    I've just perfected the perfect cheese crisp in 4 minutes!

    Using 50g cheddar:

    210 calories
    17g fat (some comes out in cooking but most remains when it's left to reset for about a minute)
    12.5g protein
    0g carbs

    That's like the perfect snack surely?

    Anyway I got a shallow glass dish and covered the bottom with 50g cheese and microwaved for 2 minutes and 45 seconds. It came out perfect. One big cheese crisp.

    I'm not claiming to have invented this obviously as I had never heard of it before coming here but I thought it might be the perfect binge saver snack. Just before people are about to blow the diet and dive into the crisps and junk food one of these might just satisfy the junk food need in
    very quick time.

    As us food scientists have to make certain I made another one straight after. Perfect again!

    I made my first last night. 6 little piles of grated cheese on one of those blue baking sheets. They took about 15mins on 200c in a fan oven. Steve tried them this morning & said they were FAB! BTW, I sprinkled salt & pepper on them before they cooled :D
