PARMESAN CRISPS

Parmesan crisps add a nice touch to salads and other side dishes.  They are really easy to make.  Essentially it is circles of grated cheese that is baked. Instead of using parmesan cheese, you can use asiago cheese or other cheeses.  I used asiago cheese to make these crisps.   I have provided the directions to make the crisps in the following photos.  I left these crisps remain flat like crackers but you can also wrap them against a rolling pin when you take them out of the oven if you want them to be curled.

Shred about 1/3 cup of cheese. 

On a baking sheet, arrange shredded cheese into 2 inch round mounds on parchment paper.   Bake at  350 degrees for five minutes until golden brown. 

Out of the oven and cooling. You can see the oil from the cheese on the parchment paper. 

The crisps are a great addition to a salad.
