An Ooey Gooey Cheese Boat You’ll Love; fun food that’s perfect for celebrating game days, Super Bowls, Friday nights, weekends, or when you need a savory treat!
Also known as Khachapuri, a bread with Georgian origins, cheese boats are trending in restaurants all across the country. In fact, a Brooklyn, New York restaurant, aptly named “Cheeseboat,” has become a favorite stop on the east coast.
Here is their cheese boat.
But if you’re not in New York, or simply want to make one at home. It’s incredibly easy. And fun! And perfect for appetizers, game day treats (like the Super Bowl) or cozy weekends with friends and family.
It’s best when you make your own dough, but store-bought is just fine as well. I’ve even tried it with the pizza dough that comes in a can. It works but because the dough is rectangular shaped, you have to finagle it a bit to shape it into rounds and then into boat shapes. The taste, however, isn’t the same as using a quality pizza dough. Which is definitely preferred.
Cheese boats or khachapuris are traditionally made with a raw egg topping which you stir into the hot cheese to cook. I’m not a fan of raw eggs so often I either eliminate it all together or bake it in the oven. Directions are below.
