  • Serves: 4

Great as tasty nibbles, canapes or as an accompaniment to homemade soup, these savoury bites are quick and easy.


  • 100g(4oz) Parmesan cheese
  • 25g (1oz) plain flour
  • Ground white or black pepper

Stir 1tsp of black onion seeds into the mixture for a delicious addition.


  1. Grate the Parmesan finely, and set to one side.
  2. Mix the cheese with the flour. Season with a shake of white pepper, or a little freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Preheat a hot grill. Place rounded tablespoons of the Parmesan mixture, spaced apart, onto a baking sheet. Flatten them down slightly. Cook for 1-2 mins, until melted and beginning to brown. Remove from the baking sheet with a palette knife whilst still warm. Repeat until all the mixture is used up.
  4. Cool, then store in an airtight tin until ready to serve.

Hi Lydia - they're so versatile they could go with almost almost anything and make a great starter or party nibble. For your child's lunchbox I'd put them with some crunchy carrot and celery sticks, and for something more grown up I'd serve them with some slices of Parma ham and some juicy green olives. And maybe some dips like hummus or a cream cheese dip.


i am goimg to make parmesan bites next week. Is their anything nice a could eat it with? Also i want to put some in my childs lunchbox, whats could I put it with?

Hi Sharon, the mixture doesn't need to bind as you're putting it onto a flat baking sheet - the Parmesan melts which is what keeps them together. Katie, goodtoknow

How does the mixture 'bind'. There is no moisture, ie, eggs or water, to firm it up and make it hard.
