Whole Foods in Short Pump used to carry it, but no longer. Sheese is pretty good, but very hard. I'd like a softer, more intense version - like I remember blue cheese being - although I may be misremembering.

Oh yeah! I meant they're in the USA! I've gotten them at BJ's wholesale, and have seen them at regular groceries.

 

When I first looked through this thread I couldn't think of anything much. 
Today I remembered smoked Slovenian sausage! Man I loved those.
I love Field Roast, and wouldn't like the real thing if I had it anyway.

It is quite nice in a cheese sandwich, but I always preferred mild cheese in sandwiches.

Not sure if the Tesco one melts, but some of Redwood's ones sort of melt, and make ok cheese on toast. They do some pizzas to which are ok too.



but maybe you've tried that lot......not sure the Tesco cheese is available everywhere.

 

I tried the Tesco soya cheese and I found it revolting. I even tried the mild one coz I worried about it being too synthetically strong-tasting, but it still reeked and tasted like synthetic socks. Tried to melt it on a baked enchilada and it congealed and slithered around the plate in a grey coagulated lump. I shudder at the memory.

 

Can you get Redwood products in stores in the UK though? All the other vegan cheeses people mention here you can only get online as far as I can tell and they are prohibitively expensive. I miss cheese on pizza, but not that much. My local Holland & Barrett is very small and doesn't have a chilled section like I think some others do?

 

I miss good French toast. Yeah, I know about all the vegan versions and have tried several of them but they don't work. It really needs egg to cook properly and not result in a soggy, stuck-to-the-pan mess. bigcry.gif I miss good French toast!!

Yes, corned beef.  My favorite sandwich 23 years ago was a Reuben.

I feel weird admitting this but I miss "$h!t on toast" you know that chipped beef in cream sauce.

 

Believe it or not S.O.S. is on my short list of things to work up a recipe for. Thing is, I probably won't work on it until I get a mandoline or some other way to cut paper thin slices of ... probably seitan, but I'm not 100% sure what I'll use. Marine corps style S.O.S. is made with ground beef rather than chipped, so all you need are beef-style crumbles or whatever in a vegan bechemal sauce. Not the same as chipped though.

 

Poppy, by some strange coincidence, the blog I was reading just before I came here had a blue cheese recipe. It's a little involved, with unusual ingredients and the use of a  dehydrator, but if you wanna give it a swing it's at http://melomeals.blogspot.com/2012/05/vegan-blue-cheese-recipe.html

 

Up until a few days ago I would have said I'd like to see a vegan deep-fried cheese curds - but I stumbled upon one! Haven't tried it yet, but it looks good. (http://micahludeke.blogspot.com/2012/05/vegan-cheese-curds.html)

A good stuffed omelet, my boyfriend would like to see a vegan fried egg with runny yolk. Oh, and french toast too. A wider variety of cheeses would be great.

 

I imagine in 5 - 10 years there will be vegan meats and cheeses at the deli ready to slice.

I could swear I saw a recipe someplace for a homemade one, but can't remember where. Here's a runny yolk though, which might hit the spot a bit: http://www.veganmischief.com/vegan-soft-egg-yolks-from-airy-way/

 

EDIT: and here's the white: http://airyway.blogspot.com/2010/08/vegan-poached-eggs-black-salt.html  It's poached-like instead of fried though.

Ahh, thanks for the tip on the corned beef hash!  We made tempeh reubens last night and they were great, the taste was really close (although the texture and the fattiness was wrong). 

 

I do love spring rolls, but I still miss eggrolls with the thicker wrapper and that weird pink meat.  Jeez, corned beef hash and eggrolls?  I apparently really enjoyed grossly colored meat.  undecided.gif

I've bookmarked the egg link, can't wait to try it. I hope he likes it or I'm back to hoping. While I've heard of the Vegg it isn't something that is readily available. I'd like something I know I have the ingredients to make instead of trying to convince him to eat a weird food product bought online.

 

Thanks!
