When you want a crispy, crunchy garnish for a highly-seasoned soup, salad, or stew, you don't want a bunch of competing flavors. These simple Parmesan crisps are perfect in that case—long, thin, crunchy croutons, flavored only with olive oil and real Parmigiano-Reggiano (real Parmesan) cheese. Make a lot…they are very addictive.
- 1 baguette loaf (the long skinny style works best)
- 1/4 cup olive oil (more or less as needed)
- 1 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (finely grated, more or less as needed)
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Pre heat oven to 350 F. Place the baguette on a cutting board and holding the knife at about a 45-degree angle, cut the bread into 1/4-inch slices. The more of an angle you turn the knife, the longer your Parmesan crisps will be. For shorter ones, use less than a 45-degree angle.
Arrange the slices on a baking sheet, and lightly brush both sides with olive oil. Bake for 12 minutes.
Remove and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.
Return to oven and bake for 5 minutes.
Remove, turn over each slice and sprinkle with more cheese.
Return to oven, and bake for another 10 minutes, or until the bread is crispy and golden brown. Let cool slightly before serving.
