sprinkled on to pasta dishes
melted into sauces
for cheese on toast
Don't be that guy.
The only unacceptable use for it is on a cheeseboard.
Or for non-cheese related activities. Such as using grated cheese as a substitute for dishwasher salt, for instance.
I'd probably want my parmesan "shaved", and obviously if we're talking feta on a greek salad, well nobody's would ever try to grate feta.
Actually I'm struggling to think when this would be acceptable.
never actually bought pre-grated cheese but you just know it's gonna be a little bit stale.
Tomato-based soup though, obviously.
you stinking piece of shit
Inferior, but perfectly acceptable.
It's pretty good if you're trying to lose weight by eating less cheese. Grated cheese covers more distance and, therefore, means you don't need to put as much on.
Fair enough if you're trying to de-chub I guess.
unless of course you're talking about the pre-grated stuff?
Not sure on the soup. I'll have to consult with the 4th official.
Grated on to the crouton that sits atop french onion soup.
we need to have a sandwich off. same ingredients (you can even choose them) and we'll do a pepsi challenge.
but it does stretch a small amount of cheese into a larger amount. You can always make sure it stays in with plenty of butter or mayo and kind of press it down almost into a patty.
used as paperweight
jury's still out on soup. I don't like french onion soup (or tomato that much) so I can't really call.
I'm enjoying the mental image of grated cheese on a cheeseboard.
Chips and cheese is amazing (not on chip shop chips though - chips from an.Indian takeaway or something).
thrown into eyes of your enemies
for practical reasons
it doesn't stretch it out. you're eating exactly the same amount of cheese. there are no other factors to take into consideration.
i'll say it anyway;
still wouldn't do it though, way to ruin elevenses.
Grated cheese and pickle is superior to sliced cheese and pickle in a sandwich. That is actually the truth, as the pickle intermigles lovingly with the cheese. Also, if making a cheese savoury with grated cheese, onion and mayo mixed up which is entirely delicious.
Also, stirred into scrambled egg to make cheesy scrambled egg. Slices are too chunky.
(i love slices of cheese too)
you don't get sliced cheese falling off a cracker
you want to have light crisp crunch to your chips, not gooey rubbery melted cheese.
in sandwiches.. is nice - larger surface area = more flavour
on cheese on toast.. is nice - melts better
That's what you're doing here.
if so, i'm up for it.
It was the 80's. He worked in a building society. This bloke had pretentious ideas above his station like all young professionals in those days...
Anyway, just when my old man thought everything had gone rather well, said colleague brought out the after-dinner cheeseboard. Would've been acceptable, he said, had it not had triangles of Dairylea on it.
but I have never grated it
If your cheese is even gratable at all, it has no place there
live a little.
or nachos (nachos)
possibly even compulsory
a friend.....told me........
Screw you, Smee.
eaten straight from a pre-grated pack while walking round toen
If you don;t believe me, take a block of cheddar, grate it, and put the grated cheese in a bag, close/ seal it and put in the fridge. Come back 20 mins later and it will be all stuck together. Yet,m that pre-grated stuff you see in tesco NEVER sticks together. It's like magic.
like, poke a hole in it, or use swiss cheese and put a stick in it and spin the stick to create heat?
that would eat mozzarella it was possible to grate. Get out of my thread.
just stand at the front with a bag of grated cheese, staring at the band.
and because of the oil/fat it burns well
of Come Dine With Me and you serve pizza with grated cheese on, I'd knock a good 2 or 3 points off my score
Read the thread woman!
and some motor skills in your hands. We can't be held responsible for your deficiencies.
She's something to do
has been made with grated cheese...
you dont just whack a fucking block on do you?
For me the joy of eating a cheese sandwich is totally dependent on the texture of a nice chunk of cheese with a big flavoursome hit of cheesiness. Grated - bad texture, diminished taste. Grated cheese sandwiches are to made with sliced white bread and served to fussy 7 year olds.
Don't know what a cheese savoury is.
Re egg, I wouldn't do it, but I can see the attraction and if we're talking purely grated vs non-grated then there's no argument.
Tell me now.
Though I do like the idea of just sticking a block of Cathedral City in the middle and seeing what happens
unacceptable: as a weapon / bedding for small pets / as chalk before a clean and jerk
I think there's something seriously wrong with me
but you're saying that on a pizz uyou wouldnt have grated cheese... what about takeaway pizzas? almost exclusively grated cheese..
All the cheese. Grated or not.
would be disgusting
that don't use grated, so I normally use them.
The ones that use grated also tend to be really doughy, which is even more of a reason to avoid them, but I probably shouldn't get onto that...
This man is quite mad
I wouldn't make it myself but it's totally fine.
Far more pleasant way to eat cheddar sandwiches in particular.
I hate having slices, too dense for a sandwich.
I'd also use grated if I was making someone cheese on toast, melts faster.
Obviously I wouldn't be making it for myself as cheese on toast is bowfing.
It was on QI. Seriously.
Guess what I had for lunch today? Grated cheese and mango chutney. Suck it up non-grating bitches.
Sure you can experiment outwith, but them is the basics.
Looks a bit like coleslaw.
Excuse while I go and unfollow Stephen Fry on twitter
grate it, then eat it all up before you get chance to put it with anything
I'm off to bounce the jewish thread.
I really want a cheese and cucumber sandwich.
sliced cheddar in a sarnie/ ploughmans
to eat cheese that is not grated.
in a pub
with a pint
you don't need THAT much cheese in a sandwich and often eating sliced cheese that isn't wafer thin in a sarnie leads to me feeling bloated. Grated cheese is acceptable if it's going to be mixed into something such as Onion and Mayo.
I KNOW ALL
can't believe the amount of people who think grating cheese = making more cheese.
grated cheese has mroe surface area - that sort of axplains it
makes a cheese sarie taste better
warm cheese that's slightly sweaty with a good creamy texture
slightly salty taste
you people astound me on a daily basis. 130 odd replies on grated cheese?
Theo, shut this thread down, it was irresponsible of me to make it in the first place
just one of the many dangerous techniques i've included in my every day life.
that crumbly fucker HATES to be grated. doesn't cooperate at all.
before you adopted your current 'miserable shit' persona?
<remembers who your brother is>
as you were.
(not the shit bit though x)
i don't mean slightly salty taste, i was getting carried away
i meant cheese that has bite. good strong cheese
that you can feel on the roof of your mouth
I like it
i reserve my cheshire eating for sliced or chopped feasts. this is one of those chilli cheese
It was a natural double tonner
They're moody little cunts as it is, mate. Wouldn't do anything to wind them up even more.
Yeah, cheese in tomato (and other) soup is great, never done it with grated but I imagine it's alright (if inferior), I'm gonna 'low this.
Always acceptable when it is melted (special mention: on shepherds pie - awesome)
Rarely acceptable when not melted: sandwiches, on crackers
Thats bags of cheese thats already been grated. Not cheese that was once grated.
exception to the rule
it's actually the preferable way as get more flavour from the cheese. Something to with more surface area or something, one of the science nerds can explain.
You shouldn't knock it until you try it.
(Right I'm off back to the gay Uganda thread with exactly that same advice)
You'll never look back.
and I have a (very) tiny reputation for competence in that area. Then the other day I ran out of cheese. Turns out, I don't really like eggs. :'(
It's marketed as Chester cheese in Germany, incidentally, which is probably the most pointless piece of trivia I'll ever post on here.
cheeses it unacceptable to grate:
Everyone wears those jeans with elasticated cuffs
a blend of cheddar, red leicester & farmhouse lancashire
for toppings to a jacket potato is pretty hard to beat
I like the simplicity, but I'm finding the cheese on toast thing a sticking point.
