You’re going to love this recipe.

And the best part? There’s only one ingredient – one you probably always have on hand.

Parmesan tuiles are pretty, easy and delicious. And I guarantee that they will become a staple in your kitchen, whether you make them for a quick happy hour accompaniment, cute salad garnish or savory mid-afternoon snack.

I shouldn’t even call this a “recipe” because there is nothing to it – no measuring, no special technique. Simply grate a wedge of Parmesan, pile into circles on a baking sheet and bake.

Feeling fancy? While the tuiles are still warm, drape them over a rolling pin to create a curved shape.

Feeling daring? Mix in some chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley.

Feeling neurotic? Use a biscuit or cookie cutter to create perfect circles.

Happy Friday – 5:00 will be here soon!

Parmesan Tuiles

Preheat oven to 400.

Grate 1-2 cups of Parmesan cheese, preferably on a very sharp grater (such as a Microplane). Place cheese, in mounds, on a parchment or Silpat-lined baking sheet. Pat lightly to create circles from 2-4″ in diameter (the tuiles I made here were about 3″ across).

Bake for 5-7 minutes, watching carefully, till golden. Remove from oven and let sit for 1 minute to firm up slightly. Carefully transfer with a spatula to a wire rack to cool completely. Or, drape tuiles over a rolling pin to create a curved shape. When set, transfer to rack to continue cooling.

Can be made up to 3 days in advance – store in an airtight container.
