The Best of Comfort Foods: Food for Thought Episode 11

Thanks so much While the grits are simmering, you have a pocket of time to whip up the shrimp. I buy pre-peeled shrimp and chop all my veggies before I start coking. That way, it all comes together pretty quickly This looks sooo good Wendy! I'll have to be trying some of these great Southern Comfort Foods! Can you believe this Texas gal has never once fried chicken at home? To me, that's the ultimate southern comfort food, but it's so messy! I might get kicked out of Texas over this non-frying thing!

Shrimp and grits?!!! I've already been asked when I'm going to make it again I sure could go for some Oregon salmon right about now I had some of the best salmon of my life at Portland City Grill this Summer! I love your city and can't wait for a return visit!!! I have never had shrimp and grits, but you have me craving some. Your dish looks so good, and I can't wait to make it. Grits are pretty standard stuff down here, but I didn't grow up eating them for some reason. I make cheese grits in lieu of mashed potatoes for a side dish quite often Shrimp and grits is one of my favorite dishes!

We have so many restaurants nearby with amazing versions of it, I rarely make it at home. But the tourist season is winding down and the restaurants will be closing soon. These are the best grits I've ever eaten, so I needed to figure out how to make them at home since I don't get to Louisiana all that often! I agree that this is comforting and I too learned that as an adult. I like that he adds Andouille Sausage. I recently made a revised version using Rosemary skewered shrimp and I loved it. Today's guest sounds really great.

Emeril can do no wrong in my book! I can't wait to check out your recipe! I love shrimp and I love grits, but I've never had them together, although I've thought of someday making it. I'm excited to see your post because this is the inspiration I need to finally make it! Looks so good. Once you try it, you'll be hooked! It's fabulous Love this recipe. Love shrimp and grits. Love love love. I come from a South Carolina family and grew up on this dish yet I have never made it at home. I may give this a try this week!

Beautiful photos. I've seen recipes that include mushrooms, tomatoes, etc. Have you had them that way? That dish looks so good, it makes me want to cry. Seriously, it hurts. I know I'll have to make it soon or I'll never get it outta my head!! They are pretty addictive Michael is already angling for me to make them again!

I've never had grits. I know right. I need to try this. Minus the shrimp cuz mini-me is allergic. I'm sure I can sub in something else though. I need to cross grits off my foodie bucket list. Looks super fab. The photo of the cheese tossed in the pan just about did me in. And the bacon is the perfect. Love bacon. These grits are fabulous on their own as a side dish Oh, this is perfect comfort food. Love the cheese in with the grits, and of course bacon helps! I've never had shrimp and grits, however, I love them both so You rock!

Oh, boy, does this look terrific! I never thought I'd like shrimp and grits till today I want some and soon!!!! Oh my! Every picture has me wanting this more and more! It looks amazing!! We don't eat grits here much in CA, I don't know why they look so darn good. Can't wait to see you this weekend. I have never liked grits but I think I might have just found the recipe that might win me over.

As a Northern girl, I have always been courious of grits. This will be the first grits recipe I will try. Looks so good!!!!! If you know of anyone who has this allergic reaction or maybe you yourself struggle to digest melted cheese, feel free to post a comment on the bottom of the page. The same goes if actually have a conclusive answer to why it happens and have stumbled across this page. Either way, hopefully this article will have given you some clues as to why some people, including myself, are allergic to melted cheese. Since writing this article, I have been amazed at how many people have gotten in contact with me.

It turns out there are more people suffering from the problem of melted cheese intolerance than I first thought. As you can see from the comments below lots of people have the same reaction as I do to cooked cheese and many people have other similar problems to various other forms of dairy. It looks as though this is an issue that is now affecting more people than I had thought.

Comments are not for promoting your articles or other sites. My daughter is affected in a similar way, but not always. There are many times that she gets a very itchy nose while she is eating melted cheese. Other times she will get a stomach ache and be in the bathroom for a while. I have a problem with melted cheese casing mild diarrhea within 30 minutes of eating. Cheddar, mozzarella and Monterrey Jack will do it. Pizza, quesadillas or cheese melted in microwave will do it. Feeling of lower GI upset with feeling of insecurity as if diarrhea may happen lasts about 4 hours.

Can eat salad wit few shreds of raw cheese without symptoms. Had casein allergy as per IgG test in May Is worse with ultra filtered milk with high protein. No milk allergy on IgG test. Had to take antibiotics for dental extractions and implants in and About 6 rounds in all. Think that caused milk allergy but no allergy to lactose. No problems with milk or melted cheese for first seven decades of my life except post-nasal drainage. Think antibiotics threw me into allergy state. I realize they are necessary to prevent infection from going to the brain and have a friend who had that happen and almost died from brain tumor that was a cyst of staph infection.

Yes me too. It seems mainly to be cheddar but only when cooked such as melted in an omelette or in cheese sauce. Gives me bad stomach pains then diarrhoea after about an hour. I used to be able to eat pizza, quesadillas, grilled cheese, and so on with no problems. But once I reached my early 20s, it all changed. These days, I just try and avoid it as much as I can. I have come to the same conclusion. In fact, i have tried Gluten free pizza, same problem Like clock work.

Funny thing too, when i have steamed milk like a Latte i get stomach ackes too. Last night my wife made chicken quesadillas with melted cheese, today Ive been trying to narrow down this issue for a long time. I love pizza and even though, like clock work, the following day i have stomach issues, i continue to eat pizza. I believe there is some sort of chemical breakdown heating dairy foods or cheese that causes some people this issue. Have no idea how to fix it. But im paying close attention, because i am no givng up my pizza! Halloumi is a cooked cheese and this problem has only come to light since my move to Cyprus 3 months ago.

In Cyprus halloumi is everywhere.. Thank you for this article. I have a colostomy and have had a few surgeries on my stomach. I've had peoblems digesting various foods. Today I ate a tuna melt panini, forgetting how ill I was last time I ate one. I've spent the afrernoon with a VERY upset stomach so, I decided to look up why paninis mighf have this effect on me.

As pizza can also have a similar affect, although not all pizza, Ive realised that this must be the reason. I like being able to understand it. I'll be avoiding melted cheese from now on! Ive been having an issue with melted cheese ever since im about 4 or 5 years old. My mom would make toast with melted cheese for breakfast and every single time i ate it, it made me extremely nauseous but never to the point that i would throw up and after a little while the nauseating feeling would go away.

I am so elated to hear I am not crazy on this issue! Every time. I am fine with cold dairy, all cold cheese. Mozzarella and goat cheese hot or cold are fine for me. Warm milk, warm cream, and all other warm cheese all give me temporary runs. Happens about an hour after I eat and last only a couple of hours. I have found if I take lactase before I eat something that may have hot cheese or dairy I am fine. Not sure why I can eat cold dairy. Started to happen around the time I turned I too have not been able to find a scientific explanation for this.

Just wondering if there is anybody else with the same problem as me thanks. I have had this all my life, wierdly i can have cooked mozzarella but nothing else. I love cheese, never have a problem with it unless its cooked. Its gotten so had now that i just have to smell it and i am sick, because i know if i eat it i will be really ill. I'm the same! I get extremely sick from pizza, but a cold cheese sandwich is fine. Cheese on toast, fine. Yoghurt, fine. Lebanese cheese shanklish , fine.

The Kitchy Kitchen: New Classics for Living Deliciously

Any bloody cheese is FINE. Except when melted. I put cheese on toast - bloating, gas, sometimes runs, cheese on regular bread - no reaction. I use tuna egg salad made with mayo on toast - bloating, gas, etc, put it on untoasted bread - things are just fine. I used to eat grilled cheese sandwiches all the time with no problems, noticed this problem in my late 30's. I'm the exact same way! I love cheese and dairy, but I can't have melted cheese.

Regular cheese and even queso is fine if it's completely melted into a liquidy cheese, but any sort of stretchy, gooey cheese makes me absolutely sick to my stomach. I had the exact same experience finding out with cheese on pizza. I now only put Feta on my pizzas since the cheese won't melt and it tastes amazing when browned on a pizza.

I have this problem too I'm pretty sure! Get like waves of bowel cramps, feel sickly and lethargic, even slightly feverish I keep forgetting and then have melted cheese on toast, and wake up the next day feeling awful. Thanks for writing this article, very informative. This is regarding my daughter who is now She seems to get sick only at night after eating white cheese and falling asleep and getting hot.

So frustrating and always a surprise. Good luck to all in your journeys! For me, it's specifically cooked cheddar that's the problem. Cooked mozzarella on a pizza is fine, I'm guessing because it's a softer cheese to start off with. With regards the cooked cheddar, I'll get stomach cramps a couple of hours later, and then I'll be off to the loo. I thought i was going crazy. Just recently I've noticed that have been getting really sick after eating homemade cheese sauce or even a grilled panini that always has melted cheese. At first I thought it was just food poisoning but then it kept happening.

I don't vomit but I get excruciating stomach pains. I can eat regular cheese, milk, yogurt and some ice creams but i cannot eat cooked cheese. The chemical theory seems logical. When I do get stomach issues I will make ginger tea. Thinly slice up gingerroot and place it a pot of water, about 3 cups. Let it get to a boil then simmer it for about 10 min. For a stronger tea, take it off heat and let it continue to steep for another 20 min. I will add a tablespoon of honey or agave for sweetness and a little milk.

Your stomach will feel better in 20 min. I'm not alone!! I have the same theory, about the chemical separation. I'm fine with chunks of cheese, I don't drink milk, but I do eat some dairy products and looove cheese! But I just can't eat it when is melted, like in a fondue or a quesadilla. Pizza has to be a lil bit cold or I gag. In my family we call it my cheese disease. I avoid homemade Mac n cheese at all costs. Even the fake velveeta cheese in shells and cheese will tear me up.

Pizza is ok for me. So after eating a cheese disease causing food, severe, immediate diarrhea hits. My entire colon is cleaned out in the most painful bathroom experience one might experience minus murder or childbirth. Very loud gurgling noises can be heard traveling through my left side :. I also have the same problem with hot milk Until I read this article I thought I was going mad.. Update : I bought some vegan cheese and put it in a pizza quite liberally. And I was fine, no side affects at all.

Bad news is though I didn't like the taste. I also can eat uncooked cheese and drink milk or yoghurt. I have had problems with cheese my whole life.

I can remember as far back is 2 years old being in the house and just smelling the melted. Reacting to it giving me dry heaves and vomiting. People don't seem to really get it. It makes it hard. It's like it really isn't taken seriously. One of the things that really bothers me is that people want to see what kind of reaction I would have. I understand their curosity horribley but with that puts me through physically would be devastating to me. Same here, I've had problems with melted cheese, particularly pizza, for years.

I can eat all other dairy no problem. I have found if I have cherry brandy with pizza I can eat a slice and not be too ill. I'm assuming there is something in the enzymes that upsets me and that something in the cherry brandy that helps digest it, my mum has similar problems but she is lactose intolerant, she swears sherry helps with her! I also can eat regular cheese but nit melted ut causes severe bloating and pain. I do have trouble with a few other dairy products such as milk however none cause the pain that melted cheese does! Oh how i miss pizza!!

He has just been sick a few hours after having pizza and 4 days ago he was sick a few hours after having a cheese toastie. He doesn't have a high temperature and shows no other signs of being unwell. This is a very sudden change as 'Friday Night Pizza Night' has been a staple of our family routine for years and he has cheese toasties fairly regularly too. Macaroni cheese is another regular family favourite which has never caused him any problems before but i am now going to be nervous the next time we have that! I plan to take him to the GP to request allergy testing and hope I will be taken seriously.

In the mean time I shall be following this thread with interest. At last someone else with exactly the same problem as me apart from that it doesn't make me sick but I just get a bad stomach the next day. I'm the same I can eat all other dairy products just not cooked cheese. I can eat cooked halloumi and cheese slices plastic cheese as I call it. I don't eat any cheese now as my brain has me me not to. I haven't tried cooked vegan cheese as yet.

I have only had this problem for about 8 years since my mid 40s. I have a similar issue although it only seems to be with certain cheeses. I had a fondue recently with no problems strangely but very ill with a raclette last year, and this weekend with cooked Munster cheese. So frustrating. While I have never been able to cope with deep fried food, it has got worse and the cheese thing started when some of my colon was removed. Apparently different parts of our colon digest different elements I have been dealing with a melted cheese allergy for decades now- since I was a kid.

Whenever I eat it, I get extremely bloated and sometimes nauseous. Uncooked cheese, no problem at all. All other dairy And until just now - I thought I was alone! For years I have been wondering why I feel so sick after eating melted cheese, for example cheese omelettes, macaroni cheese etc etc but fine with hard cheese and dairy products, now I know, I am glad that I now have an answer and am not alone in suffering, motto of this little story stay away from cooked cheese.

This problem for me has only started in the past year I am I get terrible cramps and diarrhea after eating any sort of melted cheese but yet I can eat normal cheese to my hearts content. Glad to know this is a thing! My son gets sick after melted cheese, but is fine with cheese not melted. We had him tested as he comes up as lactose intolerant but it doesnt show in any other form. Thank you writing the article. I have the same problem, especially if i eat something with melted cheese on empty stomach.

This is the first time I found out there are other people with the same problem. I have also the same problem with digestion of fructose. And I also have celiac. Oh well I have noticed a trend with my feeling sick after eating melted cheese, and today ate a homemade pizza with melted cheese and immediately got severe stomach cramping and bloating. I thought I was the only one, as I have never heard someone else mention this type of thing before so I searched online to see and came across this.

Thanks for sharing! For the past two years i have experienced intermittent diarrhoea and sickness, and have had great difficulty in identifying the culprit. It now appears I have developed some kind of intolerance to melted cheese, also, which I never believed could be the issue because I can eat regular non-melted cheese without problems.

I'm not sure why I seem to have developed this problem later in life I am 54 but it's interesting to know I'm not alone in what, in isolation, appears to be a rather bizarre situation. Thank you for sharing your story. For me it was even weirder!! I do eat cheese and melted cheese and always been fine. But all the sudden one day i have added some extra mature cheese on pasta which melted. I have got an allergic reaction but it was immediate after eating!

It did not affect my stomach but all my body became ready , really hot, itchy and burning. My hands and feet started to swell! It lasted for lets say half an hour than all desappeared! The day before i had the same things to eat just the cheese was raw. So found it quite weird this sudden allergy reaction!! I have a similar issue, within an hour of consuming even a small slice of pizza or some pasta, I get a horrible stomach ache and I am surely not lactose intolerant cause I drink milk, yoghurt etc.

If this is really a thing, I guess I too have this weird issue. You can test the lactose intolerance theory by buying lactase pills and taking them before consumption of the melted cheese. Not only does that work for me, it proves the theory. I cannot eat melted cheese especially Macaroni cheese or any cheese sauces. An hour after I get stomach cramps and diarrhoea.

Not pleasant. I now stay away from all cheese hard or soft. So pleased with this report. Thought I was just weird! I have the same problem! I was in tears last night after eating pizza My stomach Pain was horrible. I also have the same problem of getting sick after eating pizza and grilled cheese. I also have a similar problem milder version when i drink a warm milk and latte. It gives me diarrhea and hurts my stomach but it does not make me vomit. My aunt has a similar condition with melted butter.

Diarrhea, an Upset Stomach, or Vomiting after Eating Cooked Cheese?

Regular butter, no problem, but If she eats clarified butter, she gets really sick. I have the same, and like Sara, differing levels. I can eat a gluten free lasagna with a just little melted cheese and only be a bit gassy - but if I were to have a standard lasagna with the same small amount of melted cheese I would be in agony. I only developed this after I turned 40 and developed erosive duodenitis so a gut problem anyway and again, can munch my way through cheeses on a cheeseboard, but as soon as heat is applied, it is a no no. I have the same issue with melted cheese with certain foods but any other dairy no issues including non melted cheese.

Within the hour I get terrible cramps which sometimes feels like labor pain and explosive bowels. I have found ways to manage such as OTC lactose pill before I eat it or add lettuce to my enchilada. I have mentioned this to my Doctor and friends and they think I am nuts.

I too wish there was an explanation. Thank you for spreading light on this topic! I avoid completely such kind of food e. It's not so hard after all. Hi, I found this article when I searched for why does melted cheese make me sick and regular cheese does not. I'm so glad I'm not alone. My husband thinks it's in my head.

There were times in school where the cheese in my bag didn't quite melt but began the separation where that oily stuff starts to ooze out of the cheese andI was okay. As an aside, I also find that for me if the melted cheese is with any sort of wheat it's worse. A hamburger on a bun is fine.

A cheeseburger on a plate is less fine. A cheeseburger on a bun is bad. Man that sucks. But at least apples and gouda are still okay. I may never know lol. My 4 year old has this allergy too, she starts sneezing and suffers from cold and running nose whenever she has melted cheese. We realized it today while eating quiche. Thanks for the post. I think I have the same issue. I get bad cramps right after eating something with melted cheese. The only way to stop the cramping is to force myself to vomit. I know that is bad but it helps. What else can I do to stop or relieve the cramping.

I also have no problem with kefir, cottage cheese, yogurt and small amounts of milk. Thanks so much. I have been trying to figure out what is going on with me. Pizza always seems to keep me up all night with a fast heartbeat and slightly sick stomach. Grilled cheese toasties send me running to the toilet, hoping I make it there in time.

And a few weeks ago I made nachos with a melty-cheese sauce and it gave me diarrhea. The common denominator seems to be the melted cheese. It's the kind of nausea where you feel like you're about to burb but you can't and it feels awful. Haven't eaten a lot of pizza during past few years because of it. No one ever found anything out.

Even a misdiagnose of IBS. I'm sitting on the loo having eaten cauliflower cheese an hour ago, wondering when this will stop!


So glad I'm not alone. I have this problem with a lot of rich food, and avoid creamy sauces, too. It does most likely become harder to digest. I suffer froma digestive problem now for the past 2 years. There was a lot of things I had to stop eating. It is really something I just live with if I eat the cheese I know what is going to happen.

My daughter Kaydence has this issue. It started probably about 8 months ago or so. I have found this article extremely helpful we are another step closer to figuring out what is wrong with her! Thank you so much for sharing your story with us! I am reading this article on the toilet after eating a cheese toastie for lunch. I figured out that melted cheese upset my stomach a few years back and I now avoid it. I have the same problem. Your physics teacher makes a lot of sense. Thanks for sharing this information! I was a picky eater as a child and lived on bread and I think that caused lobg-term damage to my gut.

Im now 40 and have developed some terrible problems with wheat, sugar and dairy. Went dairy free years ago but recently started back on cheese and yoghurt to try and heal my gut. Can eat cheese, icecream, cream with only minor cramps but melted or cooked, im on the toilet for hours. I have to start keeping a food diary again!!!

Arregh so boring. Mixture of other foods? Empty or full stomache? Still dont know. For nearly 3 years I have suffered from a swollen tongue. It can be weeks or months between times. After having some allergy tests, blaming stress etc. I now think this could be due to eating cooked cheese. Please please has anybody else had these symptoms. I have the same effect: I eat every form of milk without restrictions and without problem. But if I eat melted cheese, ,5 hour later my digestive system stop to work: it is like a cork in the stomach, in the gut.

Nothing going through. Last time, today, my wife gave me Coke Cola 6 hours after eat cheese. An hour later i get in life again. This seems to be the only place that has a possible answer for me, but I don't get physically sick when I eat melted cheese. However it did just occur to me today, when I ate melted cheese in my dinner I had an allergic reaction.
