Tilla-moms and Tilla-dads, it’s time to dust off your tongs and fire up the grill. These sunny afternoons call for a party, and we’re here to help with summer-ready recipes for all your BBQ staples. No barb-excuses, grab an apron and get grilling now!
Bacon Cheddar Hushpuppies
Be sure to grab a couple of these fritters before grilling your burger. Trust us – they’ll be snatched up faster than you can say “hushpuppies!” With bacon, cheese, and crunchy batter, join us this summer in saying yes to comfort food.
Fruit & Cheese Salad
Juicy, refreshing fruit is my #1 summer craving, and this colorful salad doesn’t disappoint. Chunks of Medium Cheddar complement tart kiwis and strawberries, adding a creamy twist to this classic potluck dish.
Baked Mac & Cheese
Pasta is delicious, but we all know that mac & cheese is more about the cheese than the mac. This recipe takes that principle to heart by including five (five!) different cheeses. Look no further for your cheese fix than this unique take on a BBQ staple.
Delicate flavors blend together perfectly in this surprising, bright side dish. Dill, dijon mustard and red onion lighten up the rich taste of bacon and mayonnaise, while Tillamook Natural Sour Cream ties it all together.
Apple Cheddar Salad
Guaranteed to satisfy both veggie-lovers and life-long salad scorners, this recipe from Blackbelly Catering is anything but boring. Add sweet apple slices, spiced pecans, and rich Tillamook Special Reserve Extra Sharp Cheddar to transform a simple salad into a new family favorite.
Until I tried this recipe, it was hard for me to get excited about coleslaw. Too often I’d avoided bowls of soggy slaw, but those days are over. This recipe is light, crunchy, and the perfect balance of sweet and salty, with a magical ingredient: Tillamook Sour Cream.
Ketchup, BBQ sauce, and mustard are barbeque essentials, and making them from scratch is an unexpected and personal touch that will truly wow your friends and family. Just don’t let them know how easy it is to whip ‘em up!
Sweet Potato Fries
French fries are a welcome addition to any picnic table, and these sweet potato fries are no exception. The real game-changer here is the cilantro sour cream sauce. Creamy Tillamook Sour Cream balances out spicy cayenne pepper and fresh lime juice for an impressive, addictive snack.
Roasted Poblano Chipotle Cheddar Burger
And now for the main event – the burger! With this recipe from A Southern Fairytale, you’ll score major points for creativity and deliciousness. Seasoned with chipotle and roasted poblanos, topped with Tillamook Sharp Cheddar, and chipotle mayo, you’ll guarantee the main course will hold its own next to all the tasty sides.
Leaving room for dessert may sound impossible, but put your doubts aside and grab a slice of this classic pie with a cheesy twist. This unique recipe combines two kinds of apple, golden raisins and spices, wrapped in crust filled with Tillamook Sharp Cheddar. The perfect finale!
