Skip the expensive Keto snacks and Make your own Keto Cheese Crisps with this surprising and simple recipe hack!
One of the best things about my husband following a Ketogenic diet is having baked Keto Cheese Crisps in the house. Unfortunately, while cheese crisps are delicious, the store bought kind are not exactly budget friendly and not always that easy to find.
I was skeptical about making homemade Keto Cheese Crisps but when I stumbled across this recipe I just had to try it. I was thrilled when I was successful in creating them at home.
The texture is a little different than the store bought kind but making these Keto Cheese Crisps is crazy easy and the result is a really delicious (and slightly addictive) keto friendly snack!
About The Cheese Slices
This recipe uses Sargento Ultra Thin cheese slices. They are cut REALLY thin so they bake up thin and become crispy in a shorter period of time. Thicker sandwich slices (normal cheese slices) can be used to make these Ketc Cheese Crisps but the bake time may need to be extended (some readers have baked for 60 minutes) to allow the moisture to be released from the cheese.
How to Make Keto Cheese Crisps
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F and line one or two large baking sheets with nonstick parchment paper, depending on how large of a batch you are making.
Nonstick parchment is a very important part of this recipe. The nonstick parchment will allow the crisps the crisps to remove nicely after baking. In addition, it wicks away some of the oil that is released during the process and cleanup is a breeze.
There are 20 slices in the package and one half of the package fills one half sheet baking pan. Remove the paper between the slices and stack in an even pile. Cut the stack of slices into four pieces.
One slice at a time, lay them flat on the parchment paper lined baking sheet. While they don’t have to be very far apart, make sure that they are not touching.
Make sure that the baking rack is placed in the middle position of the preheated oven. Place the baking pan into the oven and bake for 35 minutes at 250 degrees F.
*Since I wasn’t really that sure that the recipe was going to work, I kept looking in the oven to see what was actually happening. It’s better if you don’t do this but they still turned out good. My family’s only complaint is that they aren’t as thick as Whisps.
After 35 minutes in the oven, remove and allow to cool on the baking sheet.
There is a lot of oil released when these bake so after they are cooled you may want to set them onto a paper towel to absorb the excess before serving.
They may take 12-24 hours to become the right degree of crispiness, so leave them exposed to room air until that happens and then store in a zip top bag. Enjoy!
