1 bag(s), (20g), crushed (see tip)

reduced fat oil spread

1 tbs, melted

green shallot(s)

1 tbs, thinly sliced

light cream cheese

½ cup(s), (125g)

99% fat-free plain yoghurt

¼ cup(s), (60g)

plain flour

1 tsp

fresh chives

1½ tbs, chopped

garlic, dried, powder or flakes

¼ tsp

Cayenne pepper, ground

tsp, (pinch)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly spray a 12cm round springform tin with oil and line base and side with baking paper.
  2. Combine crushed chips and spread in a small bowl. Press chip mixture evenly over base of prepared tin. Place tin on a baking tray and bake for 5 minutes.
  3. Heat a small non-stick frying pan over low heat. Cook shallot, stirring, for 4 minutes or until softened (do not brown). Set aside to cool.
  4. Process cream cheese in a small food processor until smooth. Add yoghurt, flour, 1 tablespoon chives, shallots, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and egg and process until well combined.
  5. Pour cheese mixture over baked base. Sprinkle top with remaining chives. Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce oven to 120°C. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until just set (the cheese wheel should still have a definite wobble in the centre).
  6. Turn oven off and leave cheese wheel inside with door slightly ajar to cool for 15 minutes. Remove from tin and serve.
