Salmon and Havarti Dill Quiche

Boar's Head Havarti Dill is the perfect cheese for this Salmon quiche.
Havarti is a rich and buttery, semi-soft cheese that melts into wonderful creamy goodness.
Another appetizer idea:
Save a piece of the salmon, divide among several slices of toasted bread, top with a slice of Havarti Dill. Place under broiler long enough to slightly melt the cheese. Enjoy!

Cheese Sables with Rosemary Salt

These buttery cheese crackers were dreamed up by Anna May, a member of the online community Food52 who lives in West Dorset, England. The sables are an excellent party snack because they come together quickly and can be made in advance.

We enjoyed these at our recent wine club dinner. They were delicious and amazing with the Petite Syrah.

Cheese Puffs

Be creative with this recipe. I recently made these with Boar's Head Smoked ButterKase cheese and they were yummy. Butterkase is a semi-soft cheese with a golden natural rind, very popular in Germany and Austria for its creamy texture and buttery like taste.

I've also made these with Gruyere cheese but you can use any cheese that you like.

These are appetizer size puffs but you can make the puffs larger by dropping a 2 or 4 inch mound onto the cookie sheet. The puffs are perfect for parties.

Feta and Dill Galette with Lemony Spinach Salad

This recipe can be a salad, an appetizer or even a breakfast dish. It can be whatever you want it to be. This was one of my recipes for my last cooking class and it did me proud. Dill is a great herb with the lemon but if you wanted to use cilantro and lime go for it. See my suggestions for other ideas.

Herbed Goat Cheese Tarts

I served these appetizer size tarts with a French sparkling wine at our last wine dinner. A white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc usually compliments the tangy flavor from the goat cheese but I tried a Rose and it worked well.

The soup was also a hit, a Chicken Corn Chowder

Goat Cheese with a Honey Orange Balsamic Reduction

The goat cheese mixture is served in endive leaves instead of the traditional cheese and crackers. You'll get a little bit of sweet from the fruit and honey and a little bit of tart from the balsamic vinegar.

Also plated here is a tomato bacon relish also served in endive leaves.
