Cheese Crispies (Gluten Free)

When I went gluten free almost a month ago now I wondered what on earth I was supposed to eat for snacks! I love crackers and cheese. Cheesy goodness along with crispy crackers. Perfection in my book! Plus I love the little extra protein boost in the afternoon from the cheese. As an alternative I came up with these cheese crispies. They are crunchy, they are cheesy, and they are ridiculously easy to make. All you need is a single ingredient, CHEESE!

Shred up some good cheese. So far I’ve only tried this with sharp cheddar but another flavor may work. Use a bar pan (with sides!) and make little piles of the shredded cheese on the pan. Do not grease the pan and do not use very much cheese in each little pile.

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 7 to 8 minutes or until the edges get a little brown and crispy. It’s ok if the middles don’t look “done” because they will crisp up as they cool.

Remove the Crispie from the pan and let it cool. You may want to let it cool on a paper towel to drain off some of the “grease” if that bothers you.

I store these in a bag in the fridge. They only last a few days in my house. Enjoy!

  1. Merissa,

    I’ve been making these for years, except I cook them on the stove in a frying pan. We call them “cheese chips” and my kids LOVE them!

  2. Okay, this is all that and a bag of organic potato chips 🙂 🙂 I love crispy cheese…and now I can have all the crispy cheese without all the other stuff 🙂 🙂 Thanks for posting this 😉 🙂 Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather 🙂 🙂 🙂

  3. I’ve made these unintentionally, like when I’m making quesadilla’s and the cheese falls out when i flip them over. I never thought to do it on purpose, lol. Thanks!

  4. My daughter (15) takes string cheese sticks & cuts them n half & microwaves them for about 30 sec; they melt nicely but not too hot. Then uses speg sauce or maranara sauce for dippng. Its way better than fried cheese sticks and just as yummy!!

  5. I have been making these for years with Parmesan and now with the cheddar thanks to you! Yummy could not enjoy anything more. When hot sprinkle with herb bread crumbs yummy and add to a bowl of hot soup. Thank you so much for all that you share with us. Luv luv your sight just luv it. I am so eager to learn and do then pass on to my children and grands…well thanks again.

  6. I usually make my own crackers, I put a thin slice of cheese on top and pop them in the Micro for 10-20 sec’s It looks just like these without the cracker! I am now going to try this with our home smoked cheese! Thanks for this! I love Cheese!!
