– 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or a blend of your choice)
– 1/4 cup almond flour
– 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
– 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
– 1/4 teaspoon paprika
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
– 1 large egg
– Cooking oil (such as avocado oil or coconut oil) for frying
1. In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded cheese, almond flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly combined.
2. Add the egg to the mixture and stir until it forms a dough-like consistency.
3. Heat the cooking oil in a frying pan or skillet over medium heat.
4. Take a small portion of the dough and roll it into a ball, about the size of a ping pong ball. Repeat with the remaining dough.
5. Carefully place the cheese balls into the hot oil, leaving some space between them. You may need to cook them in batches, depending on the size of your pan.
6. Fry the cheese balls for about 2-3 minutes, or until they turn golden brown and crispy. Flip them over halfway through cooking to ensure even browning.
7. Once cooked, remove the cheese pops from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
8. Allow the cheese pops to cool slightly before serving. They are best enjoyed while still warm and crispy.
