Baking Challenge Week 11 - Savory - 'Appetizer' Cheesecake EPIC FAIL!
Seriously, it was disgusting. We each took a single bite, then I took a picture for posterity, then I threw the entire thing away. I hate to waste food, but there was absolutely no saving this.
I won't share the recipe--why perpetuate awfulness?--but it was an unsweetened cheesecake flavored with curry powder and shredded cheddar cheese and condensed cream of chicken soup. Strange, but I thought it at least had potential.
And I was wrong! The texture was bad, the flavor was off-putting, the smell was....indescribable. In a bad way.
As a bonus, it was supposed to be the second installment of the Neglected Cookbook Project, as it was from a cheesecake cookbook that I've only used once before. But I love cheesecake, and won't hold the cookbook responsible, because I'm sure the hundreds of other, non-savory, cheesecakes are fine. I'll make one of them soon to erase this wretched failure from my brain and taste buds.
