Crispy snack from a microwave

January 08, 1992|By Nancy Byal | Nancy Byal,Better Homes and Gardens Magazine

In less time than it takes to shred cheese, you can fix these crispy cheese wafers in your microwave oven.

Use them in place of shredded cheese and croutons on salads, as a cracker topper, or serve with fruit. Fat may come out of the cheese cubes as they cook, so have paper towels handy to wipe the pie plate between batches.

Cheese Crisps

6 1/2 -inch cubes Jarlsberg, Swiss, or Cheddar cheese, about 1 1/2 ounces

All-purpose flour

Non-stick spray coating

Toss cheese with enough flour to coat. Spray nine-inch microwave-safe pie plate with non-stick spray coating. Arrange cheese cubes in pie plate, spacing cheese as far apart as possible. Cook on High for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 minutes or until golden and bubbly over entire surface. Use spatula to remove crisps from plate. Drain on paper towels. Cool before serving. Makes six.
