Last night I decided to try a new twist, with tuna and cheddar. It turned out absolutely delicious. What a nice filling treat, and a very tasty way to enjoy Laughing Cow Cheese Spread, which is my newest low carb food addiction! lol.
1 Cup Almond Meal/Flour (12 Net Carbs)
1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese (4 Net Carbs)
1 Can of Tuna
2 Tablespoons Butter, melted
Garlic Salt to taste
If you’re eating for one you may want to cut this recipe in half. I used about 1/3 of the batter (around 5 net carbs) to make 5 pieces, so it comes out to around 1 net carb per piece, give or take depending on the size of your pieces.
As I’ve mentioned before, you can add any variations of ingredients or seasonings. I often add chopped or creamed spinach for example. (The garlic salt was PERFECT in this combination!)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread parchment paper on a baking sheet (best to do this now, before your hands get messy, lol). Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix well:
I just use my hands to mix it up good. Tip: Wash your hands first. And definitely after, lol.
Next you’ll spoon out the batter onto the parchment paper. I often shape them with my hands since they’re already messy, but this was a thicker mixture and I spooned it out and shaped them round and flat with a spoon:
Unlike my cheesy low carb biscuits with spinach, bacon & mushrooms – these were a bit more dry. Not TOO dry, just dryER. On my next attempt I may add whipped cream cheese to see if they come out slightly better. Although they were pretty darn good as is!
I baked them at 350, and just kept an eye on them until they were nice and browned – flipping them once to brown both sides:
I made them flat like thick crackers, and spread Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Wedges on them.
I used 1/3 to 1/2 a wedge of the creamy swiss on each “biscuit”.
When you want something hearty, filling AND low carb – without having to cook an entire meal – this “10 minute fix” is just plain perfect!
I absolutely love this “recipe” because you can throw just about anything you have on hand in the bowl, and make a yummy low carb “bread” out of it.
I mentioned I made five pieces, which were small enough to fit in the palm of my hand. And that TOTALLY filled me up. -Enjoy!!
