The crisp is very low carbohydrate and high protein: cheese and egg whites. The toppings are up to you. When I made this batch I was going for the “potato skins” experience so I loaded them up with sour cream, bacon, green onions and guacamole.
I found the basic recipe, which I share with you below, 2 Ingredient Cheese Crisps on Lynsey’s blog: Moscato Mom. It sounded so good.
The crisps come out of the pan perfectly but they are not strong enough to dip so I loaded the toppings by spooning them on. Then I could handle them like an appetizer and just pop them in my mouth.
Alert: the loaded cheese crisps taste so good that, if you aren’t sharing them with someone else, you can easily eat them all yourself. I did! They were my lunch and I loved every low-carb bit of them!
