DC: Edible containers

The Daring Cooks were challenge in April to be creative and make savory edible containers. In the recipe they suggest to make a pumpkin bowl filled with creamy shrimp, a noodle basket for salads, or eggs in toast cups. Instead here is what we made:

First we prepared a pumpkin soup in a bread bowl:

Renata had this recipe in her blog, but we used this one. It is really a nice idea, and a very tasty one. We liked it a lot. The bowls remained though quite small, as they did not raise as much as we thought they would.

Later we prepared some bacon cups for baked eggs:

Ideal for breakfast and they are both delicious and pretty. Just remember that the bacon is quite salty, so you won’t need any extra salt. There are several recipes in the web, as here, here or here.

And we also tried to make some parmesan baskets:

Remember that they are again quite salty so try to use them to serve something really fresh!
