Just Say Cheese!

Just Say Cheese!

One of the staples I keep in my refrigerator is shredded cheese.  Yes, I live in Wisconsin and love cheese.  Wisconsin has nearly 1,200 licensed cheesemakers that produce over 600 types, styles and varieties of cheese – nearly double the number of any other state. 

Shredded cheese is a tasty way to add calcium to foods. An added bonus is it often adds an extra splash of color.
Foods I enhance with a sprinkle of cheese include:
  • Salads
  • Omelets
  • Baked potatoes
  • Nachos
  • Tacos
  • Casseroles
  • Pasta
Shredded cheese comes in several varieties and is available in both regular and reduced fat versions.
So … if you’re looking for an easy way to kick up the flavor, nutrition and color of foods, just say cheese!
