Default Cheesy Jalapeno Squares

I ran across this recipe in a local group's cookbook--and it was already low-carb! No adjustments were necessary.

4 eggs, well beaten
4 cups sharp cheddar, grated
4 canned jalapeno peppers-chopped (remove seeds to reduce heat)
1 to 2 tsps. chopped onion

Mix all ingredients together and pour into ungreased 8" x 8" pan (I used a good non-stick pan, so I don't know if this has a tendency to stick in an uncoated pan).. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until nice and firm. Cut into 16 squares.

This has been a nice treat for me, as a snack (alone or with veggie sticks) or even a side dish with meals. A small can of chopped chili peppers could be substituted for the jalapenos to reduce "heat", if desired.

These were really good. I love jalapenos. I used less cheese, about 4 oz (3 cups?), so they came out more like a quiche, but still excellent. I served the leftovers to my DBF for breakfast. I forgot to ask how he liked them, but they disappeared, so I'll assume that was a .

I think I'm going to try something similar with a cream cheese base next time. I love jalapeno poppers, but they're a pain to make and the cheese usually melts all over the place. Squares might be easier and less messy.

Yep, cheese and jalapenos--2 of the most perfect foods on earth! Mine were a bit "quiche-like" too (with a thin layer of egg on the bottom), but they sure didn't taste eggy to me. I found also that I liked them better after they had cooled and hardened a bit. The best was after refrigeration and then reheating in the micro for a few seconds (how many foods can we say that about?)...
So glad that you liked them, Kristine! If you do try the cream cheese, please let us know what you think...

LC I can't think of any off the top of my head, but there are sure to be some. Non-LC though Lasagne!!!

I'll have to try these or a variation. The cheese seems like quite a bit though. If you are limiting to 4oz of cheese a day that is like 16 servings.

I love your ultimate goal. Just last night I was thinking when I'm thin I'll be able to look at that scar. I think that I'll make that my personal goal too! How funny, yet how true!

I made these this morning. Really good and easy! I used more jalapeņos because the hubs likes heat. I also used half cream cheese and half cheddar. Added splash of heavy cream just cuz. It's a keeper!
