Want keto low carb cheese chips that take only a few minutes to make? You can bake up a batch of easy Parmesan crisps in less than ten minutes!
Would you believe I’ve never made keto cheese chips before? Well, it’s true.
Even though I’ve been a low carb eater for years, I have never baked cheese into crispy snacks before. Surprising, huh?
One of the things I really love to snack on are Parmesan cheese crisps. I’ve received them a few times in my Keto Krate. I also pick them up on occasion at a local grocery store.
Well, I was really craving something crunchy last weekend. So, I decided to try and bake some easy Parmesan crisps
If you’re ever craving some quick low carb snacks, check out some of my past posts.
I always have a jar of shredded Parmesan cheese in the fridge. It’s not something that you’d normally consider a snack food.
But, shredded cheese turns into tasty treat when baked into low carb chips.
And the best part is that it won’t take long to make these tasty keto snacks. You just need to melt the cheese together so they form crispy chips.
I’ve seen some people just place circles of shredded cheese on a plate and microwave until the cheese is brown and crispy. However, I like to use a baking pan in the oven.These Parmesan crisps are so easy to make that I wasn’t going to post the recipe.
But, then I thought there might be others out there who still haven’t tried them. So, if that’s you, go ahead and give these cheesy chips a try!
It’s so quick to make these ridiculously easy Parmesan chips.
You just have to place 1 tablespoon mounds of the shredded cheese onto a prepared baking pan and bake until brown and crisp.
As mentioned earlier, it can be done in the microwave as well. But I find that the chips don’t cook as well as they do in the oven.
I’ve seen some people bake them at an oven temperature as low as 300°F. I wanted them to crisp up fast so I baked them at 400°F.
I don’t think there’s really a set temperature you need to bake the Parmesan crisps at. So, you should experiment a little and see what does best for you.
You can certainly make these Parmesan chips in a skillet as well. It might even be faster than an oven because of the there’s no preheating needed.
It would be best to use a non-stick pan so the cheese is easy to remove. I use a silicone baking mat when I bake them in the oven for that reason.
The next time you have a craving for something crunchy, why not bake up a batch of easy Parmesan cheese crisps?
You’ll be so happy you did! Just be sure to keep shredded Parmesan on hand.
