Recipe Comments & Reviews

These crunchy cheddar bites are very, very dry - so dry they cause gagging. It's possible that I did not bake them long enough, although I followed the directions carefully.
This recipe was very bland, I think, mainly, because it did not have any salt in it. I sprinkled salt on them and that helped. The texture is good, with a nice crunch. If I made these again, I would add salt and as your other reviewed mentioned, green onions. However, my eight year old nephew loved them very much.
Add minced green onion.
for a twist.yum.
