Cheesy Propositions

October 31st, 2014 No Comments Tags: , ,

I found myself up north recently in cottage country. I came prepared to make some fast and easy meals to enjoy in front of the fire. One key staple in my Mary Poppins bag of tricks was cheese. I thought, hmmmm, here’s a cheesy proposition using this versatile ingredient 6 ways:

Antipasto Platter – I love the versatility of making a pleasing platter. Depending on the day and what I have on hand I arrange the following ingredients and enjoy as a meal or with a meal: cheese cubes, olives, nuts (almonds, walnuts, pistachios, etc.), fruit in season (cut up apple, pear, berries, plums, etc.), crackers or slices of French stick.

Eye on Pizza Pie – My oh my, this flash in the pan pleases the palate and is enjoyed with a side salad. The leftovers are perfect for another dinner or lunch or breakfast on the run!

Mac & Cheese Please - This filling delight is a one-pot wonder which’ll make you wonder why you don’t make it more often. It’s a family delight that goes well with a side veggie of green peas. I recently made the Brooklyn Style Mac & Cheese which was astoundingly delish!

Indy’s Specialty – Grill Cheese – One of my fave’s is this dish by no other than my food-loving Ukrainian who doubles as a chef sometimes! Very divine and tastes great with this side green salad.

Weenie Bocconcini – This is a perfect combination with dinner or as a meal with some fresh crusty bread. It is artistry for the senses and never disappoints.

What’s Better than Feta? I love this devilish delight right out of the oven with artisan bread – fast and easy and is sure to please you.

There you have it folks, some cheesy propositions to accompany your meal or become the main course. Use your imagination as you scout what you have on hand in your pantry and fridge and incorporate it into your repertoire. You can be a klutz in the kitchen and these’ll still work out deliciously – get cooking!
