My orginal recipe was with buckwheat pancakes but I had to shave off the carbs to meet my daily allowance. Since I like egg muffins and the only vegetarian produce that has minimal to zero carbs is cheddar and eggs I remembered that you can grill cheese into crispy yummy goodness.


• 1 Egg
• 1 dash sunflower oil
• 20g Cheddar Cheese



1. Slice the cheese thinly with a cheese slicer or grate it.
2. Layout the cheese on a non-stick baking sheet or foil in two round circle. Make sure there are no holes.
3. Grill until crispy and tinged golden brown.
4. Once cooked, leave for 1-2 minutes to set and careful remove with a palette knife or cheese slicer.
5. Meanwhile put a pan to heat. Place an egg ring in the center of the pan and add 1 dash of vegetable oil.
6. When the oil is hot crack an egg inside. Once it starts to set break the yolk with a knife.
7. Leave it another minute to set more.
8. Cut around the egg separating it from the ring with a sharp knife. Remove the ring.
9. Leave the egg another minute then flip the egg over for another 1-2 minutes until it has set.
10. Place one of your Crispy Cheese rounds on a plate. Top with your egg and another Crispy Cheese round.
