Ingredients

  • 8 ounces shredded Parmesan cheese
  • fresh black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • 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.
