Holiday Cheese Crisps

Tis the season for more appetizers falalala............
The holidays are bustling with parties. And what is always at a good party?
Booze!  Oh wait, appetizers!
I am not short on appetizer recipes but, am always intrigued by new ones.
I love watching YouTube videos and have for as long as it's been around.
I even used to make them!  Don't waste your time looking for them they are long gone & deleted. LOL!
Ok so there is this fabulous girl on YouTube that I recently started watching, she does a variety of videos, home decor, fashion, diy's, food, make-up, hair. Just about everything.
She is so to darn cute & talented!
There is a video she did on holiday entertaining and this appetizer was on there.
It is a piece of cake to make and I'm sure you can adjust it to your liking also.
Say your not a cheddar fan (you might want to see a doctor about that) use a shredded swiss, or whatever you crave.
Feel like something a little garlicky?  Sprinkle on a little garlic salt.  Spicy, a little chilli flakes.
Play around with it.
What I'm sharing with you today is pretty basic.
I grew herbs in the garden this summer and boy did they grow! I froze some, dried some and replanted some in the house.
I love having them on hand and got to use them in this easy bite.

Here is what you need:
Shredded cheese, I used cheddar
Shredded parmesan cheese
*sesame seeds (optional)
(like I said try a different cheese, spice, seasoning)

How to make them:
Get that oven warmed up!  Preheat to 350.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
If you can shred your own cheese do so, it tastes better and melts better.
Sprinkle the first cheese evenly over the parchment paper
Now sprinkle your parmesan cheese over that
Next your parsley, sesame seeds or whatever seasonings you choose to use.
Make sure the cheese is spread pretty evenly and that there are small pocket openings where you can still see some parchment paper, that helps to keep it crispier.

Bake for approximately 11 minutes.
Keep an eye on it, watch for the outer edges to start crisping.

Remove and let cool.
The next part is kinda fun, start breaking it apart.  Making different shapes.

This Christmas I will be hosting for my family and it's an appetizer Christmas!  Imagine that :)
I will be making a huge crudite table, these will go great in several glass tumblers on that table!
Can't wait!  Hope you enjoy & have happy holidays & a Merry Christmas!
