Monterey Cheese Crisps

"Quick low-carb snack. I find that these work better than some similar recipes that use shredded cheese. The spices on these really 'pop' too - Yum!!!! I've also used Colby-Jack cheese, and it works great."

directions

  • Preheat oven to 400*.
  • Slice cheese into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
  • Place slices 3 inches apart on nonstick baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle with garlic powder and cayenne pepper.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown - watch closely. Making sure they're golden brown is important - this will ensure they 'crisp' as they cool.
  • Leave crisps on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes, then carefully place crisps on paper towels to finish cooling.
  • These store well in an airtight container.

    I really loved this recipe, and found that cheese does matter in this sort of thing. I can't imagine trying anything else besides Monterey Jack cheese for such a recipe. I also had trouble cutting them in 1/4 inches, so they came out a little thicker, which didn't bother me at all.

    Such a great recipe, I made these with extra large cheese slices and ate them as tostadas. Delicious. Thanks so much!

    If you like Cheez-it crackers you will LOVE this. I love cheese, however, I do not like Cheez-it crackers at all, so it did not go over so well. But if you are searching for a replacement for Cheez-it crackers this is an almost EXACT replica of the flavor (especially if you use really quality sharp cheddar). So low-carb dieters rejoice, there is a cracker replacement!

    I do these slowly in a non stick skillet. Can also do cheddar or mozzarella
