Grilled Cheese

This is by far the most impressive cultural dish in Buenos Aires- Grilled Cheese, also called Provoleta Cheese. As an appetizer, it is baked plain or dressed with different herby variations. This dish is customarily eaten before a barbeque.

Easy to prepare and dangerously easier to stuff the whole thing into one’s mouth; these glorious cylinder shaped, semi-hard cheeses are around 2 cm, and comes in packets of two-all ranging from 20~30 pesos ($5~8).

Stick one portion of the cheese into an oven proof pan, or a custom-made Provoleta cheese iron skillet and throw it into a heated oven. Wait with anticipation for 20 minutes, or until cheese has melted-bubbly and slightly browned. Serve warm because once it gets cold, the cheese gets harder and chewier.

*I also love to smother the melted chewy goodness onto a toasted piece of bread. 🙂
