So I had a half gallon of milk that was going to go bad at any moment. I knew we would not drink it in time but I didn’t want to waste or throw away a perfectly usable ingredient.  Usually milk on the verge of going bad goes into a baked good but today I was feeling creative. It turned out fantastic. I even made two separate batches so they could have different flavors. The spicy batch was a little bit crumbly (I think I could have gotten more liquid out) but it crumbled like feta. The salty batch was firm and cut nicely. Both were delicious!
