I received samples of Cabot cheese at no charge to use in this easy cheese recipe however all opinions expressed here are my own.
If there is such a thing as a cheese addiction, I am pretty sure I suffer from it. Whether it is on a sandwich, in a casserole, or sprinkled on top of nachos I am firmly believe that everything tastes better with cheese on it. At this particular moment, my refrigerator is holding blue cheese, feta, Parmesan, brie and some delicious bars from Cabot that I received recently to review. Always nice to have a selection to choose from, right?
Since deciding to try a gluten free diet last month, I have had to make some drastic changes to my diet. No more snacking on cheese crackers or munching on traditional grilled cheese sandwiches or pasta. I think I am starting to suffer from withdrawal! To appease my craving I started browsing around for gluten free cheese recipes. I came across an easy cheese recipe that would make a delicious snack and includes no grains at all. Perfect for dipping in some hot salsa, these cheese crisps were easy to make and very tasty. If you are looking for a gluten free snack, you should definitely give these a try!
Gluten Free Cheese Crisps
- 1 cup shredded Cabot extra sharp cheddar
- 1 cup shredded Parmesan
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and spray with non stick spray
- Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well
- Place small piles of the cheese mixture on the lined cookie sheet. You want about 1 to 2 TBSP in each pile, flatting them down slightly and leaving about 1 inch or so between them.
- Bake approximately 10 minutes. They should be thin, bubbly, and lightly brown.
- Remove cookie sheet from oven and let cool 1 to 2 minutes
- Using a wooden spoon handle, gently fold/wrap the cheese crisp into a tube shape
- Place on a paper towel to drain and cool
- Serve with a side of salsa
- (note: the longer you leave them in the oven, the crispier they get when cool!)
