Keto Ham and Cheese Bites Recipe: Servings: 12 bites
- 12 slices of deli ham
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Cooking spray or melted butter for greasing
Preheat the Oven:
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
Prepare the Cheese Mixture:
- In a bowl, combine the shredded cheddar cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create a seasoned cheese mixture.
Assemble the Bites:
- Lay out the slices of deli ham on a clean surface.
- Place a small spoonful of the cheese mixture onto each slice of ham.
Roll Up the Bites:
- Gently roll up the ham slices, enclosing the cheese mixture. You’ll end up with bite-sized rolls.
Grease the Baking Dish:
- Lightly grease a baking dish with cooking spray or melted butter to prevent sticking.
Bake the Bites:
- Place the ham and cheese bites in the greased baking dish.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the ham is slightly crispy around the edges.
Cool and Serve:
- Allow the bites to cool slightly before serving.
- You can serve them on their own or with a dipping sauce of your choice, such as sugar-free ketchup or a garlic aioli.
