Cheese Crisps

    yield: 2 servings
    prep time: 5 minutes
    cook time: 14 minutes

    These lacy cheese crisps are great when you’re craving something crunchy. There are so many uses for them—on a taco salad, with a dip, or just as a snack. You can season them however you like. I like to use Italian seasoning or leave them plain.

    • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    • 1 tablespoon seasoning(s) of choice (optional)
    • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

    2. Drop tablespoons of the cheese onto the lined sheet pan, spacing them at least 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with the seasoning of your choice, if desired.

    3. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, until the crisps are golden brown and have the desired crispness; watch closely at the end of the baking time to avoid burning them. Allow to cool before removing from the parchment paper; they will get crispier as they cool. The crisps are best if eaten the day they are made.


    You also can make these crisps in the microwave. Line a microwave-safe plate with parchment paper. Spoon small piles of cheese onto the parchment, spacing them 2 inches apart. Microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds or until the crisps start to brown. Allow to cool before removing from the parchment paper.
