I think they'd be very good with guacamole. Actually I was thinking that you could cut the cheese puff into strips when it cools and use them easily for dips. I'd like to try them as a sandwich "bread" too. I've made them twice. The first time I didn't microwave it long enough and it was too soft, but the next time it was perfect. They're a welcome addition to the diet, nice and crunchy if a little salty. I know what you mean about lettuce wraps. I eat a lot of them for lunches with a couple of slices of cold cuts or tuna or chicken salad. They don't bother my numbers but I'd like something different.
That's the only thing I've tried from his book. I haven't bought the cookbook though. Actually, when I looked through the recipes in this book, they looked pretty similar to the South Beach book.
PS: My two "normal" kids like the cheese puffs and I'll need to buy another package of the American cheese since we finished half of it this afternoon while they were preparing and grilling steaks for Father's Day. Better than eating potato chips (which I don't buy anyway) or some other poison. We re-used the parchment paper for each batch of 2 squares and we didn't put them on plates as it was just as easy to slide the paper out of the microwave. Also, we didn't put the puffs in the refrigerator because they cooled off so fast, more so because they weren't on a plate, which keeps the heat. We just left them on the paper on the counter and ate them after a few minutes. So, that's our experience with the puffs and I thought I'd share that with you. (My husband and son said they were really good with the beer, fyi.) :)
I've been eating them as a snack sometimes, more satisfying than just nuts or the mozzarella cheese sticks. Now my normal son eats them as a breakfast on the way out the door to work. He never ate breakfast before, which I nagged him about. Now, I'm wondering if the mozzarella sticks can be microwaved. They'll either melt or explode but, hey, worth a try.
