- Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
- Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Brush with oil.
- To make each parmesan nest, place 1 tablespoon of coarsely grated parmesan onto the baking pan, creating circles 2 ½ cm in diameter.
- The circles should be placed about 2 ½ cm apart. Bake for 3-5 minutes, until the cheese starts to bubble and the edges start to turn golden. Position small bowls, turned upside down on a working surface. Working quickly, use a spatula to transfer the cheese circles to the overturned bowls to create the nests.
- If they harden too fast and you can’t make the desirable shape, put them back in the oven for 1 minute and try to make the nests again.
- Combine the goat cheese with the heavy cream, thyme, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix until smooth. Use a spoon or a piping bag to fill each nest with the cheese filling.
- Decorate with finely chopped thyme or chives (optional) and serve.
