Everyone still likes the idea of cheese wrapped in bacon, right? How about….bacon wrapped in cheese??
Crazy, right? Yeah, totally off the rails!
Well the other day I was looking at cheese and not intending to buy any because THE PRICE OF CHEESE HAS GOTTEN WAY OUT OF HAND!
But then I spotted Apple Cider cheese and seeing how it’s October and all that, I felt like I better buy it now or it might disappear until next year, at which point I’ll probably have forgotten about it. So I bought it. Yeah. $6.64 for 0.128kg. Yes, That is $51.90/kg of cheese.
Let me Americanize the cost for you:
0.128kg = 0.282 lbs
Since the Canadian dollar is almost equal to the American dollar, that basically comes out to around $6.50 US for 0.282 lbs of cheese. That’s right. When it comes to the price of cheese, we’re being screwed. Prison style.
Anyhow, this Apple Cider cheese from kinda local cheese makes Les Dependances in St-Hubert is a semi-firm surface ripened cheese. Firm enough to slice thin, which was necessary for wrapping bacon in it. Does it look tasty or what? Super mild, but with a verrrry velvety texture. I would totally sleep in a cheese this velvety.
Then slice it thin. Real thin. During this time you’re also frying up some bacon. You know how to do that so I won’t show you. Again.
Then slice the bacon in halves, roll it up, secure with toothpicks, wrap the cheese on it (next time I need longer cheese slices).
They kind of ended up looking like those pigs in a blanket hors d’oeuvres things, which I guess they kind of are being cochon and all.
Was it good? Hell yeah.
