I have made Parmesan crisps since I started a low carb diet back in 2008! In fact one of the first posts on this blog was Parmesan Crisps Five Different Ways. Plus I've also made “Everything” Parmesan Crisps with a delicious addition of poppy seeds, garlic powder, and sesame seeds! They're also a great replacement for croutons in my low carb Caesar salad – who needs bread?!??
When I was making another batch of crisps the other day I wanted to elevate them – and as I had some cooked bacon in the fridge it seemed like a fantastic addition. And then as I love low carb spicy food, adding some heat seemed like an obvious choice – but of course it is optional!
How to Make Spicy Bacon Parmesan Crisps
Cut a slice of cooked bacon into small crumbles. You could also use bacon bits – just make sure they're 100% bacon and not “bacon flavored bits”!
In a bowl, mix together the bacon with shredded Parmesan, onion powder, and chipotle powder. You could also use cayenne if you prefer.
Divide the mixture between 16 holes of a non-stick mini muffin pan.
Place under a preheated broiler until the cheese has melted – depending on how far away from the elements they are this can take 1-3 minutes.
Leave the crisps to cool in the muffin pan for 10 minutes for them to crisp up. You might want to leave them on a wire cooling rack for an extra 5 minutes if needed.
