One ingredient only! How easy is that? This is a crisp, delicate, lacy, pretty, fattening but delicious big cheese-it. I came up with this when I could not figure out any other delivery system for my cheese craving...haha. It can be used as a garnish for several things...let your imagination run free.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray a microwavable plate or pie dish with pam or coat with butter.
  2. Thinly layer the cheese on the plate and microwave for 30 to 40 seconds on high or until the cheese melts and is bubbly.
  3. Let cool till crisp then eat the darned thing!
  4. Yummy!

Loved this! Perfect snack when you aren't sure what you want. My little grandson could eat this all day. Am going to try using other cheeses as well.

What a fun and tasty snack, Amie! I also tried it using shredded taco cheese, also sliced American cheese. They were both good, too. I like to put the cheese on a piece of parchment rather than greasing a plate. It seems like it might cook a little faster and isn't quite as greasy.

I have made these as chip substitutes and they are fabulous for low carb dieters. However they often got eaten up by those who weren't doing the low carb thing before I could even get to them *pouts* Make sure they don't overcook.
