Cheese Squares Substitutions & Tips

  • Feel free to experiment with different cheese combinations to suit your preferences. Using high-quality, freshly shredded cheese can enhance the overall flavor. I do not recommend using pre-shredded cheese in this recipe.
  • Use any ‘melty’ cheese in this recipe. I like cheddar and Monterrey or Pepper Jack.
  • Regarding the red pepper, you can omit and add another seasoning. Try paprika for a milder flavor. Cajun, Creole, and fajita seasoning are all good.
  • You can use roasted, unroasted, and diced poblano or jalapeno peppers for more spice!
  • Keep an eye on the squares while baking to achieve the desired level of doneness. You can let them cook longer for a more crisp square.

  • 2 cups Monterey cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4-ounce jar of diced pimentos, drained
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Monterey shredded, or pepper jack cheese
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese shredded
  • 4 ounces pimentos diced, drained
  • ½ cup almond milk any low carb milk
  • ½ cup almond flour or almond or coconut flour
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray with non-stick spray or line an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on the edges to use a handles to remove.
  • Do not use pre-shredded cheese in this recipe. Combine the shredded cheeses and add half of them to the baking dish. Top with the drained pimento. Add the remaining cheese on top. Gently press into pan.
  • Whisk the milk, eggs, flour, and red pepper together. Gently pour it over the cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for about 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned on top.
  • Remove and let cool. Cut into bite-sized squares. I prefer it served at room temperature. It tastes more 'eggy' when hot or warm.
