Italian Baccala

 

Melted Basket cheese with chive

 

The cheese that in the States is called basket cheese is similar to many Italian cheeses you find all over the country, that are practically the same but have a lot of different names like canestrello marzolino and so on, depending from the different regions.
So I prepared the basket cheese like with this fresh cheeses back in Italy. It is rapid and very tasty.
What you need is some oil the basket cheese and chives, fresh or dry.
Oil the pan than melt the cheese cut in slices at medium heat with chives on top. To make it melt faster cover the pan with a lid. Ready in five minutes and delicious. Adjust with salt only at the end, as the cheese might be already salty enough.
A delicious appetizer
