Make Cheese from Yogurt

8 Feb

I love mild, soft cheeses.  Who doesn’t, amirite?  Lately I’ve been experimenting with making a marinated goat cheese-like snack from Greek yogurt.  It’s super easy and delicious!

Marinated Cheese Balls

  • 17 oz greek yogurt (I like Fage brand)
  • chopped fresh herbs of your choice
  • 3 bulbs garlic, thinly sliced
  • sea salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • splash truffle oil

Place cheese cloth or fine mesh strainer over a bowl and let yogurt strain for thee days in the refrigerator.  After three days, form yogurt into golf-ball sized balls, squeezing out extra liquid as you form cheese balls.  Place in a large jar with herbs, garlic, salt & pepper.  Cover with olive oil, add a splash of truffle oil and let sit for at least 24 hours before serving (can marinate up to three days). Eat on bread or crackers with antipasto.

    Wow, Dale!! This sounds delicious!

    I’m in a space of feeling loved & spoiled & inspired myself too today. We went to the monthly Cajun / annual Mardi Gras dance at the Focal Point traditional arts center in Maplewood on Wednesday night. It had great live music provided by Gumbohead and a fun mixer crowd!!! Lots of beads, festive wear, king cakes, etc.

    Last night we got to take advantage of the opportunity to indulge in a Shellfish Lovers’ Valentines couples cooking class & dinner at the Kitchen Conservatory! What a peak experience!!

    Tonight we will be hosted through the debut of the Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner plot that our social committee at church has launched; we & 4 others will be hosted by a family of 4, tonight at 6pm. This is an unusual & trippy- fun blend of activities for our week!! It may be making it a little TOO painless for me to be between jobs right now!!! I won’t really worry about THAT, & I am formulating a plan to start pursuing some of the thoughts that I’m entertaining, by setting up informational interviews, etc. One step at a time in weighing / pursuing / creating opportunities for jobs and/or vocational fulfillment going forward.

    Talk to you soon! We love you both MUCH! Lois
