Cheetos



I think these have been posted before.. but worth the post again.. These were incredible, easy, and delicious
3 egg whites
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (frozen)(I froze the cheese before I went to bed)
popcorn cheese sprinkles

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Put the frozen cheese in a food processor, chop, until it's in tiny little pieces.
In a mixing bowl, blend the first two ingredients, at high speed, until whites form stiff peaks.
Sprinkle the chopped cheese, on top of the egg whites.
Then, with a rubber spatula, fold the cheese into the egg whites, VERY CAREFULLY, being careful not to disturb the fluffy whites, but thoroughly spread the cheese, throughout.

Carefully place the mixture into a large Ziplock baggie, cut a ½ inch hole in the corner of baggie. Gently squeeze onto cookie sheet in CHEETO-like shapes. I would suggest using a sheet of parchment baking paper, to line your pan, but if you don't...spray the pan, very well. Lightly sprinkle popcorn cheese, on top of each puff. (not too much or it will come out salty.
Bake at 300 degrees, for 30 minutes, the last ten minutes with the oven off.
Store in a tightly sealed, air-tight container.

I made these small and they cooled quickly where as I ate every last one

I've been wanting to make these, too! Thanks for posting the recipe again!

I don't think I'll be needing to worry about storage of them. I have a feeling they're gonna disappear in one sitting.

3 eggwhites = 0 carbs
1/2 cup cheese = about 4 carbs, more or less, but check the package
cream of tartar = 0 (has 2 grams per 1 tsp. so 1/8 tsp. about 1/4 a gram of carbs)
I don't have any of the popcorn cheese sprinkle to check!

Hello everyone I wrote the company about the Nacho Cheese Jar and this is what they said about the WHOLE JAR.. Now I only used about 1/4 a jar so about 3.5 carbs. and the whole recipe made around 40 small cheese doodle type of Cheeto's...

BTW I was down 1 pound.. Along with the Cheetos my menu for yesterday was:
B- 1/5 of the recipe for "Cauliflower Lasagna
L- Cheetos
D- 2 servings of the Cauliflower Lasagna
snack- sunflower seeds.
Hello Maria,

I feed spare yolks to the cat girls - they love 'em! LOL!

Also good for making lemon or lime curd or hollandaise sauce, or custards....

Here's a suggestion: make a two-part meal by throwing a few slices of pepperoni in a frying pan to crisp and/or warm; meanwhile add the unused yolks to a scrambled egg mixture, pour same into the frypan, and have pepperoni eggs followed by the "cheetos." (Somehow it seems like a suitable combination.)

Not to be crass, but has anyone tried piping the cheetos into a deep fryer, like savory funnel cake?

I don't think so. Correct me if I am wrong but the yolks will not allow for the egg whites to stiffen.

Alton Brown's creme brulee recipe calls for 6 yolks, but you could certainly halve the recipe and use the three you'd wind up with leftover from the Cheetos.

Or heck, just make a double batch of Cheetos!

The recipe that I make, which is based on Roni's recipe, calls for four yolks. So, you'll have to add one extra yolk which will leave you with a leftover egg white which you'll need to add two more to to make another batch of cheetos. It's a never-ending cycle, LOL. I haven't done the math but if you keep making creme brulee and cheetos enough times perhaps you'll eventually come out even on the yolks and whites!

OK, you'd get four batches of cheetos and three batches of creme brulee from a dozen eggs and there'd be no egg yolks left for Charski's cats.

I agree, but was asking about making Creme Brulee with only 3 yolks not adding it to the whites. That WOULD not work at all in making the white stiff.
