Basil Parmesan Crisps
When trying to decide what spices to try to pair with parmesan crisp, I decided to try basil, as it only made sense to pair a cheese and spice often used in Italian cuisine together. Afraid just basil and parmesan would be boring, I added a little garlic and onion powder to the mix. The result was amazing! I am in love with these easy to make keto crackers, especially if some marinara sauce is available to dip them in!
To make these crackers I like to use grated parmesan from the grocery store. However not all grocery stores carry good fresh grated parmesan. If you can’t find already grated parmesan I recommend buying the blocks and using a parmesan cheese grater to grate your cheese. After you have the cheese grated and in a small mixing bowl, add your spices and mix everything until they are well incorporated. Spoon teaspoonfuls of the mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper leaving about a half inch between each spoonful to allow room for spreading.
Bake your crackers at 400° F for 7-9 minutes or until they have turned golden and the middles of the crackers are crisp. Pull them out and let them cool completely before removing from the pan.
When making these I just put them on a lightly greased baking sheet and found out just why using parchment paper is recommended. Though most of the crackers came off relatively easy, a few stuck to the pan and came off in small pieces. I of course had to try a broken one immediately, and was delighted with the outcome of these basil parmesan crisps. The sweet taste of basil, paired with the sharp flavor of parmesan and hints of garlic was absolutely delicious!
For those of you new to the Keto or Low Carb diet please keep in mind we are here to help you learn to bake and are not nutritionists. What works for me and my goals may not work for you and your goals. Cheese is high in fats and calories, and if your goal is to lose weight, you may not want to eat large amounts of cheesy snacks.
