This is nice, but I guess what I meant was like hard cheese that you would use to cook with, baked in the oven with maybe herbs. I know everyone has heard of baked cheese. So I meant oven baked parmesan. I’m not much of a cook and so I don’t want to give false instructions, like, cut off a hunk of firm but soft (both) parmesan from a wedge and make sure there’s no rind on it and cut it into usable chunks, like about an inch, even 2 inch, squares or 1 x 2 inch rectangles. Then line a cookie sheet with foil and place the parmesan squares or rectangles on the sheet. Have the oven warm at about 375 or 400 and no more and put the squares in the oven. Let them roast up to one side till kind of squeegy looking and then flip them over one by one with a fork trying not to burn your fingers for using it as a utensil. Then put the cookie sheet back in the oven and let the cheese cook to the other side until it seems browned and almost like it bubbles. If you smell roasting cheese it’s about to burn, so it should never cook that long.

See, these aren’t good instructions. And also you can make an herb bouquet or other seasonings and add garlic oils to it and have baked seasoned parmesan or else use asiago or romano. Just, that consistency of cheese. And it’s a snack. For a new way to eat cheese with your favorite crackers and fruit drink. Or maybe that’s just me and everyone else with think that’s gross. Ya, I eat too much hard cheese and tomato sauce anyway. Or at least I know I have.

So I need to find that actual kind of recipe and obviously you can parmesan anything — but I can’t find it. I will be looking out for it.
