Recipe by Chef John
"These are a bit different in concept than your average tossed salad crouton. In this case I wanted something crispy and crunchy, with a nice nuttiness from caramelized cheese, but that's about all."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

French baguette, cut into diagonal 1/2 inch slices
finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
These are really crispy! I wish I had watched the video before I made them - the recipe calls for the bread to be sliced 1/2" thick - in the video Chef John says 1/4" thick. Does it really make a difference? I think so, these are so crisp that the thick bread is difficult to bite through. Thinner slices of bread would definitely work better.
These are excellent & SO simple! Of course, I knew I'd love them - they're from Chef John! Had them with "beans n' greens" the other night and am making them again tonight to have with a plain salad (these will be the star!!) GENIUS putting the cheese on both sides...Thanks again, Chef!!
Awesome with beans and greens!
I printed 10 recipes for various garlic-type breads to serve with our Italian dinner last night. My husband picked this one and we both loved how wonderful these Parma Crisps were. We look forward to making these again and again. I did take Baking Nana's recommendation to slice them to 1/4" thickness instead of 1/2" and that was a good call.
I add Italian herbs in with the olive oil and then top with a bit of coarsely ground sea salt and pepper. Magnificent!

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
