Baked cheese forms a crispy and salty snack.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Very lightly oil a cookie sheet with olive oil, or use a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. Put small piles or folded slices of cheese onto the cookie sheet leaving sufficient space between for spreading.
  3. Turn the oven on 'Broil' and put the cheese in.
  4. Watch carefully. It may take a little practice to learn timing. When bubbles slow down slightly and at first sign of browning, it's time to take them out.
  5. Take out the cheese chips when edges are slightly brown and gently remove them using a thin spatula. Place on towel covered plate to cool.
  6. When cooled, use just as you would chips for snacking or dipping into homemade sauces.
  7. To store, wait until fully cooled and pack between layers of waxed paper in a shallow dish.

Notes

Variations:

  • sprinkle with green onions or chives before baking
  • add a dash of spice of choice such as basil, chili powder, cumin, cajun seasoning, or curry powder
  • top each with a thin slice of jalapeño 
  • make cheese piles a little larger and place them in a bowl immediately after removing from the pan to form a cheese chip "boat" to use as a taco salad shell
