We want to help you celebrate the New Year in style! As 2017 looms ahead, this 70s classic is making a comeback. From its humble beginnings as a bar snack in Wisconsin taverns, 2016 was proclaimed to be Year of the Cheese Balls. We have a feeling, however, that you didn’t get your fill of this cheesy wonder. That’s why we propose the following: celebrate the dawn of 2017 by not only watching the ball drop, but feasting on one as well. While cheese balls can run the gamut, from sweet to tangy blue to Southwestern inspired, we chose a classic 70s inspired recipe: Nutty, sharp, and with a hint of spice, this cheese ball will wow, whatever your New Years plans may be.
Like to customize your food? Fondue offers a wide range of options. There are numerous ways to change up the recipe each time. Never have the same fondue twice!
It’s easy. Choose your cheeses, 3# in any combination, follow the recipe, get fondu-in’!
*Pro Tip: When choosing your cheese selection for a fondue, it’s best to choose at least one alpine cheese into your mix. Try a classic like Gruyere or Emmentaler, or anything in the “Go Nutty” section.
3 Pounds Of Cheese (Mix and Match)
1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
1 Cup Beer or Wine
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1 Garlic love
Coarsely grate the cheeses and toss with the cornstarch. Heat the wine or beer with lemon juice over medium heat. When hot, add the cheese mixture a handful at a time until melted. Add black pepper to taste. If serving in a fondue pot, rub the pot with a clove of garlic. Set the pot on its stand over a low flame. Pour in your melted fondue.
Step 1: Choose Your Cheese!
Choose your cheese to create a customized fondue blend.
Cooking for the holidays couldn’t get any easier than this withthe Brie Baker Gift Set. I’m all about spending hours in the kitchen, cooking with friends and eating lots of cheese but the cheese biz is hectic this time of year — not much time to spend in the kitchen! After long days in cheese land, finding the right dish to bring to holiday festivities can be a bit challenging.
It needs to be:
1. Mostly Cheese…. Do I need to explain?
2. Cheap and Easy… I love my friends but gotta watch the wallet!
3. Impressive…. Because I got a cheese rep to keep up, ya know?
Sometimes you’ve gotta go with Betty Crocker, but it’s gotta look Martha Stewart. There are a couple of ways to bake a wheel of cheese, but this year we got our hands on a new piece of cookware that is perfect for the job. In fact, I love this guy so much, I sent my mom the “Brie Baker Gift Set” which comes with the cheese and Fig Jam.
This stuff is versatile — a great savory early party snack, or sweet after dinner indulgence.
Pop it in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes.
Grab a crispy baguette, rip off a chunk and get dippin’. Couldn’t be easier, and you now look like a culinary mastermind. This dish is great for the lazy college students heading home for the holidays looking to impress everyone at family dinner. Or a soccer mom looking for an effortless dish to bring to that holiday party. Even better, it’s a great project for the little ones… let the kids choose the toppings and go nuts! And don’t forget, it’s a great gift.
And that’s that. You are now officially a Brie Baker!
