Baked Cheese with Fresh Herbs

baked cheese!!! as the barefoot contessa would say ” how easy is that?” seriously. how easy is this? it’s pretty damn easy. i mean, how come i never thought of this before?

i love that i post about melted cheese on a monday morning, just in time to highjack the healthy grocery shopping list i made last night. i will try and save the brick of fontina that currently resides in my fridge for company!

but that is exactly what this dish is perfect for. got a brick of cheese on hand? pop it in a cast iron skillet with herbs and salt and pepper and you will be named martha of the year by your guests!

i used jarslberg for this one, but i think fontina would be great or any other good melting cheese like gruyere, emmentaler, cheddar, asiago, gouda, or blue. the jarlsberg got a bit tough once it cooled, but it was still yummy!

chop up your cheese into cubes. you can shred it as well if you are looking for a small arm workout .

roughly chop up 2-3 cloves of garlic and throw in the skillet with the cheese.

sprinkle on lots of fresh chopped herbs. i used basil, mint, rosemary, dill and dried oregano. honestly, any combo could be good here! i was worried about the mix of the herbs, but it was really good. the mint was actually great! thyme, of course, should be in there, but i didn’t have it on hand.

drizzle with lots of olive oil.

sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake at 350 until melted!

serve with bread.

reap the rewards!
