To Beet or not to Beet?

Beets: love them or loathe them?

I am a beet lover. And while I type this autocorrect keeps wanting to say beer over beet. For the record, I also love beer.

Prior to posting this meal, a few friends discouraged this beet-alicious post. They said the photo looked gross. I asked why and they said because beets are gross.

On an aside, beets are crazy hard to photograph. At least for me.

As for the meal, I think if you find different ways to cook and incorporate ingredients, you may find them to be quite appealing.

My beets were pickled so they were a little on the sweeter side. But if you use a savory cheese and maybe some greens, it can really change the flavor. I would’ve liked to use a chèvre spread but I only had Swiss cheese on hand. I was very pleased with this grilled beet and Swiss cheese!
