If you need a new appetizer in your repertoire my Hot Cheddar Onion Dip should be it. With the sweetness of sauteed onions and the smokiness of smoked paprika, it is unique and delicious.
Heluva Good!® cheese is an old standby in our home. At least 2-3 nights a week my husband slices up some cheddar and salami for himself and the kids to snack on while I cook. My kids enjoy it with crackers but I normally just eat a few slices plain although I do love cheddar cheese paired with a thin slice of a crispy apple.
If you’ve been around my blog in the past you will see cheese play a big part in a lot of recipes. I love the richness and flavor of cheesy casseroles and other main dishes. In the summer we tend to pack lunch for the pool a few days a week. Slices or cubes of Heluva Good! Block Cheese and deli meat are an easy and quick gluten free way to bring along protein. One of my favorite simple summer pairings is a cube of cheddar topped with a cherry tomato and a green olive. You can just stick a toothpick through all three to make a one bite appetizer.
I shop for Heluva Good at my local Wal-Mart. I was very excited when they opened a grocery section a few years ago. It is hard to get to multiple stores with kids underfoot (especially in the summer when all four are home from school) so I like the convenience of shopping at Wal-Mart for their wide selection. There is currently a promotion for Heluva Good on Ibotta. There isn’t an expiration date so make sure to take advantage of this offer before all the rebates are claimed.
