It's What's for dinner!

No, Not beef.


This is for all my foodie friends out there. Farmers' market season has started and this Dairy has a wonderful concoction called Gretna Grillin' cheese. It's divine. It tastes like fantastic grilled cheese (imagine that) without the bread. Here's what you do.

Cut the cheese into 1/2 to 3/4" thick slices or wedges.

Put a non-stick pan on medium heat, with NO oil of any kind. You'll see how the cheese cooks in it's own buttery tasting oil.

Place the pieces in the warm pan, but don't go far, it will only take a minute. See how it is getting all melty? Yum!!

Now flip them and brown the other side. I did one portion lighter and one darker, I like the darker, it's a bit crunchy. Don't overcook though.

When you are finished with both sides, you can place on a paper towel to get a little of the extra oil off. See the two different cooking times? I'd go with the darker.

Enjoy!! The dairy talks about things you can serve it with, but I found it delicious plain.

And for StarryNews, I used the "food" setting on the camera. :)

If you do not have a farm near you that makes this type of cheese, be sure to check out the shipping options with the Dairy.

Happy Eating!
