Amish Egg Cheese

Linda Kauppinen


Essentially, it's a ball of eggs and milk that have been cooked until the proteins separate into curds and the liquid separates into whey. The technique for making Egg Cheese is similar to making farmers cheese. Egg Cheese can be made savory with salt and sometimes pepper or sweetened with sugar.
