This is kind of a fun one. It's ... 100% CHEESE!!! It should also be said that this particular bowl is about the size of an upturned beanie.
A few months ago, I made very small parmesan cheese cups
. Around the same time, I made some hazelnut crackers
. Both spawned several emails and comments about bigger bowls, cheese shapes and "other" things which can be used for dipping. This led me to deciding to make a bigger bowl, with a different cheese and then suggest you break it up for "chips" ... with which to dip ... OR ... fill it up with stuff, like a Taco Salad
These bowls are a lot of fun, completely and totally and utterly delicious and quite strong, too! They will hold your salad, or grilled chicken, or whatever you choose to put in it (nothing with too much liquid, though. Soup would be a disaster!)
They are little more than cheese melted and fried in a non-stick sauté pan. Once it's sufficiently fried, it's scraped out and IMMEDIATELY draped over a upturned bowl or cup, where it will form its shape and harden. YAY!
Again, this can be simply broken up and used as chips for a nice salsa, or any other creamy dip. Finally, you don't need to limit yourself to bowls. Try hanging the cheese sheets over a wooden spoon handle sitting over a pot ... TACO SHELLS!
