Recipe: Just Cheese Crackers

KODAK Digital Still Camera

This is a quick and easy way to have a salty and crunchy snack food to replace chips or pretzels. They keep well and can be modified based on what type of cheese you use and can have spices added to them.


  • 3 slices of deli sliced cheese, any type (I used white cheddar)
  • spices or flavorings to sprinkle on top (optional)


Preheat oven to 250 deg F. and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

Take each slice of cheese and cut it into 4 equal pieces. Place cheese squares on the parchment with space between them so they don’t melt together when baking. Sprinkle with seasonings if you are using them, and don’t forget to add the spices to your total carbs.

Place in the oven for 40 minutes. Remove the cheese from the oven and allow to cool a few minutes, long enough to be able to flip them over on the sheet pan. Replace the pan in the oven for another 15 – 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool, then place the squares on a piece of paper towel to blot the grease from the crackers. Cover with another paper towel and blot gently. The crackers can be stored in a plastic bag after fully cooled.
