No matter which NFL team you're pulling for, I hope cheese will be part of your party action to contribute good nutrition that includes high-quality protein as well as calcium,phosphorus, and vitamin A. I've collected our favorite snack foods for the game but I think I may have to add this Dairy Makes Sense recipe to the list just for fun!
Co-Jack Cheese Crisps
Non-stick cooking spray
1 package (8 ounces) finely shredded Colby-Monterey Jack Cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Place 2 teaspoons Colby-Monterey Jack cheese mounds 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Press mounds gently with fingers to flatten. Bake until mounds are thin, bubbly and golden, no more than 6 to 8 minutes. Immediately transfer crisps to paper towels with a metal spatula. Serve when crisps have cooled completely.
Hint: Baking too long will make crisps too hard and not easily removed from the baking sheet.
Tip: May be baked one day ahead and crisped before serving in oven at warm setting, for 4 to 5 minutes.
