  1. Mushroom Bombs! Ive made these before, I just didnt have a
    name for them. Check out Danas first recipe, fun, fast, easy
    and tasty. Then wash them down with her recipe for Sangria.
    A great combo for deck lounging.

    Mushroom Bombs

    These are so simple and so wonderful-count on them to
    disappear in a flash! A Lowcarbezine! reader sent in this
    idea, but sadly, I don't have his or her name. Whoever you
    are, thank you!

    1 pound (500 grams) fresh mushrooms 2 16-ounce (450-gram)
    packages bacon (the cheaper the better)

    At least 30 minutes before assembling your Mushroom Bombs,
    start a bunch of wooden toothpicks soaking in water. Now,
    get your fire going-you'll want a medium-low fire, since
    the bacon grease will definitely cause flare-ups. Wrap each
    mushroom in a strip of bacon, and anchor it with a
    toothpick thrust clear through. Wrap all your mushrooms,
    then set them on the grill. Every few minutes turn the
    mushrooms, and be sure you have a squirt bottle on hand for
    those flare-ups! Grill until the bacon is done. Serve as an
    appetizer, or as a side with a steak. The number of
    Mushroom Bombs you get will depend on how many mushrooms
    per pound, of course. Figure this is enough for at least 8
    people, and maybe as many as 12, depending on what else you
    serve. Assuming 8 people, each will get about 3 grams of
    carbohydrate and 1 gram of fiber, for a usable carb count
    of 2 grams; 35 grams of protein, which makes this hearty
    enough for a main course.
