These parmesan cheese crisps are about to game-change your Netflix binge session or your next hike!
Parmesan – Save yourself some time and buy the pre-shredded or grated version of this hard, salty cheese.
Seasoning – This is totally optional, in fact, sometimes I prefer my parmesans crisps without any seasoning!
My preferred seasoning is Everything But the Bagel from Trader Joes (you can buy it online but it’s WAY cheaper in the store!).
Or, if you’d rather craft a seasoning blend yourself, can use a combo of herbs and spices — garlic powder, onion powder, sesame seeds, Italian seasoning are a few tasty options that come to mind!
Tools To Make
This easy and fast parmesan crisps recipe prides itself on being low maintenance:
- Baking sheet – a rimmed sheet, or jelly roll pan, will help keep your parchment in place. A cookie sheet will work fine in a pinch!
- Parchment paper – this silicone-coated paper is a miracle worker for baking. Use it to line your baking sheet, and it’ll create a stick-free surface that makes it easy-peasy to slide off your new crunchy, crisps.
This parmesan crisps recipe is made of cheese, after all, so they do best in an airtight container in the fridge to keep them from getting soft. This also may help you not eat all of them in one sitting, with them sitting on the counter looking all tempting and such.
Luckily, they’re quick and easy, so you can always make more!
Can You Freeze Them?
YUP. Again, this parmesan crisps recipe is effortless. You can totally store them in the freezer in an airtight container – just keep in mind this will take down their crunchiness. Just thaw on the counter or in the fridge when you’re ready for a snack!

Are These Chips Low Carb?
Can I Add Low Carb Flour to These?
You can definitely add almond or coconut flour to these for a more cracker-like texture, although to get the ratios just right for an actually crispy cracker, check out my recipes for each of these flour-based crackers instead: almond flour crackers and coconut flour crackers.
Can I Turn This Recipe Into Tortilla Chips?
This parmesan crisps recipe would work amazing for scooping up soft dips like hummus, soft cheese or salsa! You can form the cheese into triangle shapes, or bake it in a solid flat surface and cut the triangle shapes using a pizza cutter as the cheese cools.

Can I Add Veggies To This Recipe?
This perfectly simple parmesan crisps recipe get their crunch from the easy way that cheese gets crunchy. Adding veggies is going to make this easy recipe complicated quick. But there are a lot of options for veggie crisps!
- 1 Cup Parmesan Cheese shredded or grated
- Everything but the Bagel Seasoning (optional)
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Line baking sheet with a cut sheet of parchment paper (or Silpats).
- Form flat mounds of parmesan cheese on the prepared baking sheet.
- Sprinkle the top with seasoning (if desired!)
- Bake time will vary with how large your crisps are. Mine were 3-4" round, and I baked them for 10 minutes.
- Allow crisps to slightly harden/cool on the baking sheet before moving.
