Part cracker, part chip — and wholly addictive — these crispy, crunchy cheese wisps are oh so delicious and deceptively easy to make!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup firmly packed freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Instructions

  • HEAT a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Divide cheese into 4 portions (2 tbsp packed). Mound portions in pan, spaced 3 in. apart. Using the back of a measuring spoon, spread each mound out until about 2 in. wide.

  • COOK until cheese turns golden and becomes bubbly in the centre, 2 to 3 min. Remove pan from heat and let stand for 2 min. Remove crisps with a plastic spatula and cool completely on a paper towel.
