Tips for making Low Carb Broccoli Cheese Rounds
I just have a handful of tips to get you prepared for making the best low carb cheese rounds ever! Here are some things that will help you have the best luck in making them:
- You’ll need to cook the broccoli and cauliflower combo before beginning. If you don’t cook them, the keto broccoli chips won’t turn out correctly.
- Another critical aspect of the broccoli and cauliflower is letting it cool before beginning. If you start making the rounds right away when they are hot, it will end up melting the cheese, and it will be a disaster.
- Draining off any excess liquid is crucial because you’ll end up with watered down broccoli and cheese tots, and no one wants that.
- You can use either parchment paper or those silicone sheets. This will prevent the cheese rounds from sticking to the pan. If they stick, they are a bear to get removed, and you’ll want to pull your hair out.
Broccoli Cheese Rounds Variations
You can add in some extra pizzazz if you want to these incredible low carb cheese rounds. Here are a few ideas to inspire you.
- Bacon – Cook and crumble 2-3 slices of bacon and add them to the mix. It’s an amazing way to add some extra protein to the dish.
- Green Onions – Chop up some green onions and sprinkle into the batter. So yummy and pretty too.
- Sour Cream – Dip the finished broccoli rounds into some cold sour cream. There is nothing better!
- Cheese – Swap the cheese for cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan, or provolone. They are all pretty tasty and go well with the other ingredients.
How Do You Reheat Keto Broccoli Chips?
Reheating the broccoli cheese rounds is easy! First, you could place them on a plate that has been lined with a paper towel. Then place the broccoli cheese rounds on the plate and cover with another paper towel. Heat for 30-45 seconds or until they are hot.
You can add the broccoli rounds to an air fryer and spray them with a little bit of olive oil. Cook at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes or until they are hot all the way through.
Lastly, warming them up in the oven is another great option. Lay them out on a baking sheet that has been covered with parchment paper. Heat them at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or so until they are hot all the way through.
