3 Ingredient Baked Phyllo Chips

March 16, 2017

Nowadays it is very difficult to find a chip or cracker in the supermarket that doesn’t contain palm oil and a bunch of other not so great ingredients, so why not make your own chips? These are very easy to make and only require a few minutes to prepare.

I use regular phyllo (make sure the phyllo you buy does not contain any added fat), along with olive oil, grated cheese and herbs if you like. These are great as a snack on their own or you can serve them as an appetizer with one of the many popular Greek dips such as tzatziki, taramosalata, melitzanosalata.

    Elena, you are going to love this one…I made the pita chips using grated feta, kasseri and kefaloryri and chopped it more after grating and added mint and oregano. After taking out of the oven to cool, I left the kichen….when I returned…they were all gone!!!! All I had was the smells of the kitchen… lesson learned, after laughing…triple the recipe next time!!! They were a gigantic hit!!!!5 stars

    Excellent! I used Grated Parmesan, Sharp Cheddar and a little Mozzarella. I know this is more than the recipe, but these are the cheeses I had on hand. I placed one type of cheese on each layer. They were so fantastic. I sprinkled a little Penzey’s Seasoned Salt to give it a zing, too.5 stars

      Hi Aida, Yes, you should have 4 sheets though, not 3. Updated to clarify that.

    Hi Elena – these were fantastic! Thanks for the recipe. Can you explain what is the problem with palm oil please? Thank you!

      Aside from palm oil not being part of a Mediterranean diet, the production of it is very destructive to the environment
