Ham and cheese first class

So I’m never sure if anyone is actually seeing these posts but I like having them to look back at myself.

Ive been exploring more options with this dough. I kind of feel like I hit a turning point with it this evening. Half batch to night.

1.5 cups shredded mozzarella

3/4 tablespoon cream cheese

teaspoon and a half nutritional yeast

few shakes of sea salt

melt and combine. Start preheating oven at 425 F.

1/2 cup almond flour

one egg combine yolk and white

*mix the flour and egg*

add half the flour egg paste to the cheese melt, stir and combine. Take off heat and add remaining egg/flour paste. Combine and fold. Transfer to parchment paper

begin folding paper in half while rolling out dough

each fold over will help bind everything

My original intention was to make two large ham and cheese croissants (hence the diagonal cut)

i started to remember the last time I attempted this and realized that I wasn’t a huge fan of the endless cheese and meat center. I decided 4 smaller crossiants would be the best remedy.

i was wondering outloud the other day to my friend peter, “I wonder how adding mustard to the dough would go?” So I decided to give it a shot.

now here’s when all the strict Keto followers will probably get grossed out. Yep, it’s American cheese! As least it’s not KRAFT! It just melts too well and hey, no carbs! (Just orange dye no. 5)

miserable first attempt! I didn’t account for the filling inhibiting the dough sticking to the desired shape. Back to the drawing board

I’m sure Peter will be able to tell me the real name for it but let’s call it an envelope! I was tempted to add a name in mustard and a ham or cheese “stamp” (imagine that at a food truck!)

Final notes: should have rolled out the dough more evenly and in a rectangle. (To be fair I didn’t know what shape I was making to start)  add bacon!  3 would have been plenty for me  come up with a dipping sauce  try as a tuna melt?   Net carbs for total recipe:   1/2 cup almond flour: 4 net carbs  3/4 tablespoon cream cheese: .5 net carbs  total net carbs:  4.5
