What To Do, What To Do?

Our Morning Glory cheese is a soft, spreadable, cows' milk cheese, which is a little different than your typical slice & eat artisan cheese.  We occasionally hear the question: what do you do with it?  Our answer: just about anything you can think of! Satisfied customers keep giving us new ideas, and we love hearing how you've enjoyed our cheese!

The obvious option: spread it!  On crackers, your morning bagel, or a scrumptiously fresh loaf of bread (from Wide Awake Bakery, if you are local!).  For your spreading pleasure, let the cheese come to room temperature first. For a variation, try slathering the chive flavor on steaming fresh sweet corn when it's in season, or let it melt over your favorite cooked vegetables.  Potatoes were made for our cheese - whether you put a dollop on your baked, or swirl it in to mashed, they'll be great friends!

Don't limit yourself to the spread!  Morning Glory also sweetens nicely, with your choice of brown sugar, honey, or maple syrup.  Pair it with fresh fruit and enjoy, or warm it on the grill or under a broiler first.  Try stirring in caramel sauce and a sprinkle of brown sugar, then slice up a handful of crisp apples. Voila, the perfect snack!

To warm up, try melting Morning Glory in a toasty grilled cheese, or use it in place of ricotta in any Italian dish.  Add a little heat, and you will soon have stringy, gooey, goodness!  Substitute it in place of cream cheese in your holiday baking for a rich, creamy flavor - our custom-made cheese cakes are heavenly!

Enjoy our Morning Glory however you'd like, and then please let us know! Here is a unique, frozen salad that is a family tradition!
