Cheddar Cheese Bacon Cheeseburger Bowls

Cheddar Cheese Bacon Cheeseburger BowlsBack in April I discovered Folios Cheese Wraps at my local grocery store and professed my love for them after I used one of their Parmesan wraps to make an edible bowl that I filled with Cobb Salad.

Apparently everyone else loved them as much as I did, because for months these things were sold out everywhere and I never got another chance to try them.

Well, about a month ago Folios contacted me to let me know that they’d recently finished expanding their production facility and they even shipped me a box of Folios which contained all three of the flavors that they offer — Cheddar, Jarlsberg and Parmesan.

Since it had been a good five months since I was last able to get my hands on these cheese wraps I had a plethora of ideas in my head as to what I should make with them and here’s the first recipe — Bacon Cheeseburger Bowls!

The process to create the Cheddar cheese bowls for these is the same as it was when I made Parmesan cheese bowls that I filled with Cobb salad. You just need to take a Folios Cheese Wrap and stick it in the microwave for one minute and then immediately form the warm cheese around a glass bowl.

After about another minute the cheese will start to cool and hold its shape and you can remove the parchment paper so you’re left with a Cheddar cheese bowl to fill with the bacon cheeseburger bowl recipe you see below or anything else your little heart desires. I’m totally filling my next one with scrambled eggs and bacon!

    FANTASTIC!
    BUT I MODIFIED THE RECIPE! STILL FANTASTIC!

    TRY THESE USING GROUND TURKEY INSTEAD OF GROUND BEEF.
    LIGHTER, LESS FAT, & MORE HEART HEALTHY!

      “Less fat” is not better or more heart-healthy. This isn’t 1985. Your body actually needs fat & cholesterol. 🙄

        NOPAH Bill actually has the right idea. Lower fat is healthier as long as it’s the right kind of fat . Since ground turkey has less saturated fat that ground beef, it IS healthier for your heart than beef. Read the following to educate yourself and maybe try to be less condescending and do a little research before speaking.
        From a Harvard paper I found on line:

        The good and the bad

        To understand the role of fat in heart health, you first have to look at where it’s found in food. There are two types of fat: saturated and unsaturated.

        Saturated. This “bad” fat is found in animal products like beef, pork, and dairy products such as butter, cream, and cheese. Major sources of saturated fat are fast, snack, and processed foods, such as pizza, dairy desserts, bacon, hamburgers, and cookies. If it’s considered junk food, odds are it contains saturated fat.

        Unsaturated. This is the healthy fat, and there are two kinds: monounsaturated and polyunsaturated.

        Monounsaturated fats are found in avocados, peanuts, and peanut butter, and tree nuts like almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, pistachios, and pecans. High amounts are also in oils, such as olive, peanut, safflower, sunflower, and canola oil.

        Polyunsaturated fats include omega-6 fatty acids and omega-3 fatty acids. They are considered essential fats because your body can’t make them and you have to get them from food. Omega-6s are in oils like soybean, corn, sesame, and peanut. They’re also abundant in walnuts, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, and flaxseeds. Omega-3s are in canola and soybean oil, and fish, like salmon, mackerel, herring, tuna, and trout.

        Lowering your risk

        How does fat help (or hurt) the heart? It has to do with lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. Saturated fat raises LDL cholesterol levels. LDL cholesterol gets in the walls of arteries, causing atherosclerosis, a form of blood vessel disease that can lead to heart attacks and strokes.

        “Decreasing saturated fat in your diet thus can lower your risk of heart attacks and strokes,” says Dr. Sacks.

        But it isn’t enough to simply cut out bad fat. You need to replace it with good unsaturated fats.

        Unsaturated fats are good for your heart because they help lower blood pressure and reduce triglycerides, a type of fat in your blood, which slows the buildup of plaque in arteries. In fact, a 2015 study from the nutrition department of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that healthy people who switched out saturated fats in their diet for the same amounts of polyunsaturated or monounsaturated fats lowered their risk of heart disease by up to 25%.

        Making this switch can also help protect against diabetes, a significant risk factor for heart disease, by improving blood glucose (sugar) levels, according to an analysis of observational studies involving almost 5,000 people, published online July 19, 2016, by PLOS Medicine.

        The researchers found that switching as little as 5% of daily calories from saturated fats to unsaturated fats lowered average glucose levels enough to reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes by 22% and cardiovascular disease by 6.8%.

        Trans fats: Going, going, almost gone

        The worst type of fat is trans fat, which has been shown to raise LDL cholesterol levels. Trans fats are found (typically in the form of partially hydrogenated oil) in many common baked goods like crackers, cookies, cakes, biscuits, and rolls, as well as in other snack foods and fast foods. However, they have become less of a health concern since the FDA pressured food manufacturers to eliminate them. They are nearly gone from most food products, but always check the Nutrition Facts panel on the label to be safe. Be aware that even if the label says zero grams of trans fat per serving, there still may be up to 0.5 grams.
