I can turn a 12-slice package of cheese into cheese crisps in less than 10 minutes (4 batches; 3 slices per batch; 2 minutes per batch). You can use silicon cupcake molds, but I find the 3-well and 6-well silicon trays so much easier to load and unload. I’ve created crisps with sliced cheeses, sliced off from blocks, and shredded. They all work.
But you really need the silicon molds to keep their shape and texture consistent. I used to make them on parchment paper or a silicon mat, and they tend to spread all over when the cheese gets molten.
But $7.76 for a commercial bag of 269g is a real good price. My usual commercial version – Cello Whisps – are $14.99 for that size bag.
I just bought silicone molds to make cheese taco shells.
I have to get around to trying this.
Cheese taco shells what a great idea!
