Easy Parmesan Baskets with Prosciutto and Melon Recipe

  • 3 cups Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, grated
  • 12-16 slices of Prosciutto di Parma or Spanish Iberico Ham
  • 1 medium honeydew melon cut in small squares
  • 6 bunches of micro greens leaves

  1. Divide the cheese into six portions.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan on medium, and sprinkle a portion of the cheese evenly, forming a circle on the pan. Flatten with a spoon and cook on both sides until golden. Remove carefully with a non-stick spatula and drape it over an upside glass of the size you prefer. It will naturally form the shape of a basket, but you can use a paper towel to shape it further. It will harden as it cools. Remove and continue with the rest.
  3. Once they’re all done, hardened and cooled, fill with slices of prosciutto, and arrange melon cubes and micro greens.
