Pan-Seared Cheese

From the appetizer menu at a favorite restaurant in Rosarito, I tried the
"Fried Cheese". Liked it so well I've been trying it at each camp we stay.

If you chase it down, look instead at "seared cheese" . . . which is all it is.

You will find several cheeses to try.

Alfredo, owner at the restaurant Tapanco in Rosarito, uses Baby Jack cheese. Comes with fine virtues for the purpose.

Through my trials . . .

- Pan must to be hot. Water drop siizzles away quickly.
- Thin spatula will better separate the crust from the pan.
- Ready to turn when crust appears around the edges . . . early as 15-20 seconds on a pretty hot pan.
- If cheese begins to melt, you've gone long.

Still working on it. I like the crust.

I actually do this sometimes to finish both sides of my omelettes. When timed right you get a nice crispy cheese finish that simply amazing

You can also splash in a tbsp. of brandy on top of the cheese right after it hits the pan, and jump the flame into the pan; the flambé goes out about the same time the cheese is done. I learned it using Greek Kasseri cheese and Metaxa..... I would imagine some El Presidente would work good with a dry goat's cheese as well.
