2 ingredient parmesan crisps

There’s nothing like a day without any green food item whatsoever to make you crave vegetables.

And, there’s nothing like a huge salad to quench that craving.

Salad was a given for lunch yesterday but, I wanted something to make it interesting too. Every time I make a salad I need at least one component I’m excited about. One thing that makes me look forward to each bite that includes that ingredient. Goat cheese usually fits the bill but this was a fun and different take on the cheese component to a salad.

2 ingredients and 5 minutes. That’s all you need.

use 1

Popped into a 400 degree oven, they come out bubbly but cool to a “crisp-like” consistency in a matter of minutes.

use 2

Deliciously salty, rosemary infused parmesan crisps.

use 4

These are delicious in a salad but I’m pretty sure equally as good in a pasta dish or even a soup.

I kind of wish I had made more.

use 5

With a total prep + cook time of 7 minutes max though, I’m pretty sure I can afford the time to make them again.

You should too.


Rosemary Parmesan Crisps

Yields 4 crisps (1 serving)

  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced rosemary


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat. Mix cheese & rosemary together in small bowl and place in 4 equal piles on baking sheet. Bake in oven for 3-5 minutes until cheese is fully melted. Remove from oven, it might still look bubbly. Let cool for a minute to crisp up and then remove with metal spatula and serve.

    I love making these. They always taste great with a bowl of chili too. Makes everything seem so gourmet.

    Oh…I just posted these last week – but without the rosemary….sounds like a great spin. I just put a bunch of fresh cracked black pepper in mine – so good! xoxo from Trinidad

    Yum that sounds delish! My fave add-in for salads is feta or goat cheese ;)

  12. 13

    Yum! I’ve made just cheese crisps before, but have never thought of add herbs. What a great idea… and they look delicious. Happy salad!!! :o)

    What a unique and delicious addition to a salad (or on its own:)) Sounds fairly easy to make too – I like that:)

    I saw Alton Brown make something similar once and I totally forgot to make them! I LOVE parmesan cheese and rosemary is my favorite herb, so these would be awesome. I’ve been putting feta in all my salads lately- it definitely takes them from good to great :)


  1. [...] it’s also tastes incredibly fresh. Which you should of course counteract with a nice salty parmesan crisp.While I didn’t have any on hand, a “whole grain baguette” wouldn’t be a bad side option [...]
