One of the greatest things about working in a restaurant when you're growing up is all of the unique foods you get to learn how to cook. By 20, most young adults can barely make pasta. I learned this great trick in my undergrad working at a spot on campus and it's been a dinner party favorite ever since! Try this easy recipe and enhance your cooking repertoire.
Heat your skillet to medium and let sit until warm.
Lightly sprinkle your cheese around the skillet to create what will become your cheese bowl (see image).
Once you have your cheese layer browned and firmed up, take it off the heat. Using a spatula slowing begin to lift the edges of the layer off the skillet. It is important to keep the cheese layer intact so that your bowl is intact. Completely peel the cheese from the skillet.
Immediately place your cheese layer over an upside down bowl. This will act as a mold for your cheese- bowl. Let cool for 3-5 minutes until the cheese has hardened. You will also want to try to curl the edges in more once you take off the bowl, but its easier to work with once its cooled and a little bit round.
Fill your bowl with your desired filling (usually a salad) and enjoy!
