Low Carb Baked Veggie Cheese Squares

Victoria's Veggie SquaresA wonderful, refreshing veggie treat that’s virtually guilt free! Squares will be very moist. Awesome served with any meat, with a salad, soup, etc…..and I love them to have alone as a snack. If you’re not worried about carbs, you can eliminate the carbquik and use extra bread crumbs. I estimate each square has around 5-6 carbs. A great treat for those hard-to-please vegetable haters.
