I tried a few different kinds of grating cheeses, Parmesan, Romano and Asiago, and while they taste a little different, they all make really great little snacks. Mixing them tastes really good, too.
For about 20 small Frico, pre-heat the oven to 375 and use:
- 2 c grated Parmesan, Romano, or Asiago
- 1/4 tsp freshly grated black pepper
- 1/2 to 3/4 tsp dried oregano
For every cup of grated cheese, use 1/8 tsp black pepper and 1/4 tsp oregano.
Use a tablespoon to put little mounds of the cheese and spices on the baking sheet. Press down on the mounds to make them even and space them out a little. Pop them in the pre-heated 375 degree oven and set a timer for 5 minutes. Check to see if they're evenly golden brown, and if they're not, put them back in for another minute. Repeat the checking. If there's a little white left, those spots will be more chewy than crispy, but I kinda like that. The one on the right had a little chewy area. Yum.
