This may sound silly but It may work for your cheetos.

I was making meringues once and wanted them to be pretty so I took my pastry bag, filled it with the fluffed egg whites and piped it into little spirally kiss shapes. It came out in a log shape and I just looped it over and on top to make it taller. . .

If you piped the cheesy puffed egg whites from a pastry bag, you could pipe out the log shape . If you had steady hands you could probably fill the sheet pretty full. a whole line of home made cheesy puffs.

just to add, I make my white like super thick, I use vinegar to wipe the bowl, cream of tartar to stiffen it and xanthan gum to stabilize it. It's pretty darn stiff and doesn't break down so easily so I can pipe pretty much all of it without it deflating much at all. I've got to try these cheese puffs to see if it works but all I have is mexican cheese.

Thanks for the recipe idea.

Made them lastr night

Oh they are so good. My little pan that I made I scarffed down
right away. I left the big pan overnight in the oven (I don't have a pilot
light) they were crispier this morning and I bagged 'em.

My tweak:

I used Dubliner cheese, it's an Irish cheese, maybe a type of cheddar
but different. It made them better than my sharp Tilamook did one
other time that I made them. I lightly sprinkled with the cheesy
powdered stuff but left off the Parm. They are almost irristable.
Used four ounces of the cheese.

Thanks Melle for this wonderful addition to our low carb munchables.

i made these tonight. i think i made them too big, but they were still good. i wouldn't compare them to cheetos at all. i put a little bit of peanut butter on the bottom (flat) side of the "puff" and it tasted like those orange peanut butter crackers. yum. so good!! thank you.

Thanks for the recipe idea! I can't wait to try it. It's a great way to use up egg whites too.

If leaving them in the oven makes them more crispy, maybe some time in a dehydrator would work too if you're making several batches.

I have not tried this mix but it sounds perfect for this recipe. It is from Penzey's spices:

Brady Street Cheese Sprinkle
Named after the well-known Italian street on Milwaukee's East side. Rich Romano cheese with Italian herbs and a touch of green peppercorn. Shake on garlic bread, salads and popcorn. Use 1 TB. per Cup sour cream or yogurt for vegetable/ chip dip, baked potatoes and salad dressing. Hand-mixed from: Romano cheese [made from sheep's and cow's milk, cheese cultures, salt, enzymes, disodium phosphate], salt, garlic, green peppercorn, sweet basil and minced parsley.

Maybe make Cheese Straws this way??

If I get time, I'm going to make these this weekend. Since I don't have any "butter spray", I'll be brushing them with melted butter. I do have a "canola spray", but I don't think the flavor would be as good.

FYI, you can find cheese powder at Whole Foods in the section with the jars full of spices and teas.
