One Ingredient Cheddar Cheese Crackers

Cheddar Crackers

After experiencing cheddar cheese crackers made with just one ingredient, I wondered why we mess around with flour or butter or anything else in cheese cracker recipes.  These cheddar cheese crackers taste just like crunchy cheese.  They are super crisp and couldn’t be any easier to make.  Plus, they are gluten-free!

Spread the cheddar cheese onto a cookie sheet fitted with a Silpat or parchment paper.  Try to not have too much overlap (like a hill of cheese), but a little is OK.

Set your oven to 170 F and leave the cheese in the oven overnight (about eight hours).

When you open your oven, you’ll see that the cheese has hardened and joined together into one giant cheese cracker.  Wipe off any excess grease from both sides, break into cracker-sized pieces, and enjoy!

    Wow – interesting! I’m going to have to try this; I wonder if it will work with reduced, or fat-free, cheese? Thanks, I love cheesy crackers, but don’t eat them because, well, they’re bad for my diet (and oh, so addicting). Thanks!

    This looks so good! Do you think you could do this is a dehydrator? Thought maybe I could put it in one and leave it overnight. Just wondered how long and what temp. on the dehydrator. Thank you!

    My kids & I have been doing this for about 40 years! Can also slow fry in an iron skillet. Either way, ’tis delish ;-)
