White Cheddar Cucumber Chips made at home in your dehydrator! The perfect healthier chip!
It's obvious and it's true.
And if you've been around long enough you know I'm a chip fiend.
I've got to get my crunchy fix at least once a week or I will go mad, or at least dive my hand into an unhealthier option to get what I desire.
It's all about feeding that need in a healthier way for me.
Finding substitutions that make me content and happy and not looking for an alternative.
Zucchini chips and cucumber chips work for me.
I'm on a chip run lately.
I mean why settle on boring zucchini chips without flavor right?
I need flavor and so do you!
I've brought you Salt & Vinegar Zucchini Chips and Homemade Ranch Zucchini Chips. But one day I had no zucchini and forgot to buy some but I did have some awesome looking English Cucumbers. So that is when I made the delicious Sour Cream & Onion Cucumber Chips!
Have you noticed I'm also a cheese lover?
So many of my recipes include cheese of some short.
My family loves cheese in everything as well.
Guess the kids take more after me than the hubby!
While these have more calories than the predecessors, I believe they are worth it!
Enjoy and indulge without the guilt!
OH! I'm looking for a new flavor, got any ideas??

- I have a very basic dehydrator that does not even have temperature settings. It's by the brand Ronco.
Homemade White Cheddar Cucumber Chips
- 6 cups sliced cucumber
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ cup grated white cheddar cheese I used Cabot
- Toss the sliced cucumber with the olive oil and set aside.
- Whisk the seasonings together in a small bowl.
- Lay the cucumber slices on the shelves of the dehydrator. Make sure they are coated well with oil.
- Sprinkle the seasonings on all the slices.
- Sprinkle the grated cheese over the slices.
- Allow to dehydrate for 8-10 hours.
Hello, I have several dehydrators that I pick up for almost nothing at yard sales and the goodwill store. The last one I got was brand new from a yard sale still in the box for 10 dollars. It is a DEHYDRO brand. Also, I love this idea. Cucumbers, who would have thought? Now I think ranch dressing would be a great flavor! You can buy the dried packets at the store and use olive oil for coating, then shake the dressing powders onto the chips before dehydrating them. I'm just waiting for my garden to produce some nice cukes so I can experiment. I love cheese, but I would love to try some without cheese to save on calories and cholesterol. Thanks for the great site and the inspiring recipes!
Try Unexpected Cheddar from Trader Joes. It's a combo of cheddar and parmesan. So good!
Sugar free mom......have you ever tried bbq flavoring on the zucchini slices???...im going to try some of these this summer......i want the crunch factor ...i think
No but that's a great idea!
If I don't have a dehydrator, can I just bake it or other alternative ??
I haven't tried it in the oven but maybe 225 F for a few hours until crisp.
Chips are my favorite salty thing in the world. I totally need to eat less of them and this alternative is great!
I have 2 giant English cucumbers in my fridge right now that needs to be used. I need to make myself some chips! Looks sooooooooo good!
I've got to get another dehydrator. I can't remember what I did with mine. But these chips look incredible and I can't wait to try them! I love chips too!

Huh. I never would have thought to combine those flavors, but it sounds delicious!

I've wanted a dehydrator for a long time. I think I'm now convinced to just go on out and buy one!
kellie @ The Suburban Soapbox
Never in a million years would I have thought to make chips out of cucumbers! So brilliant, I can't wait to try them!
Ashley @ Wishes & Dishes
I"m a chip fiend, as well! Can't wait to try these out. So creative!

Crunchy foods like chips are my weakness. These look amazing. I love that you added cheddar to them since I am a total cheddar addict!
Colleen (Souffle Bombay)
Whoa, I have never come across a cucumber chip before! Bet my kids would be all over these pretties!
I'm a chip fiend too, and get so excited each time I see one of your new chip recipes. This makes me want to run out to buy a dehydrator!
I just made the cucumber chips, they are in oven. So we’ll see how they come out from oven in 4 hours.
