Cheese Crisps Recipe

Ingredients:
1 cup grated hard cheese
Seasonings (optional) garlic powder, hot pepper powder, cinnamon, etc.

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Note on type of cheese: Hard cheeses, such as Parmesan, Romano, Asagio, etc, will make a crisp “shell,” whereas cheddar will be more chewy and “lacey” (the fat separates out), though still firm.

Toss cheese with any seasonings if desired.

Pile 1 to 4 tablespoons of cheese (depending on the size you want) on a baking sheet covered with a silicone mat or parchment paper oiled on both sides. Flatten the tops so they are in more or less even. There should be at least two inches between smaller mounds, 4 inches between larger ones.

Bake 5 to 6 minutes until they are a light golden brown (they will be a little darker at the edges). Watch as they get brown fast.

If you want to mold them into a shape, you want to “drape” them while still warm. You can make cups over an upturned glass, or “taco shell” shapes by draping over any cylindrical object that is at hand (rolling pin, side of glass)

Serving Suggestions: Fill with dip, salad. Or spread the flat ones with spread or eat plain.

Stuck in a Convenience Store Eating

Stuck in a Convenience Store

When you aren’t able to prepare your own meals, when in a bind such as a road trip, or near-famished state…..

Head for the refrigerated deli section. Lunchables are a great combo – just toss the crackers and have a meat and cheese spread. You can also find lean meat lunchables such as turkey. Find a packet of mustard to go with it.

Grab a microwaveable egg sandwich, remove the biscuit bun.

Go for the nuts and get some almonds, or macadamia nuts.

Look for cheese sticks.

Find beef jerky sticks, including beef and cheese combinations.

READ THE LABELS OF EVERYTHING YOU EAT. Make sure the ingredients satisfy your dietary needs.
