    • Thanks! I meant to tell you, I saw a post of yours linked on my friends Facebook account; I feel like I know a celebrity :)

  2. These look awesome, I do something similar but just on a plate in the microwave when I am really in a rush. Gotta love meat and cheese!

  3. Ive been doing something like this

    I plop down a handful of cheese and get it all nice and crispy, then toss a tsp of pasta sauce and a bunch of pepperonis over that, really good

  4. Just tried this with pepperjack! yum!

  5. Quick cooking tip: to melt cheese on anything A LOT quicker… Take a small handful of water from the faucet and drop into the cooking skillet and immediately cover. The steam melts all the cheese in under a minute.

  6. Terrific. For some added flavor, I throw a single jalapeno slice on top of each one, under the cheese.

  7. Just tried this and it was quite satisfying. Thanks, Caveman Keto!
