National Cheese day with Fried Cheese Chips

My guest chef today is Pastor Alan Kornacki.  Leave it to a pastor to post a recipe about something fried. Every had fried cheese? How about fried cheese chips? I'm sure this would be one unique appetizer recipe you could serve to your guest!

Let me know if you have any favorite cheese appetizers.

Here it goes:

I thought I'd share this with y'all so you know that I actually *do* make fried cheese chips. This is definitely *not* a low-fat recipe, but it is most delicious!

Fried Cheese Chips

Ingredients

1 bag Shredded Cheese (Kraft Aged Wisconsin Sharp Cheddar is a good choice)
1 pan hamburger fat (though BACON fat would be great!)

Directions

1. Heat fat to sizzling (If you're using burger fat, you may wish to season the fat with a favorite spice--we use Tony Chachere's Cajun seasoning)
2. Drizzle shredded cheese into pan fairly evenly and not too thick
3. Fry until cheese stops bubbling and becomes a yellow-brown (or whitish-brown for white cheeses)
4. Remove from pan with metal spatula
5. Let sit to cool and harden

Once it's cooled, you can eat it as is or crumble it to sprinkle on other foods. Not as good as bacon, of course, but it adds a nice flavor.

Note:
1)  Maybe I should add crumbled bacon to it! Yummmmmmmm!
2) I don't expect people keep hamburger fat around the house. We just do this after I make hamburgers for the family. EXCELLENT side-effect to frying hamburgers. And yes, I know it's not a healthy thing to eat. That's why I don't eat it most of the time.
