Thanks, Challenge Buddies! Haven't tried the cheese crackers in the oven, but I've seen a recipe that you do on top of the stove in a non-stick pan (I'd use some Pam anyway). I'll look for it later.

I think they'd work in the oven - maybe line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, put your cheese down and pop it in the oven 375 - 400 degrees and watch them. Understand, I'm making this up...never done them in the oven.

I just wanted to share this
All of my co workers are essentially my guinea pigs on the majority of the recipes I am trying out here
I am a pretty exceptional cook (toot toot - ) so they are ALWAYS interested in what I bring to eat, be it breakfast, lunch, snacks, ect.
They know my WOE is Atkins so I LOVE breaking their misconceptions that Atkins is just meat and few choices
BTW, I made these cheese crackers at work today to go with my salad at lunch time. I sprinkled mine with black pepper and onion powder. The first batch went SO fast, I had to make ANOTHER so that I could have a few

The Linda's Low Carb recipe for Cheese Crisps is delicious! (You grate the cheese first, put it in circles and then microwave it on parchment). They are addictive.

Ok help! I've tried to make these twice now. No luck. What am I doing wrong.

1st time I used sharp cheddar slices on a plate. These just melted and then fried (they did not puff, they got super thin and hard with little bubble holes in them - no browning)

2nd I used wax paper (is this parchment paper?) and same thing, used sharp cheddar in small squares for the 65 seconds. they fried. super thin, super crispy, and completely unable to separate it from the paper.

so help! i really want to make these!

thanks

Readyfreddy, first: You need Deluxe American Cheese Slices - whatever the brand it should say "Deluxe American Cheese Slices." Any cheese won't work. And parchment paper is NOT wax paper. Parchment paper may be with the various wraps (wax paper, aluminum foil, saran) or it may be in the baking section. The label, whatever the brand will read: "Parchment Paper."

You pretty much made Cheese Crisps, also on Linda's Low Carb site, which I love, but if you want the Cheez-its, you gotta do it her way.

Good luck! Hope this helps.

The parchment paper will keep them from sticking. I also use it at Christmas when baking cookies. It's almost impossible to burn or scorch the bottoms using it

One recipe she had also stated that the bags of pre grated cheese worked best. I'm not sure if this is the same one because there are a couple similar ones!

I have used different seasonings on mine. I like black pepper, onion powder & chili powder real well. I also made some sprinkled with the basic Mrs.' Dash.
If you figure like this : 1 piece of cheese will make 16 smaller pieces. So 1 serving is 16 pieces = 60 calories and 1 carb I LOVE IT!
