Description

This scrumptious combination is a late evening summer meal in our house, with a nice glass of white wine. But you can have it for lunch, serve it as an appetizer, or just make it because you can’t stand not to.

Ingredients

  • 10 ounces, weight Queso Blanco Cheese
  • 2 whole Tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Italian Spices

Preparation

Slice the queso blanco and the tomatoes, set the tomatoes aside. My queso is sliced about 1/4 inch thick, but go thinner if you’d like, or go thicker. I buy my brick of cheese in 10 ounces, but if you find it in 12 ounces or more, just reserve some of it, or, in this house, it would just get added to the pan.

Heat half the oil and all the butter in a pan over medium heat. When it’s hot, lay in the queso blanco slices. Fry for a couple of minutes on each side, or however long is needed to nicely brown the cheese. I suggest having your heat a bit toward the medium high range and frying up the cheese quickly as the cheese will lose its shape the longer it stays on the heat.

Layer the fried cheese and the sliced tomatoes onto a plate and drizzle over the rest of the extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle the Italian spices over the top.

Enjoy!

Definitely yummy especially with fresh tomatoes! We used Queso Fresco since it’s what our store had and I knew we already like it.
