Fromage Fort is a great way to use up those bits and bobs of cheese you have scattered throughout your refrigerator and freezer.
As I typically do, I started the new year by taking a deep dive into my refrigerator and freezer to unearth and salvage whatever foods had been buried over the past couple months and holidays. However, unlike past years, this year I put in place some true organization that I hope will prevent all the buried and wasted foods in the future. Stay tuned…more to come on that.
Inevitably, through the freezer excavation process I discover food that can be combined for the making of a meal. Surely, we’ve all made ‘Clean out the Freezer’ soup, right?
And since we are a family of cheese lovers, I typically end up with bits and bobs of various cheeses that have been tucked away in the deep dark recesses of the freezer. While not all of these cheeses may be great for cutting since many frozen cheeses tend to crumble, I do use them as ingredients in dishes.
But another great way to use up leftover cheese bits is Fromage Fort (translated as Strong Cheese).
If you google ‘fromage fort’ you will find that there are as many recipes as there are entries. It’s one of those ‘recipes’ that really don’t require a recipe…which is my favorite kind of recipe.
