Those look wonderful, just might have to buy the other 2 cheeses and give them a try.

Ooooh those look yummy! I finally made the almond thins for the first time last night and I ended up eating the whole batch.

Would any cheese mix work? I have a huge bag of Mexican blend cheese could I just use three cups of that?

Kevinpa 08-03-2006 10:45 AM

yes, any cheese will work. The last time I made them I used all chedder. I just happen to like the taste of this blend of cheeses. The only difference will be in the amount of time the last crisping phase in the oven. The amount of oil in the cheese will determine how long it take for them to crisp up. Also when storing them I suggest doing it in a paper bag rather than plastic....they keep their crunch that way.

SugarBabi 08-03-2006 02:26 PM

Is that wpi 5000?

They look great!! :cool:

Yes, until somebody shows me something that works with 8000 I always use 5000. I have beeen disappointed with everything I have ever made with 8000.

SugarBabi 08-03-2006 03:38 PM

Okay, I'll remember that. thanks Kevinpa.

Kevin..I'm thinking...thin NY Style pizza crust..what do you think??

Bake it, then top it with sauce, etc..and put in back in the oven for things to melt..

Kevinpa 08-03-2006 09:25 PM

That just might work, but I'm not quite sure what the sauce would do to it.......sounds like mini experiment time,,,,,,lol

That sounds yummy! Great Idea!

Do these stay crispy if they're not eaten right away? I made some "cheese chips" with just deluxe american cheese and they were great when I first made them, but they got soggy after putting them in a Ziploc bag.

Thanks, I'll try that.
I have a big Netrition order coming in today, so I'm gonna try your cheese cracker recipe too.

And just to clarify, all your recipes including WPI use 5000, right?

Kevinpa 08-04-2006 11:02 AM

yes wheat protein isolate 5000.

What does the wheat protein Isolate do? What is it for? And how many carbs? I have some whey protein ordered is that the same?
All these new products are confusinf to me.Gusee I'll learn them in time.:p

What would you suggest to use for sweetner I have been useing Splenda but seems to be a lot of CARBS I didn't know about in it. I have tried Stevia and don't care for it. How about fiber fit?:dunno:

Kevinpa 10-08-2006 11:10 AM

Berta, If you click ---> wheat protein isolate 5000 it will take you to the netrition page where you can buy it. It will also give you a pretty good functional explaination of what it is and what it is used for. As far as subbing your whey protein isolate for it I will tell you what I have told others. It will work, but the flavor will not be the same. I would suggest that you could try these crackers using the whey and if you are not quite satified with the flavor then think about using the wheat.

As far as sweeteners go, I do not think there is any 1 sweetener that fits all situations and in most cases as you will see looking a recipes here that a combination of sweeteners is the preference to achieve a synergy of that combination. I personally have and use 6 or 7 different sweeteners depending on the situation. When and where to use them is something I learned best by experience and noting what worked for others.
Lastly, not everybody can tolerate all sweeteners. You will have to learn which are suited best for you.

Thanks Kevin I have seen some of your posts and I see that you are a EXCELLENT cook(CHEF). I love cooking but not into expermenting:down: I use Splenda mostly.I'm just trying to find some way of eliminating CARBS just like all of us here.:up:

I'd love a LC cake recipe. Do you do recipe nutriton values?In other words if I gave you a recipe would or could you figure the Carb count and etc for me?:p I am math illiterate and I am not joking I really am .Not proud of it just the truth.:( Also I'd love a muffin that isn't the size of a golf ball??:D LC of course
I am on Owl but have been staying under or around 25 a day I am going to try to remain there until I loose much more weight.:)

I looked and I'm ordering the isolate THANKS now send me some recipes;)

Is it honestly true that calories don't matter doing Atkins?As I use fit day and my calorie intake is scary sometimes:eek:

thecheshirekat 10-13-2006 01:05 AM

These are great! :up: I followed the recipe as closely as I could, but used 1 cup of cheddar, 1 1/2 cups of mozzarella, and 1/2 cup grated parmesan.

I cut the first half of the batch into little squares like Cheez-its:

http://www.thecheshirekat.net/cheesecrackers01.jpg

Then, for the second half, I got creative and cut them into circles like Ritz :D:

http://www.thecheshirekat.net/cheesecrackers02.jpg

My boyfriend the cracker lover claims that they're the best LC cracker recipe I've ever tried. So, just for him, I made a cheese-cracker-and-peanut-butter sandwich:

Thank you SO much for the recipe!

Leashy 10-13-2006 02:32 AM

Those look SO GOOD!

Tryinghardtolose 10-13-2006 05:10 AM

I noticed you used Fontina cheese in your recipe and I have seen it mentioned in other recipes on here too. I have never heard of it before reading about it here. I have looked in my stores and can't seen to find it. Where would I look? With the speciality cheeses or just with the regular ones? What shape is it in and is it a hard or soft kind of cheese?

Thanks for much in advance for the information!

Pam

Kevinpa 10-13-2006 08:48 AM

I get it at any grocery store or walmart or even Sam's club. It is usually by where they keep the chunks of parmesan and asigo. The thing is you can use any kind of cheese you like. as I said earlier I have made these before using all chedder and they were great too.

myyellowstang 10-13-2006 11:01 AM

Looks so good!!!

How the heck you do that? Mine would crumble up if I tried to cut them? Did you put it all in a pan and then cut them or what?I am going to the movies this week end and taking some so I don't eat the popcorn.:confused:

HOW DID YOU DO THAT?
 
How the heck did you do that? Did you put all the cheese into one pan and then cut them? Mine would fall apart if I tried to cut them???
They look so nice especially the round ones/ I'm going to take some to the movie this week end so i won't eat popcorn

I'm a little confused by the question :confused:. Kevin's recipe requires you to cut the crackers once they've gone through the initial baking phase. I just cut them with a cookie cutter instead of scoring them. Are you referring to your own cheese cracker recipe from another thread, which is just cheese and doesn't include the eggs, almond flour, wheat protein isolate, and butter? The ones that are just cheese wouldn't cut well, I agree, but these work fine.
