While looking for some variety in my low carb keto snacks, I decided to try this cheddar cheese crisps recipe seasoned with Old Bay. That turned out to be a winning idea. So if you miss your Old Bay potato chips, give these high protein low carb snacks a try.
How to make cheese chips
High protein low carb snacks are everything when you’re eating keto or low carb. You can have fat bombs or avocado but sometimes you want some crunch. This is where this cheese crisps recipe come in. And you can pay to buy pre-made, but it’s almost too easy to make them from scratch.
It’s as simple as mixing two ingredients. Cheese and Old Bay. I chose cheddar, but you could pick another cheese. Cheddar is kind of salty, so you might want to season to taste since the Old Bay is salty too.
Make sure you’re laying the mixture thin in the pan. If you can see through the mixture to the bottom of the pan, you’ve done it right.
Once baked, you may see one or more holes in the crisp (this is a good thing!) If the mixture is in too thick, it can be chewy.
I use the silicone muffin pan because it’s easier to clean and the foods pop right out. Just set the pan on a sheet pan to bake and it’s one of the easiest snacks to make. I’ll often bake a few at a time and store the mix in the fridge.
I grew up in Maryland, so Old Bay runs in my blood. I season everything with it – scrambled eggs, meatloaf, tuna sandwiches… Now I can still enjoy high protein snack foods with Old Bay too. I’m a happy girl.
