Thursday night we were opening a bottle of champagne and cutting up some gouda and we realized we did not have any type of cracker. I remembered that I had this Giada De Laurentiis recipe for Parmesan, Basil Lemon Wafers.
This 3 ingredient recipe could not get any easier. I was a little unsure how these would turn out and even more unsure if this would be something that Hubby would like. But they were fantastic! For three ingredients, they tasted very rich and very much like an indulgence. The lemon is just enough to add a bit of brightness to these so that they aren't too heavy.
This is a great low carb or gluten free alternative to crackers.
Parmesan Basil Lemon Wafers (Frico)
1 cup shredded Parmesan
2 tablespoons shredded basil leaves
1/2 tablespoon grated lemon zest
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Transfer a heaping tablespoon of Parmesan mixture onto a silicone or parchment-lined baking sheet and lightly pat down. A silicone baking sheet is highly recommended for this recipe. Repeat with the remaining cheese mixture, spacing the spoonfuls about 1/2-inch apart.
Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden and crisp. Cool and use a flat spatula to transfer from lined baking sheet.
