This is barely a recipe but crunchies are indispensable in our family. My Grandma makes crunchies, my mum makes crunchies and now I make crunchies. My kids gobble them up so quickly.

If you have a few slices of bread left over at the end of the day then transform them into crunchies. I like to buy a bag of bread and make a huge batch as they last for a good week. I guess they would last longer but they get eaten around here too quickly!

Preheat oven to 150 degrees C. Butter the slices of bread and spread a little vegemite over the top. Use a serrated bread knife to cut each slice into ‘sticks’ (Essie calls them ‘sticks’ and I think it is fitting).

On a lined baking tray place all the bread sticks side by side, nice and close. Then grate some cheese evenly over the top. Don’t go overboard on the cheese, just a nice scattering.

Bake for about 20 – 25 minutes or until dry, crisp and well crunchie. Cool on the tray and store in an airtight container.

My Grandma always stores them in an empty, clean Moccona coffee jar.
