We love stocking unusual cheeses for you to indulge in here at Shisler’s Cheese House! Today we are going to tell you everything that you need to know about one of our more unusual offerings: Bermuda Onion Cheese.
What is Bermuda Onion Cheese?
A delicious cheese with savory onion tones from the sweet Bermuda Onion. These onions do not have the harsh, pungent flavor of other onions and are instead sweet and delicious. Here they are incorporated into a classic Cheddar-style cheese that is slightly firm and creamy.
Our is an Amish Bermuda Onion Cheese, made with the highest quality farm fresh milk that is not subjected to artificial hormones. We’re passionate about stocking only the best quality here.
How should I eat it?
This cheese is great with pickles or chutney. Try it in a sandwich or add it to your cheeseboard for an interesting flavor combination. It has a fantastic color from the annatto seed, so it’s excellent for adding variety to a cheeseboard. After all, we eat with the eyes as well as the mouth so it is worth thinking about your presentation! A variety of colors will also help your guests to distinguish between the different cheeses on your plate and go back for more of their favorites.
Bermuda Onion Cheese could also be an excellent addition to a fondue if you want to make it extra flavorful. Try combining it with Swiss cheese or Gruyere and dipping in crudites, crusty bread or smoked meats.
Try it melted onto toast with a bowl of soup or in a grilled cheese. This is another great place to combine it with other cheeses that offer amazing melted textures. Why not try it with mozzarella? We also love it grated over dishes such as pasta or potatoes. A little goes a long way here to combine flavors naturally.
For the summer season, this works well on burgers or even grated into salads. This cheese really is very diverse and will keep your guests intrigued as to how you manage to pack such great taste into your cooking.
What should I drink with it?
If you like red wine, then a Beaujolais or Pinot Noir would be a good choice with the sweetness of the onions. For white wine lovers, we recommend trying a Viognier or Gewürztraminer for the same effect. This would even go nicely with a good beer.
This is certainly a uniquely flavored cheese. If you want to try it for yourself, why not pop into the store soon? We would be happy to help you sample it along with any of our other excellent flavored cheeses. If you like onion cheese, then you might also like our Garlic Cheddar or Green Onion Cheese. These also offer great flavor for salads as we head into summer. Check out our post on Flavored Cheeses for more ideas.
