Smooth and creamy, this cheese is delicious on salads, sandwiches and great in various meals and recipes. Slice it, shred it or cube it, you’ll enjoy a deliciously mild flavor no matter how it’s served.

If you are looking for an AMAZING way to put that cheese to use, you gotta try my Cheesy Corn Balls!

These scrumptious bite-sized nuggets of goodness are incredibly popular here at my house. I’ll often serve them up as a side dish with chicken or fish and they are always the star of the plate. They are also great for entertaining. They make for great little appetizers and never last long when served up!
