There are scads of low carb "cheese crisp" recipes on the web, but more and more folks are seeking to reduce the fat in their low carb diet. Of course we love fat, but it can be reduced, if desired, thereby saving calories also. This easy low carb recipe is a good example. These chewy cheese bread rounds are versatile; perfect for snacking or making sandwiches. With a gluten-free option. Enjoy!
Preheat Oven to 350°. Spread a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie sheet or pizza pan, (or coat the surface with non-stick cooking spray.)
Combine all four ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir until well blended. Form into 6 rounded Tablespoon size balls and place 4" apart on cookie sheet. Using a piece of plastic wrap, press balls down to 4" wide rounds. Bake for 12-15 minutes until light golden brown. Cool on rack. Makes 6 flat bun size rounds, 1 net carb each, 49 calories and just 3 grams of fat.
NOTE: Any shredded hard cheeses may be used in combination. We used Sargento's Classic Mexican blend along with the sharp cheddar. Try experimenting to get your favorite mix of cheeses and seasonings, like Kraft 5 Italian Cheese Blend along with Italian seasonings, or Swiss and caraway seeds plus dried onion.
