When I was on Atkins back in 2003/2004, I lost a lot of weight and had almost no cravings. I also learned tons of different recipes and snack ideas, this was one of them! I used to be a member of an Atkins Diet Bulletin Board and found this awesome recipe for imitation cheese nips! They definitely do taste like them too!
- 1 cup hard hand grated cheese. This would be parmesan, asiago, swiss, cheddar, etc...
What to do:
- Preheat oven to 350 F
- (Optional) You can toss your grated cheese with any seasoning you'd like, or you can just leave the cheese the way it is. It depends what your favorite flavor is.
- You can either pile the cheese (2-3 tsp) on parchment paper making little towers or you can spread the cheese the whole size of the baking sheet, making one flat cheese sheet! You will slice these later.
- Bake 5 to 6 minutes until they are a light golden brown (they will be a little darker at the edges). It happens fast, so watch carefully.
