Awesome Cheese Crisps for Wine

Andy Anderson !


I love these little bites of salty goodness. You can choose a lot of different cheeses; however, since I use Parmigiano-Reggiano, they serve as a perfect compliment to a nice evening by the fire with a bottle of wine, and good friends.

This is not a new recipe... People have been making these for a lot of years. The main difference is the cheese you choose to use, and the spices you add.

I like mine a bit on the spicy side.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

7Chef's Tip: When they come out of the oven, they should still be slightly flexible. If they are completely dry, then you baked them too long.

10Chef's Note: Watch these crisps very carefully... when they begin to turn golden (not brown), take them out of the oven. I don't care if it's 5 minutes or 3 days. If you overcook them they will taste bitter... Golden NOT brown is the way to go.
