Provolone crisps

provolone crisps

Guys, this is the easiest appetiser ever! It’s delicious and – what’s best – you get rid of most of the provolone fat.

All you have to do is:

1. Slice a piece of provolone as thinly as you can (keep the rind on);

2. Get your microwave tray out, line it with 2 sheets of paper towel and a piece of grease-proof paper;

3. Spread a few slices on the paper (do not over crowd it);

4. Turn the microwave on high for 1 min at first, then increase the time in 30 sec bursts until the slices get crisp and golden;

5. Repeat process changing papers as often as needed.

  1. I have to say they do look like crumpets but so delicious! I love provolone and I love the idea of making them in to crisps!

  3. Genius! I cook so many kinds of cheese this way–love how you can get rid of most of the fat using this method, and it tastes even better! Yours turned out so perfectly round and pretty Ericka!


  4. Oh my, what fun, Erika! This is such a fun and easy appetizer to make. I never thought to just microwave them, but it clearly works! Thanks for sharing this tip!


  5. Love this idea, Erika! I never would have thought the microwave could provide a golden exterior and crisp the cheese too. I must try this…and soon!


      • I’ve cooked bacon in the microwave many times, and duh…it didn’t even occur to me the cheese would respond similarly! I’m definitely giving this a go for our football gathering this weekend!
