Fricos are not difficult to make  and can be shaped into baskets or bowls which can make for a way of serving foods or salads that aren't too moist.
Another way to prepare frico consists in cooking diced potatoes in a large flat pan with little oil and onions, adding water now and then. When the potatoes are tender, Montasio or another 3 months old cheese is diced and added. The cheese will melt within the potatoes and the frico must be cooked and turned to obtain a crispy, golden surface on both side. Slice and serve it with polenta and red wine.
