.......Turn them into cheese crispy's.

Here's some made of smoked cheddar and jack cheese. Then topped with some pepper and thyme. Baked on parchment paper at 380 for 8-10 minutes.

Hmmm....looks very interesting.  I think I'll have to give these a try!  Do you bake them or broil them?

Yes they do look lovely
.

I do something similar here using Parmesan cheese - though they are usually smaller. It can add a fun twist to place a small ice lolly stick into the cheese before they are baked and then they can be eaten like lollipops.

Yes, as I noted in my original post  "Baked on parchment paper at 380 for 8-10 minutes.    Whatever you do, do NOT apply any salt for the cheese already has that covered.  You can also experiment with different spices such as tarragon, oregano, rosemary, etc.  Just don't over do it.  Also, when you pull it out of the oven, you might need to gently pat off some of the oil that oozed out of the cheese.  As soon as they cool down, I will put them in a ziplok bag.

Back when the kids were young we used to do this but when the cheese disks were made the kids wold put a little pizza sauce on them then topping of choice then back in oven under the broiler or a min or two.  Kids loved them.

I need to try this again with smoked cheese.

These are not actually mine but are using a similar recipe but it gives you the idea of the lollystick

To be honest though Craig I think yours look better 



Parmesan and poppy seed lollies

I used to do this with parmesan and use it as a starter in the restaurant.

You have other shaping options too - while they are still warm and a little pliable try (depending on size) laying them over an upturned teacup or ramekin. For smaller discs you can press them into an egg box and these will give you mini cheese bowls.

Another option is rolling around a wooden spoon to give a pipe or, if you've got the eye for it, roll into a mini ice cream cone shape.

The biggest selling one I ever did was the 3 cheese sundae! A parmesan cone stuffed with goats cheese mousse (derind some goats cheese and place in a blender with cracked black pepper, some double / whipping cream and blend till light and fluffy. This can then be piped into the cones.) these were topped with chopped chives and a mini cheese straw for a 'flake'.

Looked great and a brilliant canapé to make. To serve them, simply drill some holes big enough to hold the cones into a disc of perspex or a nice lump of wood!
