Fried CheeseYes, you read that right! I felt the same way the first time I found this recipe but I have since learned that this is really good! For all you low-carb dieters who are missing those cheese-flavored snacks, this is the treat for you! But you don’t have to be on a low-carb diet to appreciate this decadent snack!

Nonstick cooking spray
1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 to 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar, JalapeƱo Jack or Monterey Jack cheese

1. Spray a small, heavy bottomed, nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat.

2. Add the oil and then the cheese. The cheese will melt, bubble and spread to fill the bottom of the skillet.

3. Let the cheese fry until it is crisp and brown around the edges. Use a thin spatula to lift up an edge; if the cheese is well browned, flip it over and fry the other side until it is also well browned.

4. Remove from the skillet and drain on paper towel; allow it to lie flat to cool. Break it into pieces and it is ready to eat.

This makes 2 servings, each containing 1 gram of carbohydrate, no fiber and 11 grams of protein.
