Cook's Note

Decoration for Your Dinner
Also known as "frico," these lacy Italian cheese crisps are an easy-yet-impressive way to top soups, salads, or pasta. For a quick appetizer, serve them with dried fruit and nuts.


  1. Step 1

    Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium. Evenly sprinkle Parmesan to cover bottom of pan. Cook until cheese is melted and light brown, about 3 minutes; let cool slightly. Using a small spatula, loosen edge and transfer to a plate. Let cool completely, then break into pieces.
