If you’re looking for a super easy, tasty snack, these homemade Parmesan cheese crisps are it.
If you’ve never had Parmesan crisps, you’re missing out. They’re popular right now, and for good reason. Crunchy, nutty, cheese that is like a chip, but low in carbs. They’re delicious in salads, as toppings for soup, or as crunchy addition to a cheese plate.

You can buy them pre-made, but they are super expensive when compared to what you can make yourself. And, the best part? They are ridiculously good, and require one ingredient. What other recipe requires one ingredient?
Now, you can add some seasoning if you like here, which I highly recommend. You can add literally any seasoning you like, so be creative. I used an everything bagel seasoning on half,  and Hot Roasted Garlic, which is a combination of mellow roasted garlic and pepper flakes on the other half. But if you have a favorite blend, or just want to add some Italian seasoning to shake things up, you can. They are super good plain though.

I’ve made these lots of times, and the biggest tip I can give you is to try to use the same amount of cheese in each crisp. A measuring spoon works well for this, I used a packed full teaspoon of cheese in each one, and they came out great. You can make them bigger if you want, just make them the same size. If they are even a little different, some will burn, while others will not get cooked nearly enough. And once they start to brown, it doesn’t take long to go from a nice flavorful golden brown to burnt. And no one likes that.
I love these because you can make them up for a party, and no one can ever believe that you made them yourself. Make a few, because they will disappear fast!
