Eau Claire (WQOW) -- The holidays are over and 2018 is here! For many of us, that means making a resolution to eat healthier and lucky for us, cheese is a nutritious choice that deliciously fits into most eating plans. As part of a healthy, balanced diet, cheese contributes high-quality protein as well as calcium.
Three-Bean Chili with Colby:
On a cold snowy evening, nothing can warm you up more than a bowl of hot chili with Wisconsin cheese sprinkled on top. We like using Wisconsin Colby as a rich and creamy addition to this veggie-loaded chili.
Colby is similar to cheddar with its mild flavor. Its golden in color and great for cooking, putting on sandwiches, and snacks. It's softer than cheddar and has a more open texture with a mild, milky flavor.
Vegetable Frittata with Asiago Cheese:
Pretty for Sunday brunch or a light dinner, this egg dish features fresh veggies paired with a melty Wisconsin Asiago. There are endless possibilities for frittata fillings. This recipe uses fresh veggies found in most refrigerators, along with Fresca, which is a perfect melting cheese. Wisconsin cheesemakers typically age their asiago cheeses longer so they are more firm.
As a suggestion, try serving this Asiago Vegetable Frittata with a side of fresh fruit and crusty warm bread.
