  • spread a small scoop of parmesan in a circle on baking paper (you can use a small mould for shaping) - see photo, we used a 5 cm (2 inch) mould 
  • gently even out the parmesan to allow for an even cook
  • sprinkle with salt flakes
  • bake on middle shelf for 6-8 minutes till crisps are a light golden colour (watch them like a hawk)
  • remove from oven and leave on the baking tray for 5 minutes
  • remove from tray and serve
  • parmesan crisps keep for 10 days in an airtight container

  • you can replace the chives with thyme, basil or oregano
  • if using fine white salt, sprinkle sparingly
  • by using the same amount of parmesan mix eg. 1 level tablespoon and spreading the mixture over the same size area eg. circles drawn on the back side of your baking paper or using a mould, the crisps will all cook evenly and at the same time
  • parmesan crisps keep for a week in an air tight container
