Parmesan Crisps with Caviar and Crème Fraîche

Festive enough for New Year’s Eve, this pretty appetizer only takes about 5 minutes to make. Bacon infused caviar adds a unique smokiness that will intrigue your guests and is fairly inexpensive, but any decent quality caviar will do. The one-ingredient parmesan crisps are a savory, no-carb alternative to blini.

  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 ounce caviar
  • ¼ cup creme fraiche


  • Preheat the broiler to 480-500 degrees.
  • Line a half baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Drop 1-to-2 tablespoons of the shredded Parmesan onto the baking sheets into tiny mounds. Bake 5 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely and loosen with a spatula. Top each parmesan round with a dollop of creme frauche and caviar. Serve immediately.
