There’s a National Cheese Lovers’ Day, but this food “holiday” shouldn’t be regulated to one fleeting day. We deserve cheese pulls galore every day — am I right, fellow cheese lovers?
If you’re hoping to make this weekend a cheese extravaganza, why not try some of Salon Food’s stellar, uber-cheesy dishes? They’re all immensely, deliciously cheese-laden — and we couldn’t recommend them more.
To really up the cheese factor, you could pair one (or more than one) of these recipes with a cheese plate or cheese-centric dessert. On Netflix’s superb new show “Pressure Cooker,” one of the chef-contestants states during a cheese challenge that “you’ve never heard of pecorino ice cream.” But, frankly, why not?
When it comes to cheese, does the limit exist? Without further ado, here are 11 easy, cheesy recipes from Salon Food that taste like comfort:
If that hasn’t sold you yet, perhaps this will, as told by Williams herself: “I made this on a recent evening after a rough day of blood work at the doctor, and I felt comforted and fortified after only one bite. I can’t guarantee it will fortify you in the same way, but I do know there aren’t too many days that can’t be made better with cheese and chips for dinner.”
As Williams writes, “You can buy regular, low-moisture supermarket mozzarella, cube it up and fry it pretty effortlessly any night of the week. But there’s something really cute — and really tempting — about those little cheese balls known as bocconcini. Round stuff is just fun.”
Alas, the piece de resistance!
This is one of my favorite recipes of all time. I hope you will say the same after making it.
