No Carb Cheetos!

If you are like me sometimes the low carb lifestyle leaves me longing for crunchy foods! I got this recipe from 'mariamindbodyhealth'. These golden crunchy puffs are delicious and satisfied my craving for Cheetos. I don't know how long it has been since I have had real Cheetos. There are some things that I would change with this recipe. Maybe adding some cheese flavored popcorn salt would do the trick about halfway through the baking process.

3 egg whites beaten until very stiff
1/8 tsp. cream of tarter (add this to the egg whites before beating)
1/2 cup frozen cheddar cheese that has been pulsed in the food processor or blender until it is in tiny bits.

Add the cheese bits gently to the egg whites. Be sure you don't let all,the air out of the egg whites. Put the cheese and egg white mixture in a plastic bag nd cut a hole in the corner and squeeze out Cheetos size shapes onto a greased cookie sheet. I used olive oil but you could also use parchment paper.

Bake this in a preheated oven at 300 degrees for about 25 minutes. If you want you can sprinkle them wi Parmesan cheese or dust them with cheese flavored popcorn salt.
