Made some smoked salmon patties. So bad tasting when warm, I had to throw them out, Broke my heart,
I just "KNEW" they would be good. They weren't!
Then a couple months later made some homemade Mac & Cheese, using smoked cheddar. Again, a BIG disappointment!
Looked forward to it, and just "KNEW", it would be good. It wasn't! Threw out 2 quarts of Mac and cheese.
In both cases I thought it would be good.
But it was terrible, in spite of how hard I tried to convince myself that it was good. I just couldn't continue eating it.
Adding smoked meat to any dish has never been a problem. It works real well.
But using fish and cheese seems to be different.
However, the smoked cheese will make a fantastic hot cheese sandwiches. Go fiqure!
So..... My question is this:
Which smoked foods should I not use in hot dishes, or use in small amounts?
