Let's discuss fried cheese. What kinds of cheese have you fried, and how did you fry them?
I’m not talking about ”grilled cheese”, as in between two slices of bread, but actually frying cheese.
This question is inspired by the NPR food show where a caller asked about what kinds of cheese you can fry. I immediately though of the wonderful Greek dish, Saganaki. I love it, but it was never mentioned.
Tonight I was making cheese quesadillas and afterward, while the non-stick griddle was still hot, I sprinkled on Asiago cheese (about silver dollar sized), browned it, flipped it and when both sides were brown flipped it out to cool. Delicious! They suggested making chips this way to eat as appetizers, with salads, etc. Not health food, but a great treat.
What kinds if cheese have you tried frying, and what was your method?
