Tasty Low Carb Snacks: Pigs In A Blanket (Without Blankets!)


 

Pigs In A BlanketPigs In A Blanket have always been a favorite at my house, and I had all the ingredients (including “blankets” lol – Crescent Rolls) leftover from the holidays where I made some for the kids.

Last night I was looking for something quick & easy to make, and decided to give “pigs without blankets” a try.

They made for great tasty low carb snacks!!

This is actually what I had for dinner. It was super easy of course. I used lil smokies, as you can see in the pictures, and cut colby/jack cheese into small sticks. I used aluminum foil on the baking sheet, for easy cleanup, and I smeared butter on the foil first – to make sure they didn’t stick and were easy to lift after cooked:

This is a great way to make “cheese chips” too, which also make fun & tasty low carb snacks!

You can see an example of a “cheese chip” in the picture below at the bottom left:

I prefer them cooked a little more crisp, but that only takes a few more minutes in the oven. I threw all this on the baking sheet, tossed it in the over at about 400 degrees, and just cooked it until done to suit me. Dinner in minutes! I added a serving of Cottage Cheese on the side just to balance out the salty/greasy food – which made for a great plate to sit down and enjoy a movie last night. 😉

    Try making cheese chips in the microwave and cool them on a paper towel. They’ll be light and crispy… Great for dipping salsa!

    What is the carb count?

    oh my…..looks delicious…love lil smokies. I was surprised the carbs in cottage cheese, when I was reading a carb chart today.

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Barbara 🙂 I only use Daisy Brand cottage cheese. It has the fewest ingredients of any I’ve found on the shelf! It is 4 carbs per serving, which isn’t bad at all!

    What temp please?

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Sharon 🙂 I bake these at 350 or 375, that’s what I bake most things at. I’m assuming that’s the right temp to use, lol – I’m not real kitchen savvy. 😉
