Beer And Cheddar Cheese Puffs

Such a perfect way to serve your guests during a football game party or during the upcoming holiday get-togethers! This recipe makes about 4 to 5 dozen little buns depending on how heavy handed the cook is, ha ha! Yes, I’m still on a cheese kick but with company coming this weekend, I wanted something to munch on while Kenny and I kick their butts playing poker! I came across this recipe in my older book, Recipes on Parade, and with a few changes, this was the way I rocked! You can fill these lite little babies up with anything your heart desires, from chicken salad to a cheese spread which I put on mine today. Kenny is now opting to use them for his Po Po platter for an upcoming football game. I was going to ask you to keep a secret for me but then I realized Kenny would find an open beer can in the frig with half of it gone. You see, I used his Yuengling lager beer for this recipe, OOPS! So with that, on with the party……………

Honey...You been drinking my beer?

Asiago Cheese And Spinach Bites

Asiago Cheese Balls

Asiago Cheese Balls – Um! Husbands mistake…COM.. Not .net….Ugh!

This weekend, I played around with our Asiago cheese from Italy again. Hope you’re not getting tired of it! I wanted to make another dish with our tasty cheese and decided to make a Parmesan like hamburger steak only substituting Asiago cheese for the parm and the spinach bites with garlic bread for complimenting it. Asiago cheese is not something Kenny and I have been eating for a long time but have found it an excellent cheese to use instead of Parmesan. All was a huge success and we loved every bite leaving nary a crumb! Today I’m just going to do the recipe for the spinach as we are getting bad storms in the area and I don’t know how long my computer will be up and running.

 

 

So tasty with the Italian sauce and Asigo Cheese!

Pasta With Asiago Cheese Sauce

Having ham for dinner last night, I thought this dish would be a nice compliment to old Porky and a great way to use some of our Asiago cheese  we received from Italy! With a few changes to a pasta recipe I found in a Better Homes & Gardens cookbook, I have to admit it came out pretty awesome. Oh yea… One thing to add, while grating the aged Asiago Cheese…It kinda got away from me…As you can see! Of course< Kenny had to be the man and take over the grating. Macho dude he is!  ;-)

Cheese every where!! Oh my!

Cheese every where!! Oh my!

Kenny really loved the pasta and it went so well with the fresh green beans I had picked up at the flea market this week. We had a little cheese on everything (literately) including our crescent rolls! Although I could not finish off my whole plate (you know, eyes bigger than your stomach thing), husband had no problem helping me. I am really looking forward to using all of this wonderful tasting cheese in more delicious recipes in the near future.

The chilled Sangria went perfect with this meal.

Like I said, I also had green beans and we sprinkled them with some extra grated real Asiago Cheese and before I rolled up my crescent rolls, they too got a little cheese with a little dash of garlic…… Hope you enjoy and have a nice weekend!
