Cheese on a roast?

No thanks!

An online 'storm' has occurred when a woman shared a picture of the Sunday roast her husband made - and it had grated cheese on!

I always struggled with even the idea of cauliflower cheese with a roast (cheese sauce and gravy - yuck), despite being introduced to it by my in-laws in the 1980s.
I don't do this.
I can't bring myself to do this.
But, I know this will divide the pack.
However, grated cheese?!
Surely that's the work of the devil!

I've never got the cauli-cheese with a roast thing, maybe its a north/south thing? Cheese on a roast, thats just weird.

Not sure about cheese on a roast but there are ma my worse things I can think of.

On Sunday I went out with my daughter and she chose the meat-free mushroom and Stilton roast so I joined her and it was delicious.

It seems a bit excessive with everything else that might be going on, on your plate with a roast. But don't see the issue.  Although I'd draw the line at cottage cheese!!.

I love cheese, so sprinkling it on most things is okay with me.
Grated cheese makes the best cheese on toast and is fab on hot chips too.....

I often eat at Italian restaurants and the waiters are always hovering with a sprinkling of cheese or black pepper lol.

I just have visions of a full roast with grated cheese sprinkled over.

I like a roast dinner and i also like cauliflower-cheese but when i go round the carvery for a Sunday roast lunch occasionally i never pick the cauliflower-cheese and i certainly wouldn't have cheese sprinkled on my roast dinner, anybody would think it was a pizza, god, no!

One cannot argue over tast. So it is pointless, in my view, to argue the case either way.

I'm canvassing opinion Sam.
It's aimed at a deep and inciteful conversation.
I am fully confident that that will happen.

I often eat non-meat meals and drink non-alcoholic drinks but don't give it too much thought. There's plenty of choice around for everyone.

I like parmesan.
Parmesan on my bolognaise doesn't feel quite the same as grated cheddar sprinkled over my roast chicken and sprouts.
But then, there's hunter's chicken - and that has cheese in.
Maybe we'll all be doing it one day!

cheese and beef yuk,

So what about on a hamburger? that's beef ! cheese on that is as normal as the additions of pickles, special sauce etc.
They even give star billing to one with the addition. Cheeseburger!.

No, I don't eat those.
I make my own.
I admit I have rarely put blue cheese in the middle, I'll concede that, but I rarely eat beef anymore.
