Your favorite cheese

What's your favorite cheese? "Just bite off a hunk and enjoy" cheese, not "cooking with" cheese?

I usually am a toss up between colby and munster, but I really think it's ultimately going to be swiss.

I'm a great fan of Brie. I love it at room temperature with some mild crackers.

Beyond just eating out of the fridge, I love it baked with brown sugar and walnuts. Yum.

Buck and I used to go to a wonderful restaurant called the Yellow Brick Bank in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. They had a fabulous appetizer of Brie and walnuts that knocked our socks off.

Real French munster is a treat. It's worlds different from the supermarket stuff. I love it with a baguette and some sausage.

Bite off a hunk and eat? I'm a big fan of pepper jack.
In general? Marscapone, just because there are a trillion things I do with it.

Prima donna - a type of Gouda, otherwise a nice piece of Edam is delightful. Cheddar is extremely hard to beat. If I can eat it with something, like a strawberry, Brie.

But then Baby Bel, Laughing Cow (with an apple) and Kraft singles (with either grapes or cherry tomatoes) will always have a place in my heart come snack time.
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

I love so many cheeses, and i will occasionally remove a chunk and munch it from almost any cheese, including veined cheeses, and parmesano regiano, asiago, and romano pecorino. But my all-time favorite is Balderson Heritage Cheedar, aged 5 years. You can't eat a bunch of it as it is very strong, but then again, it only takes a couple of small bites to satisfy.

If I want just ahunk of cheese to munch on, then colby is my favorite snackin' cheese, with a stick of pepperoni along side. Yum.

Oh, and if you do a search, you will find a similar thread with a host of responses.

I am with Bilb on the gouda. I also like some of the soft ripe cheeses.

Sharp cheddar. I always have some, so it must be my favorite.
And yes, I have been known to break off a chunk to eat without grabbing for anything else....
