“I got this great idea from a magazine my friend got. She told me the basics, I went home and gave it a try. It worked out beautifully. I can only imagine how beautiful the presentation would be using these as salad shells. They have a lacy, delicate look to them.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup inexpensive shredded parmesan cheese (more or less, depending on how many baskets you want to make)
  • 1 drinking glass


  1. Heat a 10" skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Sprinkle cheese (I just used what seemed to look right, didn't really measure) into a disk shape in pan, using less cheese around the edges (helps produce the lacy look).
  3. Allow cheese to get slightly golden underneath, then carefully remove it using a spatula.
  4. Quickly drape cheese disk, golden side up, over an upside-down glass and form into a bowl.
  5. Allow to cool completely.
  6. This produces one basket.
  7. Repeat instructions until you have the number of baskets needed.
