GAME DAY SNACKING GOES GOURMET WITH TILLAMOOK MINI SLICES: Cheesemaker Introduces Medium Cheddar Mini Slices for Sliders and Snacking

December 8, 2010
Horses, cars, golf, and now burgers – everything is more fun in miniature and new Tillamook Mini Slices score a bite-size win to help grillmasters serve up cheesy sliders for the big game.

Made from the cheese voted World’s Best Medium Cheddar at the 2010 World Championship Cheese Contest®, Tillamook Mini Slices help party hosts create and serve popular slider appetizers and snack platters straight from the package – no knife and cutting board required. Changing the game in home entertaining, these 2” x 2” pre-cut Mini Slices perfectly fit standard slider buns and come in 48-slice packs.

“As sliders became requested more often in restaurants, they gave us chefs the opportunity to add some artistic flair to the burger tradition,” said Chef Keegan Gerhard, owner of d Bar in Denver, Colo. “Tillamook Mini Slices give party hosts the same opportunity to dazzle game day guests with cheesy mini masterpieces.”

The award-winning Tillamook Medium Cheddar is distinctly rich and creamy with a light nutty flavor. Made using only the highest quality milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones, Tillamook Medium Cheddar Cheese is naturally aged for more than 60 days and contains nothing artificial.

Tillamook Mini Slices come in 12-oz packs of 48 Mini Slices for $4-5.
