There’s real bacon in those chips. Remember the dog treat commercial? Bacon, bacon bacon! That’s how I feel on my low carb diet. Ok – yes, moderation is key for any eating plan.

How to make bacon cheddar cheese chips

So this is how we bring home the bacon. It’s 2 ingredient simple. The hardest part is cooking the bacon! Really!

We love this sugar-free bacon – Appleton Farms. It’s nice and thick and cooks up nicely.

It chops nicely too.

Mix the cheese and bacon. Yes, you can get your hands in there. I won’t even judge if you lick your fingers.

We love the silicone pan for these crisps. No need to spray and the chips pop out so easily. Easy cleanup too. We bought ours on Amazon.

Sprinkle it lightly in a muffin pan. Don’t make it too thick or it will be too chewy. You’re pretty much laying it out just short of a single layer of bacon and cheddar cheese in the bottom. And be cautious of the thickness of the cheese. This is a thicker shred and I think works best.

If you can see a whole or two in the finished product, you’ve done it right. And watch that they don’t get too brown – but not brown enough and they are too chewy. Yes, I am suggesting you make multiple batches to test!

Bacon and Cheese Crisps - Keto / Low Carb

Bacon and Cheese Crisps - Keto / Low Carb

Yield: 24
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 9 minutes
Total Time: 19 minutes


  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 7 strips of cooked bacon


  1. Chop the bacon in a food processor
  2. Mix the bacon and shredded cheese
  3. Sparingly drop small amounts of the mixture into a muffin pan.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-9 minutes.
  5. Let cool and then pop out.
  6. We store ours in the fridge, but you could possibly store in an airtight cookie tin if they cooked to a crisp.


We use a silicone muffin pan because it's easier to clean up and the crisps pop out so easily. Just set the silicone mold on a sheet pan to put in the oven.

We've found that the crisps cook quicker (6-7 min) in a metal pan, but some people have had issues with the crisps popping out. If you use a metal pan, you may want to spray the bottoms.
