If there is one thing that you need to know about me, it’s that I love cheese. Havarti, Gruyère, Stilton – you name it, and I’ve probably enjoyed it. So imagine my excitement when I discovered Kitchen Table Bakers Aged Parmesan Crisps, which are wheat, sugar and gluten-free. They were so good, in fact, that their rapid obliteration became the stuff of office legends. Apparently, barreling your way through a package of crunchy, tangy parmesan crisps in under 10 minutes is an excellent means by which to impress your colleagues.
Kitchen Table Bakers specializes exclusively in cheese crisps, offering eight varieties of their signature Parmesan chip. Their Aged Parmesan Mini Crisps are perfect for parties and snacking. Even picky dairy-eaters are sure to enjoy these little morsels, with three pieces packing 20% of the recommended daily calcium requirement.
I tried three of the flavors offered by Kitchen Table Bakers: Jalapeno, Everything, and Aged Parmesan. The Jalapeno had some (very minor) kick that added a festive pizzazz perfect for salsa or ranch dip. Sesame seeds, poppy seeds and garlic compose the exuberant Everything Parmesan Crisps, which would pair nicely with cream cheese. I, however, enjoyed the elegant simplicity of the Aged Parmesan Crisps the most. The classic taste makes these cheesy roundels a perfect complement to salads, gluten-free pasta, or even – be still my heart – other cheese.
How do you feel about cheese as a part of the gluten-free diet? Do you have any other great crispy salad topping recommendations?
