Cobb Salad in a Parmesan Cheese Bowl

Cobb Salad in a Parmesan Cheese BowlHey! I actually made something healthy for once!

Although, I guess that a salad containing egg, bacon, avocado and a generous amount of ranch dressing served in a bowl made entirely out of Parmesan cheese isn’t technically healthy, but in my deep fried, bacon wrapped world this is basically the equivalent of eating a giant pile of kale.

To create the Parmesan cheese bowl I used a Folios Cheese Wrap, which is a product I’ve been hooked on ever since I discovered them at the grocery store a few months back. For $5.49 you get a package of four cheese wraps and they’re available in three different flavors — Cheddar, Jarlsberg and Parmesan. Sorry if this sounds too much like a sponsored post — because it isn’t — I just really dig these things.

Anyway, all I did was take one of the Parmesan wraps, microwave it for 60 seconds on a piece of parchment paper and then flip it on top of an upside down bowl. A minute or so later I had a Parmesan cheese bowl that I packed with lettuce, tomatoes, bacon, egg, avocado and blue cheese crumbles!

If you can’t find the cheese wraps anywhere you could accomplish the same thing by melting some cheese in a pan, using a spatula to transfer it to a piece of parchment paper and then forming it around the bowl, but these wraps make it so much easier.

Aside from making cheese bowls though these wraps are a pretty great substitute for taco shells as well. I’ve even used them a couple times in lieu of a pita when making gyros. Now if you’ll please excuse me I need to go wrap a bunch of stuff in bacon so I can deep fry it! I’m sick of eating healthy!
