A blend of Parmigiano Reggiano, bacon and fresh basil are melted to form an elegant appetizer--great with a glass of wine.

  • Servings: 12 crisps


2 Pieces Extra Lean Bacon
1 cup Shredded Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese
1 Tbsp Chopped Basil Leaves
¼ tsp Salt


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Place bacon on paper towels, on a microwavable plate, and cook until crisp. Remove from microwave, set on paper towels, pat dry, then finely chop. Using a small mixing bowl, stir all ingredients together until well blended. Drop by heaping tablespoon on parchment paper 1 inch apart. Bake 3 minutes or until golden and crisp. Let cheese stand until cool and crisp, about 1 minute. Using a spatula, carefully lift each round off baking sheet.
