There aren’t many things I see online that have me literally jumping out of my seat the very minute I see it to give it a try! This was one of those things.
Of course it didn’t hurt that it was super simple…AND it involved CHEESE. So THANK YOU Erica at Stuff I Make My Husband. (By the way, she is a professional software developer by day and amateur boxer by night with an awesome must-read story!)
I’ve seen chefs on television make cheese crisps before…but they seemed a bit “over the top” and not necessarily worth my time. But it’s hard to say that about something that literally takes almost NO time to make.
For one thing, we ALWAYS have cheese sticks in this house. It is one of our “go-to snacks” for my son with Type 1 Diabetes and Celiac disease. Little to no carbs to count and no gluten! Win-Win! :-)
All I had to do was cut one of the cheese sticks up into 10 to 12 pieces and stick them in the microwave. Done! Cheese crisps!
Now if you want to get all “fancy” you can also add some herbs and/or spices.
I decided to try some with just a sprinkling of garlic powder and was very pleased with the results! Of course cheese and garlic together are probably one of my favorite combinations ever!
For those of you who are anti-microwave…I’m sure you can achieve the same results in a conventional oven. I would just hope that you would let the rest of us use our microwaves in peace. I understand that some people have strong feelings about the microwave…and I honestly don’t mind anyone sharing those opinions as long as it is done respectfully and without any questioning of people’s morals or character. I really do tire of that.
OK…enough of that. Just had to get that off my chest.
Now run try these! They are a delicious low carb treat for anyone who likes cheese! And who doesn’t like cheese???? :-)
(Confession time: I ate so many of these while “experimenting” with the idea…I did make myself sort of sick! Warning….this does have the potential of being “too much of a good thing”!) :-)
“Easy Cheesy” Cheese Crisps
1 cheese stick
Cut cheese stick up into 10 to 12 pieces. Place each piece into a cupcake mold or on a plate. Microwave on High for 30 seconds. Then continue to cook in microwave for 15 second intervals until browned and crispy.
For awhile they will remain a little chewier than crispy, but a few hours later they were nice and crisp….great for dipping!
I hope you like them as much as I did! :-)
