Freezer Fun

If you tried making the Chicken Cordon Bleu and have leftover cheese, note that the cheese can be frozen if you will not be using it up right away.  Just divide your cheese into the portion sizes that you would like and pack in freezer bags.  Do make sure that you get all the air out and make sure that your cheese is wrapped well.  This will prevent your cheese from drying out.  When you are ready to use it, just unthaw overnight in your refrigerator (leave in wrapping and freezer bag).

Please note that blue cheese can be frozen but it can be crumbly once it is thawed.  Also cottage cheese is one of the cheeses that cannot be frozen unless it is used in an already made up dish such as cheesecake. Cream cheese can be frozen for about 6 weeks but then has a tendency to get hard and yellow after that time period.  Again if it is used in an already made up dish, it can be frozen for a longer time.  Grated cheese can actually be used straight from the freezer if so desired.
