Taken from You can sprinkle a pinch of spice on the slice before microwaving to flavor it. Basil, black pepper, garlic, onion, taco seasoning. Anything you can imagine. I was trying to figure out what to do with American cheese and this makes it actually palatable.


  1. Sprinkle slice of cheese with pinch or whatever seasoning you want.
  2. Cut slice into 16 pieces.
  3. Arrange on the outer edges of a flat, non-stick surface such as a silicone bake sheet or parchment paper about 1.5-2 inches apart. If you use a plate, the slanted edges will cause the cheese to run towards the center. Too close and the pieces with melt together.
  4. Microwave for 1 minute, it will start to look slightly golden.
  5. Microwave for an additional 30 seconds, checking to make sure it doesn't burn.
  6. Remove from microwave and non-stick surface. Let cool. The final product isn't very pretty but for a total of two minutes, this recipe is amazing.
