Port Salut and you?

I discovered this amazing cheese last week which of course is great to eat alone or with crackers or bread. It also melted gorgeously in an omelet. Do you have any favorite ways to use Port Salut?

  1. I think that on a cracker is best.

    1. In the Uk it's relatively cheap and widely available, so I eat far too much of it. I like it in a baguette with a medium-strength salami.

      Have been known to open the fridge, small knife in hand, and slice off a piece right there and then. My fridge. Not at the supermarket.

      1. I enjoy it with croissant and fruit for breakfast.

        1. God bless the little old cheese man from my local Wegman's. He suggest it for a cheese plate for me and I fell in LOVE with it! It's wonderful on any cracker but I've found a nice tart apple or a just barely ripe pear is a divine base. I've also used it in place of brie since I'm the only one in the house that will eat it.

            It's delicious. You should try Robiola if you like the soft creamy cheeses.

          2. Yes, this is an American thing, but a grilled cheese sandwich with Port Salut is to die for.

              Timely. I had just revisited this thread when i searched this question again this week after having remembered my past love for Port Salut. I've been using it as a substitute for cream cheese lately. Probably American, but that's what I am :)
