Cheesy Oats

Experiment 1: Chicken stock, basil, and Safeway Primo Taglio Provolone. This is a block cheese, not a shredded topping. I diced it and put it on right after I put on the potato flakes.

Result: good. The provolone melts down into a stringy mass of connective goo, which said strings hang off your spoon while you eat. I probably could have put on more basil, but there was just enough to make you aware that there was something else there. As RR say, “it makes you go ..hmmmm.”

Experiment 2: Beef stock, glug of red wine, and Safeway Primo Taglio Provolone. I decided to finish up the cheese, so it turned out to be more like a third of a cup…or more.

Result: Oat fondue. Too much cheese. Too much red wine, also. I am coming to the conclusion that red wine has to be handled like an herb — used in tablespoon measurements, not fractions of a cup.
