Low Carb Saganaki

Fried Cheese? Sign me up. 

At first we thought we couldn't make this treat but quickly started to think outside the gluten box and got almond flour involved.

This one is really simple. We have only made it once, I think it will be a common appetizer for our meals from now on. 

We used Krinos frying cheese to make this saganaki. We changed up the traditional recipe a little bit, no flames were involved. The next time we make it we will try using olive oil and let you know how that goes.

-One 110g block of sheep's milk grilling cheese
-1/2 cup of almond meal/flour 
-1/4 cup of butter for frying
-1 tsp. of chili pepper
-1 xl egg
-a dash of salt & pepper

1. Add all of your dry ingredients in a bowl.
2. Crack an XL egg and whip it in a small bowl.
3. Dip the block of cheese in the egg.
4. Heat butter on high in pan.
5. Coat your dipped block of cheese in flour and seasoning mixture.
6. Fry until golden brown on both sides.
