I mentioned this stuff in my Figueroa Produce post. That is where I discovered and purchased this cheese. I am not sure where you might find it near you. This site might help you locate a distributor. At any rate – if you ever SEE this stuff – anywhere – BUY IT! It comes in the refrigerated section in a small block like this:
You slice some up
pan sear it over high heat for about 20-30 seconds on each side & you end up with a nice crisped, golden crust on a very flavorful soft cheese. Not sure why it browns & doesn’t melt – but even if that is because this is made of petroleum and not dairy – I’m still on board. The shit is ridiculous.
Top each bite-sized piece with a small basil leaf & pop them into your mouth. Crazy good & so, so easy!!!
