It's Time To Start Making Cheese Crisps In Your Air Fryer
By Allison Lindsey
It's easy to get a box of cheese crisps from the grocery store, but if you're craving a mini culinary adventure, whip out some cheese and get your air fryer ready.
Making air fryer cheese crisps only requires lining your air fryer with parchment paper, cutting some cheese, and frying them until they're crunchy.
You can make cheese crisps from shredded or whole cheese slices — if you opt for shredded cheese, arrange the shreds closely together and lay them flat.
A general guideline for cooking time and temperature is about five minutes at 375 degrees F, but you can always open up the air fryer basket for a quick eye test.
A firm, low-moisture cheese is your best bet for high-quality cheese crisps. Parmesan, cheddar, and Gruyère are great selections for ultra-crunchy cheese crisps.
Cheese that contains more moisture, like mozzarella, feta, or ricotta, may not be suitable for achieving a proper crunch. Ultra-soft cheeses like brie or camembert are also a no.
