  • 1/2 cup cheese *see types below


Method One - Stovetop

  • Spread shredded cheese evenly on a non-stick frying pan. 1/2 cup of shredded cheese should cover a 7" pan (if you want a different sized wrap, just add enough cheese to coat the bottom of the pan). Add seasonings of choice, if desired.

  • Cook cheese for 5 minutes on medium-low heat. The cheese will start to bubble as it cooks, and the bubble will get smaller the longer it cooks. After about 5 minutes the cheese should have lots of small bubbles, get darker in color, and look crispy. This is when you know it's done.

  • Remove pan from heat and let sit for 5 minutes to allow cheese wrap to cool. Then, remove the wrap using a spatula and enjoy with your favorite fillings!

Method Two - Microwave

  • Spread shredded cheese evenly on a 6" microwave-safe plate (made of a material that the cheese will peel off of, such as ceramic or plastic). Add seasonings of choice, if desired.

  • Microwave for one minute and 15 seconds. Microwave strength varies, so you may need more or less time. Your cheese wrap should be bubbling and slightly crispy when it's done. If it turns brown around the edges it's a little overdone. If it's not bubbly in the middle then it needs a little more time.

  • Remove from microwave and let cool for 5 minutes. Dab any excess grease with a paper towel, then peel the wrap off of the plate and enjoy!
