Tips For Making Polish Sweet Cheese
Skip Egg Yolks If You Want To Have Your Polish Sweet Cheese Cold
Although raw egg yolk is a must-add ingredient in any Polish sweet cheese recipe, you can skip it if you want to be sure you won’t get a Salmonella infection.
Eating raw eggs is always a bit risky, so if you decide to add a yolk, make sure to wash the egg first.
If you want to warm Polish sweet cheese up, f.e. you are doing it to stuff the buns, it’s perfectly safe to add the egg yolk.
If You Want To Get The Lighter Version Of Polish Sweet Cheese, Use Greek Yoghurt Instead Of Butter
Alternatively, you can use the sour cream.
