Parmesan crisps

READY IN: 11mins
Recipe by Claire de Luna

Grate some cheese and after three minutes in the oven, you have a beautiful appetizer for a glass of wine. The cheese melts into a lacy circle, and the fresh chives add color and flavor. Try other fresh herbs or freshly ground pepper for variety. I found this in the Chicago Sun-Times Food Section and was impressed with how well these turn out!

i love these! I make them with swiss sometimes also... really great for low-carb diets! instead of chives, I've added a little bbq seasoning and they taste like a bbq chip!
