If you want an added flavor to your cheese crisps, you can use spices like black pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, Italian seasoning or garlic powder.

You can also add chopped nuts, seeds, fresh herbs, pimiento or bacon.

You can also bake the cheese chips in the oven. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Evenly spread the parmesan cheese on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes. Cool before cutting into chips.

You can also mold the cheese crisps into tubes, coned, baskets or shells. Make small batches of cheese crisps. While they are still warm, you can gently roll them into tubes or cones, put them in a muffin tin to form baskets or drape them over a wooden spoon handle or thin rolling pin to form shells.
