Cheezies….An Appetizer

This recipe was from my aunt, Marilyn Lyman. I was going through her recipes one day & came across this typewritten recipe for Cheezies… they are a homemade cheese kind of cracker ….The image I get when I think of these is having them at a cocktail party, with the men & woman dressed to the nines.. chatting , drinking martinis & having these lovely little cheese crackers ….

The recipe is a bit vague… I tried them 2 different ways. One as it was written on the card.. mixed by hand…they were a bit crumbly& chunky… I tried them again using the food processor & they came out more to my liking..the texture was smooth & the cracker was not crumbly’

I took them to the perogy making day I went to & everyone loved them. I actually took the first batch & they were a big hit! So which ever way you make them, I hope you enjoy them.

I have no idea the origin of the recipe of the year it is from, but I think it is an older recipe because one of the ingredients is potato chips!

I would serve them part of a cheese board, just as an appetizer, as a snack, with some antipasto…. any way you eat them they are good!

Here is the recipe


1/4 cup butter, softened

1 tsp dry mustard

1/2 cup flour

1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese , loosely packed

1 cup crushed potato chips


Preheat oven to 375f   Line a biking sheet with parchment paper

  1. Cream the butter & dry mustard together. I did this by hand & another time I did this in the bowl of my food processor…your choice
  2. Add the flour, grated cheese & crushed potato chips  Mix well
  3. If you are using a food processor add the flour, cheese & potato chips to the bowl & pulse until well combined
  4. Drop onto the baking sheet & flatten with a fork
  5. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
