When making cheese, you end up with curds (the cheese) and whey (the liquid byproduct). Here are step-by-step instructions for making dry curd cheese or farmers cheese. Frugal cooks know not to discard whey. It can be used in many recipes like this pizza and calzone dough recipe. Here are other recipes that use whey to good advantage -- Polish Italian-Style Bread, Polish Barley Soup Recipe and Polish Whey Soup.

Great idea, nice flavors, Member lkonieczny

This is a fun recipe to make, because first you make the cheese for it, then you use some of the whey for the dough. I was a bit heavy-handed with the potatoes, I'd use less next time and more chicken. And more caramelized onions, they really give it a nice sweetness. Make sure to use your favorite barbecue sauce, but not one that is too sweet, because the onions bring some nice sweetness already. Next time I'd add just a bit of acid (vinegar) to the BBQ sauce to give it a bit more tang. But I will make this again, no doubt!
