Mark,

Everything helps with the Mack's thread in trying to determine what kind of cheese they might use.  Did the brick cheese oil off after you reheated with more cheese?  I wonder about the snap back though.  I don't think I ever noticed that with Mack's cheese.

When I am decided about what to try I guess I will try some brick cheese on a Mack's attempt.  It sure can't hurt and sure might be helpful.

Thanks!  ;)

Norma


I never paid attention to if it oiled off--it was paper thin. It did expand when heated.

The snap back wasn't really snapping back but more that it didn't stretch a mile as mozz can do. It may have stretched a little & pulled off instead of stretched a lot.

P.S. I never got ccalled back from Sterling...

No brick cheddar at Redner's so Ann went back to Weis and scored this New Bridge brand.  Actually, it was $6.06 for .71 lbs. so that eased the pain just a little bit.   :)

Instead of the usual Friday night smokey grill pizza, it looks like another Papa Dino's clone attempt is in order.  LOL   ;D

Pete,

Wow, I will be anxious to hear about your results with the brick cheese you and your lovely wife Ann purchased.  Did you taste it yet?   :-D  I didn't have time to check out Weis supermarket near me, but will sometime this weekend.  Lol, about the price of that brick cheese, just to try on a Papa Dino's attempt.

Best of luck!  :chef:

Norma

Edit:  Can you see who produces that brick cheese from the package?  I can see it says New Bridge, but am curious if it says more.

Well, somebody did give me some free flour the other day, Norma.   ;)

No, I didn't taste it yet although I'm itching to.  I guess I will tomorrow sometime when I start in on the pizzas.  The label only says it's distributed by Athens International Foods out of Athens, GA so I'd assume it really comes from Wisconsin and is actually made by one of the main producers of brick out that way.

Thanks for the good wishes!!!  We'll see what happens!!!  LOL   ;D

My friend Bill from Trenton, NJ called me today around lunchtime.  He said he tried the Mandi brick cheese on a pizza for lunch with Great Value tomato sauce doctored up.  He said the Mandi brick did melt nicely when baked on the pizza and did taste very good, but it still wasnít the cheese taste of a Mackís pizza.  I also asked Bill if the brick cheese oiled off at all, or stretched like mozzarella and he said the brick cheese didnít oil off at all and wouldnít stretch when it was hot.

The brick I got oiled off but not as much as the regular cheddar, Norma..  The smell and flavor were dead on, however...

Pete,

I am glad you found the brick cheese that smells like Mack's and even has the flavor of Mack's pizza.   ;D  I wonder why it doesn't oil off as much as regular cheddar.  Did you check the fat amount per serving size?  Do you still have the wrapping the brick cheese came in?

No, I didn't save the label, Norma, but now I know where to get more.   ;)

I'll keep it next time so we can perhaps try to match the New Bridge brand up with the actual manufacturer.   ;D

Pete,

I did try to look up Athens International Foods, Athens, Ga. And also New Bridge brick cheese last evening and I couldnít find anything about either of them. 

Good to hear you will keep the label the next time to see the fat amount of the New Bridge brick cheese and maybe find the actual manufacturer.  :) I have no idea of fat amounts for any brick cheeses.

Their whole lineup looks pretty tasty, Norma.  No mild brick, just a couple aged varieties and something they call "Pizza Cheese"...

I've seen the Limburger locally at one of the independent supermarkets.   ;D

Pete,

I already tried the Pizza Cheese from Nasonville a few days ago, and that wasnít the cheese.  Nasonville does have brick cheese, but I donít know how mild it is.  http://www.nasonvilledairy.com/shop/index.php?route=product/category&path=41  They also have a cheddar that is not listed.  I mentioned that before in this thread.  It is cheddar with Asisago.  If the 1 year old aged white cheddar doesnít work, then I might try the cheddar with Asiago.

I am never going to be trying Limburger on a pizza.  That stuff is too nasty.  :-D

You know what they say about Limburger, Norma, that it smells better coming out than it does going in.   :D

Yeah, anyway...  LOL  Both of Nasonville's brick cheeses appear to be aged from the descriptions on the website so I probably wouldn't try those on a pizza, either.  That "German" brick sounds like the really potent one.

Hey, keep us posted!!!  Since you mentioned Asiago, here's the Wikipedia lowdown on that...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asiago_cheese

I guess the real stuff only comes from the Italian Alps.   ;D

Pete,

I never heard that about Limburger before, but when I tasted it one time that was enough.   :-D


I really donít think the cheese is the cheddar with Asiago either, but will wait and try the 1 year old aged white cheddar.

BOARDWALKER,

I am almost postive that the cheddar is the Nasonville white 1 year old aged cheddar.  Did you look at the boardwalk thread?

Norma, have you tried the Cracker Barrel Aged Reserve? It's a white cheddar that's aged and probably more available to anybody/everybody. It's in a black package. Occasionally supermarkets have the Cracker Barrel line on sale 2 for $5.

Since you're sure you've found your cheese and it's a 1 year aged white cheddar, have you tried any other aged cheddars?

Sorry Norma,

For some reason, i thought that you were mixing the Nasonville with brick cheese.

Mark,

I have tried Cracker Barrel cheddar on the boardwalk thread, but can't recall what kind it was.  I know Cracker Barrel cheddar is readily available to most members.  I really don't think I am going to try other aged cheddars, unless Heagy's at market can age me some cheddar. 

If members want to purchase some Nasonville aged one year old cheddar, I think they will be happy with the results.

No need to apologize. These two threads can get somewhat involved and I even have a hard time remembering about what I posted from awhile ago.  :-D

The Nasonville online store only shows the 1 Year Aged Cheddar in yellow.  Is the white 1 Year Aged Cheddar special order?
