Cheese popcorn

I found a recipe, Gouda cut in small cubes, dry out of the fridge for 2 days, then bake for a few minutes. Two days out of the fridge? Wouldn't it get moldy?

I make cheese crisps in the microwave. I did Gouda ones last week. I have a silicon mold with 6 wells (for mini-tarts). I just put a half-slice of cheese in each well, stick it in the microwave for 2 minutes, take the mold out, and pop out the cheese crisps. They're similar to Cello Whisps.

My favorite is Havarti cheese, but the ghost pepper cheese ones I did a few days ago were nice and spicy (and crispy).

These days, with the practice I've had, I can make crisps out of a 12-slice package of cheese in about 10 minutes.

I have a question. After reading these posts, I googled to find out how to make the cheese crisps. It showed taking a still warm crisp and wrapping it around a wooden dowel and letting it cool to make a tube. What are some suggestions as to what you could put in that tube? They didn't show any.

Google "rharmelink imgur cheese crisps" and you'll find the two albums I put out there on how I make them in the microwave. I've since also used a mold with only 3 wells, one slice per mold, which gave me huge cheese crisps.

Most of the time they're wrapped around something, it's to make a taco shell. So I guess the cylinders could be taquitos?

You can fill them with a cream cheese filling or anything soft enough to "pipe".
Maybe pimento cheese? Tuna salad? Jalapeno popper dip?

I saw that recipe too and wondered how it would work. Though the one I saw said leave cheese on counter for 48hrs then cook at 200 for 3 mins.

Carol, Dottie was spot on. I'd be inclined to fill them with a dip. I imagine them filled with bacon, artichoke spinach, carmelized onion, wild mushroom, or sun dried tomato dips. They pipe best when slightly warm or room temperature, so if it's a homemade dip, pipe it before refrigeration. If you use a store bought dip, bring it to room temp first, then warm just a bit in the micro to make it pipe easier. Use a piping tube with a bigger opening (either plain or fluted) to save your hand muscles.

They'd make a delicious little nosh with an elegant presentation. Kinda like a mini savory cannoli!

Carol, I tried your idea last night. They are flippin' ADORABLE!! I used freshly grated Asiago, and they came out like lacy, crispy little tubes. Never got to fill them, though, as the hubs hoovered them nearly immediately. The dip would peek out of the "lace," had they lived long enough to get filled.

I used to form HC oatmeal cookies in this manner back in the day, but never thought to do it with these. Thank you for the idea!

I suspect it would depend on where you are. Here in AZ the air is so dry, that it probably wouldn't mold in two days. In a more humid climate, it might.

I think putting it in a dehydrator with no/low heat for a couple of hours would have the same effect

Do the cubes of cheese flatten out?
