Crispy morsels with tomato and basil

15 min
  • 160 g grated Grana Padano cheese
  • 85 g tomato Flan (1 pot)
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 basil leaves

To make the crispy cheese wafers:

1. Heat a fan oven to 200°C, and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

2. Grate the cheese and then use a tablespoon to arrange the cheese in 6 small circles, each one about 2-3 cm in diameter.

3. Then put the baking tray in the oven for 3 minutes until the cheese has melted to create some round wafers. Take the tray out of the oven when the wafer edges are golden brown.


For the filling:

4. Put the tomato Flan into a small bowl, add a pinch of salt and pepper and a teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil. Stir it all into a smooth cream.

5. Put the wafers on a tray, and then use a pastry bag (or a tablespoon) to put a little of the cream on each wafer.

6. Wash the basil leaves, and then decorate each morsel with a green basil leaf.


A personal touch can be added to this dish according to taste. 

Those who love cheese with a stronger flavour can choose a tasty cheese such as Pecorino.


If you prefer a more pronounced Mediterranean taste, you can add some oregano to the cream filling.
