SCD Cheesy Snack

This is one of those too-easy recipes The Man dreamed up. Basically, take all the various cheeses you have in your fridge:

Any given day from our cheese drawer...

Peel off slices and arrange them on a plate. Shake your favorite spices on top. I like chives, paprika, and salt and pepper.

Add heat and make delicious.

Cook in the microwave for 90 seconds, or until you see a lot of bubbles on the surface of the cheese puddle. Remove from the microwave and serve as-is or peel off and serve some other way. Here they are almost all gone:

Bachelor cheese snack. Dangerous.

SCD Doritos

This is one of our recent favorite recipes. One of those too-much-of-a-good-thing kind of recipes, ahem. I had to stop making them.

SCD Doritos

1/2 lb grated cheddar

1/4 c peanut flour

1 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp paprika

Preheat the oven to 400F. Mix all of the above together in a bowl and spread out on a baking sheet like so.

Ready to go into the oven

Bake at 400 for about 10-15 minutes (keep an eye on it), until very browned. I usually roll the mass off the sheet in one piece while it’s warm, let it cool, and then break into smaller, bite-sized pieces. For some crazy reason, I don’t have a picture of the finished product. What the? Argh.

UPDATE! Photos!

Fresh out of the oven. Let it cool just a bit, but not completely. They need to be warmish before you peel them off with a spatula.

Peeling up the cooked cheese with a spatula--Silpat highly recommended.

Rolled up cooked cheese. Now let it cool completely before breaking into pieces.
