What’s Up, Hungry People

Yesterday, we witnessed the creation of a delicious Death Star. The journey to a galaxy far, far away continues with TIE Fighter Chips!

The TIE fighters’ wings are made from whole wheat Triscuits. There seemed to be several octagon-shaped options in the cracker aisle, so really, whatever you prefer will work.

Triangle-shaped crackers can also be used to represent the more modern Imperial designs, like the ship flown by Kylo Ren.

The centers of the ships can be any sort of block cheese you like. I used pepper jack and sharp cheddar, cutting the cheese blocks into smaller cubes. If you can find pre-cut cheese cubes, those work just as well too.

So far, we’ve had a very successful Star Wars-themed week, and there are even more Star Wars recipes on the horizon, so stay tuned!

Here’s What You Need

  • Crackers (triangle, hexagon, or octagon shapes): Wings of the TIE Fighter, providing structure and crunch.
  • Sharp cheddar cheese: Offers a robust, tangy flavor and pairs well with crackers.
  • Pepper jack cheese: Adds a spicy kick to balance the sharpness of cheddar.
  • Cream cheese (room temperature): Acts as glue to hold the cheese and crackers together.

Tips for Perfect TIE Fighter Chips

  • Preventing soggy crackers: Chill the assembled TIE Fighters for 10 minutes before serving to keep the crackers crisp.
  • Cheese consistency: Make sure the cheese cubes are uniform in size for a balanced look and even flavor distribution.
  • Cream cheese application: Use just a tiny bit of cream cheese to avoid overwhelming the other flavors and to ensure the crackers stick together.
  • Creative cracker shapes: Feel free to mix and match cracker shapes to create a variety of TIE Fighter designs, referencing different ships from the Star Wars universe.
  • Serving suggestions: Serve immediately after chilling, or keep refrigerated until ready to eat for the best texture and flavor.

Prepping the Cheese

Cut the sharp cheddar and pepper jack cheese blocks into 1×1″ cubes. If you found pre-cut cubes, you’re ahead of the game!

Assembling the TIE Fighters

  • Spread a tiny bit of cream cheese onto one side of a cracker. This is your glue.
  • Press a cheese cube gently onto the cream cheese.
  • Repeat with a second cracker on the opposite side of the cheese cube, creating a sandwich.

Chilling and Serving

  • Chill the assembled TIE Fighters in the fridge for about 10 minutes. This helps keep the crackers nice and crisp.
  • Serve right away to avoid any sogginess. Enjoy your galactic snacks, and may the Force be with you!
