    This was good. The next time I will use less than 1/2 tsp of Salt.

      Great recipe! I use sea salt because we need our electrolytes. I’m doing carnivore. I’m making this again. I did half with chicken, half with sirloin steak. Yum!!! Ty

        All salt is an electrolyte, so I’m confused why you mentioned it like that?

        It’s good but wayyyy to much salt and pepper definitely will cut the salt and pepper by 1/2 next time

              I was out of lemon pepper so I used salt free table blend spice from Aldi and McCormick California lemon peel ! Man these are good.

                Why is the nutrition measured for 3/4 of an egg cup? I plan to eat a whole one, at least.

                  Aha! The nutrients are determined by the portion I set at the top.

                  Can you use dark meat instead of breast meat?

                    Yes! This should not change your carbohydrates, but this may add an additional 1 gram of fat per serving!

                    Hey keep in mind that cheddar cheese has the highest carb count. I didn’t know that last time I did keto.. if that pertains to your choice of plans

                  Love them. Used cheddar instead of blue cheese. May have over baked but still awesome.

                      Yes! Store them in an airtight container or ziploc bag.
