This odyssey of cheese grilling started almost a year ago. I had visited a friend in Ontario and while I was there I had sampled a cheese that had been grilled on their BBQ without melting. Naturally I was intrigued and wanted to try this for myself. Upon returning home but I had promptly forgotten the name of this special cheese and the whole notion slipped from my memory.
Seasons passed without a single thought of grilling cheese… Until…
…I saw the cheese in my local grocers flyer! How did I know it was the right cheese? The flyer told me: Halloom, Cheese You Can Grill!
I was elated. Obviously.
I wasted little time procuring the cheese, I wasted even less time telling just about everyone in my immediate circle about how I was going to grill cheese that doesn’t melt. All were intrigued. Suddenly there was an element of pressure. What if the cheese melted off? Just fell on the coals?
A) I wouldn’t get to eat it.
B) I would have to tell my immediate circle about my failure.
C) It would catch fire and smell real bad.
I assembled other ingredients so that I could make some tasty kebabs (zucchini, peppers, mushrooms, pineapple, red onion and, tomatoes) , even marinated some chicken! Things were looking pretty delicious.
So much potential. Will it all fail? Will things burn? Pry to this photo being taken I had lit the grill which caused a small fire ball. Sometimes I am not the most competent person. I was hoping that it wasn’t a sign of a pending downward spiral. However, I singed off no eyelashes or eyebrows and I can’t always say that truthfully.
They are on the grill!
…but wait, is that the first sign of melting I spy? At this time I am a teensy bit worried because, as you can see, the chicken is still extremely raw. This isn’t good you guys!
Oh No! IT IS STRAIGHT UP MELTING!
All is not lost. The cheese looks like it is going to melt but it ultimately doesn’t. It gets pretty black in some places. I feel like this may be my fault in some way since the last time I had it the cheese was this even golden brown. But it tastes buttery and good. All in all a success!
Go grill some CHEESE!
