I know if I freeze cheddar cheese it crumbles after thawing. Can I freeze Fontina, Romano, Parmesan, and goat cheese?

I have never tried freezing Fontina or goat cheese, but I do freeze Romano and Parmesan. I do, however, grate them before freezing because they also crumble. You don't even need to add flour to keep the grated cheese from clumping. I spread it on a cookie sheet and flas freeze then transfer to a freezer bag.

I freeze goat cheese, but as BSM says the cheese crumbles.

Might check the still tasty website to see if specific cheeses make a difference. As I recall, most of the time they only suggest using cheese for cooked dishes once frozen since they do tend to get crumbly.

I freeze mine but but I grate or shred first. Parmesan I cut into chunks that will fit in my cheese grater, then freeze and pull out a few chunks every now and then to defrost then grate and put in a glass bowl with a lid in the refrigerator. ***
