If you're ever in a cooking or dining slump, it's time to think small. Small plates, that is. With an electric spread of tapas, favorite flavors get twisted into unique dishes, making you realize that you do still love cooking – and eating – especially if there is Wisconsin cheese involved. Standbys like meatballs and potatoes perk up with the addition of Wisconsin asiago or queso fresco.
Start the night off with Rustic Basil & Burrata Bites. The crusty baguette paired with aromatic basil and creamy Wisconsin burrata remind you that good food can be simple. Next, a vinaigrette with Wisconsin Swiss cheese adds unique flavor to roasted veggies – and the vinaigrette can even be made ahead of time. Asiago, Spinach & Artichoke Stuffed Potato Skins make regular potatoes a little jealous, and Fontina Puff Pastry Pinwheels are as delicious as they sound. Sausage and Havarti Dumplings sautéed in a little butter will leave you wanting more. Top the meal off with cheesy meatballs simmered in a chipotle chile sauce, and you've broken out of a flavor slump for good.
