Air Fryer Frico Cups (KETO Friendly) — Today, I bring you the latest in my Air Fryer Journey. If you are following KETO (even if you are not) today, I will show you how to make crackers out of cheese.
Last week, I made this amazing batch of crispy Air Fryer Pepperoni Chips. Both my husband and I couldn’t stop eating them. They were great if you are KETO and looking for something crispy to crunch on,
Then this week, there was much debate if you could do homemade crackers with just cheese in the air fryer. Guess what? It’s so easy that anyone can do it, and it takes less than 10 minutes.
If you are looking for even more Air Fryer KETO Recipes, some of my favorites are KETO AIR FRYER PICKLES, AIR FRYER THE BEST BUFFALO CAULIFLOWER BITES, AIR FRYER NAKED CHICKEN TENDERS, and AIR FRYER BACON WRAPPED SHRIMP.
What Are Frico Cups?
Frico cups are cracker cups that are made completely out of cheese. They are great if you are following KETO or another low-carb diet.
Today, I made a batch using my Air Fryer Muffin tin, and they were fabulous. You can fill them with anything! It makes for a great snack for the family!
Ingredients Needed For Air Fryer Frico Cups
- Grated Parmesan Cheese
- Air Fryer Muffin Tin
How To Make Air Fryer Frico Cups
In a muffin tin, add two tablespoons of shredded Parmesan cheese Set the temperature to 350 degrees F for 5 minutes (air frying setting)
Let cool, before removing, as they will harden up.
What Type of Cheese Can You Use For Frico Cups?
While today, I used shredded parmesan cheese, you can really use any cheese. The key would be to use a fresh grated, shredded cheese, which melts better than packaged shredded cheese.
Since, shredded cheese sold in the grocery store has been coated with cellulose, which makes them not melt the best.
So, for best results, shred your own cheese.
What To Fill Frico Cups With?
Some great options would be anything that can be small, my favorites are:
- Cherry Tomato Salad
