Use cooking spray to cover an 8-inch skillet. Turn the heat to medium-high.
Sprinkle the pre-shredded cheese from the container into the pan. The layer should be pretty thin, but you shouldn't be able to see the bottom of the pan. Cook the cheese until it starts to "pop." Turn over, and cook briefly on the other side. You want the cheese to be crispy, but not brown.
Remove from pan. The cheese should still be a little flexible. It will harden up as you let it cool. Let it rest on a plate. Repeat until you've used up all the cheese. Break into large pieces, and serve. These are rich, but delicious.
1 container sour cream
Mix all ingredients. Refrigerate. Serve with crackers and a bag of pre-mixed, pre-cut vegetables. This dip is especially good with snow peas.
marinated broiled shrimp
1-2 pounds raw frozen shrimp, 20-30 shrimp per pound, peeled if desired
Marinate peeled shrimp in your marinade of choice for 4 hours. Don't marinate too long, because the acidity will "cook" the shrimp.
Preheat broiler, and make sure the broiling rack is as close to the heat as possible. Place marinated shrimp on cookie sheet, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, turning once. Serve hot or cold.
