I looked all over and once again, Ishbel is right. There is no cheese in traditional British fry up's (full English breakfast) that I could find - but is sure does look good!

Can't think of a way to fry cheese except for the Greek saganaki - breaded first, then quickly fried, and doused with a splash of lemon juice.

Would that suit you? Where's pdswife and Paul? They should know about saganaki/

I've heard of fried cheese - we are all familiar with Fried Cheese Sticks. And there is a Mexican cheese - can't remember the exact name right now but it translates into Frying Cheese. I just can't figure out how you would fry something with the consistency of cottage cheese!

BTW, I know Nike as a manufacturer of athletic shoes/equipment. A 240ZX sounds like a Nissan car model to me. What do Nike & 240ZX have to do with a washing machine? I feel like my chain is being yanked!
I'm all about the food!

I would have thought that the cheese would be melted over the other fried foods, not fried in its own right. Also, if it were dipped in flour, egg-wash, and flour again, then in egg-wash again, and finally in bread-crumbs, I bet it would deep-fry well enough, like deep-fried mozarella sticks.

SAGANAKI 1/2 lb. Kasseri or Kefalotiri cheese
1 tbsp. butter, melted
2 tbsp. brandy
1/2 lemon
assorted crackers and pita bread

Cut cheese into 3 wedges; place in a shallow heatproof serving dish. Brush cheese with butter. Broil 5-6 minutes, until cheese is light brown and bubbly. Heat brandy until warm, pour over cheese. Ignite immediately. Squeeze lemon over cheese. Slice and serve with bread or crackers. Mozzarella cheese may be substituted. 6 servings.

I've had this before but.. never cooked it myself.
Instead of brandy the cheese was covered with Ozo and then lit on fire. OH YUMMMMMY!!!!

Cheese in a fry-up? Just out of curiosity,(I would try anything really) when do you put in the cheese, on the bacon? sausages? mushrooms? eggs?

the only logical thing that can be assumed, if cottage cheese was suggested, was that it is served as a cold side dish.
i've had lots of irish brekkies, similar to english ones, and not one had fried cheese, but many included cold sides like yogurt or custard.

My hubby is a brit too Isbel, and he's never had cheese in his fry up. Usually though he does add HP to it. I've made an adapted version to this for him consisting of a fried egg, friend spam or bacon, boiled mushrooms, a tin of tomatoes, and a cuppa :)

Fat Boy Slim is a pretty well known British musical group.
