With the cold weather in full force, I’ve been creating soups and stews for lunch and dinner. As an accompaniment I usually use crackers or a small piece of bread. My cousin recently showed me how to make these Cheddar Cheese Crisps and I just love them! They are great for dipping in Cream of Broccoli soup! My son prefers just to chow right in and eat them solo. Best part? You only need four simple ingredients to create these Crisps.
Two teaspoons of flour
One cup of shredded cheddar cheese
First let me state that for this batch I was using Fat Free Cheddar which was pre-shredded in larger pieces. This is the cheese I prefer my son to consume. I have found however if you a prefer a more “solid” look to the crisps, used a more finely shredded cheddar.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Mix the flour and cheddar cheese together in a bowl. Then add salt and pepper to your taste and liking. I prefer no salt and a little pepper when I’m making these for my son. If I’m the only one consuming them, I’ll add the tiniest pinch of salt, and then load on the pepper!
Take a baking sheet and place either parchment paper or lightly oiled aluminum foil. I found the parchment paper works better. However if it is unavailable, this recipe does work with lightly greased or oiled aluminum foil. Take a spoon and scoop 1 tablespoon worth of the cheese mixture, and place onto the sheet. You can press down on the mound to flatten a bit.
Back your already heated oven for anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes until the little “patties” are crisp. Let them cool a minute, remove from the sheet, and take a bite!
We love these little snacks! Keep in mind that you can use other cheeses! We have also made Pepper Jack Crisps and Monterrey Jack Crisps. However my son just loves the Cheddar ones. In fact I just made another batch yesterday and they went great with the Tomato Bisque I had earlier today.
So there you go! Fairly simple to make, and you only need 4 ingredients. You can bake them as snack or use them with your soups or other meals. Enjoy!
