Garlic Rosemary Cheese Crisps

These may be my new favorite wine o’clock snack. For serious. Can anything make you feel more adult and grown up than a glass of crisp delicious wine and a few homemade nibbles to go with it?

I found this recipe for Cheese Herb Crisps on Sargento’s website and immediately knew I’d be making it just because. No special occasion, party or get-together. Just simply because when it comes to seven p.m. around here, I need a glass of Riesling and a few bites to hold me over until the mister walks through the door.

These crisps fit the bill perfectly. Originally I was going to make them exactly as Sargento does – with oregano, basil, and sun-dried tomatoes. I mean, who doesn’t love a sun-dried tomato?

But as I went to make the dough, I looked out onto the deck and noticed just how happy my rosemary plant seemed. It’s one of the few plants that refuses to die or wilt on me, despite my best efforts. I’m quite thankful for that, because rosemary is probably my favorite herb. I use it constantly on chicken and pasta, even shortbread.

Rosemary is a natural partner to that other kitchen darling; garlic. These crisps almost take on a Pita Chip persona (oh my – just ask Casey about my addiction to those!) with the addition of garlic salt and black pepper to the discs of dough just before they bake.

The crisp golden texture belies the nutty flavor of the dough brought through by the baked Parmesan. There’s just a little creaminess too, from the mozzarella.

Like I said at the start – exactly the sort of nibble you want to nosh during cocktail hour.

What’s your favorite snack to have with an adult beverage?

      It’s one of my favorites, Kathryn. Though someone just suggested adding some chili pepper, and now that’s all I can think about!

    I need to make my own crackers! Love this!

    ps I work with 2 people who have British husbands, and so when you said ‘crisps’ I automatically knew you meant to say chips ;)

      Hah! Normally you’d be right. I say crisps all the time now when talking about chips – but in this case I used the word crisps because that’s what Sargento calls them :)

    These sound wonderful! I’m a big fan of wine and nibbles so this would be perfect for me to make in the very near future ;)

    I love rosemary too–my plant is still a wee baby, so I’m trying to be careful with how much I cut off for cooking. But these sound like the perfect use for it. Because cheese! Cheese is the best! Especially crispy cheese.

      Kiersten, I could NOT agree more. Crispy parmesan cheese.. it’s like the best thing ever. My other favorite use for rosemary is the Union Square Bar Nuts I have posted. We make those quite often. They go hand in hand with these crisps. :)

    I’ve never made my own chips before and now I definitely have to…I especially love that you used rosemary because that’s my favorite herb, too!
