Once you get over the idea of eating mould, it isn't too bad. I can't say it's going to be a regular thing in my fridge, but at least now I'm not adverse to eating it if it's on a cheese tray or in a recipe like I was before.
What, you don't like bleu cheese dressing?

OK, it does have a taste that takes some learning. But then, so do most good wines.

Same here! There are very few flavors that make my mouth water like blue cheese... now that I've read this thread I might have to find something to eat some dressing with

Give me a wedge of blue cheese and a stick of pepperoni and I'm a happy camper.

I LOVE bleu cheese I dip bread, celery, carrots, pizza, breadsticks, wings, etc in it. My parents used to order a side of bleu cheese dressing when we'd go to this restaurant, just to dip the crusty italian bread in it.

Rob is severely disturbed by my love of bleu cheese dressing and as a topping or mixed crumbles in a dip.

Blue cheese, mold, delicious!
On the mold note, I seriously adore mushrooms, all edible types I will eat, raw, cooked, stuffed, sautéed, and steamed. We always have portabellas and normal white mushrooms in the fridge and on special occasions or big sales we will get crimini and oyster, shitake, and others. There is a mushroom festival every year we have to drive quite a ways to get there, but we love it and get such good deals we stock up.
I bet there are cheese festivals too!

I can't eat blue cheese straight up, yuck! To me it tastes like vomit all on it's own, far to sharp, I am a fan of mild chese.
I do however like it with some things. As mentioned in another post, wings, for me they must be dripping in the red hot and equally dripping in blue cheese dressing, the stinker and sharper and chunkier the better. Messy and smelly, it's all good! The flavor just goes togethor!
Waldorf salad, does anyone make that anymore? Chicken, walnuts, grapes, apples, celelry all mixed with mayo? Top that off with some blue cheese crumbles, it works so well to counter all that sweetness from the fruit. it's an awsome summer salad!

My favorite salad dressing is Blue Cheese, I just love it. A lot of restaurants tho do not make it all that well. The best I have eaten is Marie's Blue Cheese dressing in a jar at Shoprite where I do my grocery shopping. It is delish.

For some reason this cheese doesn't affect me adversely (I'm lactose intolerant), maybe because it's an aged cheese.

All I know is that I can't get enough of this stuff!!

Who knew that one day I'd say that I like eating mould!
You know what is interesting? I have learned from my food microbiology class that cheese does not cause the lactose intolerance symptoms because the lactose has already been broken down in the fermentation process by the bacteria lactobacillus. One of my assignments last semester was the fermentation of blue cheese. You could say that after I finished, I wanted to go and eat some!!!

Really Kellye? You just made my day!
Of course, I never let my lactose intolerance get in the way eating cheese, but that is good to know.

I have to disagree with you. Cheese slices, cheddar, mozzarella, cream cheese, cottage cheese and some others.....all will have me doubled over in horrific stomach cramps and running to the bathroom with explosive diarrhea.

Real Feta made from goat's milk doesn't do that. Neither does Blue Chesse for some reason.

Then you may have an allergy to dairy. It is a common misconception that cheese causes lactose intolerance when it itself has low quantities. Believe me, I study microbiology and have learned this. Cheese is one of the few foods I can enjoy in the dairy category.

Sorry, I still disagree with you. I know my symptoms. They are exactly the same when I have regular milk instead of lactaid milk.

I can tolerate some low fat yogurt, usually about 1/2 cup without it affecting me, any more and I'm living in the bathroom. Regular dairy milk, sour cream, and most cheeses, send me into horrid abdominal cramping and diarrhea. That's no allergy. It's an intolerance. If I don't each cheese, I'm fine...I eat it and I'm crampy. If I don't drink milk I'm fine. If I drink lactaid milk I'm fine. If I drink regular cows milk I'm crampy, bloated and having diarrhea.

And the link you provided says:

Cheese

* Cheese may be better tolerated than milk due to a lower lactose content.
* Cheese is also well-tolerated because during the cheese-making process, most of the whey is removed (and the lactose with it). In mature, ripened cheese, lactose disappears entirely within three to four weeks.
* Specific kinds of cheese which you can reasonably expect to tolerate fairly well include cheddar, Colby, Swiss, Parmesan and cottage cheese.


It isn't guaranteed.

I'm not going to argue this fact with you. I know how my body reacts to dairy and I adjust my diet accordingly.

I never tasted blue cheese before until I had a burger with blue cheese on top. That was the best tasting burger, ever!!

Love blue cheese! DH will make me burgers with mushrooms and blue cheese. And I have an awesome recipe for pork chops with a blue cheese sauce. Yum!

I love Magtag the most, followed by a good gorgonzola. I would never eat blue cheese until my best friend talked me into it one time. Wow, just wow. Good stuff.
