Parmigiano Reggiano DOP, the "King of Cheeses," is front and center in this incredibly simple but incredibly tasty recipe. Taking just moments to prepare, these savory "snaps" make a creative addition to your antipasto platter, pairing alongside winter soup, or even just a tasty cooking snack in the kitchen. 

Parmigiano Reggiano Snaps
Recipe courtesy of Il Consorzio del Parmigiano Reggiano

Yield: 4 servings (about 20 snaps)

4 ounces of Parmigiano Reggiano DOP
1 ounce of plain flour
Ground white or black pepper

Finely grate the Parmigiano Reggiano DOP. Stir the cheese and the flour until well combined, then season with a pinch of pepper, to taste.

Heat a hot grill or skillet. Place rounded tablespoons of the Parmigiano Reggiano mixture, spaced apart, onto the pan. Flatten them down slightly.

Cook for one or two minutes, until melted and beginning to brown. Remove from the pan while still warm, and repeat with the other. If you are not eating the snaps immediately (but why not?!), allow them to cool, then store in an airtight tin until you are ready to serve (how can you wait?).

Buon appetito!
