Delicious keto handheld egg and cheese "pies." Great macros!

  • Prep: 18 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: 4 hand pies

Ingredients

Shell

1 1/2 Cup Monterey Jack cheese

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon black pepper

Olive oil (to grease pan)

Filling

4 Eggs

2 Tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream

2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese

1 Tablespoon Butter

1/2 Tablespoon Minced Garlic

1 Teaspoon Black Pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

Grease a baking sheet with olive oil or butter

Sprinkle Monterey Jack into four piles

Season each pile with cayenne and black pepper

Place into the oven for 12-15 minutes, until cheese is brown on the outside but still white in the middle

As your crisps are cooking, whisk eggs, cream, and black pepper for 1-2 minutes until smooth

Turn your stove on to medium heat and melt butter in a saucepan

Pour in your egg mixture and scramble the eggs (use a rubber spatula to move the eggs around, keep it moving consistently and slowly as they start to cook)

Add cream cheese when they are almost done cooking, and fold it in evenly throughout the eggs

Take your cheese crisps out of the oven (note: the middle should be soft and chewy, with the outsides being crunchy)

On half of each cheese crisp place some scrambled eggs

Fold over and enjoy!
