Parmesan Bowls

These are the cutest little cheese bowls.  But, I’m easily amused, too. 🙂  Perfect bowls for your favorite cold salad like: Crab Salad, Chicken or Tuna Salad… and the list goes on.

I made a relatively small Parmesan bowl.  I used 1/4 cup shredded parmesan.


In a non-stick pan over medium heat.  Sprinkle shredded parmesan cheese.  Cook until cheese is melted. Flip once – turn heat off.  Invert a drinking glass and place cheese on top.

When cooled you’ll have a perfect little Parmesan bowl.
