I’m not going to list all the jerks out there.
I’m going to be honest and say that I don’t even have a particular favourite, but I do have a general idea of the ones that I like the most.
I know, I know.
I have no clue what those things are, but they do exist.
I guess that’s why I’ve written a piece for this blog in which I list all of the things that I think are jerky.
So let’s start with the most common ones.
The best-known jerky You may have heard of them: The Cheeseburger Jerky The Cheerios Jerky This is the stuff you get when you eat cheeseburgers, but why would you want to eat a cheeseburger with cheese?
The Cheesy Jerky (I’m a big fan of the Cheesy One.)
A friend of mine who’s a regular on the site, The Cheezeburger Guy, tells me he’s had “several dozen” cheesebags over the years and never has he been able to get them to melt.
“I know it’s a thing,” he said.
“But it doesn’t really make any difference.”
He was referring to the “cheese jerky,” which, when placed on a cheesesteak, can become a delicious treat.
And for some reason, you can’t get them at most supermarket cheeses, including the ones at Whole Foods.
A common ingredient for this stuff is the salty casing of cheese.
But if you don’t have the right ingredients, the salt can cause the jerk to get hard.
(And yes, it’s really bad.)
The most common “jerk” I’ve seen is the Frito-Lay Cheeses Jerky.
The flavor of this stuff has always struck me as a little bit bland.
But that’s not to say it’s bad.
It’s just that it’s not my favourite.
The Cheesecakes Jerky (My family has been using it for years.)
If you’re into that sort of thing, you’re going to like the Cheesecake Jerky .
The reason why?
Because it’s made with fresh, unprocessed cheeses and is packed with vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids, and because the mixture of cheeses inside it is the same as that of a fritter.
It comes in several different flavors and is a great way to use up leftover fritters.
This stuff is also super delicious when combined with some caramel sauce.
It’s also a good way to make a good-for-you quick meal and is definitely worth trying.
But this is not the only jerky you can make with frittered cheeses.
You can also make this kind of jerky in a similar way.
The Bacon Jerky If you’re looking for a way to give bacon a little extra kick without all of that bacon fat, you should definitely try the Bacony Jerky or the Cinnamon Jerky , both of which I will be sharing in a future post.
So what are the other “jermies” that you should try?
