Cheese Crackers – Recipe

Anyone who’s ever done a low-carb diet knows this recipe .. These “crackers” are simple to make, taste great and can be used for a whole bunch of things whatever your dietary requirement might be.. unless it’s no cheese in which case you’re pretty much out of luck and should stop reading now!

You can use whatever cheese takes your fancy – within reason. I tend to use edam cheese and parmesan cheese. Cos they’re my 2 fave ‘every day’ cheeses i.e.: I always have them on hand.

Basically all you need is:

Slices of cheese – however many you want to make. Approx. 3mm thick. But it doesn’t matter cos they’ll melt out and just be huge if you use thick slices.
1 baking tray – ungreased / unlined.

Told you this was simple!

Heat the oven to 200 deg C.

Place the cheese slice on the cold tray allowing lots of room for ‘spread’! On a standard size oven tray I put 8 and it was pretty hair raising toward the end!

Pop into the oven and let them melt to a lovely golden (bubbling / lacy) consistency. A few mins is all this should take.

Remove from the oven. You’ll freak out when you see all the fat around the slices – I mop that up and get rid of it then when the slices have cooled slightly, I place the ‘crackers’ onto a cooling rack and leave them to go hard.

These keep for ages, couldn’t be simpler to make and are very versatile. Try rubbing the slices of cheese with garlic before baking. Or sprinkle your fave herb (paprika was nice) or chilli on them asap you take them from the oven so it melts into the cheese.
