Stinky Goodness

I am fed up with how so many good foods reek. I hate how I can come home and my wife will immidiatly get pissed at me because of the stench that fills the air. Ok, I have already gone into the issues of garlic and the dangerous farts they produce, but in general stinky foods have no major side effects besides pissing off the wife.

The other day I decided to go to an extreme…I took the most intense smelling foods I love and decided to make a pizza. It was the birth of something beautiful, and competely disgusting at the same time.

Limburger Cheese, a force not to be underestimated.

My pizza consisted of the usual stench suspects: garlic and onion. Then I also added roasted brussels sprouts and mushrooms, both easily able to overpower the wimpy sent of the “tropical rainfall” Febreze and the various floral-based candles scattered around the house that Mrs. Fed Up insists we have. Of course, there was plenty of strong seasoning thrown on top for good measure.

But for the most important step for the funk-frankenstien-pizza, was the cheese. I decided to go to all out, and bought Limburger Cheese. A cheese known as one of the funkest around. Few mortals can stand strong against it. Once you break open the thick seal wrapping the block of cheese, your nostreals instantly get assualted by the stench of unwashed feet. This cheese is strong, and not to be underestimated.

Well the pizza came out exteremely stinky, but exteremly good. Mrs. Fed Up came home and truly could not belive how nasty our beautiul home smelled. Multiple threats were thrown in my direction.

Ahhh, the stench of an amazing pizza using limburger cheese, garlic, onions, more onions, brussels sprouts and plenty of strong seasoning.

It truly frustrates me how the some of the best tasting things, can stink so bad. But either way, I say embrace the stench, enjoy the taste and simply accept that no one will want to talk to you or really even be in the same room as you, for a few days.

    Love the post and I love stinky cheese too!!!! One time coming home from Switzerland, I packed my carry on with delicious (and stinky) cheese and by the end of the 16 hour trip I smelled like a football team’s locker room of dirty socks!

    Your pizza looks to die for. If you continue to make Mrs. Fed Up meals like these, I am sure she will quickly forgive you!

      Hi Seaside Baker, I LOVE SWISS CHEESE. A good cave aged Gruyere is one of the most perfect smelling things in the world. I really wish they had air fresheners or laundry detergent with this amazing sent. This is one of the those cheeses that BOTH myself and Mrs. Fed Up really like. My favorite use for Gruyere is on another pizza I wrote about several months ago:

      Thanks for visiting the site!

    The best way to buy limburger is to wait until it is almost out of date at the grocery – it gets even stinkier! If you can wait it out, buy & keep in your own fridge, but I just don’t have the patience for that; if I get it home, I eat it! That pizza sounds awesome!

      Yep, that is a real REAL good strategy for getting the tastiest cheese. I actually do this for any goat cheese I buy…I look for the oldest, slimiest cheese I can find at the store. I love it when I find a nice moldy Humboldt Fog. In fact, last night’s dinner was a nice moldy goat cheese topped pizza (with cottage cheese and broccoli).
      I really like the idea of trying to age some cheese in the fridge, I never thought of that, but I bet it would create some tasty (and stinky) results.

      Oh and I discovered a new seasonal cheese that has quickly become one of my favorites; while it does have a serious stench, it is not quite as stinky as Limburger…BUT the taste is much MUCH stronger. I am planning of posting about this amazing cheese soon.

    […] Ok, to be truly fair, America is adapting other culture’s creations too. In reality, it really is a two-way street.

Where would we be if there were no taco’s to be found? And how the hell could we possibly survive with out pizza? […]
