- 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds
- 2 teaspoons minced dried garlic
- 2 teaspoons minced dried onion
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpats.
- In a medium bowl, stir together all of the ingredients until well combined.
- Spoon heaping tablespoons of the mixture onto the baking sheets, spreading the mounds at least 2 inches apart and slightly flattening them.
- Bake the crisps for 8 to 10 minutes until they are golden brown. Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool completely on the baking sheets. (Do not remove them from the baking sheets while they are still warm or they may break.)
- Using a spatula, transfer the cooled crisps to serving plates and serve immediately or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Can you use “everything bagel seasoning” in place of the seasonings?
Best recipe out there
WOW, thank you! I’m so thrilled you enjoyed it, Dave!
When I made this, my crisps remained stuck to the wax paper. What did you guys do to get the wax paper off them? Thanks!
Hi Kara – You definitely don’t want to use wax paper. The recipe calls for parchment paper or Silpat baking mats. Wax paper will melt in the oven.
Obsessed! Thank you for feeding my everything bagel addiction in a whole new way!
Awesome! So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Elizabeth! Thanks for sharing a rating!
This is perfect add on for cheese & meat tray!!!
Absolutely, April! Enjoy! :)
These are absolutely divine! Simple to make and such a big hit! Everyone who has them wants the recipe. I just used shredded parmesan, more sesame seeds and poppy seeds because we love them and I mix all the ingredients well before baking. Comes out so pretty and what a delicious hit! Thank you once again Kelly. You are wonderful in every way!
So glad you’re enjoying the recipe, Jacklyn!
Hi. I’m confused by the 1/2 cup parmesan twice on the recipe.
Hi there Andrea! It’s 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese and then also 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese. You’ll want to have both preparations. Enjoy!
I’m still confused, what’s the difference between shredded and grated. Is one a finer grain. Can you use the Parmesan that is sprinkled from a container?
Hi Katie – The main difference between shredded cheese and grated cheese is that shredded cheese is like thin strips of cheese, whereas grated cheese is like powdered cheese. I hope that helps!
Yum! I’m definitely going to try these!
I can’t wait to try!
