Hi Everybody!

One of my favorite things when looking through recipes or cookbooks are entrees that take less than 30 minutes to make and serve. When I found one I’m all over it. Well I found one the other day that peaked my interest and when I made it the recipe was not only a WOW but is now on my list for top favorites especially if you love sundried tomatoes and basil pesto which I personally love to devour. So here is a great 30-minute meal that you and your family can enjoy and it’s great for those weeknight meals when you don’t have a lot of time.

Cheese Please with Kevin
Kevin

Eichten’s cheesemakers and mother Mary saw the future in the category of spiced cheeses. Eichten’s was the first farm in the United States to produce an all-natural cheese direct from the farm in 1976.

Italian Seasonings were commonplace in large families in the 1980’s, and Eichten’s knew that this seasoning would be a amazing hit for cooking and eating by itself. Just slice on crackers or fresh baked crusty breads this cheese is sure to please!

Eichtens developed a true European style Gouda with tantalizing sun dried tomatoes and sweet basil that brings out the essence of Italy.

Produced in Shafer, Minnesota, this is one of our states outstanding flavored Goudas. And don’t forget about the other fine Goudas that Eichten’s produces, they are all wonderful!

A great pairing with a sweet white or red wine, light amber beers and or Italian dishes.

Make sure to enjoy this fine Minnesota cheese!

This recipe was amazing. The oil and vinegar mixture with a couple of drops of red pepper sauce gave this recipe a real zing to it. It was a hit at last nights dinner. Just a quick tip: if you are in a hurry, use fully cooked bacon and it will save you some time. Enjoy….I did!
