Cheese, garlic & chive crisps

Not a potato in sight! These would be perfect for people following a low carb diet. They are also perfect for cheese lovers! They are deliciously crispy and tasty, I would serve these as a snack at a party/buffet. I used fresh chives from my garden, but dried would work. You could try changing the toppings to whichever herbs/spices you like. Try varying the cheese too.

4 square slices of Edam cheese (from the packs you get of pre-sliced cheese but NOT processed cheese)
3 inches of fresh chives, snipped
A few pinches of garlic powder

Preheat the oven to 170c. Line two baking sheets with greaseproof paper. THIS IS IMPORTANT, they will stick to foil/nonstick trays! Cut each square of cheese into 4 quarter squares. Spread on the baking sheets, top with snipped chives & a tiny pinch of garlic powder. Place in the oven for about 15 minutes, or until the edges turn golden brown. Remove from the oven, and carefully remove the greaseproof paper with the cheese from the tray, and place on a cool surface. Le the cheese completely cool (this doesn't take long) and then serve! They crisp up beautifully.
