More Low Carb Snacks

Here are some more low carb snacks which are tasty and easy to make. They are great whether you are unwinding in front of the television, or having friends over for appetizers and drinks.

Deviled Eggs

  • 6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and cut lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon of minced onion
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry ground mustard
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Dried dill for garnish

Move the cooked egg yolks to a small bowl and mash with a fork. Add mayonnaise, onion, mustard, salt and pepper and mix until creamy and smooth. Fill the empty egg white shells with the mixture and sprinkle lightly with dill. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to one day before serving.

Deli Rolls

  • Thinly sliced ham or turkey
  • Cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup minced onion

Dry the ham or turkey between paper towels. Spread each slice with a thin layer of cream cheese. Roll the slice up like a jelly roll. Repeat until all ingredients are used. Refrigerate the completed rolls for several hours to harden cream cheese. Enjoy these whole, or cut across in sections and eat as appetizers. For different flavors, you can add finely minced shallots, dijon mustard, or spices to the cream cheese before spreading it over the meats.

Celery filled with Cream Cheese

  • Celery stalks
  • Cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup minced onion and various spices

Wash and cut stalks of celery into 4 inch pieces. Fill with cream cheese mixture.

Variation: Leave out the onion and instead, mix the cream cheese with a 2 tablespoon of unsweetened peanut butter. You can also add a packet of splenda. Fill the celery with this mixture.

Cheese Chips

Take a sheet of baking parchment paper (Don't use wax paper, it won't work) and cut it to the size of your microwave turn table. Put the paper on the turn table and then add small piles (a little larger than a half dollar) of shredded cheddar or monterey jack cheese, spacing them an inch apart. You can put a pile in the middle as well. Microwave for about 90-120 seconds. The piles will turn in crisp little cheese chips. This is one my favorite low carb snacks.

Low Carb Lemon Cheesecake Pudding

  • 8 ounces of softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4-5 packets of artificial sweetener
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract

Put ingredients in mixing bowl and mix well with a hand blender. Spoon into 4 serving cups. Eat only one serving per day. : )
