We use pre-sliced cheddar cheese for this recipe, it’s already sliced thin and makes it easier to cut into squares.

The baking can get pretty messy with the cheese popping around, we place the cheese on the lower shelf and cover the base of the top shelf with foil for easier cleanup.

This recipe makes 4 serves.

Please note that the weather has a huge impact on how long you will need to dry your cheese for. This recipe was developed in very dry conditions. It may take up to 72 hours drying time, depending on your local weather.

The Keto popcorn cheese puffs can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week, if they last that long!

  1. Hi! I was wondering if these would be possible to season? I have keto ketchup and garlic seasoning (dry spices). If so, when would you season? Before drying out? Before putting in oven?
    Thanks!

  2. Hello, I am just getting back in to keto and this might be the thing that helps me stay.

    I was wondering if you would share the brand names of the cheeses you have success with. I want this to be a bang on recipe and I think using what you did will give me the hand up on getting you success!

    Thanks for all your hard work. Great site!

    • Hi Junnetta,

      I’m not sure if our cheese brands will help, as we may not be in the same country! Try looking for hard craftsmen style cheeses like vintage cheddar.
