Microwave Cheddar to Make Keto Cheese Chips– No carbs, 1 Ingredient.
Microwave cheese: it’s a thing. I’ve always loved melting cheese, and recently I over-zapped some cheddar and it turned into a chip. What a happy mistake! It’s become my favorite snack at the beach. So simple and SO good. I’ve tried it with a variety of different kinds of cheese, and cheddar is the safest bet.
Not only simple, this snack is easy, fast and fun. It’s one ingredient and zero mess. It’s good either hot or refrigerated for next day. The chips taste like cheese straws, but they’re keto-compliant, meaning no carbs.
What is that 1 ingredient? You may have guessed it. It’s shredded cheddar.
The process is simple.
All you do is spread the shredded cheddar out so it’s flat in the middle unless you want a gooey doughnut effect. Then you put the plate in the microwave for about a couple minutes, or however long it takes until you hear sizzling and see the bubbling (probably at least 90 seconds if not two minutes). At that point the bottom will probably be hard enough to flip. Then you flip the cheese on the plate, and heat for another 90-120 seconds. Et voila! Keto cheddar chips
One reason I’m not so specific about time is that microwaves can also be different in terms of their strength, depending on how old they are. If your microwave is really strong, I would say test it one minute at a time and then look to see what’s going on. If it’s not bubbling yet, then shut the door and tap another 30 seconds.
To give you an idea of how much you can get out of this, one bag of shredded Kraft Cheddar cheese can give you two full-sized plates.
- Microwaving cheddar to make chips is awesome.
- 1 bag = 2 plates
- It takes a total 3- 4 min to make this.
- It’s great either directly off the hot plate or the next day served chilled.
