What foods should cheese not be used in?

Asked by Kardamom (31411points) February 21st, 2015

This Q is based upon @ibstubro’s What foods should bacon not be used in?

Don’t answer this Q if you are lactose intolerant, a vegan, or otherwise don’t consume cheese for whatever reason, unless you can give a real answer to this Q.

This Q is for fun. Enjoy yourselves. I love cheese and right this second I’m having a hard time coming up with some dish or food where cheese does not belong.

Cheese shouldn’t go in jello. For me this is my default answer for all questions like this because I’m a jello purist. Fruit should be used sparingly if at all in jello. Everything else is a no.

No cheese in jello! Just say no!

@keobooks Winner winner, chicken dinner! How right you are! That would be awful.

We use to get Jello rings with cottage cheese and Jello in one level and Jello and drained and rinsed Sauerkraut in the other.

keobooks's avatar

No, @Tropical_Willie that is a great sacrilege. I really hope you’re kidding about the sauerkraut. That’s against God and nature.

Kardamom's avatar

Hmmmmmmm. @Tropical_Willie You might have actually turned me around on this one, and so quickly too. I do like the idea of the tartness and creaminess of the cottage cheese, and the twang and crunch of the sauerkraut, mixed with the cool sweet/tarness and smooth texture of the jello. Maybe cheese does belong in every dish after all.

Ice cream.

keobooks's avatar

I love me some cheese. Big time. But you have to draw the line somewhere.

Cheese and breakfast cereal…no
Cheese and Popsicles…no

I’ll think of more. It’s hard because I’ve long believed cheese makes everything better.

Kardamom's avatar

@chyna You might change your mind after looking at this recipe for Honey, Lavender, and Mascarpone Ice Cream. Sweet cheesus!

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Cheese and Cheerios. Just saying ! !

Chocolate mousse

I think we have to throw mascarpone and cream cheese off the cheese bus for the purposes of this question.

Kardamom's avatar

@janbb You’re probably right, but first let me leave you with this recipe for Raspberry Cheesecake Popsicles

Kardamom's avatar

Well, I just found another kind of cheese that just might pair well with the cereal. That would be ricotta. Check out this recipe for Ricotta Blueberry Granola Bars

I’m still heaving thinking of cottage cheese, sauerkraut and jello. That’s just wrong on so many levels.

Oh my daughter just told me that “square cheese”, what is better known as American cheese should not count as real cheese. I have a little cheese snob in the house.

And just because something exists, doesn’t mean that it should. Take orange and cheese juice for instance.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

@keobooks We call that kind on thing “cellophane cheese” because it is usually individually wrapped in plastic.

keobooks's avatar

cheese and kimchi. Cheese and sea urchin

ucme's avatar

Spotted dick, no one likes a cheesy di…

ibstubro's avatar

Almost make me eat Jello.
But not quite.

How could we throw mascarpone and cream cheese off the cheese bus??

Hmm. Well, hominy and okra are so revolting it would be a sin to waste good cheese on them?

No cheese and snow ice cream.

talljasperman's avatar

Pickled brine.

zenvelo's avatar

@Tropical_Willie has my thought: cheese and breakfast cereal is just wrong.

ibstubro's avatar

Pop. A little Coke and Colby, anyone?

Tropical_Willie's avatar

@zenvelo The cereal thing and wash it down with a dark and sweet porter like “Sweet Baby Jesus”.

@talljasperman Cucumber and Feta Salad is divine.

@keobooks Kimchi Quesadillas sound really good to me. A friend just gave me two jars of different kinds of homemade kimchi. Maybe I’ll have one of these tonight. : P Can’t say anything about sea urchin. I’ve never had it and never will.

@talljasperman This Cheese in Pickle Brine sounds pretty darned good.

@ibstubro I think you might be right about the snow ice cream, although I could see eating some fresh mozzarella along side of that or some sweetened ricotta, or whatever that stuff is they put in cannoli. I can also see, and have done, dipped a piece of tangy cheddar cheese into a coke (or rather Pepsi) back in the day. Sweet and sour and salty, yum.

@Tropical_Willie, This Restaurant in Pasadena, California, specializes in grilled cheese sandwiches and cereal. I can definitely see eating these two things together. Sweet and savory. Gooey and crunchy.

@ucme, I think a spotted dick would go very well with one of those sharp British cheddars.

Cream cheese and cucumber sandwiches are delicious classics for British tea parties.

Ingredients

4 oz whole cream cheese, softened to room temp
2 TB chopped fresh dill
Zest and Juice of half a large lemon
Salted butter, softened for spreading on bread slices
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
6 slices high quality white or whole grain bread
½ large cucumber, seeded and thinly sliced, thoroughly dried with paper towels

Directions
In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, fresh dill, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Add enough kosher salt and pepper to taste.
Butter each slice of bread (prevents sogginess.) Lay slices with butter side up on a work surface. Evenly distribute the cream cheese mixture onto each slice. Arrange towel-dried cucumber slices on top of the first 3 slices of bread. Top with remaining bread. Slice off the crusts. If not serving immediately, wrap tightly in cling wrap and chill for up to 24 hours.
When ready to serve, slice into 4 triangles per sandwich.

A peanut butter and cheese sandwich?

Aethelwine's avatar

I made a grilled peanut butter and cheese sandwich a few years ago. It was delicious. I will never snub cheese.

gailcalled's avatar

What kind of cheese? Maybe I am being too closed-minded.

janbb's avatar

(I have been know to say you could melted cheese on crap and I would eat it.)

syz's avatar

Ice cream.

keobooks's avatar

I think sea urchin wins the prize. Ain’t nobody got a recipe for sea urchin and cheese.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

@janbb Butter butter and Raspberry Jam, Salami and Swiss Cheese. Oh YAH !

Aethelwine's avatar

I’m ashamed to say American @gailcalled. It was late and I was tipsy.

CWOTUS's avatar

I see that @gailcalled skirted the entire issue, though it was staring her right in the face: Cheese doesn’t belong in tea.

Kardamom's avatar

@jonsblond I like peanut butter, jelly and Swiss cheese sandwiches.

@CWOTUS We have another winner! I don’t think I’d care for cheese in my tea. That being said, I just found a nifty recipe for Green Tea Cheesecake Bars.

AshLeigh's avatar

I love cheese with all of my heart and soul, but I wouldn’t want it on cookies, cake or in any form of beverage.

filmfann's avatar

Twinkies.

JLeslie's avatar

Salad. Especially some sort of American looking yellow cheese. Just gross. I always have to remember to ask the waiter if cheese is in a salad to make sure they don’t put it in my salad. The only exception I can tolerate is mozzarella pieces in very specific salads, but even then I think just leave it off altogether.

Cheese on a cold sandwich is yuck too. If I can’t heat it and melt it, I don’t want it.

ibstubro's avatar

Adding cheese to many Asian foods might suit an individual’s taste, but would be a perversion.

Egg drop soup (See Stracciatella)
Spring rolls
Peking Duck

Note: Spring rolls with Gorgonzola sounds like heaven so me, but I would come up with a new name.)

gailcalled's avatar

Caesar salad, defined by its lashings of grated parmesan cheese, is a great favorite of many. Traditionally, that means a mix of anchovy and the cheese, but today the anchovy is often omitted.

filmfann's avatar

I love cheese in salad!

janbb's avatar

I love goat cheese in a good green salad with walnuts and vinaigrette.

keobooks's avatar

Feta cheese in Greek salad. Mmmmmmmm

Kardamom's avatar

Salad without cheese seems like a travesty.

I do agree with @ibstubro that cheese in most Asian dishes would be kind of weird. Although the kimchi quesadillas sound really good.

Aethelwine's avatar

I think I have the answer.

Thin Mints. Thou shalt not eat cheese with Thin Mints.
