Bake them in the oven for 20 min at C200, turning them upside down after 10 minutes.

NOTE: If you like, you can fry the morsels instead of baking them in some oil until golden.

While¬†¬†the morsels are cooking, you’re ready to make the Parmesan crust. Get a sheet of baking paper and cut out a circle with a diameter of about 20 cm. Sprinkle it with Parmesan cheese.

Put this on a ceramic plate and cook in the microwave at full power for about fifteen seconds or until the Parmesan sizzles and turns golden. Now push with the help of a spoon the paper into a small bowl to give it a cup shape. Let it set in the refrigerator for about two minutes.
