Cabot Cheese is Delicious

| October 5, 2013 | Comments (1)


Cabot’s ‘Horseradish’ cheddar cheese is my absolute favorite cheese. Mild with a hint of fire, this cheese has so many uses on the menus I plan it is ridiculous!

One of my families repeat must-haves is ‘Cheesy Rice’ made with Cabot horseradish cheddar cheese slices. After boiling a basic pot of rice, I scoop out a bowl and add two generous portions of cheese and microwave for a few seconds. It is scrumptious.

Here are some ideas to entice you. Enjoy!

  1. Thanks so much for the cheesy love, Dwana. Our farm family owners really appreciate your support. PS Though there are many Cabot Cheddar flavors to choose from, I’m partial to Horseradish myself. My favorite way to eat it is on a grilled cheese. With bacon!
