Too easy! One ingredient! This was inspired by the crispy cheese hanging off the renowned cheeseburgers at Shady Glen, the burger/dairy restaurant in Manchester, CT. In fact, I understand they used to sell just a basket of crispy cheese. I like to snack on it, but it would also make a terrific garnish for fancier soups, salads, etc. I have done this with Cheddar (my favorite), Jack, Parmesan and American, all with good results. On the one hand, it seems to be one of those “guilty pleasures.” On the other hand – read the last cooking note at the bottom...
Added Note: Although I was inspired by Shady Glen, I just found out the Italians have been doing this for years, and it is called "Frico". Some versions are baked, and it can be molded while warm, say to make a dish to hold olives, or to eat like a taco or tortilla, or it can be used to garnish fancy salads and more.
