I know I am silly, but free cheese makes me so very happy. I have been telling everyone I know how to get Cheese free at Albertsons this week. The first question they always ask is “can you freeze it?”. Well I am not a cheese expert, but I have been freezing cheese for as long as I can remember.
I DO NOT freeze brick cheese, because it will become very crumbly once you thaw it. You can still eat it, but it just looks weird….so I choose not to freeze it.
But I DO freeze grated cheese. It will freeze really well, and once it thaw’s, it looks and tastes the same. If it starts to form ice on the inside from temperature variation (may happen if your freezer door is left open or if it gets unplugged) it can make the cheese a little “sticky” once it thaws, so keep an eye out for that. But for the most part I have always had great luck.
How about you, do you freeze it?
