Cheesy Grins sounded good for dinner tonight, but I was in a hurry, so I whipped up this quicker version for one. Yum! 8+d
Quick & Easy Low Carb Cheese Grits
1 package orzo-shaped shirataki noodles (or pulverize another shape)
2 tablespoons salted butter
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2 teaspoon Imitation Butter Flavor
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded cheddar or mixed hard cheeses
Rinse shirataki noodles well in a colander under running water. Drain well. Set aside.
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt butter (about 45 seconds on high).
Add egg and beat with a fork until creamy. Add seasoning salt and butter flavor and mix again with fork. Add shredded cheeses and mix. Pour in shirataki “grits” and mix well.
Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Let sit for another 5 minutes. Stir and eat!
The carb count depends on your cheese(s), but should be around 2 net carbs for the entire recipe. It serves 1 or 2.
