Cheese Filled Cherry Tomatoes

Cheese Filled Cherry Tomatoes - The Cheese Shark

A cheese we recommend for this dish is Le Chevre Frais or Neufchatel Cheese. These cheeses are easy to make and work well with homogenized store bought milk. When you make it with goat milk it is called Le Chevre Frais, if you make it with cow milk it is called Neufchatel Cheese. It is a fresh, soft cheese that is spreadable.
