Quick bites and cheesy delights

Before you go grab that bag of chips look in your fridge. What can you make? You want something fast, good, and of course easy. Well here you go.

This is for the dairy lover at heart. You don’t need to eat a lot of these. They are strong in flavor and very satisfying. Go ahead and grab yourself an apple and some grapes to eat with them. You will be glad that you left that Salt and Vinegar chip bag closed.

ingredients:

1.5 ounces of Parmesan, Asiago, or Romano cheese

What you will need:

1 sheet pan

parchment paper or a silicone sheet

a cheese grater

Turn your oven on to the broil setting. Turn the temp to high.

Take a sheet pan and line it with either a silicon sheet or parchment paper. Then grate your cheese into small circles on top.

I like to use a fine grater for this. This brings up another topic for me. Pre shredded cheese or fresh block. There are some things that we should not do. Buying pre shredded cheese is one of them. Buy yourself a nice grater and always buy a block. Pre shredded cheese is dry and flavorless. Take an extra few minutes and taste the freshness. You will thank me. Grate your cheese into small circle shapes on your sheet pan. Place it in the oven. You can even leave the door open and watch the goodness as it melts. Leave them in about 3 minutes. You will know they are done when the edges are a nice caramel brown color.

Let them cool for a minute, they are hot. If you want to get crafty you can get out a can and drape them over it to cool. They will set in a little shell shape. Yippee, pinterest here you come.

Next step is most important: EAT THEM!
