Savory Cheese "Bread" Sticks (GF)





SAVORY CHEESE “BREAD” STICKS
Served warm, these are soft, cheesy "bread" sticks. Nice with a glass of white wine.  They freeze really well too.  Nuke 'em approximately 15 seconds and enjoy as though it was fresh out of the oven again.

6 oz  cream cheese, (180 g)
  softened
2 extra-large eggs
6 oz grated Cheddar cheese (180 g)
3 oz grated Parmesan cheese (90 g)
3 tbsp whey protein powder, (90 mL)
  (natural or vanilla)
1/3 cup gluten-free oat flour (75 mL)
1/4 tsp paprika (1 mL)

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).  In food processor with sharp blade or blender, process cream cheese until smooth.  Add eggs; process. Add Cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, whey protein powder, oat flour and paprika; process.

Turn out into greased 9 x 13-inch (23 x 33 cm) glass baking dish and press down evenly, using plastic wrap, to make things easier. Remove plastic wrap. Bake in oven 20 minutes, or until turning golden brown at edges and when it is firm to the touch.  From long side of dish, cut into 14 sticks and cut down center of dish horizontally.  Serve warm.  Refrigerate leftovers and reheat Cheese “Bread” Sticks in microwave oven about 15 seconds.

What a great treat! I'm intrigued by the oat flour!!!

Jennifer said...

And why is that? LOL It is one of the lower-carb, healthy grains and in moderation it is fine for folks doing moderate low-carbing and who are on the grains rung of the Atkins diet.

Nice to "see" you, Tiffany!

They look delicious! I wonder what they would be good to dip in? Maybe things like chili? Or even just salsa? Mmm... I'd definitely chow down on those!

Carolyn said...

Was wondering if /how these could be heated in the oven ( temp and time) we got rid of our microwave a while back due to the health concerns. I would love to make this for my children as a 'fast' snack!

I guess I would try heating them quickly in a 350 deg. F. oven - you'd have to check on them, but if you find that it is too hot, then I'd say a 300 deg. F. oven. Trial and error - just keep an eye on them and you'll figure it out. Should be fine. If you have toaster oven - that would work too.
