So summer time there are always parties and events and when you are planning one of your own the challenge can be “what to prepare” and “how many guests will I have”? So the first thing is planning a menu and it could be extravagant or simple but what ever it is you want it to be fun and enjoyable.
Then you would need to decide if you want big bowls of food or individual servings or just appetizers. If it is a small gathering individual servings might be just what your party needs. You will want to chose recipes that work up quickly, and for most, dont have to be heated so 3/4 of the menu choices would be kept cool and are easy to prepare. And when I went to Pinterest there are unlimited ideas.
When I found the little bowls made of Parmesan cheese and filled with bits of Caesar salad, I stopped. I have made the Parmesan cheese chips and they are so quick and easy and they look pretty too! But never little miniature bowls and thought this would be fun.
2 cups (16 oz.) freshly grated Parmesan-Reggiano cheese (grate cheese using the smallest half-moonlike cutting edge on a stainless steel grater)
1 Et Tu Caesar Classic or Vinaigrette Salad Kit
1 fresh head of romaine lettuce
6 anchovy fillets (optional for garnish)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Place oven rack in the middle. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Make 1/3-cup-size mounds of grated cheese, 4 inches apart on the baking sheet. Gently spread cheese into very thin circles (if too thick, they will not become crispy).
Bake approximately 5 minutes until cheese is melted and turns into a crunchy, light golden crust. Don’t overcook, as they will become bitter.
Remove from oven and allow to cool 1 minute. Carefully remove crisps with thin metal spatula, placing on paper towels to drain. While still warm, place rounds into 6-inch ramekins or over inverted water glasses to shape. Remove from shaping when completely cool.
Prepare Et Tu Caesar Classic or Vinaigrette Salad Kit as directed on package. Place the prepared salad on 6 medium-size dinner plates. Place 1 Parmesan Cheese Basket on top of each salad.
Fill each basket with remaining salad. Garnish as desired.
Serving Size: Makes 6 Servings
This is just one idea if you were planning an event but……….
There might be a time when you dont have time to get involved in preparing many types of appetizers for a number of guests and when it might be a good idea to look into a catering service like flavourscatering.com.au A catering service can help you plan an event from food, drinks and desserts and they can be simple or elaborate as a wedding. Caterer’s are in the professional business of preparation, and creating delicious food, delivered, setup beautifully presented and served to your guests.
I found numerous ideas on Flavours Catering for appetizer’s and dessert ideas……………
Then there are scrumptious dessert ideas to choose from that leave your mouth watering!!
If you find yourself planning a party, wedding or gathering try and collaborate with a catering service, they are in the business to help make your event unique, so you can relax and enjoy the party or event, knowing that your guests will be served well.

What a great idea! I didn’t know you could do that w/ parmesan cheese… thank you for sharing this. 🙂
Thank you for your comment, yes they would be a great presentation for guest, they would get a kick out of them.
They are pretty easy to make, and the Parmesan cups can be made on a cookie sheet in the oven draped over the bottom of a muffin pan.
