Can you eat cheese?

By Ange's Table

I want to start today’s post by saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sister.  Thank you for believing in me, and supporting me.  I don’t say it enough.  I love you, I would never want any other sister in the world.

And now for food—

Are you 100% dairy free?  I can say that I am not.  There are days that I do have cheese.  I try to limit it.  I also know that there are certain cheeses that I can eat safely, and others that I cannot.

One cheese that I know is okay for me is Swiss Cheeses.  The lacy kind, the aged kind, sliced or in a brick.  The bacteria used to create Swiss cheese, is the same as the pro-biotic that I take every day.  I also take a gastric enzyme with my meal to help me digest my food better.

We had company for brunch, and I made sausages, bacon and a huge pan of scrambled eggs with cheese.  Now even though I put cheese on the eggs, I still use dairy free milk when I whisk them up.  I cannot have cow milk.  No one knew it was oat milk in the scramble.  On this day, I went all out.  Thank you @TraderJoes for making bagels that won’t kill me.

Whisk your milk, salt, and eggs
I brush on the bacon fat for even distribution
Make sure your cast iron is well seasoned to cook eggs
I turn off the heat when the tops of the eggs look slightly wet
I put the cheese on, then cover it with the heat off.
I love a squeeze of honey on my breakfast sausage, sweet and savory.

Egg Scramble

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup oat milk
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 pieces sliced Lacey Swiss
  • bacon fat to grease pan

Heat pan on medium, add in fat. 

While pan is heating, whisk eggs in large bowl with milk and salt.

Once pan is hot, gently pour in egg mixture. 

Stir frequently, making sure to get the bottom and sides of pan.  Once the eggs look slightly wet on top, turn off heat and cover.  If adding cheese, place slices now.

Let sit covered for 2-3 minutes.
