Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

The idea of savoury churros intrigues me and after testing these 3 Cheese Keto Churros with Lemon and Lime Salt I am convinced that I can see a lot more in my lifetime!

My keto churros are like eating a cheese toastie in a deliciously crisp one handed treat. 

I am already coming up with so may ideas for future recipes to use the churro machine until it dies from over use. 

I should say here that if you do not have one, then either use a waffle maker, a frypan, or I think one of those flat  toasted sandwich makers would work as well.

3 cheese churros with soft boiled egg on plate

The recipe is in the most basic form here.  If you want to add a dose of extra fat after cooking, fry them up a little butter and roll them in a salty dusting of micro-planed parmesan and extra salt.  If you want some heat add some chilli.  I mean the flavours are endless, garlic and cheese, vegemite and cheese, jalapeno and goat cheese, haloumi, cheese and spinach…. the list goes on!

    Hi, if one don’t have a churros maker can a waffle maker be used instead? Or maybe oven bake? Or fried? Thanks
