  • Line a baking sheet with a silicon baking mat (parchment paper works too). Place 1/3 cup of cheddar on the silicon baking mat to form a circle roughly 4-5 inches in diameter. Repeat with the other 1/3 cup of cheddar to make a total of two cheddar circles. Bake for 6-8 minutes until cheese is bubbling and edges have slightly began to brown.

  • Shred lettuce, slice ham, and cut tomatoes in quarters as shown below and set aside.
  • When cheese is bubbling and edges are slightly brown, take it out of the oven and let them cool for 1-2 minutes. Then place the cheese over the bottom of an upside down glass tumbler so it takes the shape of a bowl. Leave to cool completely for 3-4 minutes.
  • Once cooled, place shredded lettuce, ham, bacon, tomatoes in cheese cup and drizzle with mayo. Eat it with a fork or pick it up like a taco. Either way it’s delicious!
