Parmesan Crisps

You will not believe how easy these crisps are to make and you can see how attractive they are! :) From now on, this is going to be a staple appetizer whenever I entertain. The great thing also, is that they can be served in a basket made from the same ingredient!

This is my entry to Meeta's Birthday Party Bang!

Recipe - Parmesan Crisps


  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • A few grinds of black pepper

  • A large baking sheet
  • Parchment paper or a silpat (silicone baking mat) if you have one
  • A small bowl turned upside down to work as a mold

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree
  2. Mix cheese and black pepper
To make basket:

  1. Take 1/2 cup of mixture and spread it in a thin circle
  2. Bake it for 5 - 7 mins
  3. Remove round disk and drape over the bottom of the bowl, gently pressing against the sides of the bowl
  4. Leave to cool and harden
To make crisps:

  1. Spoon 1/2 tbsp of cheese onto baking sheet 1-inch apart
  2. Flatten the top of the cheese a little with the back of your spoon
  3. Bake in oven for 3 - 5 mins
  4. Remove from oven and let cool
  5. Place in Parmesan basket, garnish with chives and serve

  • You can vary the size of the crisps to suit your needs for example to 1 tbsp or 1 tsp.
  • You do not have to make a molded basket to serve the crisps, they can be served using a plate, bowl or platter
  • Finely snipped chives can be added to the cheese mixture and be baked right into the crisp
