Sauteed Cheese

Girlichef made this wonderful sauteed cheese and I just had to try it.  I used four cheese and only two worked.  The cheddar and goat cheese melted down into a delicious mush.  The other two held their shape and were a real treat.

Sautéed Cheese


Ingredients:  Feta Cheese, Cheddar, Goat and Mozzarella
brown rice flour
olive oil

Method:
Cut the cheese into slices 1/2 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.  Pour on a thin layer of olive oil, and once it is screaming 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.

  3. This sounds great! Actually, it's like Saganaki which is served in many restaurants around here in the Chicago area. After sauteing Kasseri cheese, brandi is poured over it and then it's flambeed at the table and the flame is extinguished with squeezing juice from a lemon over it. Delicious! I make it at home without flaming it.
