Easy chips

Ahh. Summer where have you gone? I can't believe that Im about to start school in fewer than two weeks! Prison!! Luckily I have gotten in some cool summer recipes, like this one- baked cheese and basil chips. What is so awesome about these chips is that you can make them really quickly, and the possibilities are endless. I actually have another recipe to tell you about, a french onion soup. But I forgot to take pictures : ( The soup turned out great, but chopping the onions was. . . interesting. I got comments telling me to freeze my onions before using them, and that seemed like a great idea. The only problem being that almost all of my cooking and baking is spontaneous. So when I started to cut my onions, the burning began. What to do!? I went outside and put on svens swimming goggles ; ) lol. This worked, except for the fact that his head is smaller than mine, and the goggles almost sucked my eyes out of my head. haha.
Baked cheese basil chips

  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 30 wonton wrapers
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil, crushed
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan or Romano cheese.

Cut wonton wrappers in half making 60 triangles. Lay out on a greased baking sheet.

In a small bowl combine garlic, oil, basil. Lightly brush triangles with mixture, and sprinkle with the cheese.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 8 min or until golden.

Enjoy!

Swimming goggles...brilliant! My eyes usually water so much I can't see clearly and think that I'm going to cut off a finger when cutting onions.

Good luck in school. Enjoy your last few days!

Hey, you're lucky... my kiddo is already back in school.

These look like yummy little chips. I used to work for a catering company and we chopped lots of onions. The freezing thing works best... just about 10 minutes in the freezer for your onion. You can also set up a fan near where you're chopping and it will blow the fumes away.

Wow! Your chips sound so good! I am not the biggest chip fan either..but these I have to have!! Good luck with school!

Sounds great, what a unique use for wonton wrappers. And of course, you can never go wrong with crispy cheese.

Great idea for party finger food! Plus, they are really easy to make. Thanks for sharing.

I think the best way to deal with onions is to place a little fan near your working area — it will circulate the air and you't tear one drop. these crackers look great!

Nina Timm said...

Oh, I had a good laugh about the swimming goggles.....good idea though. I suppose these chips are a lot healthier than your normal ones..

Matin said...

Its a great idea and they look cool too:-)

One way to cut an onion without crying is to try removing the bulb before cutting the onion. Locate the bulb and cut around it at an inward angle... so you will be basically removing an ice cream cone shaped chunk from the onion.

Good luck with school!
