Homemade Cheese Crisps – Gluten Free and Low Carb
It is Monday Munchie time and I want to share with you one of my favorite SUPER simple snacks. It is low carb, gluten free and you can do so many things with them.
These can be made with any type of cheese you like but I tend to stick with the harder cheeses like parmesan and asiago. I have made taco shells from cheddar and mozzarella cheese before and they were pretty good. Stay tuned for that recipe on another Monday Munchie.
Homemade Cheese Crisps- Gluten Free and Low Carb
I like to use about 1/4 cup of my favorite hard cheese for each crisp. You can make them bigger or smaller depending on what you are going to do with them
On the stove top
Place a pan on the stove over med-high heat. Let it heat up about 3 minutes. You want the pan to be super hot. Place the desired amount of cheese in the pan. Use a spatula to move the cheese around to get the right size. The pan is hot so be careful. Cook the crisps according to your preference. Do not flip the crisps. Remove the pan from the heat and let them cool before you remove them from the pan. Store in a glass container- they stay fresh about a week.
In the oven
Preheat oven to 400°.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Spoon cheese by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Spread each mound to a 2-inch diameter. Sprinkle mounds with any herb that you might like or just leave them plain. Bake at 400° for 4 to 6 minutes or until crisp and golden. Cool completely on baking sheet. Remove from baking sheet using a thin spatula. Store in a glass container- they stay fresh about a week.
My favorite things to do with homemade cheese crips:
- Use as a chip for your favorite dips
- Use as a tostada shell
- Top with a scrambled egg
- Just eat it naked- Gosh the crips not you
- Top it with fresh basil and olive tapenade
- Crunch it up and throw it in your soup or salad
Here are some other recipes you can try as well. The opportunities are endless.
I could go on and on. I would love to know what you think if you try them.
Do not forget you can also buy the crisps already made in the store. They will be pricey but good if you are in pinch for time.
