2 Ingredient Parmesan Crisps

These rosemary infused parmesan crisps are just 2 ingredients and ready in 5 minutes. They make the perfect crunchy topping to salads and soups.

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.

2 Ingredient Parmesan Crisps

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 these parmesan crisps were a fun and different take on the cheese component to a salad.

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

Parmesan Crisps

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

Kind of like the cheese version of an Italian pizelle cookie!

2 Ingredient Parmesan Crisps with Rosemary

Deliciously salty, rosemary infused parmesan crisps.

Rosemary Parmesan Crisps

These are delicious in a salad but I’m pretty sure equally as good in a pasta dish or even a soup. I absolutely love them served with creamy roasted tomato soup.

Kinda wishing I had made more!

2 Ingredient Rosemary Parmesan Crisps

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.

Creamy tomato soup, Panera style

[...] 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 [...]

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 :)
