One of the things that those of us who stop eating grains miss, is a salty crunch. We can have a lot of creamy fatty things such as the dip that a cracker usually goes into. But finding a crunchy substitute is difficult. Well kids, have I got an amazing alternative. Nay! Alternative is not the right word. Improvement! Yes! That’s the word. I have an improvement to those unhealthy, spare-tire causing crackers that we used to eat. Screw those little elves that live in the tree and conspire to make us diabetic with their “elfkin magic”. We have have something much more magical and their called: Cheese crackers! These babies are 100% cheese and nothin’ else!
Gather Your Choice of Cheese
Your cheese of choice (I recommend, cheddar, mozzarella, and monterey jack)
Next, place on the parchment paper (this is a crucial step! Wax paper or no paper, doesn’t work as well.)
Next, place in microwave. Because each microwave varies so greatly, you will need to “tweak” your own times.
Set your microwave to about 1 1/2 minutes and check the cheese. It should become a golden brown. You may need to spin the paper to the other side for another 30 seconds or so.
Initially, the cheese may still be somewhat pliable. They will crisp up as they cool.
This shows two full sized crackers (thus, 8 crackers)
