Remember when I made FrankenCheese? I actually made two kinds of FrankenCheese
For as much as I love bacon, I wanted to try something different with that second batch.
Ok, I’m lying.
I burnt the bacon.
I know.. I know.. horrible, horrible crime against the porky goodness, but I just.. well, I wasn’t paying attention, okay?
Well, so anyway, I went digging around in the pantry for things I could do with the basic FrankenCheese Recipe and found this!
and also? This!
Folks… this combination.. omg.. I just.. woah..
You know that time that you were sitting at a bar with a nice dark beer and you thought, “hey? I could use a snack.. I think I’ll order some jalapeno poppers to go with the beer”.. and you take a bite of your popper and you slug down a glug of beer and the taste explosion in your mouth is totally freaking awesome?
Yeah, that.. that is this cheese.
What makes this a little different is I used a young (orange) cheddar cheese… you know the stuff. I know you do. It’s cheddar but it’s not RESERVE Cheddar.. it’s not AGED cheddar.. it’s cheddar that’s wrapped in plastic and NOT wax. That’s the shit you want.
So here you go peeps, Bride of FrankenCheese. (I actually like this better than the bacon version. HERESY!)
As a child, Jeni fell in love with the Little House on the Prairie books, mostly because of all the wonderful things that were made at home from the simplest ingredients.
Most weekends, Jeni can be found in her kitchen creating the basics for future meals. Culturing cheese and yogurt, breaking down larger cuts of meat into usable portions or for future grinding, fermenting cabbage, preserving fruits and veggies or dehydrating snacks of any variety keep her busy pretty much all weekend.
When not involved in culinary pursuits, she enjoys knitting, crocheting, spinning and sewing as hobbies.
She lives in Albany with her partner of 11 years, their bullmastiff and one ol' cat who will outlive them all.
