It’s no secret I’m a lover of food and if you tell me that something has cheese on it, I’m in. Cheese is one of my favorite things to eat on top of pretty much anything, and even by the slice off a block if I have a chance. Well, yesterday I had a craving for something savory and salty, but I didn’t want to spoil my dinner and I wanted to limit the calories I ate for a snack. So, with that being said, I decided I would give a new recipe a try.
The grocery store that I shop at sells these little cheese crisps in a carton for close to $7.00 a package and I thought it was such a simple concept for a hefty price. I gave them one look and thought, “I can do that!” So, in the midst of my salty craving, I tried this recipe out and luckily it was a success! It’s delicious, gluten free, low carb, and make in a total of 10-12 minutes.
I only made one batch of 12 in the event that it was a fail, but you can make as many batches of chips your little heart desires.
Here is how I made these yummy cheddar chips…
Approximately 8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
Preheat oven to 375*. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and cut the paper to fit onto the sheet evenly. Next, eyeballing your measurements, sprinkle small piles of cheese on to the baking sheet.
Make sure you put about 1 inch in between each pile to account for the cheese to spread as it melts in the oven.
Once you have your cheese sectioned on to the baking sheet, place in the oven for 6-8 minutes.
Once you take the cheese out of the oven, it may still be bubbling which is just fine. As soon as it comes out, place each chip onto a paper towel to set. The cheese will harden up once it’s off the hot surface of the baking sheet and then becomes crispy.
After it’s sat for about 1-2 minutes, your chips are ready to place on a serving tray for you or your guests to enjoy. It’s that easy!
I gave one to Kelly as a taste test and he was sold! Very simple and yummy snack that was a hit. I have a strong feeling these will be making an appearance in our house again soon.
