Parmesan crisps are easy to make and as addictive as chips.  They also make a nice topping for a salad or an egg-based brunch dish.  Serve them with soup or use them as the base for savoury appetizers.

For tastiest results use freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.

These crisps best eaten immediately but you can store them in an airtight container for a day or two.

Servings: 8


1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

Fresh ground pepper (optional)


Preheat the oven to 300 C.

Line a cookie tray with parchment.

Make small piles (about 1 tbsp) of the grated cheese a few inches apart. 

Spread the piles with your fingers to make them fairly even about 2 -inches in diameter.

Add fresh pepper (optional)

Bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until set and lightly brown.

Allow to cool and use a spatula to lift them from the parchment.
