I like to take your Cabot extra sharp white cheddar and shred it. Then drop handfuls on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 350° until just starting to brown around the edges. Let cool and enjoy!

    Rachael | April 30, 2018 | 8:54am

    Yes! It’s so easy and delicious! Love making these too 🙂 ~Rachael

I never saw mini toasts in my grocery stores. Are they called something else? Looks like a nice low carb/lower calorie lunch with the small cup of soup as shown.

Re HACK #5: Low-Carb Mini Snack Sandwiches…Nutella is not Low-Carb in any way. Please don’t misinform people, it’s first ingredient is SUGAR and it’s 21 net carbs a serving.
