Okay…..I know it’s hard to see the cheese on this egg, but trust me…it’s there! Since the freedom of allowing myself higher protein and fat & less grains and carbs in my meals, I have been able to indulge in types of cheese I had almost forgotten about. I normally keep colby/jack and mozzarella in the house (in bulk from Costco), but very rarely strayed from those.
Cheese I’m enjoying these days:
- Monterey Jack (oh my!!)
- Muenster (another FAVE that recently moved Havarti over!)
- Pepper Jack
- Goat cheese
- Pecorino Romano
And I’ve been eyeing:
- Horseradish cheddar
I’m surprised I’m enjoying the sharper varieties I normally find too strong! I find that shredded into other things like eggs or on pizza that the flavors mellow and the notes are tasted in just the right places.
What cheeses are your favorites? What do you like to eat them on?
This was a breakfast of mine last week. It looked so pretty I just had to take a picture to share with you all! I couldn’t finish everything on this plate, so when I duplicated it for my breakfast this morning I only made one egg. No real recipe here….just fried up some Coleman hormone-free bacon & eggs. As eggs are finishing, finely grate monterey jack cheese over the top. It was SO good!! I find I don’t miss the toast like I thought I would….I just dip the bacon in my egg yolk.
Do you see my Minnie mug in the background of this pic? I bought her on a Disney trip in Spring of 2010 and she’s been a faithful companion since. I’m an avid tea drinker (even in the hot months I tote it around in a travel mug), and I just have to have the biggest mug possible for each cup of tea. Am I the only one?
And one day I’ll share more about the product that revolutionized my tea drinking habits.
