Spicy Lacey Cheese Crisps

When you receive a blog assignment whose author is a registered dietitian your hands start to sweat a bit.  Heart races, blood pressure inches up and a panic attack seems imminent.  Then, as you read through the blog, you start to calm and tell the 911 operator that you dialed the wrong number. Such were my feelings when I received Erin’s blog, WholesomeRD.  Then, when I decided on the recipe that I was going to make I was cool, calm and collected.  There were LOTS and LOTS of great recipes.  As Erin says, “Here you’ll find tasty and (mostly) healthy recipes!”  And she is exactly right!  But when I saw this one, the search was over.  At least for the moment. My husband and I were scraping the cheese “scraps” from our oven baked tacos the other night.  We almost got in a knock down drag out over who was going to get the little crispy cheese goodies in the bottom of the pan.  Mountain Man said, “Wow, I’ll bet just some cheese in the oven would be really good!”  And I couldn’t agree more. (Then he told me to get my fingers out of the pan.) It was a moment of epic proportions. Yet, I hadn’t done anything about capitalizing on his idea. Until now. Enter Erin’s recipe for Spicy Cheese Crisps. Someone pinch me.  At least, check my pulse.  Make sure I haven’t died and gone to heaven! 5.0 from 2 reviews Print Spicy Lacey Cheese Crisps Author: Suzanne Collier, adapted from WholesomeRD Recipe type: appetizer Prep time:  10 mins Cook time:  7 mins Total time:  17 mins Serves: 10   Quick, easy, and a good thing that it makes about 60 crisps.
