macaroni noodles and drain water

Add a pint of EBQ and stir.  I prefer the Mild version of EBQ for this recipe, move up to a hotter version to add more spice. 

The EBQ Cheesesteak - Compliments of the Dunleavy Family

1 Pound of shaved beef or chicken

1 White Onion Sliced

1 tsp Oregano

1/2 tsp Salt

1 tsp Ginger

EBQ to taste

Sautee onions and oregano (I add a little olive oil), add beef or chicken and stir. When meat is cooked to temperature add salt and ginger.  Finally add EBQ to desired taste, for me it's 8 oz creating a 2:1 ratio of meat to cheese.  

Low Carb Options:

No-Carb Pepperoni Chips:

Put a double paper towel on a plate throw some pepperonis on there and microwave them.  My microwave takes 3 minutes.  No-Carb and they do the trick.
