Abstract

See full text

An array of wells formed in a flexible mold is filled to a uniform depth with cheese by positioning an insert, including a funnel array established by a plurality of spaced funnel members, upon the mold such that each funnel member is in alignment with, freely received within, and supported upon a bottom wall of a respective well. Thereafter, cheese is provided on the insert to fill each funnel member. Next, the insert is removed, causing the cheese within the funnel members to partially and uniformly fill the wells. The cheese is then cooked in the mold, with the cheese being retained below open tops of the wells. Grease developed during the cooking process forms a layer upon the cheese within each well and, during a subsequent cooling process, the grease is drawn back into the produced cheese crisps. Finally, the crisps are removed by flexing the mold.
