It would be fair to say that I am a parchment paper junkie. I use it anytime I bake or roast anything in the oven or in my toaster oven.
That means when I am making cheese toast,
The benefits of parchment paper are many and my favorite reasons to use it on the daily are:
- protects your sheet pans,
- makes clean-up easy,
- prevents sticking,
- helps promote even cooking especially if you have dark cookie sheets and bakeware.
I line sheet pans when I’m setting out my mis en place because I can write notes to myself directly on the parchment paper. I even use it as a prop when I’m shooting food.
That is why I was so excited that Frieling is launching unbleached parchment paper from Germany.
The launch includes:
- Pre-cut Sheets on roll of 13 x 16 1/2 unbleached parchment paper that fit perfectly inside a half-sheet pan
- Endless Sheet on roll of 13” x 72′ unbleached parchment paper so that you can cut off exactly what you need
- Baking Sheets 9″ round in a box
- Air Fryer Liners 9″ round with holes in a box
- Freezer Paper Sheets 6″ Square in a box
These are both pantry staples because sometimes you need a little and sometimes you need a lot. When
you’re baking cookies or roasting vegetables on a half-sheet pan, use the pre-cut parchment paper. When I’m cooking in my toaster oven I always reach for the roll of parchment paper so that I can cut off just what I need.
Rounding out the line are rounds that fit in a 9-inch cake pan and perforated parchment paper made especially for air fryers.
One of my favorite things to make that literally makes everything taste better are prosciutto chips. They can be served on their own, as part of a cheese board or crumbled to make everything taste better! This 1-ingredient recipe only needs a sheet pan, a piece of parchment paper and the heat of your oven. Once you make them, and start adding them to everything, you won’t be able to go without—they are addictive!
About 8 pieces of thin-sliced prosciutto but you can bake as many as you want
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Line a half-sheet pan with a piece of parchment paper.
Arrange the prosciutto in a single layer on the baking sheet and place in the center of the oven.
Bake until wrinkled and slightly shrunken, 11 to 13 minutes. Cool before eating as It will crisp as it cools.
Enjoy as a snack, on a cheese board, or crumbled and sprinkled on everything—anything that you would add bacon to or anything that benefits from crispy ham.
I hope you will be baking a lot of pumpkin and apple treats this month—I know I will! Enjoy the crisp cool weather and I’ll see you next month!
