“A delicious, creamy cheese that perks up bagels and sandwiches. Very simple to make and the variations are endless. Try to use a full fat yogurt such as Balkan style. You could easily experiment with many other ingredients such as, chopped olives, fresh herbs or sweet ingredients.” - by LISAMONIQUE
Original recipe yields 2 cups
- Line a strainer with two layers of cheesecloth. In a medium bowl, mix together the yogurt, salt, pepper and garlic.
- Pour into the cheesecloth lined strainer. Place the strainer over another bowl to catch the liquid, and refrigerate for 1 to 2 days, until all of the liquid has drained off. Empty the drainage bowl occasionally so you can see when the cheese has stopped draining.
- Transfer cheese to a covered container, and store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

"I love yogurt cheese. I use coffee filters instead of cheesecloth and it works just as well. I love to make yogurt cheese patties. Roll them in bread crumbs and pan fry them and serve them atop greens..." See more with a vinagrette. It makes an excellent salad!"
"Ohh~!! Nice way to make creamy cheese! Loved it! Although instead of waiting for the water to drain away I just poured the mix on a clean handkerchief placed on a strainer and twisted the cloth to man..." See moreually drain it while watching TV. I just couldn’t wait for the two days. It was easy and not messy at all. I did this until there was no more water to drain. Just remember to wash your hands very well. You can instantly see how the cheese forms."
"YUM! I changed things up a bit though... I didn't add anything to the yogurt, and since I didn't have cheese cloth, I used 2 paper towels. It worked great! After the yogurt cheese was made, I adde..." See mored chopped green olives! YUM! Also, the second time I tried this, I added chopped cucumbers, salt, garlic and dry dill. This is my new favorit recipe!"
