  • 1/2 - 1 1/2 cup parmesan cheese shredded (2-4 ounces)
  • 1 teaspoon seasonings or spices optional


In the Skillet

  • Place a skillet over medium high heat.
  • Sprinkle in 1/2 cup of shredded cheese to coat the bottom of the pan (10 inch). Or sprinkle cheese into 4-5 round cracker shapes. If you are using spices or seasoning, sprinkle it on now.
  • Cook the cheese until the whole thing is a light, golden brown around 4-5 minutes (if you watch it, it starts popping almost like popcorn).
  • Remove the whole sheet or rounds with a spatula and place on a paper plate/papertowels.
  • Let cheese harden completely then serve it up.

In the Oven

  • Preheat the oven to 400° F. Place parchment paper or silicone baking mat onto a baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle 1 - 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese in a thin layer (or tablespoon sized cracker rounds) onto baking sheet. If you are using spices or seasoning, sprinkle it on now.
  • Bake for 6-8 minutes (watching closely) until the edges start to brown.
  • Allow to cool and harden before removing from the parchment.


  • Any low-moisture, hard cheese will work in this recipe.
  • If you use a cheese like cheddar, it may need to cook a little longer than the parmesan.
  • Cheese crisps will last 5-6 days at room temperature in an air tight container.
