Bacon Olive Toasts
A great low-carb hors d'ouvers. Freezes well for a quick snack too! These are so good they won't even care that they're low carb.
|18 Slices||Low-Carb Bread|
|6 Slices||Crispy Bacon|
|1 Cup||Black Olives (Green Olives work too)||½ Cup||Green Onion Tops|
|1½ Cup||Cheddar Cheese, shreaded|
Toast bread on one side only. This can be done either by putting two slices of bread together into a toaster oven, or by placing a single layer of bread on a cooking sheet and broiling for a few minutes until toasted on one side.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until roughly blended. Small bits of onion, bacon and olive should still be recognizable.
Remove crusts from toast and cut into shapes. I like triangles myself. Spread the bacon olive spread over the untoasted side. If making these for use later they can now be frozen in a single layer. Once frozen moven them to an airtight container and keep frozen until ready to use.
When ready to serve, place desired number of toasts spread side up on a cookie sheet and broil until spread becomes bubbly and brown.
Carbs: If you remove the crusts and use low-carb bread that's about 5 carbs a slice and cut each into 4 pieces... ~72 pieces at 1.2 carbs each.
The formula is:
Carb count for each piece = ((Slices of bread x number of carbs per bread slice) + 14 Carbs for the spread) / total number of bacon olive toasts
I subracted 1 carb for each bread piece because I removed the crusts.
((18 x 4) + 14) / 72 = 1.19444...
