I’m sure a lot of you have seen those bags everyone gets so excited about called Parmesan Cheese “Whisps” (pictured). Whether you can’t find them in your area, or you just don’t want to overpay for baked parmesan – I have good news! You can make them at home! I used to have these topped with black forrest ham, turkey, and pepper jack cheese every morning for breakfast (when I ate breakfast 😭). SO many uses for these things!
Now, you’ll see pictured that I am using the same whoopie pie pan I use for micro tacos, to make these crackers – however, I started to notice that the cheese is so dry that (while it’s PERFECT for making crackers/chips) it eventually starts affecting the non-stickiness of the pan. So I don’t do that anymore. 😝 I’ve since been making these on a silicone mat (yes, you can use parchment paper), and they came out JUST as good.
The best things are:
1) They’re a big cracker (unlike the whisps), so you don’t have to be confined to just dipping, or eating them plain – you can put whatever you want on top as you would with normal crackers, and
2) You can season them however you want. Pictured I used dried oregano, garlic and onion powder – but we also add red pepper flakes, etc., and make them hot.
