SAUTEED CHEESE ~ COOKING WITH CHAYA

This is a tasty creamy treat which I wish, I could take credit for.  I found the recipe on the blog of Girlichef, a place where you will find other outstanding recipes.  Heather even makes her own cheese.


One look at this wonderful sauteed cheese and I just had to try making it.  I used four different kinds of cheese but only two of them, retained their shape.  The cheddar and goat cheese melted down into a delicious mush.  The other two stayed intact and were a real treat.  I would make even the mushy ones again; that is how good these are.

Sautéed Cheese
Ingredients:  
Feta Cheese, Cheddar, Goat and Mozzarella
brown rice flour  (try this with Panko crumbs)
olive oil
I used no seasoning with the flour, guessing the cheese was strong enough to hold its own which it did.

Method:
  • Cut the cheese into slices 1/2 inch thick. 
  • Pour some flour onto a plate.  Dredge each piece of cheese in flour, shaking to remove excess and set aside for a moment. Place a large cast-iron (or nonstick) skillet over medium-high heat.  Spray on a thin layer of olive oil, and once it is very hot, add a few cheese pieces to the pan (being careful not to overcrowd) and brown for ~1 minute per side.   
Heather  made sauces for these but I was too impatient to do this and ate them out of the pan. Heavenly.
These are the cheeses that melted.
These retained a shape.

These are definitely a favorite of mine.
My apologies about the photos.  I didn’t take any others and these are not the best.  Regardless, take my advice and try this.  I do want to find a way to make this in the oven, in order to eliminate the oil.
