How to Make Cheddar Cheese Bites
You can make these cheddar cheese bites with just a few ingredients, and takes only 5-10 minutes of prep time.
Ingredients You‘ll Need
- cheddar cheese
- almond flour
- baking powder
- black pepper
Tip: It‘s more cost-efficient to buy blocks of cheese rather than pre-shredded. Often times pre-shredded cheeses also have added preservatives.
Buy cheese by the block if you can and shred it at home. You can freeze shredded cheese if you don‘t think you will use it all before its expiration date.
First, preheat the oven to 400F (200C).
Then, start by cracking the eggs into a bowl. Whisk them until they are completely mixed.
Add the cheddar cheese, almond flour, baking powder, and pepper.
Mix everything with a metal spoon or spatula. Make sure that everything is combined well.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper. This will help the cheddar cheese bites from sticking to the baking tray.
You can use your hands to roll the mixture into 9 equal balls.
Tip: You can rub a small amount of oil (olive oil, coconut oil, etc.) on your hands to prevent the batter from sticking.
Put the tray in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. The cheddar cheese bites are done when they are golden brown.
Remove the cheddar cheese bites from the oven and let them cool for just a few minutes. They are best served warm, but you can eat them chilled or at room temperature.
What Cheddar Cheese to Use?
Cheddar cheese is so delicious, and it can be tricky to see all of the different varieties at the grocery store.
It‘s best to buy cheddar cheese in whole blocks to save some money. But which one should you buy?
You will often see different types of sharp cheddar cheese. As cheddar ages, it becomes sharper.
A sharp flavor is going to be tangier, while a less sharp cheese will be more mellow. You can use whatever you prefer for this recipe.
Any cheese will work here. However, if you are going to be feeding the bites to kids or pickier eaters, I recommend using mild cheddar.
You can also use flavored cheese. Some to consider herbed cheddar cheese or pepper jack.
How to Store These Low Carb Cheese Bites?
Store these cheese bites in a glass container because they tend to keep the food fresh for longer. Also, it‘s more sustainable.
Do use parchment paper to separate the layers if you cannot lay them all flat in the container. They will stick together if you do not do this.
The best way to store the cheddar cheese bites is in a cool place, but not necessarily the refrigerator. They will get soggy if you store them in the fridge.
So, I would keep them in a container on the countertop. They probably won‘t last that long anyway since once you try one, you cannot stop.
Can You Freeze These Low Carb Bites?
Freeze them in food containers for up to one month.
You can also freeze these cheese bites before baking. All you need to do is pop them into the freezer on a baking tray until they are solid.
Afterward, put them in a container or even a freezer-friendly plastic bag.
Once you‘re ready to bake them, take them out of the freezer, let them sit for a few minutes before baking in the oven.
