Notes

Expert Tips:
  • This recipe works great in a skillet, but may be cooked in a casserole dish if desired.
  • Use Italian cheese in place of mozzarella if desired.
  • Each serving contains approx. 8gm carb (note that there are 2 gm fiber included in the total carb amount of 8gm). This number could be further lowered by using more "full fat" products like regular cream cheese, full fat mozzarella cheese, etc. if desired. Be sure to add in carbs from chips if using those for dippers.
