Black Pepper and Parmesan Frico
Parmesan crisps (aka frico) have never been so easy to make! These crispy pieces of cheese are great topped on a soup or salad.
Servings 6 to 8
- 8 ounces shredded Parmesan cheese
- fresh black pepper to taste
Heat a small non-stick skillet on medium heat.
Sprinkle a thin layer of grated cheese in a circular pattern (a 2 inch circle or larger if desired) over the bottom of the pan. Cook over medium heat until the cheese has melted and formed a light crust, about 2 to 3 minutes. Carefully lift and turn the layer of cheese with a spatula. Cook until lightly golden on the 2nd side, about 30 seconds.
Remove the Frico from the pan and set it on a plate with a paper towel.
Sprinkle black pepper on the Frico.
You can make little cups by draping the Frico over a shot glass if desired.
Cool slightly before serving.
Continue with the remaining cheese.
