CHEESE

30 posts in this topic

I am eating a light dinner of cheese and an apple. I love extra, Extra, EXTRA sharp cheddar to accompany the taste of the apple. This time, I bought "Heluva Good" brand "New York State Extra Sharp", and bleh, what a let-down. It's mild to the point of being flavorless, and it's way too creamy. I like my extra sharp cheddar to crumble when I cut it. Can anyone relate?

WE MUST MATE. I LOVE SHARP CHEESE THAT CRUMBLES.

AT LEAST BE CHEESE BUDDIES. WINE AND CHEESE.

Ewwwww, there is just something wrong about having the words, Mate and Cheese Buddies in the same paragraph. :AH-HA_wink:

Reg, call me. :AH-HA_wink:

A nice chunk of crumbly, extra-sharp cheddar with French's yellow mustard... YUM.

Dodgefan, it's that mingling of disparate flavors in your mouth that is sooo good. Plus, I was home sick today and didn't want to eat anything too wild.

I like grilled cheese sandwiches made with swiss cheese. Those are good, dipped in tomato soup. And the tomato soup has to be made with water... if it's made with milk it's just gross.

Oh, and a sandwich made with ginger snaps (or spiced wafers, whatever your region calls them) and American singles is just tasty.

Mmmm... and a salad with crumbled bleu and candied pecans or walnuts over spinach leaves with raspberry vinaigrette... LOVE IT.

Custom-S, buddy, what kind of cheese do you like, mate? :huh:

Feta's good in place of bleu. I've made an awesome salmon wrap with feta, grilled salmon brushed with bbq sauce, peach salsa, and lettuce. Tasty! Edited by ocnblu

I had always made grilled cheese sandwiches with American cheese until I went to Italy and found out they don't have American cheese (or any yellow cheeses), so I started making them with Swiss. Wow! Sorry Kraft, ain't going back!

LOL! Right on.

I love all the light colored cheeses...like Swiss, Havarti and most of all - provolone. The cheese in Europe puts our processed crap to shame, as far as I can see. I like bleu cheese, too, but in the dressing made by Bob's Big Boy with which I cover my salad and use as a dip for the french fries.

I am staying away from cheese a little more, though, as I was told to lower my cholesterol. I am not a fan of liquor, but I have two bottles of free Zinfandel a co-worker gave me. So I have one glass of this "vino" with some cheese and wheat crackers right before I go to bed. I'm trying to see if it really does lower the cholesterol count.

ocn and reg, cut it out...you guys are gross....LOL

I forgot.

If you HATE someone and you can get under the hood of their car, shred Limburger cheese all over the manifolds. Once it melts, yoooowwwww!

Have you ever smelled that stuff?

That particular combo is not my thing but I can see how

it would taste good to some people, interesting dinner.

I've been on a fine-chocolate kick as of late. Growing

up in Europe means I have always been obsessed with

good German/Belgian style creamy chocolate.

I can't believe noone mentioned the Italian cheeses. I use Parmesan like it's going out of style. Fresh mozzarella is great too - I have to try making a pizza out of that stuff. And there's ricotta - sweet, creamy ricotta :drool:.

Dude, I did ! Read above. Provolone...can't get enough of it, but stay away from large quantities because it's so damn fatty (YOU don't have THAT problem). :lol:
