Cheese on toast

EARLIER TONIGHT Mrs Kasman asked me to make cheese on toast for her supper. This is one of her favourite suppers but it's one I simply cannot abide!

I hate the way the cheese goes all bubbly and stringy and sticks to everything it touches. Maybe that's because of the cheese we use. We normally buy a mild cheddar and use that for everything - sandwiches, salads, etc.

Perhaps if we changed the cheese we use for cheese on toast it wouldn't seem to disgusting to me and I might actually enjoy it. Our local supermarket has a good selection of cheese but it has never occurred to me to question which one would be best for cheese on toast.

I might be persuaded to try a different type, perhaps one of those cheese which have fruit in them. I have tasted a cranberry cheese and quite liked it but I'm not sure how it would be toasted. Perhaps I will experiment a little.

Mrs Kasman enjoyed her cheese on toast whilst I had plain, ordinary, buttered toast for my supper!

I love cheese on toast with a tonne of pepper on it - not even that fussy about what cheese is on it because I love cheese. Unfortunately for me I have recently become lactose intolerant and lacto free cheese tastes nothing like cheese!

I hope you had water with your bread! We used to have (at school) an open-faced tomato, bacon, and cheese sandwich, grilled. It was quite good. But, frankly, I don't enjoy cooked cheddar.

I love cheese on toast but then I love cheese! (Except blue cheese, not fond of that) Have you tried Marks and Spencer? They have recently been selling really good mature cheddar cheese for about half price. Sometimes it's Welsh cheddar (Llanddywrnog), sometimes it's cornish cheddar. Both are mature cheddars. There is also cornish cruncher but that is VERY mature and quite salty. I have found the mature cheddar is quite different when toasted from the mild cheddar. It doesn't tend to run, it basically sits there and gets toasted! One of my granddaughters likes toast with a slice of cheese with it (not toasted on it). Maybe you would prefer that?

Very tasty. I like cheese grilled on bacon. Tomato makes it healthier.

What a shame. No yogurt, no cheese, no milk shakes. Although yogurt may be ok? I have heard that it can be tolerated by people with lactose intolerance?

I favor cheese but mainly I do enjoy toast and butter in the morning. American cheese is used for making lots of grilled cheese sandwiches. I guess I could try using that cheese with cranberries to see if I like it. It sounds interesting.

I eat yogurt with breakfast when I am at work it depends on the amount in a way, the first day I'm usually ok the second day not bad but if I have it a third day I know about it! I can take small amounts of things with lactose in them but it depends what I have - if I am out and about I can have a coffee and be ok but if later on that day say I was to have a slice of pizza, the cheese would go for me whereas a different day I could have the pizza without having first had the coffee and I would be ok. Its a bit strange and I am still trying to figure it all out but it seems that things that are cooked aren't as bad for me, I cant take milk in cereal at all now, but can drink a latte it doesn't make sense at all but that's how it works for me. I have to say that most of the lactofree stuff is nice, and Tesco have a fab free from range, but I cant go the cheese at all, never mind the fact that its at least twice the price of normal cheese! Milk seems to be the worst thing for me, but I definitely don't have a cows milk allergy because lactofree milk is cows milk with added lactase to break down the lactose and I drink a tonne of the lactofree milk.

It is amazing the amount of things lactose is in that you don't think about though, which is probably why it took me a long time to realise that it was the lactose that was causing me the problem. it was only when I realised that every time I ate cereal I was having an issue that I realised that the problem had to be connected to the milk and I tried the lactofree for a week and had no issue with my cereal. Once I started changing to lacto free versions of just about everything else and noticed the difference I figured the issue was definitely lactose, although I can still have the odd late which I find strange but I am very happy about because I love coffee!

With c-r-a-n-b-e-r-r-i-e-s? Cranberries? That sounds truly weird. I guess you enjoy it and that is what matters. But how did you come up with that combination?

Cranberry cheese was mentioned in this post. I never had it before and don't know where they sell such cheese. However, I have a link for you here below about this cranberry cheese:

In the UK, you can get white stilton with apricots or with cranberries and possibly some other combinations too. They are very tasty and go well together but they are expensive, so I tend to stick to the mature cheddar and occasionally buy one of the other cheeses as a treat.

lookatdesktop VinceSummers - In the UK most supermarkets and delicatessens have a good selection of cheeses flavoured with different fruits (and some with nuts). Some of these I like but many are an acquired taste.

I have tried non-toasted cheese on a slice of toast and I quite like it.

Hah! How about that! A bit of exotic cheese blended with bits of cranberry. I didn't realize you were a connoisseur old boy! Maybe I hear MasterChef Senior calling Oddly, I enjoy breaking off Romano cheese from a wedge and eating it straight. Its lovely tang (much better than Parmigiano) works for me.
