This recipe for cheesy, crunchy, spicy goodness is easy to transport, and only takes a few minutes of preparation.
Red Pepper flakes or other seasoning of choice (e.g. smoked paprika)
About 28 Mini Croccantini crackers
10 oz. extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated fine
Arrange a rack in the center of oven and preheat to 475F
Spray a 10×15 inch jelly-roll pan (not shiny; recommended non-stick heavy brown or grey) with non-stick cooking spray, and arrange crackers in rows so that crackers are touching each other.
Sprinkle seasoning over crackers (if using), then sprinkle with pepper flakes. About 8 flakes recommended per cracker. Top evenly with cheese.
Bake for exactly 10 seconds then turn the oven off.
Leave in hot oven for approximately 15 – 20 minutes or until the crackers reach preferred level of crispness. Cheese should be light to medium brown.
Keep refrigerated until ready to eat. Should last up to 1 week, if you can wait that long.
