Appetizer Recipes: Blue Cheese Crisps

These blue cheese crisps are one of my new favorite appetizer recipes because they’re nice and crispy and have so much flavor. These blue cheese crisps are perfect to serve alone, with a glass of wine or as an addition to a fruit plate for your next get together. And they’re surprisingly easy to make.

Confession…I’m not the biggest fan of blue cheese, but every once in a while I’ll have a blue cheese recipe that I really, really like. These blue cheese crisps are one of those recipes.

I have a habit of dreaming up recipes and hitting the kitchen head on without writing stuff down first. Sometimes this leads to discoveries of deliciousness and sometimes these leads to a disaster of a kitchen and a disgusting pile of something completely inedible. I should probably post some of my disasters, every once in a while there more funny than sad. These blue cheese crisps were one of those disasters.

For a change I actually wrote down a recipe before blowing into the kitchen to first make these. But the effort was for naught. The crisps turned out more like oozey black briquets. So much for being prepared. So I sat down and and re-worked the recipe a couple of times before finally coming out with these light as air and savory blue cheese crisps.

I love these for appetizer recipes because it always seems like I need something new to either serve to company or to take to someone’s house. These blue cheese crisps would be a perfect gift wrapped in a cellophane bag with a good bottle of red wine. In fact, you might even be able to grift if they decide to break out your gift that night. (SCORE!)

One of the other things that I really like about these blue cheese crisps is that they’re not overly cheesy. Meaning, the blue cheese flavor doesn’t dominate the crisp. The flavor just plays a nice part with the other ingredients giving them their savory flavor.

Now you have the perfect appetizer recipe for your next get together. These blue cheese crisps are perfect on their own, with a glass of wine or served alongside a beautiful fruit platter.

Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Serves: 3
Ingredients
  • 1½ Cups Flour
  • 1 Cup Walnuts, roughly chopped
  • ¼ Cup Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • ¼ Teaspoon Salt
  • 3 Tablespoons Melted Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • ⅔ Cup Beer
  • 1 4 Ounce Package Blue Cheese
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Add the first 7 ingredients to a large bowl and whisk to thoroughly combine everything.
  3. Add the next 3 ingredients to a second bowl and whisk to thoroughly combine.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and crumble in the blue cheese. Stir until everything is well blended.
  5. Pour into 3 buttered and floured 3"x6" mini loaf pans.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  7. Let loaves cool and remove from pans.
  8. To make the thin crisps, you'll need to slice the loaves and bake them again.
  9. Once the loaves have cooled to room temperature you can loosely wrap them and pop them into your freezer for about 40 minutes (this will make it easier to cut the slices thinly).
  10. Remove loaf from freezer (one at a time) and slice to about ¼" thick slices.
  11. Arrange slices on a baking sheet.
  12. Once the loaves are sliced and on the baking sheet you'll bake them for 40-50 minutes at 250 degrees Fahrenheit. The time varies depending on how thick or thinly you cut the bread.
  13. Remove from oven and let cool.
  14. Store in air tight zip top bag.

These look delicious! Do you have any suggestions for what I could use to replace the beer? I’ve never bought alcohol and wouldn’t know where to begin!

Hi Alice, these crisps don’t require any special kind of beer anything that you would buy would work fine. It’s for flavoring. If you really don’t want to buy beer, you could use water. The crisps just won’t have the same type of flavor.

I love homemade crisps like this! I am a fan of blue cheese, but this would be fun to make with other flavors, too. Very nice — thanks.

Thanks John. You could definitely use other cheeses in this recipe. I like the blue cheese because the flavor is strong enough to stand on its own in the mix of ingredients.
