These low carb bacon cheddar cheese crisps will remind you of a low carb version of a potato chip. Crunchy and satisfying!
Today I was inspired to make cheddar cheese crisps for myself instead of just buying it. And given the version you buy at the store costs five times more and is full of over processed ingredients, I am happy to make these at home. I have recently discovered these delicious things called cheese crisps or cheese chips and I am hooked.
At the store they are super expensive and really only seem to come in one or two varieties. They are super easy to make too, so why not save money and do it yourself?
Plus if you do it yourself you can add bacon. And who doesn't like bacon?
You can do any number of different combinations of these, this recipe is for low carb bacon cheddar cheese crisps.
I actually recommend hiding these tasty snacks in the fridge because they will go fast!
You can eat them by themselves, they are delicious. Or dip them in your favorite low carb dip. Either way these are insanely satisfying.
As I mentioned, you can make these in any number of flavors and varieties, which I love. Bacon and cheese are a perfect match, and I can easily imagine at least ten variations of this recipe.

Low Carb Bacon Cheddar Cheese Crisps
- I cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2-3 slices cooked bacon
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Line a baking sheet (or two) with parchment paper.
- Using a measuring spoon, drop 1 tbsp piles of cheddar cheese about 2 inches apart (the cheese will spread so don't put them too close) on the baking sheet.
- Chop up bacon into tiny ¼" or smaller pieces. Sprinkles about ½ teaspoon onto each pile of cheese.
- Bake for 5-8 minutes (may vary, keep a close eye on them).
- Remove from oven and lift parchment paper and place on cooling racks.
- Dab tops of crisps with a paper towel to remove some of the excess grease (this is optional but if you don't do it, your crisps may be soggy - still yummy, but soggy - if you didn't cook them long enough).
- Store in an air-tight container or in the refrigerator.
