Cheese Crisps
« on: January 26, 2017, 07:27:49 PM »
Take a slice of cheese or a flat pile of shredded cheese & bake it at 350°F (175°C) for 10-15 minutes until it gets crisp. You wouldn't think they'd get as crisp as they do, but if they're chewy at first, just bake 'em a little longer.

I've used cheddar, longhorn colby, pepper jack, provolone . . . and they're wonderful. Pepper jack crisps are just to-die-for!

Be sure to use parchment paper on the pan when you make these, because they'll glue to the pan if you don't. Waxed paper or regular foil is not an option - although I've heard Reynolds makes a non-stick release foil that works.

I do this in the microwave all the time!!  Doesn't take long (30 sec to 1min, time may vary per you oven, keep an eye on it) and the parchment paper is crucial!

Pepperoni slices crisp up nicely too!!  You just have to keep an eye on them until you know how long it takes for your micro.

I made some of these today in the Microwave and they came out really good.  I cooked them a total of 2 min. to get them as crispy as I wanted and it worked quite well.
