Ingredients – Serves 4
200g Extra Mature Chedder Cheese – possible cost of £1.25 (GBP) at the time of writing.
40g Pepperoni – £0.30
Instructions – Prep Time: 5 minutes. Cooking Time: 10-15 minutes
Grate the cheese, and chop the pepperoni into smaller bits. I grate my own cheese, as pre grated cheese in the UK has added potato starch. Presumably to stop the cheese from sticking together.
I used a none-stick frying pan, on medium to high heat. Sprinkle the cheese into the pan with the pepperoni. Keep an eye on it, when it has formed a hard crust on the bottom, turn it over and give it a couple more minutes. Cut into quarters, and you are done.
The snack per serving; you are looking at around 250 Calories, Total Carbs 1g (1%), Protein 14g (23%) and Fat 20g (76%). These figures are taken from MyFitnessPal, so you could argue the figures up and down a bit but you get my point. The snack per person/portion is around £0.40.
This was my first attempt. I was originally looking for work lunch ideas, as I am getting a bit bored with egg or meat salads. I don’t think this recipe would work as a lunch meal in its current version. I envision it as a snack, for when I am out walking or at the cinema. However I will do some experimenting. Maybe add some chopped cherry tomatoes to give it more of a pizza feel, as well as different vegetables like spinach and mushrooms. Then I might get to a version I would be happy with for a lunch option.
