How do you keep the cheese from sticking to the pan?

Hi Frank, you could either use a non-stick pan, a silicon pan or a strong parchment paper. I hope this helps!

Your recipes look great.  Thank you.

We love cheese crisps and we like it hot! - oh, by the way there's a typo in instruction no 1 that will probably confuse newbies. Thanks 😊

Thank you so much! Copy & paste error - fixed! 😊
