Food Porn Friday – Episode 28: Cheese

I know what you’re thinking: “Have we really not already done cheese?”. No, reader, we have not. I’ll let you in on the reason: I don’t really like cheese that much.

Oh, I understand the pleasure of mozzarella melted onto a pizza, of a gloopy macaroni and cheese, of a sharp cheese toastie. Melted cheese isn’t a problem for me… much.

But I don’t eat hard cheese. Or strong cheese. Or smelly cheese. Which is why next year, Amy vs Fruit will become Hattie vs Cheese, and we will say goodbye to Food Porn Friday. I plan to do two more episodes, bringing us up to a pleasingly round thirty, before the end of the year. So get your requests in now.

Anyway, that is by the by. I probably like cheese enough to find four brunch recipes that I could imagine eating. Here we go.

There is one cheese that I have absolutely no problem with, and that’s mozzarella. It’s basically just… firm milk. I understand that’s what all cheese is, but mozzarella especially so. I also can’t see how you’d go wrong with crispy, thinly sliced sweet potato, or soft fried egg. This is a very tempting weekend brunch recipe indeed.

Cheddar and bacon are definitely another acceptable combination. Upper Crust in Norwich Train Station taught me that. This is basically the same, in that it’s bread stuffed with bacon and cheese, but there’s also egg, and red pepper (and green pepper, the lesser type of pepper). Amazing.

Everyone tells me I should eat feta, but I don’t eat feta. It’s too sharp and it doesn’t melt properly. This is one of the issues we will tackle in #hattievscheese. But I do eat baked eggs, so, I could probably manage this. It looks like the healthiest baked eggs recipe we’ve ever provided you with.

And, for your cheesy dessert, here’s a French toast sandwich filled with cream cheese and strawberries. Bon appetit.

Get your final #FoodPornFriday requests in sharpish, and I’ll see you… I dunno, sometime, when I have time. I’m definitely losing my blogging energy as Christmas gets closer.
