  • sheet pan
  • parchment paper
  • Knife - I love using my cheese knife
  • Straw


  • 2 oz Cheese - Use Cheddar or a cheddar jack blend. Blocks or the pre-sliced sandwich size.
  • Pinch of salt


  • Preheat the oven to 275F/135C.
  • Slice the cheese into small squares about 1x1 inch and around 1/8th of an inch thick.
  • Now line a sheet pan with parchment paper and place the cheese squares about an inch and a half apart.
  • Poke holes if you want in the middle with a straw. But, honestly, that doesn't matter as the cheese melts the hole gets filled in anyways, haha.
  • Next, sprinkle on a tiny bit of salt. Or you can leave the salt off entirely.
  • Bake the cheese in the oven, middle rack, for 20 to 25 minutes until it melts and gets a little brown around the edges.
  • Let them cool for about 5 minutes before eating them. Enjoy!
