The idea of savoury churros intrigues me and after testing these 3 Cheese Keto Churros with Lemon and Lime Salt I am convinced that I can see a lot more in my lifetime!

These churros are like eating a cheese toastie in a deliciously crisp one handed treat.  I am already coming up with so may ideas for future recipes to use the churro machine until it dies from over use.  I should say here that if you do not have one, then either use a waffle maker, a frypan, or I think one of those flat  toasted sandwich makers would work as well.

3 cheese churros with soft boiled egg on plate

The recipe is in the most basic form here.  If you want to add a dose of extra fat after cooking, fry them up a little butter and roll them in a salty dusting of micro-planed parmesan and extra salt.  If you want some heat add some chilli.  I mean the flavours are endless, garlic and cheese, vegemite and cheese, jalapeno and goat cheese, haloumi, cheese and spinach…. the list goes on!

It’s part of the Meal Plan

Included in the Week 2 Menu Plan these churros are a new fave on my list of weekly cooks.  It is also worth making and freezing.  These can easily be microwaved and given a little crispy fry up before serving.
