What's Cooking?

Parmesan Crisps


We have some friends (who also happen to be our fellow church congregation members and neighbors) who are very gracious hosts.

They always host fabulous parties and one of their signature nibbles is the parmesan crisp; it is the perfect little bite of salty goodness.

And here is the awesome in these wonderful crispy morsels:  they only have one ingredient!

Partees' Party Parmesan Crisps


Shredded Parmesan Cheese (not the fluff you put on spaghetti)

Pre-heat your oven to 400F.
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
Put a Tbs. of cheese on paper and bake for 8 minutes.
THAT'S IT!!!!

*If you want to get a little fancier  you could sprinkle a scant bit of paprika over the cheese before baking.

To take this idea a little further...

Pary's Parmesan Party Pots (a.k.a. Cheesy Bowls)


Shredded Parmesan Cheese
Ramekins, cups, or gelatin molds
Non-stick cooking spray

Pre-heat your oven to 350F.
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
Put enough cheese down to cover about a 4" circle.  You'll probably don't want more than 4 on a sheet.
Bake for 8 minutes.
Flip the ramekins upside down and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Immediately take the crisp out of the oven and working quickly but gently, remove it from the paper and cover the bottom of the ramekins.
Once they have cooled and hardened, remove from the ramekins and you'll be able to fill the edible bowls with something yummy like pasta salad.

This is part of Full Plate Thursday.
