Helpful Tips and FAQs
Helpful Tips for making Low Carb Cheese Chips
Spacing on the sheet pan
When dropping cheese mounds onto the parchment, make sure you give space in between them for spreading. I recommend placing them about 2 inches apart to avoid sticking together.
Using dry parmesan cheese or freshly grated.
Freshly grated parmesan cheese will give you the best results because it has more moisture and will melt more quickly. If using dry, make sure that you mix it thoroughly. You may have to repeat mixing while you are scooping the cheese onto the sheet pan as the dry parmesan has a tendency to fall to the bottom of the bowl.
The thickness of the cheese piles
When placing mounds onto the parchment try to keep the cheese an even thickness. If they are uneven they may not spread or become as crispy as they should be. Spreading them too thin can cause them to burn and make them crack or fall apart when lifting them off of the paper.
How to get perfect round low carb cheese chips.
Use a small round cookie cutter on the parchment. Place the cheese into the cutter and spread it around the edges with your fingers. Remove the cutter and repeat for every chip. As long as they are a uniform thickness, you will get a consistent round chip.
This is especially nice if you are serving guests or appearance is important.
Adjusting baking times.
Keep a close watch on your cheese chips while they are baking. Oven temperatures may vary slightly and it is a good idea to watch the chips so that they will not be overdone or burned. When the edges begin to turn brown or almost grown, it is time to remove them from the oven.
Do I really need to put these chips on a cooling rack?
Yes, this is an important step. When the chips are no longer soft on the sheet pan, remove them with a thin spatula. Place them on a wire cooling rack. The air circulation around the chips will allow them to dry and get crisp.
Stored baked Cheese Chips in an airtight container for up to one week in the refrigerator or for up to 5 days at room temperature.
For freezing – Place them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 months. When defrosting, place them on a wire rack which will allow the air to circulate and moisture to evaporate.
If the cheese chips lose some of their crispness, you can place them on a parchment-lined pan in the oven again for a couple of minutes.
