These amazing cheese bombs use FatHead dough – I first wrote about this fabulous low carb (and high fat) dough in my recipe for Pigs in Blankets. I've made it several times since then, and it's always been a success! If you want to know more about it, check out my Ultimate Guide to FatHead Dough!

How to Make Low Carb Bacon Jalapeño Cheese Bombs

To make the FatHead dough, combine shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a bowl, and microwave it for one minute. Stir, then cook for another 30 seconds. The mozzarella should have melted and be super sticky! Add in almond flour, a beaten egg, salt and pepper. Stir well to combine. Let the dough cool enough so that you can handle it, then knead until smooth. Add extra almond flour if it is too sticky to work with.

Take a small portion of the dough and flatten it out into your hand, and add a slice of mozzarella cheese string.Low Carb Bacon Jalapeño Cheese Bombs - keto, gluten free and LCHF appetizer, snack, or party recipe!

Next, add some bacon bits (make sure they're made from real bacon!), and some finely diced fresh jalapeño.

Form the dough around the filling, ensuring that all sides are completely sealed. Place it on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat. Continue with the rest of the dough: this recipe makes 12 cheese bombs.

Sprinkle any remaining bacon bits over the top of each bomb, then roast in a preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Let cool slightly (that cheese filling can be HOT!), then garnish with chopped chives and serve warm.
