  • 1 loaf Ciabatta, very thinly sliced
  • 3-5 garlic cloves, smashed
  • ¾ cup Parmesan, freshly ground, use more Parmesan if desired
  • 5-7 basil leaves, chiffonade
  • Fleur de sel, to taste
  • Olive oil, for drizzling


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Lay the slices of bread out on a baking sheet or two. Use however many baking sheets are needed to bake all the bread slices.

Compile the crisps

  • Smash the garlic cloves with your knife, and rub the garlic over each slice of bread. The juice from the garlic will flavor the bread perfectly. I usually use one large garlic clove per 2-3 slices of bread.
  • Next, drizzle a little bit of olive oil over the top of the bread slices.
  • Now sprinkle the ground parmesan over each slice of bread to preference.
  • Follow the parmesan with the basil. Place about 3-5 ribbons per slice of bread.
  • Now sprinkle each slice of bread with a bit of fleur de sel. This step makes a huge flavor difference, but a little bit goes a long way.

Bake the crisps

  • Bake the bread slices, one baking sheet at a time, at 375 degrees for 7-10 minutes, until the parmesan turns golden the basil is dark green. The bread will be just starting to brown.
  • Enjoy the garlic crisps alone as a snack, or with soups, salads, or any main course.


Use a good, hearty loaf of ciabatta.
Use freshly ground Parmesan.
These crisps are vegetarian.
