So the sous chef and I are very much so looking forward to vacation in Mexico, and have been diligently working on our beach bodies. But ‘beach bodies’ is really open to interpretation, right? And if our diet has consisted solely of cheese-filled nuggets, and our goal is to wear moo moos on the beach, I’d say we pretty much nailed it.
But let’s get straight to the point: this is a perfect appetizer for the big game next Sunday. With a crunchy outside, and a warm, cheesy center full of smoked ham, this crowd pleaser will not disappoint.
Did I mention it’s served with a mustard-cheese sauce? So, so, good. Now, full-disclosure, one question remains: do delicious cheese-filled fritters full of melted goodness require a yummy cheese sauce, too? The jury is out, and we’re a house divided. The sous chef insists it’s overboard, and these little treasures are magnificent on their own.
BUT, my philosophy on life dictates that there is no such thing as sauce period. And hey, this is no exception. You say overboard, I say bring it on. Cheese-on-cheese-on-cheese is what my dreams are made of. And a cheese sauce? This doesn’t even need a justification.
So moving right along, I think it’s safe to say this dispute is settled.
