Next time you pick up some curds that aren't as fresh and squeaky as you hoped (or even if they are)… take a handful, maybe 5-7 good size curds and bunch them together in a single layer in a hot cast iron skillet. Put a cover on it and let it go 2 minutes. Flip like a pancake to cook the other side for another 2 minutes. There will be a cheese pancake with 2 sides of brown cheesy crust with a gooey middle of hot curd. Now you are ready to enjoy pure unadulterated crusty and gooey cheese bliss. No catsup, no miracle whip, no sweet pickles, no beans.

I really dislike cheese when it gets crusty, except for a tiny bit of browning on top of a pizza.

You're the first person I have ever heard say that. Some cheeses will produce a bitter flavor when browned which is not nice so I can understand that. Others are heaven, like these curds I am eating. The lightly browned parmesan on top of garlic bread. The crust on a Pequods pizza. The cheese that leaks out of my grilled cheese sandwich and gets crusty against the pan. The crust on top of baked fontina…dear god!!

Done that many times and its great. But this is next level.

Done it. The fresher the better, but alas, no cheese factory near me.

I suspect I'd make more exceptions after thinking about it, but I really hate when I make a quesadilla and some spills out and hardens on the griddle.

 

Loved Pequod's pizza, though... and a place around here does Detroit style with cheese out to the edges that's the same, and that's great too.  I guess context matters - I just don't like cheese that way by itself.

Those can be delicious. Just too much work for me on a Thursday at noon.

I think the ones they serve up at Sagwagon north rival what I got at the Old Fashioned.  Just sayin'.

I'll have to try them.  I wish it were more of a bicycle bar atmosphere, in the summer.  It feels more like a townie bar/diner.

Yup.  I've ridden down there at 6pm before and had the only bicycle in the lot among 30 cars.  Kind of odd for a "bike" stop, but I think it's good for the town.

Yeah this isn't the dairy part of the state that's for sure. Knowing where to pick them up when I come south every few months keeps me satisfied.

I'll say this, it is WAY better than Lebowski's in Robins.  I am not bothering to leave the trail for that place again.

I tried it once, because I have a buddy who lives within 500 feet of it, and I have to agree.  Not good.

yeah... but tossing them in the microwave for 30 seconds is even MORE LAZY than what you are doing...

 

just sayin...
