How many recipes can you make with just one ingredient? Can this even qualify as a recipe? Have you ever tried anything like these Parmesan Crisps? Should I write this entire post in question form?
These Parmesan Crisps are about to become your new best friend. They are so fast to make that you have no choice but to stand right in front of the oven while they bake because there is no time to walk away and come back before they are finished and ready to pull out. I mean, you slide these into the oven, you take a moment to breathe, then you open the oven and your snack is ready to eat.
For me, the most difficult part of making these Parmesan Crisps is getting out a cookie sheet while preventing my muffin tins to clatter down out of the cabinet at the same time. Someone should really organize that cabinet before someone gets hurt.
Once the cookie sheet has been successfully acquired, I find it best to lay down a silicone baking mat. At the very least, spread parchment paper on your cookie sheet so these crisps won’t stick to the pan. Then scoop about one tablespoon of cheese into little piles on the pan, leaving about one inch of space in between each pile like so:
Slide the cookie sheet into a hot oven for 3-5 minutes so the cheese can melt and brown and tada! You have Parmesan Crisps.
You can eat these right off the pan, but we like them best dipped in salsa.
Even better news: This idea works with any cheese you like. Colby jack is a winner. Cheddar. Pepper Jack. This is all too much fun.
- 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
- Line a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
- Scoop about one Tablespoon of cheese onto the pan, leaving about one inch of space in between each pile of cheese.
- Bake for 3-5 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Watch to be sure they don't over-bake!
I think the best thing about this Parmesan Crisps idea is that you can make them very quickly when your family needs a snack. This is a huge win at our house as we almost always have cheese on hand.
As for my cookie sheet and muffin tin cabinet, someone really should do something about organizing it before someone gets hurt.

We love everything cheese in our family. We’ve cooked cheddar and Colby cheese before but we will definitely be trying Parmesan. Thanks for the recipe!
My mom used to make these back in the day, and this just reminded me that I should totally make some asap! She used a mix of cheddar and parmesan with a sprinkle of thyme. They were a lifesaver when we did the Atkins diet about twenty years ago : )

We were invited to dinner at a friend’s house, and she made these to top our salads. Sooo delicious!!
IF you have any leftover, grind them & use them like breadcrumbs. These take my meatloaf & meatballs up a notch without using carbs!!!
