WOE: 90%/10% Primal and Low-Carb
Low-Carb Lavash Fruit and Cheese Pastry

Low-Carb Lavash Fruit and Cheese Pastry
Makes 1 pastry, can easily be 2 servings


Ingredients

1/2 Joseph's Lavash (or sub a Joseph's low-carb pita)
2 tbsp Polaner Sugar Free Preserves With Fiber (I like strawberry or orange marmalade)
2 tbsp whipped Cream Cheese
1 tsp Butter, melted

Directions

Bring cream cheese to room temperature and mix well with the polaner fruit spread.
Preheat a foreman type grill. Spritz with butter flavor cooking spray if you think it needs it.
Spread the cream cheese and preserve mixture on the bottom 1/3 of the 1/2 lavash sheet.
Fold as you desire (I'm awful at describing it -but burrito fold).
Brush with the melted butter and sprinkle with sweetener, cinnamon or whatever *if desired*.
Cook on the foreman grill for approximately 1 minute until it's brown and crispy and the filling is heated through. Unplug or turn off grill, open lid and let it sit for 1 minute before trying to remove. (I find sliding it off onto a plate works better than trying to lift it).
Once it's on the plate, flip it over so the bottom doesn't steam and get soggy.
Let cool slightly before diving in

**Don't squish the lid down and break the lavash or make it squirt out into the grill lol. Just gently close the lid and let it sit on the pastry, don't latch it down

This sounds great! Thank you Dottie.

I love these preserves and especially the Apricot.

A different take would be to bake the lavash (or pita -cut into "chips", brush with melted butter and bake on parchment for 6-7 minutes until browned and crisp. Could probably microwave them, too.) and spread the cream cheese/fruit mixture on it after it's baked.

I don't have a Foreman Grill, so I'll bake mine. I'm thinking I'll butter the lavash and fill down the middle, like a burrito, and trifold it seam down and bake. Mmmmm.

Another trip to Wallie this weekend....

I do think another way to "cook" this might be in a medium hot frying pan after buttering the "bread", then gently flip it..gently..

But, I have a seldom used George, so he will be happy to be used once more..
