I am craving blue cheese but can't have it because I'm pregnant - what could I have instead? I'm desperate!

(22 Posts)

Argh! I need that really sharp taste that goes with the creaminess.

Stupid Listeria! angry

Please help.

I know I want something, but what?

philly and balsamic vinegar

Can't you have it warmed up/cooked in something which removes the risk? Or is that my imagination...

Have a steak with blue cheese sauce.

or you could pretend you're french
french birds up the stick are necking roquefort by the crate, I'll wager

Ooh, can I? Not sure that is the flavour I want, but heating it would kill Listeria.

SW - oddly enough that is the right sort of thing, but not quite.

I am making notes now. I hadn't thought of a sauce either.

This is why I love MN

You could just inhale the vapours of a nice ripe pair of socks!wink

that's not odd, that's my cheffly genius wink

Ah, I see grin

I bow to your genius. I love balsamic.

Not sure about the socks - I might want to eat them shock

Yes, you can have cooked blue cheese. See here
Huge field mushrooms are yummy baked with cambozola (sp?)

cream cheese with sweet chilli sauce [heaven]

francagoestohollywood Fri 17-Oct-08 18:02:02

melt butter and blue cheese. add some cream. sprinkle some chive. Use sauce to dress a nice plate of linguine. or spaghetti. or whatever pasta you have smile

Hurrah about the cooked cheese.

And oooooh at the sweet chilli sauce idea - loving that one.

Thank you thank you thank you!

I thought the coal craving was bad enough, but this one... too tempting to turn down.

And now I won't have to grin

You have all made a nauseous woman very happy.

If you start craving limescale I have a kettle that can help you out grin

Limescale! Someone else craved limescale? I thought I was the only freak who did that.

Did you get your cheesey fix YKKOTC?

Thank to this thread I dreamed I was heavily pregnant. Yikes

If you like marmite/yeast extract, try that on toasted brown bread with tahini. I was mad for that combo when duffed. Satisfies that craving for strong flavours

Stilton & broccoli soup!

FruitynNutty Mon 20-Oct-08 14:08:46

I love broccoli and stilton soup!
I have to say I gave up with all this nonsense this time around and ate a huge portion or brie on French bread last week. The French all do this.
I haven't heard of anyone catching listeria. Pregnant or not.

If you are concerned though. I would definitely go with the soup smile

Oh dear it's dangerous to suggest sweet chilli sauce to a pregnant woman!

Myself and three of my friends have been addicted to the stuff. I used to have it with cheese on toast for breakfast, with a roast dinner, everything.
