Beware of parmesan

A couple of recent updates for some Season 5 recipes. Not a ton to say about each, hence why they didn’t warrant their own posts.

Last week I made some Leftover Baked Potato Soup for dinner.

I found it to be quite tasty, but I used a particular brand of parmesan cheese high in butyric acid which some folks react harshly too, causing Gemma to be physically unable to eat it. So, this might be one to try again some other time.

Then last night I made Eggplant Steaks as a side dish for grilled burgers.

Again, these were quite tasty, but even though I used a different brand of parmesan for the topping, Gemma found them hard to eat. Needless to say, the ratings for these two recipes are just my own. Next time I need to make sure to remember that when I make stuff with cooked parmesan that I should do some with and some without!

  • Ease: 3/5
  • Used about 3 pounds of potatoes for this

Eggplant Steaks

  • Ease: 3/5
  • Next time I need to put foil down on the sheet pan to catch drippings so they don't burn on the bottom of the pan
