Shave Off Some Carbs & Make It Gluten Free
And because my family and I are trying to eat lower carb I used Cello Whisps Parmesan Cheese Crisps that I crushed up instead of traditional bread crumbs. This recipe is not sponsored by Cello or anything like that, this is just a product I really love and like to use in place of bread crumbs because they are gluten and wheat free.
If you are on a gluten free diet there are several options that you can use in this recipe including some delicious gluten free salad dressings that are out there on the market. If your not on any sort of special diet…use regular bread crumbs.
My family really enjoyed this meal and we will definitely have it again and again!

What are parmesan whisps? Had no luck looking it up…some kind of cracker maybe?
Lady Heidi says
The Parmesan Whisps are a gluten free cracker. We have included a link to them in the blog post but if you cannot find them you can use any other gluten free cracker if you are on a gluten free diet, if your not on a GF diet regular or seasoned bread crumbs will work too.
Lady Sarah says
Barbara I find them in the premium deli area of Walmart (so where the really nice cheeses, deli meat, pre made salads and sandwiches are. As Lady Heidi mentioned if you need Gluten Free Any kind of gluten free cracker or gluten free Parmesan chip should work just grind them up. If you do not need gluten free, just use normal bread crumbs.
You don’t need to buy those expensive Parmesan crackers — make ’em!
Spread a piece of wax paper over a cookie sheet … make little piles of parm cheese … sprinkle with a bit of S&P, paprika, garlic, even Italian spices — whatever you like — as much or as little as you please — or nothing at all … bake 400 degrees 4-5 minutes. Allow them to cool before you pull them off the wax paper.
One more thing: I mean real shredded Parmesan cheese … not the powdered stuff in the green can.
Lady Heidi says
Yes you can make them yourself! Very easy! Thanks for the tip TP 🙂
