If you’re looking for a healthy snack, try these quick and easy Parmesan Crisps. They may not be as nutritious as carrot sticks, but they have far fewer calories than chips.
1/2 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese (if using a block of cheese, shred on the big holes of the box grater)
1/4 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 400F/205C.
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Add as much or as little black pepper as you like.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking sheet.
Pour a tablespoon of the Parmesan mixture onto the lined baking sheet.
Gently pat the cheese down and lightly spread out to approximately 3″ in diameter.
Continue doing this with the remaining cheese. Leave 1/2″ spacing between each round.
Bake for 5-8 minutes. Edges should be lightly browned. Do not cook until crisps are browned all over as this can cause the cheese to be bitter.
Remove from oven and slide parchment or silicon sheet off of hot pan to cool.
