Crispy Cheese: The Best Kept Burger Secret

Crispy Cheese: The Best Kept Burger Secret

It's hard to believe there was a time when crispy cheese wasn't a standard in our burger spread. The crunch of golden cheese is a mouthwatering textural addition to any burger, plus it's quick and easy to make!




What you need:

  • LQC Mt. Moriarty* (4 thin slices or 1/4 cup shredded for each crisp)

*Mt. Moriarty is an aged alpine-style cheddar. We chose it here for flavour depth and optimal melting characteristics - not too flowy or stretchy, which is perfect for getting that crispy texture.


Stovetop directions:

Heat a skillet on medium-high. Add cheese to hot pan. When it begins to turn golden, flip it so the other side can crisp up as well.




Oven directions:

Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F). On a lined baking sheet, make little piles of shredded cheese spaced apart 2". Bake 7 min or until evenly golden.



  • Sliced cheese will make for a more substantial cheese crisp (see image in stovetop directions)
  • Shredded cheese becomes more delicate and "lacy" (see image in oven baked directions)
  • Try this as a base for appies!
