This is going into my special grilled cheese sandwich: french bread, sharp white cheddar, paper-thin slices of ripe pear, and thick cut pepper bacon. Can't WAIT.

I cannot wait to try this new cheddar cheese! My mouth is already salivating with the thought of adding it to my macaroni & cheese recipe. When I make mac and cheese, I use 3 pounds of cheese-- extra sharp cheddar, sharp cheddar, and mozzarella. With the addition of the new vintage white, I'm planning on using it to replace the mozzarella for another taste of cheesy goodness. One can never have enough Tillamook cheese!

I look forward to buying it in the store nearby.

The first thing I would make is a fabulous grilled sandwich: sourdough bread, dijon mustard, thin sliced roast beef, thin sliced tomato, all topped with Tillamook White Sharp Cheddar and grilled to toasty perfection.

January 31st is our 22 anniversary and we'll be making our signature 4 cheese Mac and Cheese! What a treat it would be to use this Vintage Sharp Cheddar.
I can remember my Dad sharing his block of extra sharp Tillamook Cheddar in the black label on his birthday and holidays as that was his "treat"! Coming from New Zealand he always said it was the closest to what he remembered as a kid.
Can't wait to get some for myself.

January 23rd, 2013 at 11:16 am

I will be making EVERYTHING with this cheese!

I don't know if this would qualify as a recipe, but the best thing to do with a nice, white, sharp cheddar is to grate it over some homemade popcorn!

January 23rd, 2013 at 12:52 pm

Merry

I would have it just plain with crackers

January 23rd, 2013 at 12:55 pm

January 23rd, 2013 at 1:14 pm

Is this different from the X sharp white cheddar you already have avialble? Besides,being great with crackers and just by itself, we add it to chowder -- just added it to a salmon chowder we fixed the other night. I just had left overs with a grilled cheese sandwich (and yes, the white cheddar makees excellent grilled cheese too) I can't eat much yellow chees (stomach issues) but can gorge on the white stuff til my heart's content

January 23rd, 2013 at 2:00 pm

Apple Meringue Pie in a bed of Vintage Sharp White Cheddar with French Tart Dough. Holy Holy, my toes curl just thinking about it.

January 23rd, 2013 at 4:12 pm

Rosa Barillas

With this new cheese, I would cook a Salvadorean dish , called chilaquiles, is a thick tortilla, stuffed with cheese and wrapped in egg, and fried ..cooked with a tomato sauce with spices is it simply delicious .!!!

January 23rd, 2013 at 5:09 pm

Hi Holly,
Great question! This new flavor is just Vintage White Sharp, so it's between the Vintage White Medium and the Vintage White Extra Sharp. Since you're a fan of the other Vintage White Cheddars, I have a feeling you'll like this one too! I couldn't agree more about the grilled cheeses - yum!
Don't hesitate to reach out with any other questions!

One of my favorites for a snak is thin slice sharp cheddar and just smashed between a slice of bread...yummy! Sounds like a kids choice but I'm an adult and love it.

January 25th, 2013 at 4:36 pm

Christine A.

We would make our lower fat Spaghetti Squash featuring Tillamook's Vintage White Sharp Cheddar. Taking out all these extra calories so we can really add a heavy hand of cheese & get the boys to eat better food choices. Win.Win.

January 25th, 2013 at 4:40 pm

Regina Paxton

The first thing that I would make with the new Vintage Extra Sharp Cheddar is my mom's bake macaroni recipe. The sweet tang of the Extra Sharp Cheddar would be prefect!

January 25th, 2013 at 4:48 pm

I wanted to say thanks for the great idea of sending cheese for xmas presents this year. I sent it to NY for some very special folks and they loved it. Tillamook cheese is big even on the the east coast.....

January 25th, 2013 at 5:31 pm

Launi Lewis

YUM!!!! Family and I are huge Fans of Tillamook. Emailed what I would cook :) so many things was hard to decide just one. I use it for everything it is our main staple.

January 25th, 2013 at 5:54 pm

Robert

I can't wait to make our old family CHEESE ENCHILADAS recipe with the new cheese! You've never quite had enchiladas like these before. We start out with huge flour tortillas (white or yellow), spreading Red Enchilada Sauce liberally on the bottom of a large baking pan. Then we brown up some crumbled Jimmy Dean Sausage (Sage recipe) in a fry pan, then saute sliced Green Onions, Yellow Onions, canned diced Mushrooms and sliced Black Olives in with the mix. Take this mixture along with a small amount of cubed Velveeta cheese (for smoothness) mixed in with the grated Tillamook Cheddar cheese and roll it all together. Place rolled enchiladas in your baking pan. Add more sauce on top and finally smother it all with more grated Tillamook Cheddar and a sprinkling of real bacon bits on top. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown and bubbly all around. Serve with liberal dollops of Sour Cream and/or Guacamole on top.

OH YEAH! YUMMmmmmm!

I am SO excited to see Aged Cheddar! I have missed my Bandon Aged Cheddar. There is absolutley NOTHING you could cook with aged cheddar! Because...... the ONLY way to eat aged cheddar is in cubes on toothpicks! I savor every last extra sharp taste and could eat the entire loaf! It is a migraine trigger - but the only migraine trigger that I say "OH! Extra Sharp!! Yes Yes Yes! So worth 3 days of pain!"

January 25th, 2013 at 6:26 pm

I would make Chicken Cordon Bleu....this cheese would be perfect with the ham & chicken...yummy already!

Seafood poor boy with lump crab, shrimp, and craw dad tails! Next would be a peanut butter cheese sandwich! My mouth is watering just thinking about it! All I can get here is Tillamook cheddar. No other flavors! I am going through withdrawals!!!
