Marco PolOats

Another impulse buy (whenever MJ goes off on an AKC trip I go wild, see last week’s entry). This time it’s Beecher’s Marco Polo cheese. It’s a standard mild cheese, with lots of ground pepper. Named by the marketing department for Marco Polo, who brought pepper back from China. Funny, I thought it was from India and was known well before that. It’s an OK tasting cheese that appeals mostly to pepper lovers. Kindof like jalapeno cheese.

3/4 cup water, 1/4 cup red wine, 1/3 cup long cook oatmeal. At the 12min point I chunked up slightly less than 1/4 cup of the cheese and put it in to melt. Two tsp potato flakes.

Result: Not bad. If I liked pepper better, I’d like this better. The cheese was fully melted and was more of a thickener. Had to add a couple more teaspoons of potatoes.
