Crispy Parmesan cups with salmon dip recipe

Yields 10 cups


  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped dill
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 ounces smoked salmon, cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a food processor, combine the cream cheese, yogurt, dill, lemon juice and salt. Stir in the salmon, and then place in a container with a cover.
  3. On a silicone baking mat, place 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese in a flat circle. Repeat until you have about 4 to 6 circles on the mat. Bake in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Remove, and let cool for 1 minute.
  4. Using a spatula, remove the cheese circles, and set them into a muffin tin to form the cup shapes. Let the cups sit for 5 minutes, and then place a large scoop of dip into each Parmesan cup.
