The baking process produces a cheese that can be heated and will still maintain its shape, similar to Greek halloumi. It is used in both savory and sweet preparations, and my favorite way to eat it is to simply warm it in a pan with some butter (yep, you heard that right) and then eat the oozy pieces straight out of the pan. Seriously, it will make you think of the best grilled cheese, ever and you will see no need to bother with the bread.
It is also served as breakfast fare, warmed up and served with maple syrup or fresh berries, as pictured above. Coffee drinkers have been known to drop cubes into a cup of hot coffee to let it seep out some milky goodness as you sip, and by the time you reach the bottom of the cup there is a soft cube of cheese waiting to be devoured. I am not a coffee drinker, but Harrison can vouch for this technique.
This is one of the original “fast foods” and it makes a great breakfast, snack, or dessert.
