CRUNCHY PARMESAN BOWL

For outstanding flavor and texture, make a Crunchy Parmesan Bowl. Spaghettiless is my favorite use for one.

NAME
Crunchy Parmesan Bowl

DESCRIPTION
I love cheese. Pick a cheese, any cheese. If left to my own devices, I would become a cheesatarian. Especially, Parmesan is one of my favorites. Versatile and salty, it adds a punch to foods.


When I started eating keto, I gave up bread and pasta. I missed the crunch of croutons and garlic bread with salads and pasta. Since Parmesan adds so much to a recipe, I began experimenting with it to create a Crunchy Parmesan Bowl. It took me a couple of tries to perfect my gluten free, low carb recipe. Once I discovered that soup cups are the perfect size, I was set to enjoy salad and pasta again.

Chef Alexa says that freshly grated Parmesan melts better and is free of additives. It will make a crispier bowl.


Usually, I serve Caesar Salad and Spaghettiless in these. You can make them in advance and hold for a couple of weeks in a resealable plastic bag. What else are you going to serve in the Crunchy Parmesan Bowl? Let me know.

Use soup cups to form the bowls. To save counter space, I double them up.

NOTES
Because of the attention needed to pay to each bowl, don’t try to do more than one at a time.
Also, make sure to let skillet cool completely between sessions. I use multiple ones.
Want to add some flavor? Incorporate crushed red pepper flakes or dried herbs into the grated Parmesan.
